Well a dev did state in the last QnA that camo doesn't work as a set but seprate so people can make their own custom look.
So if you only had B&C boots on you would get those camo stats but only on your boots. (just guessing here :lol: )
I guess backpacks only give camo when a deer looks at you from behind.


from behind? But i have on me jacket... so? 2x camo... or does nothing.

I think you have the pictures confused for the two new white backpacks. When saving the backpack pictures for the Wiki I noticed the file names which don't fit.

I think the camo pattern had the correct description but the file names were wrong.

Now thy have them in the wrong place and the pattern dose not match the description

Your guess is as good as mine, all I know is the dev Patrick Enz said:

When using all the pieces of a clothing set like ByC do you get a bonus in camo by wear the whole set or just the individual bonus from pieces?

No. There is no whole set bonus. The reason behind is that we want the player to be free to customize their character as they see fit.

I'm really looking forward to the Halloween event as I had just missed out on last year's zombie elk when I joined. I don't know if I'll get the chance to participate in the double XP weekend (early muzzleloader season!) but that is great opportunity to those who can join in. And I haven't bought any backpacks yet, but I just might grab one so I can join in on the raffle. Does buying multiple backpacks get you multiple entries or is it just one entry per person?


You get multiple entries for multiple backpacks bought so yeah, your chances will be higher.

Ravenousfox wrote:I have a question...
What if you already own one camo backpack from the first release are you still entered in the raffle or do you have to re-buy another camo backpack?
'

Only backpacks bought after the announcement and before the end of the week will participate in the raffle, sorry.

Good feedback, we will add backpacks and scarves to the bundles. But please bear in mind that any extra camo item adds to your concealment package, we don't really have a "complete" set, i.e. no combo will ever give 100% camo as in animals will not see or hear you.

Indeed,we "fixed" following HooCairs's feedback and are now re-fixing it :)

Thanks for the update!

Now we just need a "classic" backpack to match the Doc-Monsignor outifts :)

Btw, is there a plan that the backpacks will someday "work" as a gameplay element, as in, you would need to equip a backpack to take advantage of the extra carry capacity?

Would you like that? This was one of the ideas we played around with when we were discussing bringing the actual backpacks into the game, but we decided against it.

Well, i for one like it if items have a functionality in addition to the optics.

Can only speak for myself, though, as was already pointed out ;)
