Welcome to the beginner’s guide to Deer Hunter 2014! Deer Hunter is one of the original hunting game franchises, and Glu’s latest entry into the series on iOS and Android does not disappoint. Like the other games, this game puts you into a variety of different hunts, with many different guns, to hunt many different animals (not just deer, obviously). Read on for the beginner’s guide to Deer Hunter 2014!
At the beginning you start off in the Pacific Northwest. This is the first stage of the game. Here you will find deer, bears, deer, moose and ducks, all in a number of varieties. This is “stage one” of the game. The second stage will be North Africa, while the next one after that will be British Columbia.
There are a number of different stages to play in each stage. The main stage is the Hunting Series, which there is a limited but high number of in each stage. Playing this will help you progress and figure out which upgrades you need. The Trophy Hunt is the main, most difficult hunt. You have five rare animals that you have to kill per Trophy Hunt, and after you complete all five of the hunts, you will unlock the next region. Contract hunts, which are fairly random stages, will be available as well.
Trophy hunts cost you 2 energy to play, while every other type of hunt will cost you only 1 energy. They are worth it, though, because they will earn you far more Hunter Bucks whether you win or lose. Hunter Bucks are the main currency of the game, and are denoted by the icon that looks like a band of money. Generally, you earn Hunter Bucks for a win or a loss, and you earn 1/5 for a loss what you would for a win.
Different hunts require different types of guns although your main gun will always be your rifle. Your rifle will be required to be at a certain power level in order to play stages, and the upgrades for the rifle cost more than for the other guns. The rifle fires one bullet, and takes a long time to reload, but is very powerful.
Your other guns include the assault rifles, the pistols, and the shotgun. The assault rifle is similar to the rifle, except that it’s less powerful, but you can fire far more shots in a shorter period of time. The pistol is small and handheld, and can fire fairly quickly. The shotgun fires a cloud of shot out of the shells, and is very powerful but slow-firing.
