This follows the recent 1.55 update which introduced new content and features to the battle royale shooter. As you roam The Bayout in search of bounties, you’ll now run into Pistol Grunts who will try and clobber hunters with their broken sidearm, letting off a loud gunshot upon impact. Then there’s the Lantern Grunt who carries… a lantern. Depending on whether it’s lit or unlit, a successful attack will set hunters ablaze or create an oil puddle. Summons have also been added as a replacement to the existing quest system in-game.

Having recently celebrated its fourth birthday, Hunt Showdown is being adapted into a live action series exclusively for free streaming platform, Binge, later this year. That’s not all Crytek has planned for its popular shooter, teasing some pretty big changes and updates coming soon. Hopefully, this includes a beefed up version of the game on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.
