Hunt Showdown 1.38 Patch Notes (1.6.2 and for PS4 and Xbox One – October 21, 2021

New Weapon

Scottfield Model 3 Revolver
New small slot, medium ammo pistol with a 6-round capacity. The Scottfield differs from other revolvers currently available in that it uses a break-open action which allows for faster reloading, this is because of its open cylinder and built-in ejector that can remove all rounds in the cylinder at once.

It uses a slightly shorter round compared to the Caldwell Pax which means its stopping power and range are slightly less in comparison. Since it is a medium bullet its damage and range will still slightly outperform compact pistols.
