The Hunt: Showdown Shooting Range Now Available in Recent Update

Update 1.13 Crytek Studios

Hunt: Showdown received a pretty massive patch just recently. Update 1.13 has finally introduced the Shooting Range.

Welcome to the Shooting Range

The Shooting Range provides a safe space for Hunt: Showdown players to test their loadouts. This is also a perfect place for them to get accustomed to the game's unique gunplay before getting into an actual battle.

Here, they will find target dummies that represent actual hunters, meaning they have the same hit points and can suffer from status effects as well.

However, unlike real battles, there are things exclusive to the Shooting Range. For one, players will know how much damage they've dealt thanks to the floating damage indicator. Each time they shoot the target dummy, floating numbers spawn at the point of impact. Additionally, these indicators have different colors to make standard damage and damage dealt by status effects easily distinguishable.

Aside from that, players can utilize the ping function to gauge their distance from the target. This feature displays a range indicator from the player's current location to the ping marker's position. With this feature, they will know where they should position themselves for maximum damage.
