Weapons are used to hunt. Currently, 4 different weapon classes are available: rifles, handguns, shotguns, and bows (including crossbow). Each class of weapons has unique traits and thus requires a different game style. Many of the weapons have variants, which are essentially the same weapon with a different look.

Rifles[]

Rifles are the favorite option for many hunters. Provided with scopes, they can be very effective in long-range shooting. From the .223 Docent for hunting foxes and coyote, to the powerful Rangemaster 338 for moose and Bison.

Shotguns[]

Shotguns are useful tools for hunting small to medium game. Whilst they have a considerable lower range than rifles, their spread makes it easier to hit vital parts if the shot was placed poorly. However, one has also to consider the lower penetration of shotgun pellets. Mostly used to hunt ducks and geese, or to stop angry animals charging towards the hunter.

Bows[]

Bows are the option for players that like stalking and sneaking up on animals. While their penetration is excellent, they lack the range and accuracy of rifles.

Handguns[]

Handguns can be used as a backup weapon, protection against an angry animal, or as the primary weapon choice. Combined with hard cast projectiles they can be used effectively against any animal the player encounters.
