Very very disagree. Such links should not be publicized.

I used to think spear hunting was unethical too. Then I watched this very video several weeks ago, and completely changed my mind. The effectiveness of that shot simply cannot be disputed. It was clean, fast and easily as ethical as a well placed bullet or arrow.

No matter what the weapon, there's always a chance of a bad shot that leads to undue suffering. It comes down to patience and whether the hunter is respectful and responsible. In the right hands a spear can work just as well as any other weapon.


In my country is spear unethical even for kill wounded (for example) wild boar... on every type (big, small, ...) of animal you must use specific weapon to ethical "end" of the wounded animal. Kill animal with spear was ethical in stoneage... now we have rules and ethics. Ethics are a set of moral principles that guide a person’s behavior. I understand some one can say it is wrong... but did we still use traps and spears for Bears or Mammoth?

I just want to clarify, I think they are too specialised of a weapon to make ethical on the whole, but when used correctly, which is what the video was designed to show, they are very efficient at killing an animal fast. I agree that they could never be made ethical for everyone to use.

Thanks for the update. Looking forward to seeing how the new vehicle performs. I'll hold off until judgement until then.

I've never been a big fan of spear hunting. I agree that when used right it will put an animal down very quickly. Just not my thing.

Mission pack completed. Not so famous like Halloween pack this year (its not so easy to make another great event) but it was fun. Cant wait for new vehicles... today i watch stream and now im so excited!!! I hope for fair price but for me maybe
does not play a huge role. Lets hope for some customization of car (like IRL). From what I've seen today, you've done an incredible job on this car.

Really? You want car customization in a hunting game? I find it hard enough to accept a Jeep in a hunting game like Classic. I guess the world would be a boring place if we all liked the same stuff.

I do agree. I went back and watched the stream and although I see only one purpose for the Jeep (setting up reserves) I have to admit that they've done a great job with the model. It looks pretty nice and they've implemented some interesting details. But I constantly find myself wondering who it caters to, and what purpose it serves besides the aforementioned.

Well first of all i never go to hunting with out car... bcz how i can take some harvest animal? Of course is near by... deep in forest i dont need them but after hunt its good to know i dont need to take my trophies km on foot... and when is goes wrong and bad weather catch me in the field and there is no tree stand or cabin near by... sure i sit in the car. Its more natural than teleport for gm$.

Of course hunting from the car is... redneck entertainment (sry if i hurt someone with this statment) but car is part of IRL every hunting. In the game in first day everybody try some crazy things but later use it for same purpose as i say it. Maybe will be fine if you have car you pay less gm$ for taxidermize.

Customization... well like cabin i expect someone will be rly happy if will have something to customize his vehicle... paint, stickers etc. Its not necessary, its not main thing to focus for devs but why not?

Nice to have a vehicle but horses would have been so great (in this or COTW).

Hi just wondering with the "scout" weapon since it's getting released in Dec does this mean it's going to be only top 3 on the Xmas comp that are going to have a chance to get the weapon or will this be buyable to everyone in Dec??? :?

Yo, can we get an answer from you TK?
