Work In Progress
Hunt: Showdown is a multiplayer survival horror video game developed and published Crytek. The game was originally created by Crytek USA, who wished to create a spiritual successor to Darksiders—a video game series developed by their predecessor, Vigil Games—under the title Hunt: Horrors of the Gilded Age. After the initial announcement in June 2014, Crytek USA was shut down due to financial issues, and the development was brought to the Crytek headquarters. The game, under the new title Hunt: Showdown, was re-announced in May 2017. Hunt: Showdown was launched on Steam in early access on February 22, 2018, and was officially released on August 27, 2019.
The game is set in a supernatural late 19th century, where bounty hunters enter the Louisiana swampland to hunt down dangerous monsters and collect their bounty. The game is PvPvE, with players fighting AI monsters to claim bounties and also fighting each other to take over others' bounties.
The following guns are seen in the early access version Hunt: Showdown:
Colt Open Top
The Colt Open Top revolver appears as the "Caldwell Conversion Pistol". Although it has the overall appearance of an Open Top, it has an octagonal barrel like a Colt 1851 Navy Conversion, and the cylinder and loading gate are both very similar to the Single Action Army. There are a couple variants of the gun, including one that replaces the cylinder with a system of chained-together chambers, in a manner rather similar to the Treeby Chain Gun or the Josselyn chain revolver known in-game as the "Conversion Chain Pistol".
Colt Walker Cartridge Conversion
Another variant of the "Caldwell Conversion Pistol", called the "Caldwell Conversion Uppercut", takes the standard revolver and enlarges it to use rifle cartridges, with the resultant weapon resembling a cartridge conversion of a Colt Walker.
The Russian Nagant M1895 revolver under its real name. It is tied with the Winchester Model 1873 for the most variants of any weapon in the game: the base Nagant, the "Silencer" variant, which is the only silenced pistol in the game, the "Precision" variant, which adds a shoulder stock-holster (taken from the Colt Army Special revolver), the "Deadeye" variant, which improves upon the Precision variant by adding a scope, and three double-action variants, accurately named "Officer" - the base Officer model, the "Brawler" variant with an integrated knuckle duster, and the "Carbine" variant with stock and extended barrel.
The Sharps Pepperbox appears as the "Quad Derringer", which is a tool rather than a firearm, allowing a character to bring one along with other weapons.
The German Mauser C96 appears as the "Dolch 96", the only other version is the "Dolch 96 Precision" variant which adds the C96 shoulder stock.
The Bergmann 1896 was added to the game in Update 5.0 as the "Bornheim No. 3". The game depicts the en-bloc clip used on the Bergmann 1896; a partial reload has the hunter putting individual rounds into the magazine, while an empty reload will have the hunter replace the en-bloc clip. There is also an "Extended" version with an 8 shot magazine (although this can only be fed by single rounds), and a "Match" version with a wire-frame stock and extended barrel.
Of note is that the weapon is one of the few weapons capable of being affected by the "Bulletgrubber" trait, which recovers rounds ejected (when opening the action) in partial reloads.
Webley & Scott No. 1 Mk. III*
The "Flare Pistol" is a Webley & Scott No. 1 Mk. III*, albeit with a somewhat strange hexagonal chamber profile rather than the real flare gun's round one. Gameplay-wise, it is classified as a "Tool" rather than a weapon, and is primarily used to provide illumination in dark areas (something which Hunt: Showdown certainly doesn't have a shortage of); it can still be used as one in an emergency, though its damage relies primarily on afterburn rather than initial impact damage.
Colt Single Action Army
An update added the Colt Single Action Army to H:S's arsenal, going by the name "Caldwell Pax" ("Pax" being Latin for "Peace", an allusion to the SAA's nickname of "Peacemaker"). A decent all-rounder, the SAA holds 6 rounds of "Medium" ammunition, and behaves rather like a somewhat tamer version of the cartridge-converted Colt Walker "Uppercut". As with the rest of the game's gate-loading revolvers, the player character incorrectly ignores the ejector rod when reloading.
The SAA has one variant to its name, the "Claw"; this has broken grip panels and a blade attached to the base of the grip, with its main advantage being stronger pistol-whipping.
Added in Update 6.0, the "LeMat Mark 2 Revolver" is a fictitious cartridge conversion of the LeMat 1861; a rather strange choice, given that actual cartridge-firing versions of the LeMat did actually exist. It is correctly depicted with a 9-round capacity plus an additional shotgun shell, with the lever on the hammer being appropriately moved up or down to fire pistol-caliber rounds (of the "Compact" variety; this presumably makes it a .36-caliber version, though with how vague the in-game calibers are one can't really be sure) or shotgun shells.
