Hunt Showdown 1.26 Patch Notes (Updated)

The Hunt: Showdown winter event – Blood & Ice – starts today. That means that from now until December 30, 2020, you’ll have the chance to earn Event Points that you can use to unlock exclusive winter-themed Legendary equipment.

How to Earn Event Points

Event Points can be used to help you speed up your progression, and speeding up your progression means getting to those sweet event rewards even faster.


Earn Event Points by:

-Destroying gift boxes scattered around the world

-Destroying gift boxes beneath the Christmas trees


-Defeating a boss, then destroying the gift box the boss drops alongside the Bounty

-Investigating an event-themed Clue or Rift

-Watching Hunt: Showdown Twitch streams


That’s right – this time around, you can earn extra Event Points by watching participating Hunt: Showdown livestreams on Twitch– you’ll earn 10 points for every 30 minutes you watch.

Event Gear

If you login to Hunt at least once during the event, we have a special holiday gift for you! Everyone who logs on during Blood & Ice will receive Cold Snap, our new Legendary First Aid Kit.


Cold Snap

This First Aid Kit is designed to bind wounds in cooler climates. Clasped with a snowflake-stamped buckle, this is sure to ward off death’s icy hand – for a while.



Though rage burned hot within the Siberian sniper who first bore this elite Mosin, each shot taken was as coldly calculated as the frost that trimmed the dark line of pines from which it easily picked off grunts with precision, one by bloody one.

Winter Rose

A white rose blooming in winter was once thought to be an omen of death. In the case of this rose-engraved Vetterli, that omen rings true with every shot, though the sight of its metallic bloom would be an omen of impending death in any season.



These ornate Dusters were fashioned from what was once a fine table ornament – and now they can crack a lot more than just walnuts.

And a New Legendary Hunter!
