Crouch Run GlitchGlitches
If you aim down your sights with any weapon and double tap B then un aim after the second tap you will have the abilty to crouch run. Works 99.99% of the time!
Faster than running while crouchedGlitches
Sometimes when you go prone and swap to crouch fast enough you will be crouched and run as if you put on a 2x run, when this happens he sound you make stays at crouch level.
There are persistent rumors that it is possibly to very rarely encounter Bigfoot/Sasquatch roaming the game, especially around Halloween. However, these rumors are currently unconfirmed and may be the result of a joke.
Hunting the Starter Deer
At the start of the game, there will be a starter White-tailed deer in the distance. Before you can hunt this deer, you'll need to select a primary weapon.
Press the "Esc" button to bring up a menu and scroll down to "Inventory." Under the inventory, you'll find a list of weapons, sights, ammo, lures, equipment, and binoculars. There are three starter weapons that you can select: a rifle, a handgun, or a shotgun.
The 243 Rifle is the only weapon at the start of the game that comes with a scope. Later in the game, you can upgrade your weapons and purchase new items under the inventory section.
Select the 243 Rifle as your primary weapon and return to the playing field. With the rifle in hand, you'll need to approach the deer slowly. Usually, deer are very skittish and will easily be scared away, but because this is a starter deer, you can get very close to the target.
If you're having trouble spotting the deer, press "E" to bring up your binoculars to see the deer or press "Tab" to activate Huntermate. Once you are in range of the deer, you can shoot the deer standing up, crouching, or in the prone position.
Use Hunting Positions to Improve Your Accuracy
The prone position is the most stable for a hunter to shoot a target. To go into the prone position, press "Z." Alternatively, crouching is the second best hunting stance to shoot an animal; press the "Control" button to crouch.
Target an Animal's Vital Organs for a Successful Hunt
When aiming at an animal, you must target the vital organs of the animal to perfect a kill shot. The vital organs of any animal are the lungs, heart, liver, and neck. Aim for any of those areas, and the hunt will be successful.
Use Your Headlamp When it Gets Dark
If the light begins to fade and you are searching for an animal, press "L" to bring up your headlamp. The light from your headlamp will not chase animals away, and it is an effective tool to use in the evening.
Track Your Target and Claim Your Reward
After you have shot an animal, search the ground area for their tracks. Animal tracks will light up in blue. Press "E" to follow the tracks of your trophy animal. Press "E" to claim your trophy when you come across your kill.
How to Improve Your GameplayHints
Head to the Lookout Towers
When you get a new map area in the game, the entire area will be dark and unexplored. On the map, you will only see "Lookout towers," indicated by a green dot.
Go to the lookout towers and climb them to the top. Once you have climbed to the top of the tower, it will open up a light that will show you where to find your outposts.
Learn to Track
The game rewards players who pay attention to details. Tracking animals is one of the most critical skills for a beginner hunter to acquire in the game. When you're on the hunt, be on the lookout for clues that animals leave behind, such as footprints and droppings.
The clues animals leave behind are your map to finding them. To help you understand the different clues, you must learn to use the HunterMate tool. Additionally, when you're tracking animals, always remember to be downwind from the animal, as they can smell your scent.
Use Scents and Calls to Attract Animals
In this realistic hunting game, animals are a lot smarter than you think. You will need to use animal calls and scents to attract them and get them within shooting range.
Animal calls imitate the noises that animals make; you're speaking their language and bringing them closer to you. At the same time, using different scents will disguise your scent and stop approaching animals from running away.
Use the Right Weapon
One of the best tips for new players is to use the correct weapon and ammunition to hunt an animal. Each weapon in the game is designed to hunt specific animals, and matching your weapon to the size of the game will increase your success.
Hunting a large animal with a weapon that is too weak will result in a failed attempt. At the same time, hunting a small animal with a weapon that is too strong will ruin your trophy.
How to Earn Fast CashGuides
One of the biggest challenges hunters face in the game is earning fast cash. Several locations in the game provide hunters with an opportunity to earn some fast cash.
The first secret hunting location is found in Medved Taiga National Park. For this location, you will be hunting Reindeer on a frozen lake. Reindeer drink water between the hours of 04:00 am and 08:00 am, which provides you with an opportunity to hunt them.
On the lake, you will be able to spot several Reindeer drinking from the frozen lake during the early hours of the morning. To hunt these Reindeer, you will need to have two rifles and a tripod in your inventory.
The ZARZA-10.308 STALKER and the F.L. SPORTER.303. LAMINATED Rifles are perfect for this hunting location. Drop your hunting tripod approximately 150 meters away from the herd of Reindeer.
Line up and aim for the deer using your rifle and tripod. Shoot as many Reindeer as you can before they spook. If there are any trophy Reindeer in the herd, shoot them first with a vital shot.
Be on the lookout for any signs of Eurasian Lynx, as they drink at the same time as Reindeer and will spook the herd. If you spot any Eurasian Lynx when hunting Reindeer, shoot them and leave them. Don't collect a Eurasian Lynx; it will not spawn again if left.
After you have harvested the reindeer herd, pick up your tripod and move to a new herd on the frozen lake. You can shoot several herds of Reindeer throughout the morning period and target diamond animals to make the most cash.
Te Awaroa National Park is the second hotspot for making cash in the game. Te Awaroa National Park is home to thousands of Red Deer. These deer drink water from 06:00 am to 10:00 am and can be spotted near the river edges and next to lakes.
Set up your tripod and rifle combination along the bank of the lake and search for a male Red Deer in a herd. If you miss a shot at a male Red Deer, it will spook but return to its drinking zone later in the morning.
A male Red Deer hind will pay up to $1000 per hind. Target all the male deer in the herds located at different drinking zones. Don't shoot any of the female Red Deer; shooting one will break one of your existing zones and will significantly affect your earning potential in the future.
Emerald Coast is another money-making hotspot in the game. At the bottom of the beach area on the Emerald Coast, you will find several Crocodiles lying on the ground. Crocodiles are the highest-paying animal in the game.
The best time to hunt crocs on the beach is at 12:30 pm. To hunt these reptiles, you will need to equip yourself with two: 300 CANNING MAGNUM Rifles and a HOUYI RECURVE BOW.
Any defensive weapon will work against an aggressive crocodile. To hunt them, aim for a neck shot. Crocodiles don't easily spook; however, if you do spook them, shoot in front of them and lead the shot.
You can shoot any type of Crocodile; it doesn't matter whether they're female or male. You can even target Crocodiles that are in the water. Crocodiles don't sink once you've shot them in the water; they will float back to shore, and you can collect them.
