More About "Happy Hunting":
Happy Hunting is a story of Tyler (also known as @66Shadow), an influencer who will do anything to gain followers. In his quest for fame, he now finds himself live-streaming on the nearby planet Proxima Centauri B, where researchers infected with a cosmetic abnormality are hunted for sport, to break @SgtSurge's kill record. Tyler hunts with precise skill, allowing him to track and kill three victims despite their pleas for mercy, all while hamming it up for his drone companion, who live-streams his every move. He is then attacked by a potential fourth victim, catching him off guard and disarming him. Tyler is able to kill the fourth victim as she scrambles for his weapon, but his helmet is breached and he passes out from the change in atmosphere. A few hours later, Tyler comes back to consciousness, and realizes that he has been infected with the cosmetic abnormality from his time exposed. One victim shy from breaking @SgtSurge's record, Tyler kills himself on camera in order to break the record and achieve immortal internet fame.
