Ambush Site

What makes this a good spot for an ambush?

Learning this place’s name unlocks:

A Dangerous Place

Take a risk to gather awareness.


Ambush predators and hostile human beings largely look for the same things in an ambush site: namely, the ability to lie in wait unseen, and the opportunity to attack a victim unawares. Even though most predators do not prey on humans most of the time and humans kill each other just as rarely, these places still inspire suspicion and uneasiness.
