Hunt: Showdown Update 1.5.1: Skill-based Matchmaking, Bug Fixes, and More

Hunt: Showdown Update 1.5.1 Steam/Crytek

Hunt: Showdown developer, Crytek, recently released a new update that improved matchmaking and fixed tons of bugs.

Online multiplayer games are usually competitive, so players normally want to challenge opponents with similar skill levels. To balance this situation, the developers have added skill-based matchmaking. Selecting the skill-based option in the lobby will ensure that players queue with opponents with similar ranks. However, if you keep it disabled, the system will first queue you against opponents with the same skill bracket. If none is found, the system will attempt to get as many players as possible who also disabled the said option.
