|“|| Now your're the Hunter. With the Bearkiller Rifle in hand, track the Old Bear to its den.|
The Hunted, Part One must be completed beforehand to unlock the challenge. During the challenge, the player chases The Old Bear throughout Mystery Lake. The bear will stop at numerous locations and wait until the player is close enough to attack, where they must shoot the bear with the rifle so it can continue retreating back to its den. The challenge ends when the player finally confronts the bear at the den.
Challenge Start Edit
The challenge begins right where The Hunted, Part One left off, with the player having entered the Trapper's Homestead and armed with the Bearkiller Rifle. The Old Bear can be heard outside banging on the door. The player begins with a Hunting Rifle and 10 rounds of ammunition.
The bear will be directly outside the homestead and must be shot with the rifle immediately or else it will attack the player. The bear cannot be killed so it is best to only shoot the bear when it has stopped at the designated locations. The bear will follow a path and must be shot to force it to continue retreating back to the bear den. The easiest way to track the bear is to follow the bear prints in the snow and the drops of blood. If the player stops for an extended period, or if it heavily snows, the tracks will disappear.
The following list are the locations that the bear will stop at in order from the Trapper's Homestead to the den.
- Max's Last Stand
- Tunnel Collapse
- Camp Office
- Frozen Creek
- Clear Cut
- Logging Camp
- Train Loading Area
- Mystery Lake (Northern Access)
- Mystery Lake (Southern Access)
- Ice Fishing Huts
- Bear Den
Challenge Finish Edit
Warning: *Do not read if you do not want to be spoiled on the ending of the challenge.*
Once the player has finally reached the cave where the bear is hiding and gets close enough to the entrance, the Old Bear will charge out and pounce on the player. Shooting the bear will not stop it from attacking. The bear will slowly drag the character back into the cave. As the screen fades to black while the sounds of growling and chewing can be heard, the words To Be Continued appear. Implying a third part to The Hunted Challenge.
*End of Spoilers*
- Wolves can be found roaming near the trail the bear takes. It is recommended to use flares or alternative ways of making wolves flee instead of shooting them. Ammunition is limited and the rifle is the only weapon that can make the bear retreat.
- The Camp Office will always have three rifle cartridges on top of the filling cabinets. Make sure to grab these in case you run out of bullets while hunting the bear.
- You will find more bullets in the first rooms of the barrage, before the wolves.
- There is a dangerous way to spook the bear without shooting: you can fake charge him. It does not always work so be ready to aim and shoot fast.
- The Dam has a single bullet on the floor in the first main room and a box of five bullets in the room on the right. This should eliminate any ammo concerns.
