Comparison of improvements

matching of skills

Added skills option to the Lobby screen. If this option is enabled, you will only play with players of the assigned skill level. Please note that choosing this option may reduce the number of players in your game.

If this option is disabled, we will first try to match you with players in your assigned qualification group. If such a game is not available, we look for a game with as many players as possible, starting from those who have also disabled the Skills option.

Ratios for different types of groups

We have added a coefficient that increases or decreases the PvP group rating based on type.

Drop in PvP ranking after an absence

We’ve introduced a temporary reduction in your PvP rating if you’ve been inactive for a while, to give you a chance to regain muscle memory and make it easier to return to the hunt without any unfair encounters.


  • Improvements to custom audio blast ammo.
  • Improved suspicious-sounding henhouse status to better distinguish it from hibernation status.
  • Mixture improvements and adjustments for Winfield variants (1876m, Centennial and 1887). That century is now a distant memory, while in 1887 the volume was reduced. Both weapons should now be more in line with others in their class.


Reduced XP cost in all categories of the weapon book (all variants and custom ammo). This change is intended to encourage experimentation and variation in your cargo choices.


matching of skills

  • Added a skill field in the Bounty Hunter and Quickplay lobbies.
  • The option is enabled by default and cannot be removed:
  • The players are still in training mode
  • Random groups
  • This option is disabled by default in Quickplay.
  • When this feature is enabled, you will only play with players from your team’s PvP rank group.
  • If this option is disabled, a search for players in your team’s PvP ranking will be performed first. However, if a complete match cannot be found, it will be drawn from the players who have also disabled this option.

Developer Comments:

This change is designed to give players more control over their playing experience and to ensure that they are paired with players of similar skill level. It is important to note that these changes will also affect the PvP bracket, which may vary depending on the region you log into. This setup should ensure that there are enough players during the game, but keep in mind that it won’t be perfect. We will monitor progress closely and make changes as necessary.

Search for partners per group

Random groups will follow the standard rules for skill-based matchmaking, with some minor changes to the way PvP group rankings are calculated.

To make the partner selection process as fair as possible, we added additional factors to calculate the group score. Each of the five group types (Solo, Random Duo, Random Trio, Guest Duo, Guest Trio) takes into account the average score of all participants and some additional multipliers. For example, a single player does not have the same PvP value as a team of three players, where each team member has the same PvP value as a single player.

Drop in PvP ranking after an absence

Rank reduction (temporary PvP rank reduction), applied when you have not hunted for a while. This applies to the next 10 games you play when you return. Once you complete these 10 games, this expiration date will be removed and your PvP rank will be calculated as normal.

For more information on the changes to player search, see our latest [blog] ( ).


Non-standard ammunition types : Visual adjustment

The visuals on the equipment panel in the HUD have been modified and improved to enhance the visibility and readability of the various ammunition types. We’ve also fixed some inconsistencies with this update.

We also made some changes to the hardware screen to improve the readability of the currently used patterns. (Changing the default symbol size, removing useless + symbols, correcting some alignment issues).

Roster: Visual configuration

Changes have been made to the visual display of hunter possession points on the list screen – overview page to improve readability and scrolling.

  • Fixed an issue where some explosives made a (non-lethal) head-butting sound when hitting/destroying an object.

  • Problem solved where the legendary Scavengers Snare concertina bomb appeared as a white box model in the sky.
  • Fixed an issue where the single-shot weapon’s ammo supply was not replenished when it was restored.
  • Fixed a problem where explosive projectiles did less damage to big red doors.

The World

  • In some cases, when all the consumption slots are full, you will not be able to buy any other refreshments than those in the first slot.

  • Questions: Killing 50 bosses is not counted as a hit and not a turn.
  • Inconsistencies in sensitivity may occur when using the arrow mode. Melee and weapon turnover is something else.
  • A quick pass between the ROV and the hip with the fan can sometimes cause the fire to go out.
