    Hunt Showdown 1.45 Patch Notes for PS4 and Xbox One

    Dark Tribute

    Mr. Orwell Chary is looking into ways to give the AHA advantage in the Hunt and is looking for donations from only the most experienced Hunters. Every day after finishing their missions, players will gain bloodline XP that will make them eligible to give tribute. Once certain thresholds are met, offer blood for Mr. Chary’s Dark Tribute and be reimbursed* with one of many rewards including: Hunt Dollars, Blood Bonds, Hunter slot, Bloodline XP, Equipment, Upgrade points, Legendary item instance, Legendary item unlock, or the exclusive Dark Tribute Hunter Bad Hand: Bad at faro and worse at poker, John Robertson was determined to find glory and gold at a card table. But he was fated to become the Revenant, and he lived as he died – making the best of a bad hand.

    There are 4 thresholds of XP that the player needs to reach:

    • Players can “offer the blood” after earning 2500 XP

    • Players can “offer the blood” after earning 5000 XP

    • Players can “offer the blood” after earning 7000 XP

    • Players can “offer the blood” after earning 10000 XP or by paying 100 BBs

    Players who do not have enough experience to reach the final threshold may make a deal with Mr. Chary by paying him Blood Bonds but remember: Players can only do the final Tribute after reaching the first 3 thresholds.

    Progression resets every 24h. If the player used and unlocked all attempts, they can’t offer blood until the next day, when clock “resets”.

    (*the XP used to offer blood will still be added to your bloodline progression as normal)

    First Bounty Extraction bonus

    With this update, we are bringing a new feature called “First Bounty Extraction Bonus”. This means that players can earn bonus XP and Hunt dollars for their first successful bounty extraction with each hunter. The bonus applied is as follows:

    • +15% Hunter XP.

    • +20% Hunt Dollars.

    This bonus is a fixed percentage that will be added to the total XP and Hunt Dollars earned during the first mission where you successfully extract with the bounty.

    This reward is not limited to once per day, but once per Hunter each day. Whether it is an existing hunter or a new recruit, the first successful bounty extraction with each hunter in a given day will grant this bonus.

    Successfully extracting from a mission with the Bounty at least once per day for 5 days will grant additional rewards. Players will earn 25BB from this 5-day streak. Once completed, the progress will reset, and you can begin your streak again. However, if you miss a day, the progress will reset.

    New Weapon Variants

    Berthier Mle 92 Deadeye

    Like other deadeye variants this weapon has been modified with a side mounted Deadeye scope making it easier to hit those longer-range shots. This new variant can also be paired with the Deadeye Scopesmith trait.

    Scottfield Model 3 Spitfire

    This innovative design includes an addition to the trigger guard in the form of an extra finger hold. This grip provides an extra point of leverage, making it much easier to cock the hammer of the weapon. The barrel has also been shortened to reduce weight which allows for even better ergonomics while the shooter is charging the weapon.

    This means the Rate of Fire is significantly higher than the Base Scottfield Model 3, however the shortened barrel reduces the weight at the front of the weapon which results in higher recoil and a decrease in hip fire accuracy. Since the left hand is used to fan the weapon, the extra finger handle does not affect the rate of fire when fanning this weapon.

    Scottfield Model 3 Precision

    This version of the Scottfield adds a stock to the pistol grip, making a much more stable platform for shooting. This drastically reduces the recoil and increases the overall accuracy of the weapon. This addition also provides a more comfortable holding position, making it slight easier to prepare, resulting in a decrease in time between shots.

    Scottfield Model 3 Swift

    The top break action of the Scottfield already provides an increase to reload speeds in comparison to other revolvers in the arsenal. The addition of a speed loader mechanism means that the reload is even faster with the Model 3 Swift. These simple devised allow for all 6 rounds to be pre-loaded into them which are then ready to insert into the chamber and reload all rounds simultaneously.

    However, this addition means that you can no longer top off this weapon one bullet at a time as all spare rounds must be kept in the speed loader for the next quick reload. This means any rounds left in the weapon while reloading will be ejected and lost to make room for the next load.

    Bug Fixes

    • Implemented several dedicated server performance improvements tied to the AI cast.
    • Crouch-walking over broken glass/cans is now slightly louder than crouch-walking on other surfaces. This sound is audible at roughly 25m.
    Friendly Fire
    • The damage reduction from explosives to yourself and teammates has been removed.
    • This means damage from the following is applied to you and your teammates as normal:
      • Dynamite (sticks and bundles)
      • Explosive ammo (including Explosive crossbow bolts)
      • Red Barrels
      • Bomb lance splash Damage
    Bounty Revive
    • Increased the damage dealt when reviving a red-skulled teammate with the bounty from 25 to 50 HP.
      • Players performing this revive will not be able to kill themselves accidentally. If you have 50HP or less while performing this revive, it will stop at 1HP but will still finish the revive process.
    Hunting Bow
    • Increased the damage dealt when the bow is at minimum draw.
      • This means that performing a quick shot by tapping the fire button with inflict more damage to enemies.
    • Increased the damage multiplier of the Basic Arrow against Grunts and Hellhounds.
      • This will increase the chances of performing a OHK on these enemies.
      • Hitting these enemies at center mass from 15m will have a much higher chance of performing a OHK (one hit kill).
    Dragon Breath Custom Ammo Type
    • Increased the damage across all barrel lengths to improve the chance of landing a one hit kill (OHK). The OHK ranges for Dragonbreath are as follows:
      • Long and medium Barrel: 5-6m
      • Short Barrel: 3-4m
    Developer note:

    It’s important to note that a OHK at these ranges is still not a guarantee. A solid hit with the majority of pellets from this shell will still be required to ensure the OHK.

