Rebel Hiding Tips

Use Small Characters

Small Chara

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

Top Of Houses

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.

Hiding up there in dragon spine is pointless since you’ll freeze to death. You will eventually need to go near a fire
That’s really the easiest field to win as a hunter

How many attempts can I do this event in a day until it stops giving me coins? Someone on youtube said 3 but I haven't found any article proving that yet.
