While PC players have already dipped their toes into Hunt Showdown’s latest title update (1.5), console gamers just got the Hunt Showdown update 1.19 March 18 patch, and yes, this is for the big 1.5 title update! This brings custom ammo, new weapons and more into the game! Head on below for the full patch notes.
Hunt Showdown Update 1.19 March 18 Patch Notes:
New Feature: Custom Ammo
With this update, we are introducing several new ammunition types that are available for nearly all the weapons in Hunt. These Custom ammo types are designed as a side-grade rather than an upgrade, offering a lot more variety as well as allowing players to tailor their loadouts even more to their playstyle.
No custom ammo type is meant to replace the default ammunition. While some may appear to have advantages, there are also downsides that must be considered.
For example, some ammo will have higher penetration values, but these come at the cost of reduced muzzle velocity and damage. Others will deal fire damage as well as instantly blow-up explosive barrels but will have a visible tracer and no wall penetration.
- Some ammo types will be more suited to PvP while others are more aimed at PvE combat.
- Not all weapons can use every type of custom ammo.
- Custom Ammo is unlocked the same as any other weapon variant through the Book of Weapons.
- When equipped, custom ammo replaces the standard ammo for the duration of the mission.
- Ammo can be changed between missions when modifying your hunter, but not in the mission itself.
- Custom Ammo is available for compact, medium and long bullets. Carrying multiple weapons with the same Custom Ammo type will share ammunition between them.
Single-Shot WeaponsAll single shot weapons (Springfield 1866, Martini Henry IC1, Sparks LRR, Romero 77, Hand Crossbow and Crossbow) have been upgraded to make them more versatile. They now can carry two types of ammunition.
This allows these weapons to split their extra ammo capacity between two different ammo types for added flexibility.
Equipped ammo types can be toggled with the “X” button (default mapping) while playing.
Custom Ammo Types
- This bullet shatters on impact, releasing a toxic agent fatal in high doses. But the cost is reduced stopping power and penetration.
- This bullet contains a small phosphorous charge that ignites when fired and sets flammable targets alight. A visible tracer can give the shooter’s position away.
- This modified bullet expands and shatters on impact, causing severe bleeding, but at the expense of penetration power and muzzle velocity. However, this additional stopping power has little effect on monsters and infected (who often suffer from gruesome wounds already and are less concerned about blood loss)
Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) Ammo
- A hardened casing increases this bullet’s penetration power, though additional weight reduces muzzle speed.
High Velocity Ammo
- A hot-loaded bullet with a strong powder charge combined with a lighter projectile tip significantly boosts the muzzle velocity but increases recoil slightly. Great for ranged combat. When used on weapons with a silencer, the gunfire will be audible at slightly longer distances.
- Spitzer rounds revolutionize rifle ballistics, improving both penetration and muzzle velocity, though adding slightly stronger recoil. They are more stable in flight and can punch clean through multiple targets, but often cause less severe wounds.
- This bullet contains a small charge that bursts on impact, scattering shrapnel over an area–the larger the bullet size, the greater the area. Reduced penetration, velocity, and damage, but a well-aimed shot can tear apart your enemies.
- This shell contains a number of smaller dart-like projectiles which fan out in a tight spread. Cannot pierce most surfaces but can saturate an area and cause bleeding damage.
- This shell creates a several-meter-long jet of flame that ignites anything in its path. Reduced range over buckshot.
- Single solid projectile that can be used in shotguns to provide an advantage in range and penetration over buckshot. Not effective at long distances.
- A shell that launches a flare that descends slowly, illuminating the area. Ignites everything it touches.
- Coins replace shot pellets in this shell for a more powerful, if erratic, barrage. Shreds skin and flesh, but cannot penetrate harder obstacles. Unreliable at a distance.
Explosive Bolt Ammo
- A highly volatile and explosive bolt.
- Modified, multi-purpose bolts tipped with shotgun shells that detonates on impact.
Poison Bolt Ammo
- This compact bolt releases a highly toxic agent upon impact. Can cause death in seconds in high doses.
Chaos Bolt Ammo
- A compact bolt that emulates the sound of a gunfight just like a Chaos Bomb, but with a shorter effect.
Choke Bolt ammo
- A Choke Bomb in the form of a compact crossbow bolt. Shorter lifespan and smaller range. Can be used offensively or defensively.
Custom Ammo can only be replenished from the new purple Special Ammo Boxes and from Ammo Box consumables the player brought into the bayou.
- The existing small purple special ammo packs have been removed.
- New Special Ammo Boxes can be found scattered throughout the world.
- Special Ammo Boxes can be found at every supply point.
- Special ammo boxes will also be quite common around the big Watchtowers (1-2 boxes)
- Other weapons such as the Nitro Express Rifle, Crossbows and the Dolch C-96 compete for these resupply options with weapons using Custom Ammo, reducing overall availability of special ammo for all players. Best to hold on to some rounds, just to be safe.
Custom Ammo on Crossbows
As you may have noticed, some of the ammo types above are named after crossbow variants. These variants have sadly left us, but their legacy will live on with their Custom ammo Variants. Similar to the Single shot weapons (explained above) you can now pair up ammo types so whether you want normal bolts and Shotbolts, or Shotbolts and Explosive bolts – we got you covered. And now, you can also use these ammo types with your favourite legendary skins.
