Hunt: Showdown Update 1.7.1 Patch Notes

PC only Highlights

Rearranging Inventory Items – Item Hotswap Feature (Limited to PC)
With Update 1.7.1 we’re introducing the ability to rearrange Weapons and Items on your Hunter while still within a mission. Rearranging your items only takes a moment, and we know it will become second nature to Hunters of the Bayou in no time.
To move or swap items:

  • Hold the item you wish to be moved in your Hunter’s hands
  • Press and hold the button assigned to the inventory slot where you’d like the item to go
  • After a short delay, the item will be placed in the target inventory slot
    • If this inventory slot already contains an item, the two will swap positions

Moving and swapping items is limited to their slot categories. Weapons can only move to other weapon slots, same with Tools and Consumables.

General Updates


  • Added a sound effect for Miner grunt’s headlamp being destroyed without the fireball.
  • Improved sound design for silenced weapons.

Developers Note:
Since the introduction of the Vetterli 71 Karabiner Silencer, we noticed that the previously released silenced weapons (Sparks LRR Silencer, Winfield M1873C Silencer, and the Nagant M1895 Silencer) would need a slight rework of their design to be more in line with the original “base” weapons. This change is purely aesthetic and should not impact gameplay (e.g., The audible distance of the Silenced Shot).

Lawson Delta

  • Added more sandbags to the roof of the Waiting Hall in Lawson Station. This should help offer more cover from all directions while upon the roof
  • Made the side-building roofs fully accessible in Wolfshead Arsenal.
