As mentioned before, Counterforce is a perk that belongs to the Survivor, Jill Valentine. Jill Valentine is part of the “CHAPTER 20: Resident Evil” DLC, so to get this perk for all Survivors you have to buy the DLC and prestige her to Level 3 to unlock it. Another way to get the perk is to wait for it to show up in the Shrine of Secrets, where you can buy it with 2000 Iridescent Shards instantly for all Survivors. Here are all of the 5 best Counterforce builds in Dead by Daylight:
