Way Of The Hunter Vehicles: All To Know

Vehicles in Way of the Hunter come in quite handy when you're hunting game.

Way of The Hunter is a game developed by the Nine Rocks Games. The game puts you in the shoes of a hunter that hunts in a vast area. To cover this area and explore it, the hunter uses his Vehicle to travel from one spot to another. So, we’ll discuss everything there is to the Vehicles in the Way of The Hunter.

Key Takeaways
  • Players use vehicles, specifically cars, to travel and explore the map
  • Cars can also be used for storage and accessing weapons and gear
  • There are three different color options for the vehicles: Mile (green), Thunder (blue), and Clockwork (yellow)
  • Animals in the game behave realistically and will run away from vehicles
  • Killing an animal with a vehicle results in a wasted hunt and trophy rating, and does not allow for taxidermy or bullet camera.

Vehicles In the Way Of The Hunter 

The Way of The Hunter game lets you explore the world using a Car. It comes in handy quite often as the map of Way of the Hunter is really big. And you can’t expect yourself to cover the map on foot, so the car becomes extremely useful to get from one place to another.

But, you can’t bring the car with you when you’re on to hunting to help you with the hunt for animals as it will scare them away. But it is nice to have the car as we’ve told you above how it’ll help you move from one place to another.

You can use the vehicles as storage units too. That’s why taking the vehicle will you is a good thing. It will come in handy when you find some game that requires a special rifle. At that moment, you’ll have your armory in front of you in the car, and you can choose whatever suitable rifle you want.

Vehicle Storage
You can use vehicles to access your weapons and gear.

Once you get familiar with the map and explore different outposts and campsites, your dependency on the car will reduce. That is what the developers claim to have in plan for the game. The car is only to help you get familiar with the map.

The vehicles in the Way of the Hunter have a really good grip. The driving experience is smooth. The car can drive over water and small rocks easily. You won’t find yourself slipping or sliding all over the place when you’re driving.


Anyways, you get a total of 3 paint jobs for the Vehicles. They are named Mile, Thunder, and Clockwork. The ‘Miles’ car has green color, ‘Thunder’ is of blue color, and the ‘Clockwork’ car is of yellow color. All of these are similar, and they have no difference except for the color. So whichever color suits you, take it and get hunting.

Animals’ Behavior to the Vehicle

One thing that amazed us while testing out the vehicles in the game is that animals behave exactly as an animal would. While we were on our adventure to explore the world of Way of the Hunter in our car, we came across herds of deers.

The herds of deer and other animals ran away at the sight of the car. If any deer came right in front of the jeep, they kept looking at it. And as in real life, they didn’t even try to run away. And while you’re on dirt or grasslands, your brakes won’t work like they usually would. We regretfully inform you that we might have hit a few animals.

As this is a hunting game, if you kill an animal with a vehicle, then it’ll be wasted. The Hunt Rating and Trophy Rating both will be considered ‘Wasted’ with a bottom tag of ‘Raod Kill’. Moreover, you can’t perform Taxidermy, nor can you check the Bullet Camera, as there was no bullet.

Killing an animal with a vehicle will block the Hunt tab and the Trophy Tab. This will be a big failure if you’re trying to get an animal with maximum gene potential or maximum fitness. Killing that animal will waste the trophy and everything. So, if you want to get better at the game, then we suggest that you leave your vehicle behind and get on foot to hunt the animals.

Vehicle Controls

To control the Cars in the Way of the Hunter, the controls are the same as in any game. To move the vehicle, you have the W, A, S, and D buttons. Then, to brake or to apply the handbrake, you have the Space button.

Apart from these buttons, the following buttons have their own purpose in Way of the Hunter. After that, if you want to use the Horn of the vehicle, then you’ll have to press the R button. To change the vehicle camera, you can press the C button.

As for the lights, you have the F button. You will note that the button for the Headlamp is H. We are curious why the developers thought it was okay to have different buttons on the lights when on foot or in the vehicle.

How To Respawn Vehicle

While driving the car, you need to keep one thing in mind. And that is that it’s better if you don’t go near deep water bodies. That is because while we were testing the vehicle in the Way of The Hunter and miscalculated how deep the river is. This resulted in the car getting stuck in it. When the car gets stuck, you can’t even get out of it.

If that happens, whatever the situation is, all you have to do is exit to the main menu and then enter the game again. Then, when you respawn, you’ll respawn outside of the car. When you come back, you’ll find that your vehicle is still stuck in the water. To get it out, you’ll have to respawn the vehicle.

You won’t have your car stuck in the water. We’re just informing you of one instance. There were times when our vehicle was stuck at different places on the map of the Way of The Hunter.

That happened when we were driving in the wild or were reversing in tight spaces. Anyways, if you have lost your car, or it got destroyed, or you are far away from your vehicle, whatever the case is. You’ll need to respawn it to you.

If your vehicle is in workable condition, and you want to travel towards it to continue your journey, you can’t do that. Because the game doesn’t let you fast travel to your vehicle.

But you can spawn it to yourself. The game Way of the Hunter lets you respawn the vehicle by using two different methods. The first method is to travel to the Lodge and use the computer there. Whereas for the second method, you’ll have to interact with the parking signs around the map.

Using Computer

For the first method, you’ll have to go to a Computer. You can access a computer at the Lodge. Get there by traveling on foot. You can also use the Fast Travel method to travel to the lodge too. Anyways, when you get to the lodge, using any of these methods, go upstairs to the computer. Press E to interact with the computer.

Once you get inside, you’ll find that it has several tabs. You need to find the Cars tab. Navigate to the car tab. There, select one of the three car options available. This will make the car respawn outside of the lodge at the parking spot.

Using Parking Signs

The second method is using the Parking Signs spread across the map. You’ll find these signs on the roads. So if you don’t want to fast travel back to the lodge, you can use this method to spawn the vehicle in Way of The Hunter.

When you approach the Parking sign, a prompt will come up that says Interact. When you interact with it, you’ll have a list of the cars in front of you. Select one of these, and it will appear to be close to the sign.

Parking Spots in the game.
Parking Signs are another spot to access the vehicles.

You won’t find a lot of the Parking Signs in the game. You’ll usually come across them near the cabins. So, you need to open your map and travel to the nearest cabin, and it will have a Parking sign near it.


The Vehicle in Way of The Hunter gives you the best feeling when you’re driving around the map. The control and the smooth ride, everything in it makes you want to drive it more. We had a great experience just driving around on the map of Way of The Hunter.

The vehicles act as storage units out in the wild. You can use them to change your equipment. Not only that, vehicles come in handy when you have to travel great distances.
