A hunter is a type of character in Identity V. They are responsible for eliminating survivors and sending them back to the manor.
Hunters are faster than survivors; their speed varies from hunter to hunter, giving hunters the ability to catch up to running survivors. Although they are fast, they are slower than survivors at vaulting obstacles. Hunters can deal certain amounts of damage to survivors to knock them down, allowing them to carry them to rocket chairs to elminate them. The Soul Weaver may also eliminate survivors on the spot via suffocating them in a cobweb coccoon. Different traits and abilities vary from hunters which provides them with unique gameplay.
