Overview[edit | edit source]
When playing him, players can use the football to dash forward and knock the hunter off balance. The Forward will be stunned when exhausted.
If he pushes the hunter into an object, the hunter will be stunned for longer.
His decoding speed is slower than most survivors. His main job is to rescue survivors that are being carried by the hunter. Stunning the hunter into an object while the hunter carries a survivor will release the carried survivor.
He also has 10% increase in struggling speed if captured by the hunter, allowing him to free himself if carried by balloons.

Tips[edit | edit source]
Playing as:[edit | edit source]
- Use the ball when the Hunter is picking up a survivor (because during that animation the Hunter can't move to avoid the stun).
- Use the ball to reach a pallet only if the Hunter is chasing you and there aren't any other options.
- The Forward is a rescuer, so it's advisable to use Tide Turner.
Counter:[edit | edit source]
- When the Forward is approaching, immediately change directions to land a hit on him.
- The ball lost durability really fast, so if you aren't kiting, rescuing, balloon rescuing, just decode.

- An Invitation for William Ellis
Dear Mr. William Ellis,
People often discuss how you have an "unfair advantage" in Rugby. Contrary to what they've blabbered about, I see your "advantage" as an "extraordinary reform" to the sport. You've embedded sophistication under that muscular body of yours and successfully fooled everyone that you're merely a brute charging headlessly with a rugby ball.
Your talent in exploiting the loophole within the rules has revolutionized the sport. For this, we welcome you to participate in this new game we have created. Your role in this operation is to polish the game rules, for the game requires a person with your physique and mind. Your participation in this treasure hunting game of ours at the Oletus Manor is crucial.
Well, of course, as a token of our appreciation, we will fully support you, with no strings attached, in your future reform at the Rugby club.
We look forward to your presence,
- An Invitation for William Ellis
