Hunt Showdown update 1.7.2 new features and content detailed

Hunt Showdown update 1.7.2 is now available to download on PC. You’ll need to install this latest patch to log in, access online features, and hop into multiplayer.

The new update – which is coming to PS4 and Xbox One on February 3, 2022 – packs an arsenal of tweaks and bug fixes. Not only that, it includes features that will entice Bounty Hunters to come back day after day for some nifty rewards.


Each day, your first successful extraction will earn you an extra 15% Hunter XP and 20% Hunt Dollars with each Hunter. Do this 5 days in a row and you’ll be entitled to an even bigger reward as well 25 Blood Bonds (Hunt Showdown’s premium currency). The streak will then reset, however.

Meanwhile, there’s another new feature called Dark Tribute. Here you can trade your Bloodline (core progression) XP in exchange for rewards including Hunt Dollars, Blood Bonds, Hunter slot, Bloodline XP, Equipment, Upgrade points, Legendary item instance, Legendary item unlock, or the exclusive Dark Tribute Hunter, Bad Hand.

Developer Crytek has made a number of gameplay changes while also rolling out bug fixes. Here are a few highlights – the full patch notes can be found here.
