  • Investigate Event clues/rifts – 16 EP
  • Destroying Solstice Tributes dropped by bosses – 18 EP (6 points per Tribute)
  • Looting Hunter corpse – 20 EP

In addition to earning these event points the Hunt Showdown Winter Solstice there is the introduction of Mr Orwell Chary and the Chary Contracts. These contracts are split into four different ones with each offering 50% boosts for the number of event points earned over different time lengths.

This year’s Hunt Showdown Winter Solstice gear items include the Calling Bird throwing axe, the Evergreen Quad Derringer, the Spirit of Yule Fire bottle, The Mountain King Winfield 1873 Swift, the Corvus Cavalry Sabre, and the Legendary Hunter Devil’s Advocate. Items from last year’s event are available in the game store including Cold Snap, Winter Rose, Nutcracker, Hailstorm, and Skinflint. These are purchasable individually or in a bundle.

In our review for Hunt: Showdown, Jim wrote: “I’ll admit I wasn’t keen on Hunt: Showdown to start with, but after the first few matches I realised there’s something special here. This is an unusual entry in a genre ruled by far snappier shooters, and it takes time to get your head around Crytek’s clever twist on the formula. Stick with it and you’ll be rewarded with a uniquely engrossing multiplayer experience.”
