Hunt: Showdown Update 1.5.1
Hunt: Showdown Update 1.5.1 Steam/Crytek

Hunt Showdown’s latest patch might not be heavy on content but it is still important, especially if you like to complete challenges. Update brings two minor tweaks and a little less than a dozen bug fixes.

From now on, completing challenges will grant players random rewards instead of Event Points. Regular progression and the Book of Weapons received several new weapons and variants. Players won’t be able to equip items when they are in matchmaking anymore. Minor localization issues in the German language have been addressed as well.

The complete changelog is mentioned below.
