Here are our Hints for Hunting Simulator 2 on Nintendo Switch. The most trustworthy items get the most 'thumbs up' from our users and appear nearer the top!
There are numerous points of interest for you to discover as you explore each area. These are tents, towers, stands, and blinds, each of which is marked with an icon on your map after you’ve found it. Tents are fast travel points, allowing you to instantly return to that spot once you’ve found one. Towers are tall structures that give you the advantage of height, such as gaining an overhead view of an area to watch where an animal is going. Stands function similarly to towers, but are attached trees. Finally, blinds allow you to take cover and are most helpful for hunting waterfowl.
If you’re having trouble finding all of the points of interest, check out the video below to see their locations on each map.
You’ll start with a gun and ammo by default, but everything else will need to be purchased. Guns, ammo, hunting licenses, clothing, and other items all cost money. You can earn money by selling animals, but due to the high price, it can start to become a grind. Cougars are worth a great deal of money for how common they are, so some players recommend going with the cougar license as the fastest money-making method. For tips on how to use this method to quickly earn money, take a look at the video below.
Think carefully about what to spend your money on. Money is limited, and you’ll need to spend it wisely to avoid running out.
Tents and cabins serve as fast travel locations. You’ll want to find the tents in each map, along with the other points of interest in each area.
You need a license to hunt certain animals, so be sure to remember what license you currently have. You will get a penalty if you shoot an animal you don’t have a license for, shoot an animal with the wrong caliber bullets, or make other mistakes.
You can also get licenses to have animal companions hunt alongside you. They will help you track animals and will gain stat boosts if you reward them.
You’ll also want to be aware of the range to shoot from to make sure that you’ll make your shot. Weapons like bows will be much trickier to shoot with.
Calls can be used to help you lure animals closer. However, do be aware that when using a call to attract a predator, it will be cautious.
Once you’ve shot enough of a specific type of animal, legendary variants will start to appear occasionally.
