Don't really get the Euro rabbit mission (3 bunnies with 100% harvest value) when using the .22 plinkington. Or really - I don't get the .22, the bunny and the value. I can hit one in the head and it gets for example 94% in harvest value. Another one in the body and get 100%. And yet another one in the body and get like 96%. ETC. ETC. All insta-deaths. Hmmm?
I would love to see the .338 Lapua Magnum! (And an African reserve of course...)

Strange... when I killed the bunnies on the spot with the Plinkington (they all made that "death jump"), I always had a HV of 100. Distance was around 40 meters in my case. I'm quite sure about it because I just did it for the event mission.

Yeah ok. Then it has to be something with the distance because I've shot 'em much closer. +-10m. I also found it strange but off I go soon again and let's see if there'll be any difference.

Ah man, I was REALLY looking forward to this, quite disappointed to find out it's weapon-specific. Had done the first one only to find out you need a compound bow for the second--fair warning to anyone who doesn't own one. That's really disappointing for a holiday mission set :( Oh well!

The distance was the issue. Too close and it affected the value. So it seems at least.

I did all of mine with the 12GA Single Shot, not the Plinkington. They all counted. Didn't see a weapon specific requirement.

From the mission objective: "As for dessert, I was thinking something a little more international. Let's go for a pot pie made from elegant European Rabbits! I would recommend a small caliber for these guys, preferably the .17 HMR, but you're welcome to use any gun. Just make sure you nail an acceptable harvest value. I'll need this order quickly so the rest of the dishes don't come out cold!"
