Will the Silverbolts also be usable for normal Crossbows or only with the new addition ?

As far I understand the The Crossbow Pistol(standard skin) can't shoot silver bolts only standard bolts
" Unlike the Wolfsbane skin, this version will take standard ammunition Rather than the Silver Bolts used for hunting the Werewolf."

so we can use only the The Crossbow Pistol with(Wolfsbane skin unlocked in competition) for werewolf. Usually event competitions rewards are given after the event is finished, won't that be to late to use it for werewolf?

There will be two new weapons that can be used to kill the Werewolf, one brand new Wolfsbane Crossbow Pistol and one new Wolfsbane .308 Handgun variation

They are not saying anything about the old .308 being able to take silver bullets, we have to wait and see.

@Tree Kiwi, Mat

So to acquire the new Wolfsbane Crossbow Pistol and a pack of Silver Bolts you have to place in the Hallloween competition, but if you buy the additional standard skin Crossbow Pistol
you will not be able to use Silver Bolts with it during the Halloween Event even if you buy additional Silver Bolts?

There will be two new weapons that can be used to kill the Werewolf, one brand new Wolfsbane Crossbow Pistol and one new Wolfsbane .308 Handgun variation.
◾The Wolfsbane .308 Handgun and a pack of Silver Bullets can be unlocked by completing a new mission pack.
◾If missions are not your thing, the new Wolfsbane Crossbow Pistol and a pack of Silver Bolts can be won by placing in the Halloween competition.
◾The Crossbow Pistol will also have an additional standard skin, that can be purchased in the store. Unlike the Wolfsbane skin, this version will take standard ammunition rather than the Silver Bolts used for hunting the Werewolf.
◾Additional Silver Bullets/Bolts will need to be purchased/acquired.
[/color]◾Both new Wolfsbane weapons will be usable after the event with standard ammunition, but won’t be available in the store.

P.S. I understand that only the Wolfsbane Weapons can only use Silver Bolts/Silver Bullets but that was not completely clear if you buy the additional standard skin Crossbow pistol
if you can use Silver Bolts with it if you purchase them during the Halloween Event.

Hi all!

Just to clarify a little. In order to hunt the werewolf you WILL need the special equipment from either the missions or placing in the competition (so not just a case of using silver bullets in a standard .308, and it wont be possible to use silver bolts in the standard pistol crossbow). The mission pack itself has been designed to be fun/challenging but at the same time wont take you a crazy amount of time, perhaps 6-8 hours all said and done. The event will run a longer this year as well, so you'll get plenty of opportunity to complete the missions and get some werewolf hunts in by the time it wraps-up.

Of course, we are still in-development so things may change (a possibility is we make the .308 pistol the competition prize and the crossbow pistol the mission reward), but otherwise the core way of doing things as mentioned above should apply!

Thanks for clearing things up Graham!

Hopefully no Kill an airborne White-Tailed Ptarmigan with a longbow, while chewing gum, patting your head and rubbing your stomach at the same time, type of missions. :D

Wouldn't mind being able to get both weapons to use on the werewolf. I probably won't have as much time to try and place in the top spots in order to win the pistol. Can't wait to see the extra touches you've made to this year's event. :)

Awesomeness! It'll be a scary one. X-bow pistol...sounds good to me. Thanks for the SU, TK and thank you EW for all your efforts in making this event as cool as it sounds. ;) Peace.
