Hunting Tips

Because it’s a fast predator of a high-rank, the Black Bear can be quite dangerous.

As a recommended weapon, we suggest you try the Blunderbuss MG42, which has high damage and a high fire-rate.

This specific weapon allows you to hunt Black Bears from a decent distance and put them down before they can reach you.
