Guide for New Players

Understanding the Objective

In Hunt Showdown, you play as a hunter in 1895 Louisiana, tasked with killing and banishing a powerful monster, and escaping with the bounty. There are other hunters who will also be trying to complete the same objective, so be careful and stay alert.

Choosing Your Loadout

Before starting a mission, you will need to choose your hunter, weapons, tools, and consumables. Each hunter has their own unique traits and abilities, so choose wisely. The loadout should be based on the mission objective, map terrain, and the type of enemy you’ll be facing.

Moving and Scouting

In Hunt Showdown, stealth and caution are key. Move slowly and silently to avoid alerting other hunters or the monster. Use your Dark Sight to scan the area for clues, enemy players, and the monster’s location.


When you encounter enemies, choose your tactics based on the situation. Use cover, terrain, and your equipment to your advantage. Aim for headshots to take down enemies quickly. Remember that every gunshot or explosion will reveal your position, so choose your shots wisely.

Boss Fight

When you finally locate the monster, it’s time for the boss fight. The monster is incredibly powerful, so be prepared for a tough battle. Use your weapons, tools, and consumables to whittle down its health. Try to avoid its attacks, and focus on dealing damage.

Extracting with the Bounty

After killing the monster, you’ll need to banish it and wait for it to be banished. This will attract other hunters to your location, so be prepared for a final showdown. Once the banishment is complete, pick up the bounty and extract it to safety. Be careful not to get ambushed by other hunters along the way.

Leveling Up

As you progress through the game, you’ll earn XP and unlock new weapons, tools, and traits. Experiment with different loadouts and playstyles to find what works best for you.


Hunt Showdown can be played solo or in teams of up to three players. If you’re playing with a team, communicate effectively and work together to complete the objective. Cover each other’s backs, share equipment and consumables, and revive fallen teammates.


Hunt Showdown is a challenging game, so don’t get discouraged if you don’t succeed on your first try. Practice and learn from your mistakes, and you’ll become a better hunter over time.
