The Hunt Showdown Update 1.6.2 is playable for everyone since today, October 12, 2021. In this article, we'll show you the latest content, go into great detail and, at the end of the day, simplify the update's patch notes for you!

The update 1.6.2 of Hunt Showdown is gigantic. It not only brings new weapons and variants, but it also massively changes the balance and even rewards you with new cool skins in the end.

Update 1.6.2 at a glance

  • New revolver
  • Two new Vetterli variants
  • A new Lebel variant
  • New stim shots (syringes)
  • Two new skins
  • Countless changes to balance and gameplay

These are the new weapons in the Hunt Showdown Update 1.6.2

What's new: A new weapon is included in the current Hunt Showdown update. There are also three other variants, two for the Vetterli and one for the Lebel 1886.

This is what the new Scotfield Model 3 revolver can do

The new addition to Hunt Showdown is a revolver that uses medium ammunition. The Scotfield Model 3 is aimed at beginners and is available from the very first rank. It also costs entry-level 77 Hunt dollars.

In addition, it reloads comparatively quickly, which serves as a balance to the low muzzle flash speed. At 280 m / s it is a little lower than that of the PAX revolver.

You can unlock incendiary projectiles and full jacketed projectiles, which you can obtain as usual by simply playing the weapon.

Scotfield Model 3 data sheet:

  • 6 + 12 rounds of medium ammunition
  • 280 m/s bullet speed
  • Available from rank 1
  • Costs 77 Hunt dollars
  • Can be equipped with full jacket and incendiary bullets
  • New versions of the Vetterli karabiner and Lebel 1886

The ever-popular Vetterli karabiner gets a little make-over. From now on you can activate a version with a Marksmen scope and a silencer for the all-rounder Vetterli in addition to a bayonet.

The Marksmen version has a small disadvantage compared to other weapons with the same scope. It wobbles more than other Marksmen weapons as you look through the visor and move around. This version of the Vetterli costs $190 in the shop.

This is compensated for by the successful silencer version of the Vetterlie karabiner. This has probably the best sight that is currently available on silencer versions in Hunt Showdown. It is easy - and now pay attention - a rear sight has been put on top of the existing one. The silencer version of the Vetterli costs $150 in the shop.

Healing Over Time: These 2 syringes keep the debate going

With the Hunt Showdown Update 1.6.2 two new syringes are introduced. Both of these heal you over time. As usual, there is a weak stim and a strong stimulus.

  • Weak Regeneration: Heals consistently over 5 minutes
  • Strong regeneration: Heals consistently over 10 minutes

So both injections will heal you continuously, even if you have just suffered damage. The only exceptions here are status effects such as poisoning, burn or bleeding.

The healing rate of the regeneration syringes is also only 2.5 HP per second. This makes it slower than Natural Healing, which hits 5 HP per second. However, it only sets in if you have not suffered any damage for a while. It also only fills a bar that has been opened, while the regeneration syringe slowly fills all the life bars.
