Hunt Showdown Update 1.20 March 24 Patch Notes:

Update: Crytek has released the full patch notes!

Gunplay

Full Metal Jacket:

  • FMJ rounds no longer have a base damage reduction over regular ammo. They will still have a slower muzzle velocity.
  • FMJ rounds will now retain more of its damage after the first few wall penetrations.#
  • All FMJ rounds will now penetrate through up to two layers of thin metal sheets.

Spitzer

  • Spitzer ammo will retain slightly more damage after the first few wall penetrations. It will still have less base damage than regular ammo.
  • All spitzer rounds will now penetrate through up to two layers of thin metal sheets.

Developer note:

We wanted to make sure that ammo types that have a strong focus on wall penetration to actually make a significant impact in these scenarios, but we felt that FMJ was not performing as well as expected, therefore, we have made some minor changes to the amount of damage that is lost when penetrating multiple surfaces.
