Hunt Showdown Update 1.45 Patch Notes (1.7.2) – February 8, 2022

A new Hunt Showdown update 1.45 (1.7.2) released on PS4 and Xbox One. According to the official Hunt Showdown 1.45 patch notes, the latest update added quality of life changes and gameplay improvements. Apart from this, today’s Hunt Showdown console patch 1.45 also includes stability fixes.

Previously, a major update added refactor to the weapon handling system in Hunt. Recently, a hotfix was also released with new accessibility options, hunter control changes, and more.

Unfortunately, players are still experiencing several issues since the release.

What is new and fixed in Hunt Showdown 1.45 Patch Notes for PS4 and Xbox One?

  • 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.
