How To Play Target Races
Shoot At Targets To Progress The Course
Targets will be in ablaze so you can easily see them in the race. Shoot at them in order to progress through the course. Successfully shooting a target will cause it to disappear, allowing you to pass through!
Start The Match With A Bow
The playing field is leveled at the start of the match. All players will be starting with a bow to shoot at the targets. This means that you need to get up close to the target, and there is a delay when you fire, and when the arrow is released.
You Can Get Better Weapons In The Match
You may come across some barrels as you make your way through the course. Barrels whose icons are weapons can be run over which will equip you with a better weapon. This lets you shoot target faster, and from further away!
Run Over Barrels To Regenerate Stamina
Barrels with a lightning icon will also be scattered around the course. You can run over these barrels to instantly replenish some stamina for your horse, allowing you to sprint faster!