    Winfield 1873 Full Metal Jacket ammo
    • New Custom ammo type available for the Winfield 1873 and Winfield 1873c:
      • Similar in function to other FMJ ammo types, this increases wall penetration and the effective range.
      • Price – $35
    Higher Rate of Fire weapon changes (Dual Wield, Levering and Fanning)
    • Significantly increased the recoil for all pairs of Dual wield pistols making it harder to reacquire your target for a follow-up shot.
    • Dual wielding, fanning, and levering no longer benefit from an accuracy bonus while crouching.
    Explosive Crossbow adjustments
    • Significantly reduced the aim-punch that occurs when hit by the blast of an Explosive bolt. This means you will encounter much less screen movement when caught in the area of effect.
    • Reduced the spare ammo for Explosive bolts to ¼ (previously 1/6).
    • Slightly increased the hip fire spread for Explosives bolts.
    Trip Mines
    • Poison Trip mines now produce a poison cloud that persists for 30 seconds.
      • When triggered, a more intense level of poison will be applied to the player that set it off.
    • Alert Trip mines will now deal a small amount of burning damage to players (slight charcoal of your health bar).
    • Alert Trip mines can no longer be triggered when placed in water.

    Happy trapping and stay vigilant!

    • Decoys will now produce a “footstep” sound. This sound will vary depending on the surface they hit to keep them in line with the standard footstep audio.
    • The sound generated will behave exactly like a footstep of an enemy Hunter.
    • Equipping, unequipping and throwing decoys is now less audible to other Hunters
    Regional prices for Blood bonds packs on Steam
    • Applied local prices for Blood Bond packs on Steam for all currently supported regions
    Animal Sound Traps
    • Horses are now audible at further ranges bringing them in line with other animal sound traps.
      • Due to a bug, the Horse audio was only audible at up to 80m which has now been rectified.
      • Horses will take a longer time to de-escalate from their “aggro” state after they have been alerted.
    • Horses will now always be one shot to throwing axes regardless of where you hit the horse, bringing the damage to horses more in line with other powerful “one shot” attacks.
    Doors and Windows Rendering Exploit
    • Fixed an exploit tied to the rendering of windows and doors. It is no longer possible to tell if others have visited a compound based on whether the doors and windows have rendered or not.
      • Doors and windows will now only be determined by how close you are to the compound and is no longer impacted by other players visiting a compound first.

    • Slightly reduced the modifier given when selling equipment.
      • From 80% to 50%.
    New Legendary Weapons
    Winfield M1873 Musket Bayonet “Patre” for 800 BB.
    • “In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Unholy spirit, Hunters christen and cleanse the Bayou with the shot of this Winfield M1873 Bayonet. “

    The following changes were added previously.

    Rearranging Inventory Items

    With Update 1.7.1 we’re introducing the ability to rearrange Weapons and Items on your Hunter while still within a mission. Rearranging your items only takes a moment, and we know it will become second nature to Hunters of the Bayou in no time:

    To move or swap items:

    • Hold the item you wish to be moved in your Hunter’s hands
    • Press and hold the button assigned to the inventory slot where you’d like the item to go
    • After a short delay the item will be placed in the target inventory slot
      • If this inventory slot already contains an item, the two will swap positions

    Moving and swapping items is limited to their slot categories. Weapons can only move to other weapon slots, same with Tools and Consumables.

    Example: Swapping an Ammo Box in your first consumable slot, with a looted Flash Bomb in your last consumable slot.

    Start by pressing ‘7’ to hold the Ammo box in your hand. Next press and hold ‘0’ to indicate you would like to switch its position with the Flash Bomb. After a short delay, the two items will be swapped.

    • The rearranging inventory feature will be limited to PC Players. Console Players still can use the two ‘favorite slot’ button mappings with -Left and -Right buttons on their Dpad to quickly access their two most important tools or consumables.
      • In order to remap your favorite slots select the target slot with the right stick and press and hold either -Left or -Right on the Dpad.

    General Update


    • Improved sound design for silenced weapons

    Developers Note:

    Since the introduction of the Vetterli 71 Karabiner Silencer, we noticed that the previously released silenced weapons (Sparks LRR Silencer, Winfield M1873C Silencer, and the Nagant M1895 Silencer) would need a slight rework of their design to be more in line with the original “base” weapons. This change is purely aesthetic and should not impact gameplay (e.g., The audible distance of the Silenced Shot)

    • Added a sound effect for Miner grunt’s headlamp being destroyed without the fireball.


    Lawson Delta

    Added more sandbags to the roof of the Waiting Hall in Lawson Station. This should help offer more cover from all directions while upon the roof. (Community Request)
