HUNTER HUNTED FAQ v 1 Author - Logan H Table of Contents I. Introduction II. Story III. The Players IV. How Do I Kill ...? V. Cheat Codes (Don't Use Them, Please) *-----------------* | I. Introduction | *-----------------* The platform game, also known as "the side-scroller", is a classic genre that has been long forgotten in the PC and console gaming world. There was once a time when almost every game was a side-scroller, but they have given way to first-person shooters (ie Quake) and chase-cams (ie Tomb Raider). Hunter Hunted, a game by Sierra Online, is a return to the good-old-days of gaming. Hunter Hunted is a side-scrolling action game. And it's a darn good one too. It has the ability to play multi-player games on a single computer by splitting the screen. This FAQ is intended to help you defeat Hunter Hunted without cheating. If you notice any typos, spelling errors, or (gasp!) incorrct information, please contact me via e-mail at . Also feel free to contact me if you have any constructive criticism or suggestions for improvement on later versions of this FAQ. If all you want to say is "This FAQ sucks!", please do not bother writing. Please note that this is not a walkthrough. This FAQ does not contain any sort of "How Do I Beat This Specific Level?" section. I decided to forego such a section because it would make this file huge, and it would mean many extra hours of work that I did not want to take. Perhaps a Level-By-Level Walkthrough will be included in the next version. One final note before I begin: I will not provide pirated copies of Hunter Hunted or tell you where to get them, so please do not bother asking. I do not believe in software piracy because it is stealing. If you want to play the game, please go out and buy it. *---------------* | II. The Story | *---------------* In the late 20th century, Earth was invaded by a technically superior race of brutal alien warriors. Five billion humans were exterminated in a matter of days. Humankind was all but obliterated. Those unlucky enough to survive were enslaved by the "Masters." Only the strongest, fastesr and smartest of these slaves leaned to endure. For entertainment, the Masters forced chosen slave fighters, satirically called "Hunters" to kill or be killed in dark, lethal arenas deep in the bowels of the decimated cities. Earth was not the only civilization overrun by the Masters. The planet Kullrathe, home to a savage species of beasts, also fell under their dominion. Beast soldiers were captured and held in concentration camps where they too were forced to play the Masters' "Hunter Hunted" game. The date is now 2015. The Masters have selected champion Hunters from each planet to fight to the death. Whether you choose to be Beast or Human, your only hope is to escape. Scattered within the Hunt Arenas are remnants of the civilizations the Masters destroyed. If you can survive long enough to collect the necessary pieces of technology, you may be able to build a vehicle and escape. You just might be able to escape. *------------------* | III. The Players | *------------------* **Garathe Den- (pronounced gaireth den) Garathe Den is one of the stronger beasts to have been brought to Earth by the Masters. Beasts are stronger and faster than humans. Never underestimate their intelligence. A human Hunter once claimed to have heard Garathe Den speak. He only spoke one word- "Pain." Garathe Den is much faster than Jake, and can jump about five times as high. Garathe Den's Weapons: Fists - Duh. Club - The best weapon for killing Jake (See "How Do I Kill Jake?" below). Easily one of the best weapons in the game. Knife - The throwing knife bites. Use it only if it is the last weapon in your arsenal. Ninja Star - An explosive weapon that is very useful for killing Bruiser. Grenade - Another fun weapon. Best when thrown into crawlspaces or tossed into trenches. Whip - The whip fires a plamsma bolt that spreads like a shotgun over a large distance. A wonderful weapon. If you hit an enemy with the whip itself (not the plasma bolt), then it does not use ammo. **Jake- (pronounced jake) Jake's records were lost during The Attack. He was about 13 when the Masters came. Jake is strong and fast for a human. He is an expert marksman and has learned explosives by reading the few remaining books. Jake's most powerful weapon is his brain. Jake's weapons deal more damage than Garathe Den's, although he is slower and less agile than the Beast. Jake's Weapons: Fists - Duh. Ninja Star - Same as Garathe Den's Ninja Stars. They take practice to be able to aim. Grenade - Grenades can be bounced off walls to produce some useful effects in Single-Player and some damn fun ones in Multi- Player. Pistol - Deals low damage but fires in three-round bursts and is excellent for taking out Molotov Cactii and Floating Mines. Shotgun - A great weapon. Powerful and has a cool spread feature. Rocket Launcher - Jake's most powerful weapon. The _only_ effective way to kill Death is with