Cannot connect to the game servers from the UK though - not so very nice ;) Only managed to get the Fox so far!


We are aware of the issue and currently investigating it, sorry for the inconvenience! :(

The Yotes also spook again like they used to!

Can I leave them in the area when I log or do I have to pick them up? Description has no info about that.

You can leave them in the reserve when you quit, if that's what you mean. They are treated the same as any other regular deployable item in this respect.

i kinda wana set up a ground blind in a hirsch field with the .223 and a decoy?. this viable? or will i get 1 and the rest shoot out of render not to return.
also whats the difference between the 2 or is it purley cosmetic


Well, the distraction means that within the attraction radius an animal has a lower chance to notice you, since they are preoccupied by the decoy in sight.

There is not difference between the two variants, it's just for you to enjoy the variety.

As for the gameplay, it is for you to try our different combos and find out for yourself how you like to use them ;)

Ok, so if I understand this right, there is no attraction, just distraction, correct? Basically still have to call the predator in, and (optional) set up the decoy to get it to that perfect spot. Are my assumptions correct?

Thqnks for the update.
This looks cool but another item to buy?! :(

I have a question to who update the game with the web launcher. The update progress worked with full download or not?

I want to move to the web version and I want to make sure the update problem is fixed.
Thanks.

There is also an attraction. When an animal sees the decoy, it becomes attracted to it (it overrides the caller) and comes to it to check out what the hell it is :)

It should not trigger the full download. We had some hiccups in the first 30 min after the release that caused a full download for some players, but now it should work without a hitch.
