Rebel Hiding Tips
Use Small Characters
Characters with small stature, like Qiqi and Diona, are difficult to find and can hide behind rocks or structures making it hard for the hunter to find them.
Mona One Of The Best Rebel
Mona is the fastest sprinter but also can disappear and remain underground with her special dash. Using Mona is recommended if you have her.
Hide Above Houses And Structures
People tend to not search above houses so it is recommended to climb and hide in those structures. So once the game start, quickly find a statue to hide on.
Use Transparency If The Hunter Is Close To You
Using Transparency will give you a relatively safe time to hide from the hunter. It is also recommended to use this to steal favor when it is closer to the hunter.
