And before you release it, make sure to take a look at the ethical list for the regular bolts. ;)

I want a pistol bow as much as the next guy but honestly I have to give EW props on the ethical list for the pistol crossbow. Pistol crossbows do exist IRL but they are low/underpowered "toys" mostly with 30lbs ish draws. Way to light for anything but small game.
OTOH in this instance EW is cutting their own throats. That "realistic" ethical list will adversely effect sales.

I checked and there’s nowhere I can put the Werewolf in the lodges. Is there going to be a fix for this?

When I posted this, the ethical list for regular bolts was completely empty, that's what I meant. Either they fixed it or it was a bug on my end.

You must fill in the "big platform" the place where you put the bears

Am I missing something?

We can't buy the "wolfbane crossbow pistol" because it's a prize.

So how can someone be confused with what to buy?

And why are there silver arrows if you can't buy and use it during the helloween competition?!

Please someone enlighten me.


MfG L.E. ;)

apparently it should had a "common version" that you can buy in the store or so it say in this SU: "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"

Well it doesn't say it will be available during the event, but that would explain the availability of silver bolts.

Where is the crossbow??? Why can I only buy the gun that is the reward from the missions?

The “Wolfsbane” .308 Handgun and “Wolfsbane” Crossbow Pistol. Two new weapons with the same name. That won't ever be confusing.

The "Jason" hockey mask. Really disturbing and ridiculous to see it in this game.

Skulls instead of jack-o-lanterns. The jack-o-lanterns were so much better. It's very sad to see this years' event being treated like a horror monster/slasher/demonic/movie/game/..thing the way it has. What happened to plain, simple Halloween fun? Is this fun? Does this fit in at all with tHC?

The Halloween event comp attempts being reduced. Thanks EW, hope it helps solve the available "free time" disparity issue.

An event/competition which actually promotes shooting animals in their skulls. Wow, so not cool.

An event/competition which actually promotes shooting animals in their skulls across the entire EHR, and for a full week. Unbelievable, and unbelievably sad. If I ever hear the words "responsible hunting" again..

The Halloween event comp attempts being reduced. Thanks EW, hope it helps solve the time-disparity issue.

Putting last year's Halloween T-shirt into the store. Suddenly, somehow, my hard-earned 2017 Halloween mission pack t-shirt reward seems to be completely devoid of "special". Thank you for that EW.

A 212 moose! Very nice animal there! I only posted a 232 Moose that week. I won't be wasting my time posting in that thread anymore, but really, congrats on your moose and that winning pose Violator. :)

The 666gm$ Halloween mission pack reward. Thanks? For the "satanic" game money? I guess?

The “Wolfsbane” Crossbow Pistol Halloween mission pack reward. Thank you EW. Will the upcoming, non-Halloween version share the same weapon stats?


*Actually, this event's comps are now more fair all around, but the main event itself is still just like all the rest, catered to those with an "endless" amount of free time. Even worse, there's no actual hunting required for the main event "Campaign". Apparently, all that's needed to win the Campaign is to run around TGT picking up skulls and hoping you get a big one. I say "picking up" because they're so hard to see that you don't even need to actually look for them, you just run around and listen for the HunterMate beeps. Yeah, I'm gonna pass on all the comps, and all the skull shooting, and all the skull picking up. Maybe the missions will be fun.

This really is all very confusing, the weapons, which/what/how/when.. I should have said this above..
