Hunt: Showdown’s New “Traitor’s Moon: The Dark Is Rising” Live Event Is Here

Press Releases

Grab free legendary weapons and other rewards in Hunt‘s latest update, plus new DLC featuring the “Turncoat” legendary hunter and more

FRANKFURT, Germany March 24, 2022 – A new darkness rises in the bayou as Hunt: Showdown’s latest live event, “Traitor’s Moon: The Dark Is Rising,” launches today. Going on until April 14, the event offers players rewards for completing challenges, solving clues, looting corpses and smashing effigies. A range of new stackable boosters are available for players to accelerate their progress, and new stories about a sinister plan for the manipulation of the corruption in the bayou will be revealed.

Players can unlock early access to four new weapons – the Scottfield Brawler, Berthier Riposte, Caldwell Model 92, and Winfield Model 93 – and further rewards include new legendary skins for weapons and equipment. These four weapons won’t be officially available in-game until a future date after the event, so now’s a great time to get hands-on experience with them.

Launching alongside the live event today is the “Meridian Turncoat” DLC. The pack includes “Turncoat,” a new legendary hunter whose mind is set on revenge after being sent to war and falsely accused of treason for being the sole survivor of an ambush. The new DLC also includes two legendary weapons, a pair of Dolch 96 pistols named Crossfire and Ambush, plus a new legendary ammo crate – Red Cask. The “Meridian Turncoat” DLC is available now on Steam, Xbox and PlayStation stores for $9.99/€9.99/£9.99.

The in-game store also has special offers running for the duration of the live event. The “Traitor’s Moon Event Bundle” features a new legendary choke bomb, the “Cicada,” 1,000 event points, and a 24-Hour Chary’s Contract at a 15% discount. The Cicada is also available to purchase separately. A new loyalty bonus offers 800 blood bonds – Hunt‘s in-game currency – if players complete the event by unlocking all rewards, purchase an event-related item from the in-game store, and buy the “Meridian Turncoat” DLC. As a special offer, PC players can also buy an event bundle which includes the base game plus four DLCs for up to 56% off in total.

Hunt: Showdown is out now on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation®4. Players can find out more about this latest live event and the game by visiting

About Hunt: Showdown

Hunt: Showdown is a competitive first-person bounty hunting game that packs the thrill of survival games into a match-based format. Set in Louisiana in 1895, the game boasts a mixture of PvP and PvE elements that creates a uniquely tense experience. It’s not just the creatures who are a threat—it’s every hunter on the map. In the classic game mode, a match of Hunt pits 12 players — playing solo or in teams of two or three — against each other as they race to take out gruesome beasts for a bounty they must collect and get off of the map. Hunt‘s quickplay mode offers shorter matches for solo players to scavenge for weapons as they compete for a diminishing pool of bounty. The higher the risk, the higher the reward – but a single mistake could cost everything. For more information, visit
