View Full Version : Why does the Lure bonus not appear sometimes?

I was in a Wanted match yesterday and a message appeared at the bottom of the screen saying that my pursuer had killed a civilian. I got not Lure bonus for it and was really annoyed because I was trying to go for AEOTM at the time.

Also, it happens in Manhunt. But, I was thinking, does it only give the bonus to whichever the pursuer has directed the compass to on your team?

Lure bonus only shows up in specific circumstances:

1. Pursuer kills NPC
2. NPC shares your appearance (or is a Disguised Decoy)
3. NPC is in full-circle radius of you on the compass

If the NPC kill doesn't fit ALL the above criteria, you don't get the Lure.

Only exception is in Escort, where the VIP-hunters all get a Lure every time ANY NPC dies.

But it this way, if they're too stupid to realise you are a Doctor and not a Barber and are also across the map, you get punished.
This is to enforce common sense and non-stupidity in the community.

I'm pretty sure you always get the lure from a decoy wherever it is on the map.

Yeah, I set off a decoy and about 5 seconds later when it was pretty far off (couldn't even see it anymore) I got a Lure. I'm guessing that using abilities, even if the pursuer isn't in your range, nets you a lure.

Laughed at that @Archosakun ''This is to enforce common sense and non-stupidity in the community''. It promotes learning too

I think you may be right, but they don't go too far anyway (usually).

And if the Decoy has worn off before they die, then unless you're still in range and they're still a lookalike for you, NO POINTS FOR YOU!
