III. Useful Tips & Event Rewards

When you have to take a snapshot of an animal on the ground, use Yaoyao, Aloy, or a character with passive talents for hunting. These characters can approach animals without startling them.

In addition, you should use the Fontaine character Freminet when you have to complete snapshot missions underwater. He has a special passive talent for diving. In specific, he consumes less Stamina when diving and moving underwater.
