Hunt: Showdown’s maintenance is over, and now Crytek has updated Hunt Showdown to update 18.104.22.168. The update is very small, mainly addressing client crashing issues. However, we don’t know what they are, because Crtek never said, despite the last few hotfixes detailing technical issue fixes.
Hunt Showdown Update 22.214.171.124
The new Hunt Showdown update 126.96.36.199 came with no patch notes whatsoever. Many people have been left wondering what exactly is going on with the patch. Some people want to know what client crashing it addresses, while many are asking about server fixes.
Many clips surfacing on Reddit show the servers getting lag between kills, random clipping into placements like bear traps and other general connectivity issues. We know since the 188.8.131.52. Update, there have been several updates addressing the game’s instability. 184.108.40.206 The new sundown game time was recently hotfixed with other quickplay events, model issues, and other client-side to server-side visibility issues. If you go back to 220.127.116.11, there were many bug fixes for UI, game client, weapons and server-side issues. It seems very strange that Crytek didn’t mention anything about what came in the 18.104.22.168 update, regardless of how big or small the patch is.
It seems like there has been an update every Tuesday since the Light the Shadow update. Moreso, this is the only recent Hunt Showdown update not to have patch notes. If you feel some big issues affect the game, you might be in luck next week, hunter.
