Carnivores 2 (Хищники 2 in Russian, also called Carnivores II, and frequently shortened to Carn2 or C2) is the sequel to Carnivores, and the second game in the Carnivores series. Its storyline is almost identical to Carnivores', and the game gives the impression that DinoHunt Corp. has found new areas and dinosaurs and built new technology. Released on October 31, 1999.
Gameplay in Carnivores 2 is very similar to that of Carnivores, except that Carnivores' ranking system has been replaced by a point system in Carnivores 2 (the point system isn't new to Carnivores 2, it was just hidden behind Carnivores' ranking system such that when a player accrued a certain number of points, they gained a rank). The player starts with 100 points which are depleted as the player selects an area and one or more dinosaurs and weapons. In addition, the player may choose what time of day to hunt, from dawn, day, or night. The only difference between each time of day is the atmosphere; carnivores, for instance, are just as active during the day as at any other time.
The smallest island on the tour. The rolling hills surround an enormous bay. Impassible mountains make deadly traps for the unwary. In the center of the island is a large chasm of unknown origin, and the deserted remains of an archaeology outpost. Mild difficulty.
A good sized area consisting of dense pine forests encircling a murky swamp. In the southwest corner lies an abandoned settlement guarded by a towering "Dinosaur Wall", that now lies in ruins from the fury of a T-Rex. Mild difficulty.
Lush pockets of vegetation, and thousands of inlets cover this area. This beautiful but treacherous piece of land includes an ancient volcano. Be careful when wandering the virtual maze of water and mountains created by glaciers millions of years ago. Intermediate difficulty.
Ringed with snow-capped mountains, this hunting area is rumored to be a nesting ground for some of the larger dinosaurs. Muddy marshes to the southwest, and a long abandoned "Dinosaur Wall" make this one of the most mysterious areas on the tour. Intermediate difficulty.
This island, broken by waterways and mountains is the most difficult by far. The frozen peaks of Mt. Ravan overlook a thick tropical forest that may quickly become a deadly maze where hidden danger abounds. Be careful of the active lavaflow to the south as well. Advanced difficulty.
This weapon has fast shooting rate, but its accuracy declines depending on the range of shot. It is very good for close combat, but its lame for shooting a distant targets. The pistol will scare plant eaters, but the noise will alert dangerous carnivores.
This is a very powerful weapon that uses buck-shot bullets as an ammunition. The grouping of shots decreases on farther distances. Shooting from this weapon requires less precise aiming due to its grouping of shots.
This weapon has two target areas, called aiming pins. The top pin is sighted in for 40 meters, and the bottom pin is sighted for 80 meters. It is relatively silent, and can be shot several times without alerting dinosaurs.
The target area for this weapon is the center of the sighting circle. Although powerful, aim your shot well. The shotgun will scare plant eaters, causing them to scatter, but the noise will alert dangerous carnivores.
This weapon is very accurate, and will shoot exactly where the crosshairs are placed. Its range goes as far as the binoculars, but is narrow. This is not a weapon for a charging meat eater, but fantastic for distance shots.
Tranquilizing a dinosaur is an alternative to killing it. This will drop the dinosaur where it stands with a quick-acting drug. Use of the Tranquilizer adds 25% to your total points acquired during that hunt.
This allows you to view the dinosaur locations on the map during your hunt. A dinosaur is depicted on the map as a green dot. Your location is shown as the red dot with the circle surrounding it. Please note that the map shows only the dinosaurs you are hunting. All other dinosaurs are masked. Use of the map deducts 30% from your total points acquired during that hunt.
Also called Debug Mode, debugup is the "master cheat" for Carnivores 2 and equivalent to debugon in Carnivores. When entered, it causes all dinosaurs to ignore the player (to a certain extent), as well as granting the player infinite ammo and invincibility to drowning or burning (note that the player can still be killed by dinosaurs). Like all cheats, it can be deactivated simply by re-entering it.
This cheat is listed on many cheat sites, but does not work. It likely originated from someone using debug mode and accidentally hitting the "I" key, causing some debug text to appear in the corner where cheat text normally appears.
Causes the player to run at superhuman speeds. When combined with the Jump button (default [Space Bar]), it allows the player to jump very high and far.
Carnivores 2 was ported to the iPhone under the title Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter. The game features all of the same aspects of Carnivores 2 except for a necessary change in controls and a HUD change. It also features a new mode known as Survival Mode. In this mode you are required to shoot waves of dinosaurs that charge at you.
