Huntdown Tips

Timing is Important
There will be situations in Huntdown where you will have no option but to implement a tactical approach that will require precise timing to pull it off. Being able to slide from cover to cover to avoid taking a hit and getting your timing right to avoid bullets while jumping between platforms are two super important things you need to master.
