You'll see that she gets to about 40m to me, give or take, and she does the new animations (alert). She then did exactly what I thought she would, she got into attack mode. The only reason she didn't charge was because she could not pathfind to me, across the water. I've seen them do this on numerous occasions, all the dangerous animals that attack actually. If they do not have a straight path to you, they break off the attack and flee. So as you can plainly see, they are fixed and are reacting as they should, some will flee, some will attack. Which was not the case before this patch, as every one of them would flee from great distances.

If you are still having this problem, I have no idea what to tell you then.

Ok good one, I saw 50 mt in your binoculars, unfortunately so far I couldn't get close at 100 mt in crouch walking. And I saw their very different behavior from your vid, but exactly like fleeing deers.

I havnt done enough testing to determine if this is a pattern yet, but if you make the bear flee, for example running around until you find a fleeing track, it seems more likley the bear will charge once your close enough after it has already fleed. Thats the way its worked out for me now twice. The one bear i tracked from roaming tracks, fleed at 50m, then charged when i found her. Just a little more info :) happy hunting

Nice vid Chuck. I just did 5000+m on WRR with perfect sound :D and found three different PB tracks that went from roaming when I found them, to fleeing when I got close, and back to roaming after I carefully stalked them. I didn't get close enough to get attacked; two of them went way out on an ice floe where I would never have harvested them, and one I shot at 74 meters.

As a bow hunter the bear fixes are most welcome. Was extremely situationally luck based before and very frustrating. This is much better

I got mine figured out. Had to restart my computer and update the launcher.
