Here is a simple guide on how to get more event points in Hunt Showdown.
How to Earn Event Points
– Destroying/interacting with event objects. *note* you don’t have to melee the pyre, walking into it will destroy it to save stamina
– Killing a hive with a hunting bow grants 2 event points.
– Killing an armoured with a throwing axe grants 2 event points.
– Killing a boss grants 4 event points.
– Looting a dead hunter grants 5 event points.
*note* Multiple of these can be stacked with teammates for a combined boost towards event points and Dark Sight range.
