How to Earn Event Points

Events points can be earned by exploring the map to find event objects, playing the objective, and participating in PVP. Event points are shared in the pool with your teammates throughout a hunt. Don’t worry, even if you die, you will still gain event points. A new mechanic allows event objects to be highlighted in Dark Sight up to 10 meters with the default range. This can be boosted up to 70 meters with the new vapors.
