Hunt Showdown is still in a long ammo meta. It is not surprising that gamers ask themselves whether the Mosin Nagant or Lebel 1886 is better? The result will surprise you!

This is meta: The long ammo meta has clearly dominated Hunt Showdown for a long time now. The weapons that fire this ammunition are simply far ahead of all others. So that you know exactly which weapon is the best, we compared the top models and came to an exciting result.

Mosin-Nagant or Lebel 1886 - Which weapon is better?

How we compare: At first glance, the two weapons seem very similar, but in fact it is clear which of the two is the better choice. To make clear which one it is, let's compare:

  1. Availability
  2. Damage, rate of fire & bullet speed
  3. Attachments
  4. ammunition



Mosin and Lebel are both only available after several dozen hours of play. However, this round is clearly won by the Lebel 1886, it is available earlier and costs a bit less. In detail, it looks like this:

  • Mosin Nagant: Costs $ 490 and is available from level 72
  • Lebel 1886: Costs $ 397 and is available from level 52

Damage, bullet speed & rate of fire

Damage: According to the store's weapon description, the Lebel 1886 caused minimally less damage than the Mosin Nagant. But every Hunt player knows that basic damage is not everything! Damage to range is also crucial.

Damage (2 Shots = Dead) Mosin Nagant M1891 Lebel 1886
Arms and Legs 59 m 55 m
Body 150 m 139 m
Head (1 Shot) 250 m 250 m

Bullte speed: With bullet speed, you should be careful about your judgment. The shop tells you:

  • Mosin Nagant: 615 m/s
  • Lebel 1886: 630 m/s

In a real combat situation, it makes little difference. 15 m/s sounds like a lot, but at a distance of a few hundred meters this is absolutely not noticeable. The Mosin balls arrive at their destination just a few milliseconds later!

Bullet Velocity Mosin Nagant M1891 Lebel 1886
50 m 0,0813 Sec 0,079 Sec
100 m 0,162 Sec 0,158 Sec
200 m 0,325 Sec 0,317 Sec

Rate of fire: If you pay close attention to the rate of fire, it seems to be the same at 34 KPM (bullets per minute). However, there is one factor that is not taken into account. Since the Mosin reloads a little faster, it fires the last bullet in the clip 0.4 seconds earlier than the Lebel 1886.

Mosin Nagant: 0.923 seconds per 5 rounds
Lebel 1886: 0.962 seconds per 5 rounds


Ammunition & reloading

Reload time: First look at the store description. According to the developer, the Lebel 1886 needs 18 seconds to refill the magazine. The Mosin, however, only three seconds. More precisely it looks like this:

  • Mosin Nagant: 1.08 seconds per bullet & 3 seconds per magazine
  • Lebel 1886: 1.80 seconds per bullet & 18 seconds per magazine

Despite the larger capacity of the Lebel 1886, the Mosin is ready for use much faster when it is reloaded.

Ammunition: Both weapons start with 15 rounds, but the distribution is different. The crux, however, lies in replenishing the reserve ammunition. Because out of boxes and packages you get more ammunition for the Mosin Nagant than for the Lebel 1886.

Ammunition Mosin Nagant M1891 Lebel 1886
Start 5 + 10 10 + 5
Package + 1 Bullet + 2 Bullet
Ammo Chest + 1 - 2 Bullet + 2 - 3 Bullet
