Hunt: Showdown’s latest update adds crossbows, silencers, knives, and even a bayonet to your weapon options.

Hunt: Showdown has proved itself a fascinating multiplayer game, but it’s still in early access – which means new features are always underway. Today, that means players can obtain a wide variety of stealth weapons, ranging from crossbows to a handheld combat axe.

The update includes a variety of fixes and changes, but the weapons will likely be the primary interest to new players. For example, the Sparks LRR and Winfield now have variants with mounted silencers, the Specter 1882 gains a bayonet, and players have three new crossbows to choose from. There’s certainly enough variety here to make stealth runs a valid gameplay approach, although you still have to worry about NPC enemies in the map.

The full, lengthy changelist can be read here, but we’ve grabbed the highlights for you below:

Hunt: Showdown is available now from Steam Early Access.
