Identity V Hunter Tips & Tricks⇓

Target And Eliminate One By One

Don’t target multiple survivors at a time because, in the end, you will get nothing. Target a specific one and keep yourself there until it gets eliminated. Because when you capture a survivor with a rocket-chair, it would not eliminate instantly. And if you leave the place, other survivors can rescue him/her.

There is a disadvantage too; it takes time and other survivors can take advantage. To get rid of this problem, place puppets in multiple places(near rocket chairs), and then you will be able to teleport.

Use The Listening Skill⇓

There would be an ear icon on the right side. Tap it and you will be able to know the survivor’s location. But if they are quiet, then you can not.

Hit Them When They Are In-Range⇓

You should not hit blindly, time your attack and hit when they are in range. Because if they get successful at dodging, you will get stuck there for a few seconds.

Unlock Talents Wisely⇓

Based on your hunter(you choose for the match), unlock the talents. The talent guide is mentioned above. Tap a talent icon to know the benefit. Tap the reset button to reset the talent tree.
