Savage, nightmarish monsters roam the Louisiana swamps, and you are part of a group of rugged bounty hunters bound to rid the world of their ghastly presence. Banish these creatures from our world, and you will be paid generously—and given the chance to buy more gruesome and powerful weapons. Fail, and death will strip you of both character and gear. Your experience, however, remains in your pool of hunters—called your Bloodline—always.
HIGH RISK, HIGH REWARD, HIGH TENSION
Hunt’s competitive, match-based gameplay mixes PvP and PvE elements to create a uniquely tense experience where your life, your character, and your gear are always on the line. At the beginning of each Bounty Hunt match, up to 12 players set out to track their monstrous targets. Depending on which mode and team options you’ve chosen, that 12 will include a combination of solo players and teams of two or three. Once they’ve found and defeated one of these they will receive a bounty—and instantly become a target for every other Hunter left on the map. If you don’t watch your back, you’ll find a knife in it, and your last memory will be of someone else walking away with your prize. The higher the risk, the higher the reward–but a single mistake could cost you everything.
Hunt's Quick Play game mode offers a shorter match, during which up to ten individual players race to scavenge gear and find and close four rifts as they compete for a diminishing pool of bounty. First Hunter to the final rift absorbs its energy, but must survive the final count down to complete the mission—while the other Hunters attempt to take them out and take the prize for themselves. When the timer runs out the winner keeps their Hunter, while the rest perish.
Even in death, you will be able to progress among the ranks of Hunters via your Bloodline. Though one character may die, their experience will be transferred to your Bloodline, where it can be applied your other Hunters. If you make it off of the map alive, you will be able to use the money and experience you earn to kit out new Hunters and prepare for the next match. If you die, you lose everything but your experience.
Dark Sight allows Hunters to see into the veil between worlds, making that which cannot be seen by mortal eyes visible to those who have been initiated. Use Dark Sight when you are tracking monsters, and a ghostly light will guide you toward your next target. Dark Sight also marks players carrying a bounty, making them more vulnerable to ambush while trying to escape.

Algiers Phoenix: Christened by the New Orleans Fire Department, the Algiers Phoenix helped several victims “rise from the ashes” when it freed them from the flames devouring the Algiers neighborhood. A heavy knife handy both in an emergency, and in the field.
Fire Torn : Charred but not destroyed, this Sparks LRR is not a testament to the destructive power of fire, but to the resilience of that which withstands it. A symbol of hope for rejuvenation.
Hunt’s Zhong Kui DLC features two new Legendary Hunters and a new Legendary Blade:
- the eponymous Zhong Kui (Hunter)
- the ominous Dead Blessing (Hunter)
- the Blood Orchid (weapon)
Zhong Kui is the descendant of long line of demon hunters, historically celebrated on the Chinese New Year as a banisher of malignant spirits.
Dead Blessing is the dark inversion of a symbol of good luck and one bet away from the promise of a peaceful end.
Blood Orchid is a revered blade, in the traditional Chinese Dao style, ornamented with a flowing red sash that brings luck to the wielder.
The Arcane Archaelogist includes one Legendary Hunter and a new Legendary Weapon:
- The Archaeologist (Hunter)
- Mesa Updraught (weapon)
Elise Austin made her name trying to understand and protect the archaeological footprints of the Hopi people. This led her to the legend of The Destruction of Palatkwapi, a myth with which she became obsessed - to the detriment of her hard-won reputation. Drifting through the desert, a dream came to her: two children tumbling into black water. Recognizing the image’s importance, she followed it, like so many others, into the bayou.
Accompanying the Archaeologist on her desert treks, this Vetterli 71 Deadeye was most at home perched on the rock face of a mesa, scanning the scrub plain for hostiles, and eliminating them.
Harold Black’s Journal, a collection of anatomical sketches, scientific observations and psychological evaluations, constitute most of what the AHA knows about their enemy. Black received little success until later in life when a chance assignment sent it spiraling down a different path. His hodgepodge education acquired on many walks of life, gave him the unique ability to see connections no one else could, and see reason where others only saw madness.
There are two kinds of people in the world, those living on the right side of the law, and those living on the wrong. Tona Ramirez was the second kind from birth. When she buried her father in an unmarked grave on the border, she took her inheritance: his nickname and a story of a man robbed of fortune. The Rat seeks that fortune now, and that search is what brought her to Louisiana.
Gus Leroux: A former lawyer with a penchant for violence, this theatrical Hunter covers his scarred visage with a mask—not because he is ashamed of the injuries beneath, but because it terrifies his opponents.
Much like the legend whose name she uses, Llorona earned her fearsome reputation by drowning her victims and haunting her enemies. Like a shade, she is fast and subtle, with both gun and knife.
The Louisiana Legacy DLC contains two illustrious firearms: Mountain Air and Antebellum Wit. The Mountain Air is a Vetterli 71 Karabiner that hails from Alpine old country and bears an abstract patterned engraving that at once encapsulates budding dew, fertile valleys, and shearing winds. Antebellum Wit is a Romero 77 Handcannon that recalls a bygone era’s charm. A nickel-plated barrel and receiver with exquisite gold detailing is tastefully matched with an ivory colored engraved stock. Discrete in size but ostentatious in display.
A faithful companion throughout an illustrious career, Alison's Winfield was reliable to the end and a constant, comforting reminder of the home she left behind when she traveled to Louisiana.
The Legends of the Bayou DLC plunges deep into the bayou’s dark heart to christen the full release of Hunt: Showdown and provide those loyal to the cause with two new Legendary Hunter characters, two unique weapons, and 500 Blood Bonds.
