Welcome!

Hi there and welcome to Freebie Hunters! One of our favorite pastimes in Second Life is scouting the grid for fantastic hunts, sales, and gifts from all the wonderful creators. We thought we'd share the wealth and showcase some of our finds in this blog, with an emphasis on the goodies available in the many SL hunts occurring every month. We do our best to show ALL items from a hunt and in the manner the creator intended, but this is not always possible.

An important reminder - All deals posted are subject to the whims of the item creators, and are often offered for a limited time (from hours to months). We do not guarantee the items are still available, and the creators are under no obligation to give anything.

Thank You to all of the creators!


** We reserve the right to blog what we want (same as other blogs). This blog is NOT affiliated with any others. **

Dark Future Hunt

Dark Future Hunt
May is winding down, but the hunts are still going strong! The Dark Future Hunt will take you on an adventure through some of SL's dark corners and inspired shops. This post-apocalyptic themed hunt contains some truly outstanding gifts and is an excellent change to get to do a little exploring of places you might not otherwise find on your own. The vendors have outdone themselves, and the hunt path runs extremely smoothly thanks to the hard work of the coordinators. It was a pleasure to do this hunt and even SL cooperated more or less, which was a rare treat lately. I definitely recommend this one, spread out over a few days to give yourself time to explore as you go. Take a friend or two with you - that little black biohazard hunt icon is HARD to spot in some of the darker stores, so the more eyes the better. There is an official blog with a list of stores and SLurls if you need them as well. Also...no skipping on this hunt! Various stores along the way include pieces of the SLurl you will need to put together to find the final bonus location, which has extra gifts from some of the vendors for people who make it all the way to the end. =)

Cheers, and Happy Hunting!

The Macabre Hunt: Inside Pandora's Box

The Macabre Hunt: Pandora's Box
Tempting apples, grotesquely gorgeous gifts, smooth hunt path, and enticing stores to browse - what more could you ask for in a hunt? The Macabre Hunt: Inside Pandora's Box has all of that and more. The hunt was a pleasure to run through with some really interesting places, both old and new, along the way. The quality of the gifts is excellent, and was a much-appreciated dip into the darker side after the last few summer-themed hunts the blog showcased. There is an official blog with hints and SLurls as well as an in-world group, so don't be shy about joining up - half the fun is in the people you meet along the way when hunting. The hunt runs until June 4th, so you still have plenty of time to take a wander down its path and see what goodies Pandora's Box might have in store for you.

Cheers, and Happy Hunting!

Summer Nights Hunt

Summer Nights Hunt
This hunt left me with mixed feelings, not the least of which is a growing irritation with SL's constant rollouts and server issues. The hunt has been in full swing since May 2nd, so by now most of the kinks in the hunt path should have been ironed out. Unfortunately, I hit a lot of them. However, we all know how notoriously bad the grid gets on weekends and most people have been impacted one way or another by issues with the latest round of screw-with-the-servers that SL decided to do a few days ago. I have heard horror stories from all over about missing inventories, TP issues, ghosted avs - pretty much every problem out there seems to have been exacerbated with whatever has been going on since about Wednesday or so of last week. Personally, I have been getting logged out of SL roughly every 4th teleport or so because of server handoff issues (this is with an arc below 800 and less than 50 scripts on my av). So...in light of the general mayhem going on, I am attributing the majority of my issues with navigating this hunt to SL problems.

That being said - the vendors did a fantastic job with their gifts. There is a great mix of clothing, accessories, and summery furniture/builds for both men and women that is sure to evoke thoughts of warm, starfilled summer nights in anyone. It is really good to see a hunt that doesnt neglect the men, and they made it easy on the hunters to get the right prize - pink (female gift) or blue (male gift) stars and in some cases, purple (unisex gift) stars. As a bonus, when you reach the end, there is an LM to a special gift area where you can pick up some great little extras from the vendors. The gifts are lovely, the stores were a pleasure to explore, and hopefully some of the issues with navigating the hunt will be ironed out as SL settles back to normal. Or what passes for normal on the grid. =/ There is an official blog with a list of stores, a list of hints, a list of hunt path updates, but no list of SLurls so you may have to search for LMs if you get stuck anywhere. There is an in-world group as well, which can be another resource for getting through the hunt.

Grab your hunt pals, talk your significant other into tagging along, and be patient with the teleports. The goodies are definitely worth the bit of extra effort this hunt needs.

Cheers, and Happy Hunting!
