Hunt: Showdown October 6 Test Server Update Unlocks Deception at Rank 1

Hunt: Showdown Update
Hunt: Showdown Update Crytek

Hunt: Showdown, the PvE game by Crytek, recently received some love. Last month, Update 1.10 went live on the test server build of the game, and players have been enjoying the newly added Stalker Beetle consumable. However, everything isn’t perfect, so a small patch was released yesterday with some crucial changes.

Several progression changes are made. From now on, the Deception category will unlock at Rank 1 instead of Rank 32. The Caldwell Pax will be unlocked at Rank 30 and Sparks LRR will be unlocked at Rank 32. Throwing the Stalker Beetle when close to extraction points will not result in the blocking of the extraction timer.

General Updates
New weapon Spawns
  • Added a chance for the Caldwell Conversion Uppercut and the Sparks Pistol to the Tower and world spawns.
Progression changes
  • Caldwell Pax unlocks at Rank 30 (previously Rank 58)
  • Sparks LRR unlocks at Rank 32 (previously Rank 30)
  • Deception category unlocks at Rank 1 (previously rank 32)
  • The health regeneration cooldown will no longer be reset once the “poison” effect wears off and health regen will begin instantly.
Stalker Beetle
  • The Stalker Beetle can no longer block the extraction timer when close to extraction points.
Bug Fixes
  • Fixed an issue where swapping a consumable for the Beetle could cause inventory issues.
  • Fixed an issue that resulted in having to press the key twice to enable Darksight after leaving the beetle view (only in instances where Darksight is not bound to E).
  • Fixed a bug that caused the Berthier to not appear when using the “Bulletgruber” filter.
  • Fixed a bug that allowed barricaded doors to be destroyed instantly under certain circumstances.
  • Fixed a bug that allowed the Stalker Beetle to be hidden inside the extraction boat.
  • Fixed a bug that resulted in no damage or effects being dealt to Hunters when a Beetle was detonated on the ground.
