Update from the livestream: In the Winter Solstice Event, as in other events, you will collect points by completing various tasks in the game. You need these points to unlock rewards in the course of the event. Including 5 legendary weapons, 1 legendary hunter, and other exclusive rewards.

In contrast to the other events, there is no point limit this time and the points collected and required for the individual rewards have been scaled better. So the 10,000 points that are required in total should not be so difficult to achieve. Any points you collect over 10,000 will be converted into Hunt $ after the event. But a maximum of 5,000.

This is how you collect points: To get the points, all you have to do is play Hunt: Showdown and observe the core mechanics. But you can also use seasonal opportunities to collect points.

  • Exploration: Destroy Event Tributes (Gifts)
    • 6 points per gift
    • 12 points per gift under Christmas trees
  • Exploration: Find clues and rifts for 16 points each
  • PvP: Loot dead hunters for 20 points each
