The hunters have the default skin of a Combine Officer (from Half Life 2). They are blinded and cannot move during the first 30 or 35 seconds of the game to allow props to hide. Each hunter has a crowbar, shotgun, SMG and 1 SMG grenade (Alt fire of the SMG). The weapons are used to kill the props, but when shooting or hitting a real object, hunters take damage (5 HP lost when shooting or hitting real props). Hunters have 100 health points at the start of the game.
The Spectator is the type of player used when waiting for next round or a prop has died. It can be selected in the team selection menu. The Spectator can fly around the map and switch to other player's view. Spectators can not communicate with living players to prevent revealing information on Props or Hunters that cannot be obtained througaying the game normally. "Ghosting" is a term that refers to revealing the location of Props or Hunters to players through a third-party platform, such as Skype or Discord. On many Prop Hunt servers, ghosting can result in a permanent ban on the perpetrator's account.
