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)
