The game’s spooky bayou setting and retro weapons give combat a slower, more intense feel.

That sets it apart from something like Fortnite, which is all about fast-paced action.

The latest update improves the gaming experience enormously thanks to new features, balancing and important mechanical optimizations.

We’ll update you on the biggest changes so you can be prepared.

Added Black Market – Hunt: Showdown

If your wallet is stuffed with Hunt Dollars and Blood Bonds that you don’t know how to spend, the new black market will lighten your load.

This marketplace will be filled with unique vendors, each selling a variety of legendary content at great prices.

Stock is limited, so once you’ve bought everything a vendor has to offer, they won’t have anything new.

The developers have promised that more content will be added to these stands with future updates.

Weapon Balance – Hunt: Showdown

There are many weapons in the game, and they all need to work in harmony with each other, especially with the high-precision gunplay that comes with the best PC games.

The Winfield 1876 Centennial has a 20% higher rate of fire.

The Winfield 1887 Terminus now has a faster reload speed and a 5% increased rate of fire.

In addition, minor damage, attack speed, and stamina changes have been made to several melee weapons.

Player Spawn Improvements – Hunt: Showdown

With limited spawn points on each map, some players spawned into unfair situations where they were immediately at a disadvantage.

To fix this, the minimum distance between spawning players was increased to 110m on the Desalle map, which was experiencing the most issues.

Reduced bounty hunt time – Hunt: Showdown

In order to keep gameplay as smooth as possible, the Bounty Hunt game time limit has been reduced from 60 minutes to 45 minutes.

The developers found that only 1% of games lasted longer than 45 minutes, so having a longer timer was pointless.

This change should improve server load and matchmaking speed across the board.

Better team details

Keeping track of your teammates in Hunt: Showdown wasn’t always the easiest task, but things are getting better thanks to these tweaks.

Actions taken by and against your teammates now appear on the team details screen so you can easily track their actions.

In addition, the color coding and icons of various actions have been improved, so you can see what state your team is in at a glance.

Finally, these actions are now time-stamped, letting you know when events occurred during a game.

There are many other additions and changes in this massive update. You can read the full Hunt: Showdown patch notes at the game’s official Steam forum page.
