Hunt: Showdown is celebrating its landmark fifth anniversary with a brand-new Twitch Drops campaign that offers a wide range of rewards, including a Legendary Hunter (“Kill Buyer”), and for the first time, special anniversary crates containing various items.

In five years, Hunt has gone from strength to strength, with record-breaking CCUs in the past two years and new content added regularly, including new maps, bosses, live events, and hundreds of weapons. Additions in the last two years alone have included the Stalker Beetle, Questlines, fiery map-changer “The Inferno,” fan-favorite boss Scrapbeak, a new map (“DeSalle”), and much more.

Live events have offered increasing amounts of rewards, and the Moon Event series that started with Traitor’s Moon and continued through to the most recent Devil’s Moon event have become narrative experiences and gone deeper into the game’s lore. There is always more for current and new players to experience in the Bayou, and there’s never been a better time to play!