Winfield 1876 Centennial
A large slot, medium ammo, lever-action hunting rifle. This weapon is a significant upgrade from its famous compact ammo 1873 cousin that also benefits from the Iron repeater and Levering traits. This means the 1876 is a very versatile weapon that sits comfortably in the center of the arsenal with an ability to take on most challenges that it encounters.
The rifle carries les ammo and lacks some of the punch that comes with other medium ammo rifles but what it lacks in punch, it makes up for with a very high muzzle velocity and large tube magazine.
Winfield 1887 Terminus
The Winfield 1887 Terminus is a large slot, lever-action shotgun, with an impressive capacity of seven shells with five in the magazine, one in the elevator and one loaded directly, and benefits from both Iron Repeater and Levering.
The shotgun’s lever-action allows for a comfortable cycling rate during engagements, with the exposed action providing instant feedback on the type of loaded ammunition.
The medium barrel length produces decent effects at range, but the weapon still falls slightly short compared to some of the other longer-barreled shotguns.
Winfield 1887 Terminus Handcannon
The Winfield 1887 Terminus Handcannon is a sawn-off variant of the model 1887, its buttstock having been replaced with a shorter pistol grip making it a medium slot choice.
The removed stock naturally results in much stronger recoil, while the shortened barrel causes wider shot dispersion. However, the weapon only loses one shell capacity for an impressive six shots as most of the tube-magazine is retained.
Like with its parent, the 1887 handcannon variant also benefits from the Iron Repeater and Levering traits.
New Legendary Weapons
“Calamity Jane” Winfield Centennial Legendary
- The very Winfield M1876 Centennial that entertained crowds of hundreds the country over in the hands of the infamous Calamity Jane ended up in the Bayou after a series of tragedies put the show out of business. In the hands of the Hunter who bought it, it still wrought both the tragedy – and trickery – with which it had been christened.
- Added for 400 Blood Bonds
“Last Estate” Winfield 1887 Terminus Legendary
- Hunters pass on heirlooms old and new on deathbeds of mud, the receivers’ grateful strangers, trampling mantles in haste and greed. Last Estate is named for inherited land sold to pay for the engravings on this Winfield 1887 Terminus. Fittingly, it was passed on without ceremony, the names forgotten but the pattern repeated.
- Added for 300 Blood Bonds
- Significantly reduced the impact noise tied to the Decoys (standard and blankfire) increasing their viability in close combat encounters.
- Increased the throwing distance of Decoys to improve their usefulness in providing distractions.
Developer Note:Unfortunately, decoys have not really played a significant role for quite a long time, so we wanted to make some changes to increase their versatility and viability in your loadout. Our idea is that players can use them to aggro AI and animals at a greater distance without revealing your presence. This may confuse your enemies who will generally expect the hostile target to be closer to the aggro noise, allowing for a surprise attack, or to use the distraction as a quick escape.
- Significantly reduced the audible distance for the chaos bomb fuse. This change increases the chances of confusing other players during close to medium distance encounters.
- Hand crossbow are now a small slot weapon, previously a medium slot.
Developer Note:With this change to the hand crossbow as well as the addition of the new tactical ammo types such as the choke, chaos, and poison, we want to encourage its use as a more versatile tool in the players Arsenal. Please note you cannot dual-wield the hand crossbow.
- Improvements made to the chaining of duster melee attacks to feel more responsive.
- Slightly increased Stamina cost for normal Knife attacks (normal is slash that can cut wire, heavy is stab; change is part of the Concertina balance changes further below)
- Significantly improved the hit registration of wires making it more consistent when shooting through the concertina wire mesh.
- This means it will no longer be possible to use the mesh as a reliable shield. They will still provide cover, however there is a much higher risk of getting hit.
- This also means it will no longer be possible to block choke bombs with the wire meshes ensuring that you cannot set a down Hunter on fire and then throw a concertina bomb on top to prevent them from being extinguished,
- individual wires on the concertina can now be destroyed from hits with long, FMJ and Nitro bullets
- Wires can no longer be destroyed with blunt or stab attacks (dusters, fists, Hammers, but stocks, bayonets). You now need to cut the wire.
- Slashing Attacks vary in effectiveness when it comes to cutting the concertina wire.
- Heavy Knives destroy several wires with a single attack.
- Wood Axe, Machete, Shovel (normal attacks), Talon variants and the Romero 77 Hatchet can destroy substantial amounts of wire with a single melee attack, allowing players to clear a concertina in no time.
- Slash attacks from the standard Knife as well as from Throwing Knives and the Pax Claw now need multiple attacks to break a single piece of wire.
- Concertina wire still breaks piece by piece as normal if the player becomes entangled in it.
Developer Note:It was important to us to fix several issues with the previous iteration of concertina wire, ensuring that we stopped some instances where it could be abused as well as making it more reliable to use and be countered by players.
We also felt that being able to take out your First Aid Kit and simply punch through concertina obstacles was a cheap and unrealistic tactic. The intention has always been to have players clear wires using the right gear, so now we are trying to establish some clearer rules to ensure this is the case.
While in some instances this might make it more challenging to clear wires, bringing (or looking for) the right tools can make a significant difference and overall allows for much easier obstacle clearing and yields more satisfying results when cutting through wire with heavy equipment, like Machete, Wood Axe, Shovel or Bomb Lance.
- Trait change: Lowered cost of the Ghoul trait to 4 Upgrade Points (previously 7 points).
- Upon spawning as a trio, players will be arranged in a triangle formation instead of standing side-by-side, giving all players the chance to check out their team-mates before the match starts.
