Hunt: Showdown Update 1.8 - Hotfix 2 Resolves Ladder Animation Bug and More

Update 1.8 - Hotfix 2 Steam

Developer Crytek Studio has deployed a new patch for Hunt: Showdown. Update 1.8 - Hotfix 2 resolves the ladder animation bug where you can use equipment while climbing up the ladder. It also fixes some issues concerning the Concertina Armored.

The Concertina Armored is a variant of the Armored enemies typically found walking in swamp areas. This particular variant is fully entangled in concertina wire and deals bleeding damage if you’re in melee range.

Anyway, the game’s latest update fixes the issue where the Concertina Armored can damage you when you hit them with non-melee attacks. So for instance, firing crossbow bolts at them will no longer damage you.

Another major bug concerning the Concertina Armored where it could deal a huge amount of damage to nearby players if it was set on fire is now resolved.
