Cabela's Big Game Hunter Cheats And Tips
Become a better gamesman with our help.
While Cabela's Big Game Hunter doesn't provide the smoothest hunting experience we've seen on mobile, it's a decent game to try out, with various weapons and venues to unlock, and no shortage of animals to hunt.
Here are some tips to help you out when starting the game.
How do I execute a "lung shot" or "heart shot" in Cabela's Big Game Hunter?
To get these precision shots, you'll need to load up on the X-Ray Boost, which you'll find in the Big Game Hunter store. With these equipped, you can see the vulnerable heart and lungs on animals for about 20 seconds. Use this time to line up your shot - using your scope for secondary aim if you wish - and take it. You'll know you executed it right as your bullet will fly through the air in slow motion, eventually hitting its target.
How do I unlock additional stage challenges in Cabela's Big Game Hunter?
It works on a progression system. You'll earn the first star by completing a simple task, like killing a certain animal within an allotted amount of time. From there, a second, more challenging one will open up. Complete it and the third and final task will appear with an even tougher mission. Get all three and you can begin earning stars to unlock new venues in the game.
How do I survive the "dangerous missions" in Cabela's Big Game Hunter?
These missions will often have animals charging at you, ready to strike. In these situations, you'll want to try and get a shot off with your firearm, then be prepared to move out of the way or block their incoming strike. Dodging by pressing the left or right arrows works better, as it lets you regain your stature and take another shot at the animal before it charges again.
Timing is important in these stages. Hitting the button too soon or too late will result in them having a successful attack. Take too many hits and you'll fail the stage. Practice your timing and take 'em down.
How do I earn additional cash in Cabela's Big Game Hunter?
If you don't feel like paying for it up front, you can replay completed stages in Cabela's Big Game Hunter to add to your stockpile of money. It can be a repetitive process - especially if you're trying to unlock a better firearm - but dedicated hunting fans certainly won't mind.
What does leveling up do for my character in Cabela's Big Game Hunter?
You'll level up as you continue completing objectives successfully in the game, while earning more stars. As you level up, you'll unlock access to new weapons and venues - which you'll still need to buy - and refill your energy, which you use as you proceed on each mission.
Do I need to pay for additional energy in Cabela's Big Game Hunter?
You'll start with about 14 energy at first, with each mission using about two to four depending on what you're hunting after. It does refill over time, but it takes a good half hour for each energy bar to fill up. It does refill automatically as you level up, so try to find missions where you can earn stars in a pretty quick order.
Otherwise, if you're in a hurry, you can buy an energy refill with about 20 to 70 gold, depending how much you need, although that does require using real cash to do it. It's certainly your call, but you probably won't mind waiting.
Can I level up weapons in Cabela's Big Game Hunter?
Unfortunately, no, but if you accumulate enough cash - either by earning it in-game or using an app purchase with real money - you can buy new ones. Certain weapons require you to be at a certain rank - like level 7 or higher - but they provide some much needed firepower for tougher stages in the game.
These weapons have improvements in various areas, including Damage, Scope, Clip Size, Stability and Recoil, so if you're serious about hunting, they're worth the investment.
What will buying clothes do for my character in Cabela's Big Game Hunter?
They're mostly there for appearance, though some items, like the Arctic cap, do look good on your character. Still, they don't do much when it comes to improving your performance.
What boosts are available in Cabela's Big Game Hunter?
There are several. Along with the X-Ray boost, you can buy a Weapon Shake tool that makes your aim more steady, a score multiplier, a silence boost that makes it harder for animals to hear you, a shield for the dangerous encounters, a time slowing option, a non-reload boost, a whistle that calms animals that have been spooked, a time increase and a maximum level scope. These boosts can only be used once or twice per stage, so make sure you utilize them wisely.
Do I need to pay for anything in Cabela's Big Game Hunter?
If you're a serious fan, probably. You'll run out of energy after a few turns in later missions, requiring to buy more with gold. In addition, if you want some of the better weapons and boost in the game, you'll need to use real cash to add to your gold and cash supplies.
Otherwise, you can grind through the game and wait for additional charges to fill up over time. That's your best bet, unless again, you're one of those impatient hunters that needs everything up front.
