Jackal killing region 9

AueglAuegl New MemberRegistered Users 4 Posts
Still learning this and enjoying but having a difficult time killing the jackals (10 of 'em) in region 9 standard. Any hints or tips? I'm using a pitbull at 6799 power and have to shoot 3-4 times and still may not kill them. Thanks

    I always used my rifle for one hit kills.

    You shouldnt be having this problem. It might be the device you are using, but its really simple, shotguns are stronger at close range, so dont shoot at them when until they are close. aim for the head or lung and you should kill them first shot.

    Its up to you whether you want to look down the sights or hip fire, what ever is easiest for you.

    Hope this helps, if not go ahead and say so

    I'm on an iPad 2. I try to shoot them close but just not having the success I think I should. I don't have the problem with any other animals when they are running by. The big ones seem easier. The dang jackals just seem tough...for me anyway. I tried my rifle but the scope is too close and I not that good hip shooting it. I'll just keep trying. Thanks for the replys.

    Sorry, should have suggested that with using the rifle first go into upgrades and fit the lowest scope you can.

    I'm on an iPad as well and had the same issue with the jackals at first. For hunts that require 8 or more kills, try an assault rifle while using open sites so you can target the next one quickly and it doesn't really matter if you hit them from close or far away.

    I don't even mess with them anymore. I change regions rather than deal with them. They were hard enough before the update but after the update they are super hard and frustrating so I just skip them. Ridiculous that guns I can kill a Rhino with won't phase them in region 9. No problem killing the same animal in region 7.

    I use a pistol or assault rifle. If you hit them in the head or center mass, they drop at any range.

    I'm using the grantham oxford with the first upgraded sight. 5.5 zoom, I think. It's working a lot better than my shotgun.

    Wait til you get to the armor plated wolverines in region 10. I am using the headsman elite pistol and giving the 1 or 2 quick shots with no problem, no scoping, when they are close. In fact, the headsman elite is way better than the region 10 pistol. I use the headsman elite on every single region 10 contract hunt now. It makes it fun. grab it if they put it on a cheap sale soon.

    I always use my assult rifle and never have problems. It might take two shots if you miss the head shot. But it is a lot faster shooting than the rifle or the shotgun
