The first tip for a Hunter is to closely watch the directions of the Rebels during the preparation phase. Moreover, keep a note of the props that are available on the map that you are playing. As a result, you will only have to look for a limited amount of items leading to efficient time management.

Lastly, always contest the favor and do not let Rebels steal them. The increased movement speed for 30 seconds is a valuable upgrade in this time-bound event.

Tips for Rebels in Windtrace event

Just like the Hunter, the Rebels can choose to play with certain abilities. Transparency seems like the best option here, because it can help in running away from the Hunter and escaping tough situations.

Another tip for the Rebels is to hide as far as they can from the spawn. As aforementioned, a skilled Hunter will always keep a note of the Rebels’ directions in the preparation time, and hiding in far-off places is a viable strategy to avoid getting caught. Accordingly, climb high places like trees because they are the most difficult to search while hunting.

Last, but not least, make the best out of the Minimap that shows the location of the Hunter. With the help of this feature, you can always stay one step ahead of the Hunter and constantly change your hiding spot.
