As the Huntress, you can eliminate one player, which can make or break the game. To help the Villagers win, here are some Huntress tips:
Trust but Verify:
Resist the urge to eliminate a player too soon. Coordinate your attack with insights from roles like the Seer or Paranormal Investigator for a more informed decision.
Guard Your Identity:
If the Werewolves know you are the Huntress, they will likely target you first since you can eliminate one of them. Keep a low profile and carefully determine the most strategic player to eliminate.
Moderating the Huntress is straightforward, but you must ensure her elimination ability is only used once. Some game mechanics can affect her ability. Here are some tips to help moderate the Huntress:
Make a Note:
As a moderator, it helps to take notes. Jot down when the Huntress uses her elimination ability. This will prevent you from accidentally letting her use it twice.
Consistent Nightly Wake-Ups:
Even if the Huntress has already used her ability or been eliminated, keep waking her up each night. This maintains an air of mystery, keeping players guessing about what’s happening during the night.
Verify Elimination Attempts
If the Hunteress chooses to eliminate a player, be sure to check if another role has protected them before the next day. The abilities of the Bodyguard, Priest, or Witch can prevent an elimination. If a save occurs, it still uses up the Huntress ability.
Ultimate Werewolf: Extreme
The Huntress is a fun role to include for Ultimate Werewolf game nights. Her direct elimination ability can give the Villager team a real boost and since the role is straightforward, she’s perfect for beginners. Just be mindful of game balance when using her powers – a large enough group can help balance things out.