the Rocket Launcher. Use your ammo wisely and frugally. *------------------------* | IV. How Do I Kill ...? | *------------------------* *Security Robots - These annoying, flying droids fire bursts of lasers. The color of the robot denotes its power. Green is weakest, then Blue, Yellow and Red. Kill them easily by dodging their shots then running behind them and shooting their backs (Use Garathe Den's club if you have it). As they turn to face you, run to the other side and hit them from behind again. Rinse and repeat. If you are attacked by multiple security robots, run between them and hide in the shadows to make them shoot each other, then follow the above directions to kill whatever is left. Jake's rocket launcher will kill them very quickly, but don't waste your rockets unless you're close to death. *Molotov Cactus - A very annoying enemy that can only be damaged while it is open. This quirk makes the Cactus very hard to kill without taking a hit or two. The best way to kill it is to throw a grenade from a good distance, then run forward to force the Cactus to open just as the grenade hits it. *Manta Ray - If you see a Manta Ray flying toward you, shoot it! Hiding, crouching, or jumping cannot protect you from the Manta. Use Jake's pistol, Garathe Den's knives or the club to dispatch Manta Rays. *Chaos Creeper - Annoying little monsters that explode when they touch you. The best way to kill them is grenades. If you time your shots perfectly, you can use Jake's pistol or Garathe Den's club to kill them. *Ants - Ants crawl along the ground, biting your heels if you get too close. Their bites don't hurt that much, and they only seem to bite you when you stand still. If you must kill them, use a grenade. But it's probably better to save the grenade for a Bruiser or something more dangerous. *Antibodies - Floating little globs of stuff that slam into you if you bother them. They dissolve both your health and armor simultaneously. Shoot them from a distance with the Pistol or Knives. Don't waste more powerful weapons on Antibodies unless you're almost dead. *Floating Mines / Mine Generators - Come in four fruity flavors: blueberry, lime, strawberry and lemon. Shoot the generators with any weapon (except the club) if you must, or just pop the mines and run past the generators. *Laser Turrets - Laser turrets come in four types: green, blue, yellow and red (in ascending order of strength). Red fire the fastest and deal the most damage per blast. Run away from yellow and red laser turrets, but you might want to shoot blue or green turrets with your favorite weapon (but don't waste your rockets). *Chameleon - Chameleons are only dangerous if you don't see them. They can become almost invisible when they want to. If you see them, run back and forth past the monster and shoot it in the back with any non-explosive weapon. Whatever you do, do not hide in the shadows when a chameleon is nearby. The chameleon will pin you to the wall and slash you to death with its razor claws. *Bruiser - The single most dangerous enemy in Hunter Hunted, the massive Bruiser is not something you want to face without a good supply of ammo. If you are at a distance, Buiser fires a combination of missiles and red plasma blasts. When you're close, he will torch you with napalm. Get away from any walls to fight Bruiser, or the explosions will kill you. Hide in the shadows until he pauses, then come out, shoot him once or twice and get back in the shadows. If he get's too close, quickly run past himand shoot him from behind. Bruiser takes about 20 Ninja Stars, 20 Grenades, 90 Pistol rounds, 30 Shotgun shells, or 4 Rockets to kill. If you encounter two or more Bruisers, get between them and let them shoot each other. *Death - You cannot escape Death. He can move through walls, fly, and throw fireballs. Touching him saps your health and armor very quickly. Death is neigh- invulnerable to all weapons except Jake's Rocket Launcher. He needs only two rockets to kill, although you may have a difficult time hitting him twice. Kill him if you have the rockets and run like hell if you don't. (Note: "Death's Army" is by far the most fun cooperative multiplayer level) *Jake or Garathe Den - (With no weapons) Charge the enemy player and press Down+Shoot o activate the Beast's Roar or Jake's Electrocute attack to knock the enemy over. Run over to the enemy on the ground and hold Down+Forward+Punch to begin slugging them. If you've done it right, they can't get up and they get slugged to death. *Jake or Garathe Den - (With weapons) You can use grenades to pin him to the ground for an easy kill. You could also let them have three Rockets from Jake's Rocket Launcher. Or, you could use Garathe Den's club to pin them to the ground. Or you could Roar/Electrocute them, then shoot them as they get up. Whatever you do, if you want to kill the enemy without taking a lot of damage, pin him down and don't let him get up! *-----------------------------------------* | V.
