Hunt Showdown Update 1.5 is Live! Custom Ammo, New Weapons & More

Deutsch English

Hunt Showdown gets the update 1.5 today, which brings the custom ammo and is supposed to change the game from the ground up. But that’s not all.

Update 1.5 Overview: A few minutes ago the Hunt Showdown Update 1.5 was installed on the live servers. Fans are eagerly waiting for the accompanying innovation of the Custom Ammo!

Custom Ammo in Hunt Update 1.5

That changes: We have discussed in this article what exactly Custom Ammo is. Here’s the short version: Custom Ammo in Hunt Showdown includes various types of ammunition that you can carry with you. There is everything from incendiary ammunition to poison and high-speed ammunition.

Bullet Shell Bolt
DumDum Flechette Poison
Full Metal Jacket Penny-Shot Explosive
High Velocity Slug Chaos
Poison Starshell Choke
Incendiary Dragonbreath Shotbolt
Spitzer
Explosive

This change means that some weapons are completely eliminated from the game. From now on three different crossbows are no longer needed to fire explosive or shotbolt bolts. You just buy the ammunition for one crossbow now.

Incidentally, the new ammunition is considered special ammunition. This means that you cannot fill them up with simple ammunition boxes. The little purple parcels have also been removed. So the only ways to refill your weapon are the new large special boxes and an ammo box that you brought with you.

The former with the label “aha” or “UwU” can be found at every supply point on the map, but only once per point. Sounds like a lot, but it quickly turns out to be a deception. Because the more players with Custom Ammo enter the game, the more players need these boxes. Supply cars could thus represent a new hotspot.

Legendary Skins: Two new legendary skins have been added to the update. Both are for the respective new Winfield weapons, apart from the Handcannon variant:

“Calamity Jane” Winfield Centennial Legendary

Gun Lore: The very Winfield M1876 Centennial that entertained crowds of hundreds the country over in the hands of the infamous Calamity Jane ended up in the Bayou after a series of tragedies put the show out of business. In the hands of the Hunter who bought it, it still wrought both the tragedy – and trickery – with which it had been christened.

  • Price: 400 Blood Bonds

“Last Estate” Winfield 1887 Terminus Legendary

Gun Lore: Hunters pass on heirlooms old and new on deathbeds of mud, the receivers’ grateful strangers, trampling mantles in haste and greed. Last Estate is named for inherited land sold to pay for the engravings on this Winfield 1887 Terminus. Fittingly, it was passed on without ceremony, the names forgotten but the pattern repeated.

  • Price: 300 Blood Bonds