The cylinder is reloaded through a side-mounted gate (with there not even being an ejector rod for the player character to ignore this time around, though the cap-and-ball version's loading/ramming lever is still alive and well), and the shotgun is reloaded through a completely fictitious method wherein the player character grabs the barrel and breaks the weapon open, in a manner possibly inspired by the LeMat seen in the TV series Johnny Ringo; exactly why this method can't be used to reload the cylinder as well isn't clear, apart from the usual "balance reasons".
Winchester Model 1873
The Winchester Model 1873 appears as the "Winfield M1873". It has multiple variants - the "Winfield M1873C", which is lighter and easier to aim but has a 7 round mag tube, the "Winfield M1873 Aperture", which as the name implies uses a Vernier aperture sight, the "Winfield M1873 Swift", which is modified to accept a speedloader, the "Winfield M1873 Talon", which mounts blades on the stock for improved melee damage, the "Winfield M1873C Marksman", which attaches a scope, and the "Winfield M1873 Silencer", which is fitted with a integral suppressor.
The Sharps 1874 appears as the "Sparks LRR" (Long Range Rifle) chambered in .45-70. It has two variants - the "Sparks LRR Sniper", which uses a scope, and the "Sparks LRR Silencer", which is self-explanatory.
Vetterli M1869/71 Carbine
The Swiss Vetterli M1869/71 Carbine appears as the "Vetterli 71 Karabiner". The "Bayonet" variant adds a bayonet and the "Deadeye" variant adds a scope.
The Mosin-Nagant M1891 appears under its real name. It appears to be mostly based on the 3rd configuration of the M1891 infantry rifle due to having a front sling swivel, an upper handguard, and an open blade front sight. It also has a rear sight similar to a M1891/30 and a curved pistol grip like the Finnish M39.
It has several variants - the self-explanatory "Bayonet", two cut-down "Obrez" variants, one with a melee-damage-increasing "Mace" (a steel cap on the end of the stock, rather reminiscent of many Flintlock Pistols) and one without, the "Sniper" variant, which adds the expected scope, and the "Avtomat" variant, which is an automatic conversion bearing some resemblance to the Huot Automatic Rifle that has a fifteen-round drum magazine (still loaded with stripper clips).
A double rifle, possibly a Holland & Holland, appears as the "Nitro Express Rifle".
The Lebel 1886 was added to the game in Update 6.0 under its real name; it features a correct 10-round capacity, with 8 rounds in the magazine tube, one in the chamber, and one in the cartridge elevator. There are two additional varieties of Lebel: the "Talon" variant has an axe blade in the stock that boosts melee damage, and the "Marksman" variant has a scope.
The somewhat obscure IC1 (Interchangeable Carbine Mark 1) variant of the Martini-Henry (so named due to its ability to swap between artillery and cavalry configurations) is added to Hunt in the 1.1.3 patch. It serves as an alternative to the Sharps, with the main tradeoff being a faster reload in exchange for a slower muzzle velocity and poorer long-range effectiveness.
Aside from the standard variant, there is a "Riposte" version with a bayonet (showing that the IC1 is in its artillery configuration, as the cavalry setup lacks a bayonet lug), and a "Deadeye" variant with a low-powered scope.
Springfield Model 1866
Also added in the 1.1.3 patch was a Springfield Model 1866, an early variant of the Trapdoor Springfield Rifle chambered in .50-70 Government (a fact which is mentioned directly in-game, where it uses generically-named "Medium" ammunition).
It has an impressive four additional variants; there is a scoped "Marksman" variant, a sawn-off "Compact" variant, and two variants thereof (one with an improvised bayonet called the "Striker", and one with a low-power scope called the "Deadeye"). The standard rifle is available at rank 0, thereby serving as the long-ranged option for new players (with the mid-range and close-range niches being filled by the Winchester and the "Romero", respectively).
Colt Model 1878
The Colt Model 1878 Coach Gun appears as the "Caldwell Rival 78". A sawn off version known as the "Handcannon" is also available.
The Spencer 1882 appears as the "Specter 1882". The shotgun has a capacity of 4+1, one less than reality, where its tube magazine holds 5 rounds. It has a shortened variant with a bayonet attached resembling a WWI era trench gun, and a sawed-off variant with a three-round magazine tube and a gripped metal pump handle.
Single Barreled Shotgun
A Single Barreled Shotgun appears as the "Romero 77" (possibly a reference to director George A. Romero). There are 3 variants available, including a sawn-off version called the "Handcannon", a full sized version with a large melee assembly on the stock called the "Talon", and a sawn off made into a makeshift hatchet which is fittingly dubbed the "Hatchet".
The Browning Auto-5 appears as the "Crown & King Auto-5".
