|“|| The old bear is after you. Nothing can kill him but the Trapper's old Bearkiller Rifle. Get to Trapper's Cabin before the Bear gets you.|
|“|| Avoid the Bear. Get to Trapper's Cabin in Mystery Lake.|
Challenge Start Edit
Starts with the bear on top of you mauling you down to 10% condition and bleeding and exhausted. You do have a Old man's beard wound dressing in inventory to use and there is a cellar door close-by for immediate shelter.
- Except for a few additions (The Old Bear, additional Distress Pistol case, the special spawn point) the game is a normal Sandbox and weather and loot distribution will be randomized as usual. Difficulty is set for Stalker.
- Other than the Distress Pistol, no ranged weapons exist in this challenge nor will you find materials to craft any. A Hunting rifle may be found, however there are no bullets to fire from the rifle.
The Old Bear Edit
The Old Bear is special and cannot be killed. He is however still scared by fire and by rounds shot from the Distress pistol. This is critical to your survival because he will continue to hunt you for the entire challenge.
After mauling you the first time, he wanders away a short distance where he waits. After a little while, he will move towards you again. Scaring him off is the best way to get him off your trail long enough to make forward progress on your journey. But he always comes back, often running to catch up to your location, but walking once in detection range. The bear will appear in new regions if the player enters them. Upon entering Mystery Lake the bear may be in front of the player where they will need to use either the distress pistol, flares, or fire to ward it back.
Game ends when you enter Trapper's Homestead.
