Not at all, you get different amount of points for different animals, you can hunt whatever you choose. "Flying rats" give you 5 points each.

But I am bit sad not to see any special collectables. Always enjoyed those.

Tiers for points look interesting, although you should consider using weapons instead of animals in those. It isnt that hard to just run around VdB mountains for example with powerful rifle and 12x scope and get plenty of ibex in short period of time. It is even easier than doing the same but with whitetails.
Anyway, nice event!

EDIT: And looking at some hunting stats, that is exactly what people on top do: Long range, ibex... Event is turning into Run'n'gun again :-(

im sure u can get more pooints from whitetails and other animals on reserve that from ibex. u must just know how to play right this game.

I'm assuming ptarmigan must be shot airborn even though it isn't stated? If not they are the only things not being registered on my end.

Nice, a lot of Polar Bears, Bobcats, and Ibex are going to meet their maker before Christmas.

Good hunting all.
Thanks, ~Jeff

A humble question: how?

Right now there are about a hundred competitions to choose from. Having scanned over the names and descriptions, I couldn't really recognise which one is the mission linked to the Holiday Event.



And, in case you're still looking for a name for that event, how about "Rudolph's Rampage - The festive massacre in the EHR" ?

This idea of fostering the shooting of any animal in sight goes very contrary to not only any idea I have of hunting, but also of Christmas time.

I think that the first competition starts tomorrow. Event missions and competitions are alternating, and today a mission started.

Thank you. That's probably indeed the case given the numbers of comps and missions. I guess I could've guessed myself.
