Some basic tips for starting out in the Hunter: Call of the Wild. Some may be more helpful than others.

Tips for Hunting

I would give a few quick tips that I use a lot when I play.

  • Don’t run unless you are travelling between locations. (ATV is also great for this). Running will spook any animals that are close by. 
  • Running/walking on the roads is quieter than running/walking in the vegetation. 
  • Wearing a backpack increases your visibility and noise levels significantly. 
  • Don’t use callers too often. It spooks the animals. I tend to call at 30 – 45 second intervals. This one really bugs me when I play in multiplayer. 
  • ATV’s are useful but they do scare animals. I used to use them all the time. But i wont be seen dead using one now. 
  • Having your flaslight on at night does not spook the animals or increase your visibility level. I sometimes find it easier to spot an animal I’m tracking without it. 
  • Keep you weapon loaded. There is nothing worse than having an animal nearby and you can’t shoot it. And it can be handy if there’s a bear nearby. 
  • Hunting pressure. When you down an animal a purple spot appears on your map at the place you shot it. It roughly takes 30 seconds to 1 minute to appear. No shot = no kill. The pinker/purpler the spot the more chances of animals avoiding the area. Best to move around.

My first game was Naughty Dog’s Crash Bandicoot (PlayStation) back in 1996. And since then gaming has been my main hobby. I turned my passion for gaming into a job by starting my first geek blog in 2009. When I’m not working on the site, I play mostly on my PlayStation. But I also love outdoor activities and especially skiing.
