There was also Brontosaurs that were unable to be killed and several other dinosaurs that didn't give the shooter any points. They were the Moschops (a dog-like dinosaur), the Gallimimus (a fast, sprinting dinosaur) and Dimorphodon (a flying dinosaur) that can only be shot with a sniper rifle.

Weapons

  • Shotgun: A powerful weapon, but will scare the herbavore dinosaurs and attract the carnivorous dinosaurs. It can hold six shells and has one target area - the center of the sight circle.
  • The X-Bow: Has two aiming pins, the top is sighted for 40 meters and the bottom for 80 meters. The weapon is relatively silent but after shooting several time will eventually alert dinosaurs. Made for more advanced hunters since he aiming takes some practice, but is available at the start of the game. There are eight shots in the X-Bow.
  • Sniper Rifle: Will shoot exactly where the crosshairs are placed, its range goes as far as the binoculars, but is extremely narrow. Holding six shots, this is for advanced and expert hunters only.
