No not really. I bought in early but never really played. I never figured it out. My broken leg was lame (pun intended) and I didn't know I could fix it or suicide. It was a lot of determined crawling. All my hours have been put in this year.
A friend gave me some NVG but I didn't really like them. I think his mission was to go running, looting, shooting people for I don't know what end but I don't think he anticipated ending up with a hand waving bullet magnet like me. I'd rather creep around at night in the cities playing escape and evasion. A bit of childhood hide and seek tig. Skulking the ginnels, embracing shadows, always on the move trying to circumvent and evade?
Following lights at night trying to track others down barefoot is good fun for me. Nothing quiet like catching other players by surprise in the dark. You can almost smell their fear. Itch their twitching. Its a good way to end up dead but when having fun with a new spawn, well.... sometimes it's fun. I can tell you that my only successful tracking attempt (right here) ended when I get shot in the face by torch light on a dark street on the edge of Electro by two polish fellas freaked out by this unarmed barefoot English man that came creeping out of the darkness with a merry hello. Then I ran out of conversation, things got dodgy, and I got shot in the face. I wish I had captured that. It was one of my better days. Hauling barrels around the map was one of my worst.
Wow, thank you for this.
I never knew that hunters spent so much time and detail in hunting their prey.
I just thought people, especially new spawns simply killed on sight or when they were scared.
Undoubtely some of my uncountable deaths would have been from hunters who might have tracked me for a while and I was totally oblivious - all credit to them.
I've noticed that streamers on Twitch, like TheRunnungManZ rarely look behind them while travelling the countryside and seem so relaxed.
Me, I'm often looking around to see if some one is following but guess I'd never notice a hunter
