Answer: LOWANZ

COCs and hunters, please comment here. Hunters, if possible, please comment what happen in the car when attempting this.

Maybe, bloggers can quote similar hunt questions from their hunt experience as an example to have another view of this question.

Many thanks.



  1. This is a surprising Q. In my opinion, this is one of the easier Qs by the CoCs. But unfortunately, by this time, there was that nagging concern about precious time that was quickly slipping away. I’m sure that if more time was available, some of us might have achieved it.

    What happened in the car? Well, not much:

    Look for copper, gold, zinc….. oh how about aluminium?

    But what about that ‘gone missing’?… maybe that is a deletion indicator somehow?… nah… can’t be…

    Hey!… why not try that ATLANTIS?…


    Well, because that word ‘anti’ is in it… and then the word ‘salt’ which is corrosive, isn’t it?…

    uhuh… but what about the lookback indicator?… surely the CoCs didn’t just add that in for nothing?…

    yeah… you got a point there….

    Yes, I remember overhearing during one of car-hops.
    “Look for a metal that is no longer a metal here”
    – that’s like answering a question with a question!

  3. In my opinion, this is one of the very few straightforward Qs by these CoCs. And then the signage was also highly visible.

    The reversal indicator is very clear in ‘look right to left’.

    ‘anti corrosion metal’ also agrees with the ‘zn’ (zinc).

    ‘has gone missing’ also agrees with AWOL (absense without leave).

    Therefore lookback becomes: LOWA + NZ.

    The only explanation I can offer is the time pressure. And I am not even supposed to give that excuse! Isn’t it surprising that not a single team got the answer?
