Animal Scoring 2.0 Now Live

18.02.2020 10:00 by Expansive Worlds

Hello Hunters,

Please see below for the full list of changes in today’s update:

One of the biggest changes with the new animal scoring system, is that integrity has been replaced with a system of classes. Every species has been assigned an animal class, and ammunition is now permitted for a specified range of classes.

For example

Whitetail Deer is a class 4 animal European Bison is a class 9 animal .243 ammunition is allowed for classes 2,4,3,4,5 and 6. Therefore, .243 ammo can be used to hunt Whitetail Deer, but not European Bison.

Medals are now awarded based on the trophy rating of the harvested animal and the result of the harvest check, a set of 4 conditions you need to meet when shooting an animal. Failing to do so will result in a reduced medal rank.

The trophy rating is entirely dependent on the trophy of the animal : horns, antlers, weight, etc. and the scoring method is unique to each individual species.

All details regarding the new animal/weapon classes can be found in the in-game UI, just check your Codex.
