Because the Knight excels at using his guards to chase and corner Survivors, perks that help you in chases or give you benefits for injuring or downing Survivors are generally best. At the same time, the Knight can damage Generators quickly using his Guardia. The best perks, then, either improve your ability to chase Survivors or makes damaging Generators more powerful. Listed first are “General” perks, i.e. perks available for free without purchasing any DLC chapters or Killers. Then, we’ll list unique perks, i.e. perks that you can only get by purchasing the associated Killer, or by purchasing them from the Shrine of Secrets.
