Deer Hunter 2014 is the latest entry in the popular Glu Mobile hunting franchise, and so far it’s become the GTA V of the iOS app store, breaking records left and right for downloads and plays. You get to hunt all kinds of animals, not just deer, but everything from wolves and bears to ducks and geese, all from the comfort of wherever you happen to have your iPhone or iPad at the time. Read on for some tips and tricks for Deer Hunter 2014!
Specialty shots are very difficult to pull off, but if you do them right, they can be very easy. Infrared vision will help, as you can use it to see right through any animal. To conserve it, though, tap it just quickly enough to see where the heart is (or the lungs). Then tap out of it and fire.
Upgrading your scope makes it FAR easier to land a heart shot or other specialty shot, since you can zoom in more for a closer look. If you are out of infrared ammo, the heart is below and behind the lungs. It’s easiest to make a heart shot from the back of the animal or from the rear-side. From the front or the front-side, it’s nearly impossible.
On some stages where you’re warned that your weapon isn’t powerful enough, you can still succeed fairly easily. You’ll kill them in one shot if you aim right, though if you aim wrong it will take more than one shot. Other times, you can use the shotgun to make the shot instead of the rifle (moreso with a lung shot than with a heart shot).
Still other times, though, you will have to earn some money first. An easy way to earn Hunter Bucks is to play the Trophy Hunt over and over, even if you know your gun isn’t strong enough to beat it. Just failing the stage will earn you 200-300 bucks apiece, which can then easily be put to better upgrades and better rifles.
Pick the right type of weapon for your missions. The assault rifle is great for missions where you have to kill an entire stampede of animals. The shotgun is good for this if you can’t afford an assault rifle. Pistols are best for small animals that run fast. Shotguns are great for big animals where you don’t have to hit a specific target.
