The risk was calculated... but I'm bad at math.
This section outlines a strategy. Feel free to add tips, tricks and general advice about the topic.


  • The Night Hawk is useful for longer ranges or in the storm, as its thermal view allows players to see through areas with thick fog.
  • Due to its thermal scope, the weapon is useful against invisible enemies, such as Predator, or those using his cloaking device.

Trivia

  • The Night Hawk is visually very similar to the standard Scoped Revolver, but it has a black matte finish, as opposed to a silver finish like the original one.
  • The Night Hawk uses the same Thermal effect as the Thermal Fish, unlike the Thermal Scoped Assault Rifle which uses a Blue and Orange filter.
  • Upon release, if you knocked or eliminated another player with The Night Hawk, it would display a string of seemingly random characters across the elimination feed. This also occurred with the Shadow Tracker, but both issues were patched.
