Today we want to take a closer look at some of the historical context surrounding the creation of those new Legendary characters. You won't find Stillwater Bayou, Lawson Delta, or DeSalle on any map, but in the world of Hunt, they are located in Louisiana. The Chitimacha were the original inhabitants of that area, and the Atakapa, Caddo, Houma, Natchez, Choctaw, and Tunica are just a few of the peoples who inhabited other parts of what is now called Louisiana. What is there now and what was there in 1895 – the year in which Hunt: Showdown is set – would not exist if it weren't for the violent murder and displacement of those people. Local History and Supernatural Fiction Though Hunt: Showdown is a work of supernatural fiction, those fictions are embedded in real-world history. We have chosen not to recreate the horrible discrimination, violence, or oppression visited upon Native people, Black people, and Asian people (and many others) during that time period in the United States in the Hunt in the name of entertainment. We want all players to enjoy our game without asking them to relive any of these traumas. But we are committed to acknowledging them. At the time of the arrival of the first European colonizers on the continent in 1492, there were between 5 and 15 million people already living there. By the end of the American-Indian Wars in the late 19 th century, there were fewer than 238,000 of those people remaining. The Chitimacha originally settled the Bayou region of Louisiana around 500 AD. In the early 1700s, war and conflict with French and Spanish colonizers nearly annihilated the entire Chitimacha population, with many of the survivors forced into slavery. During the twelve years of conflict at the beginning of the 1700s, the Chitimacha were the most enslaved population in Louisiana, according to the tribal history recounted on the Chitmacha's website. Though Chitimacha land rights were recognized and provided protection through the U.S.C. Title 25, those protections and claims were violated again and again by the U.S. government in the following centuries. It was not until 1916 that the tribe was officially recognized by the U.S. government. During the 1800s, officially sanctioned displacement programs continued this destruction across the country. The so-called Indian Removal Act, which was signed into law by President Andrew Jackson in 1830, is a particularly nasty example. This law demanded that Native populations leave their land and move west to make room for colonists. Those who refused were forced into what became a death march – later known as the Trail of Tears – during which thousands were displaced and thousands more died. So...Hunt: Showdown - Light the Shadow EventAug 25, 2021 - Community Announcements{STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/30897473/9e63129a5cdec34edd88f390997814f54c809883.jpg They have been watching you, Hunters. They've seen every victory and defeat at the hands of the bayou. Heard of every monster you have had to face; human or otherwise. While they admit they're impressed by the work you've done these past few years, they're finally ready to show you what they can do. Native American Hunters are entering the Bayou and with them the Light the Shadows Event! To celebrate their arrival, Hunters will get to travel two paths to earn Legendary weapons, Blood Bonds, Hunt Dollars, and the chance for two Legendary Native American Hunters to join your ranks. Which route will you take first: The Path of the Hunting Bow or the Path of the Throwing Axe? The choice is yours and the rewards are bountiful. If you manage to finish the first path you choose, you can return and travel the second. As for how the rest of the event works, keep reading: Path One: Pierce the Shadow Many say the Hunting Bow is as old as humanity. Lovingly crafted by deft hands trained by generations, the bow will rarely fail you in a fight, and its arrows might even find their way back to you. By choosing the Path of the Hunting Bow first, and destroying your targets with this old faithful weapon, you'll earn special ammo like the Concertina Arrows, traits like Hundred Hands, and recruit Legendary Hunter “The Exile." See a full list of rewards below: Two 25-Proof Vapours Hunting Bow Hunting Bow Ammo: Poison Arrows Hunting Bow Trait: Dewclaw Legendary Conversion Pistol “Faultless" Hunting Bow Ammo: Concertina Arrows Legendary Hunting Bow “The Wayfinder" Hunting Bow Trait: Hundred Hands Hunting Bow Ammo: Frag Arrows Legendary Hunter “The Exile" Complete this path before the end of the event and you'll have the opportunity to take the Path of the Throwing Axe. But be warned: Your Event Points don't carry over and you'll be starting again from 0. Path Two: Cleave the Shadow What better marriage of metal and wood than an axe? Take aim, take a breath, and throw so you can watch it spin through the air and bite into its target. Throwing axes are sold in pairs, so the discerning Hunter can send a barrage death towards their enemies. By choosing the Path of the Throwing Axe first, and destroying targets with its gleaming blade, you'll earn Hunt Dollars, traits like Assailant, and recruit Legendary Hunter “The Third Son." See a full list of rewards below: Two 25-Proof Vapours Throwing Axe 500 Hunt Dollars 50 Blood Bonds Legendary Winfield Marksman “Bayou Phoenix" 1000 Hunt Dollars Legendary Throwing Axe “Tomahawk" Throwing Axe Trait: Assailant 150 Blood Bonds Legendary Hunter “The Third Son" Complete this path before the end of the event and you'll have the opportunity to take the path of the Hunting Bow.

Below are the details of the newest additions to Hunt. We hope you enjoy and happy event Hunting! Please note: There is currently an issue where the custom ammo for the Bow will not carry over if you prestige. We are currently working on a fix for this and will have a hotfix released to resolve this as soon as possible, but it may take a few days. This does not impact the bow directly as this will be available to you once unlocked regardless, but if you wish to use the custom ammo for the Bow, we recommend to not prestige for the time being. Thanks. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/30897473/94327bbae3d6184e5ddbeb95a214f2349b54a907.png New Time of Day Introducing the newest time of day to the world of Hunt - “Sundown” Developer Note: As we come closer to the Light the Shadow event, we feel this is the perfect time introduce our newest time of day – “Sundown”, our interpretation of a dusk setting. We wanted to ensure that we did something special alongside the event and felt it would be a good setting to highlight our newest addition. This time of day will be available on all 3 maps (Stillwater Bayou, Lawson Delta and DeSalle) and will be a permanent addition to the time-of-day rotations in Hunt. New Weapons Hunting Bow New medium slot weapon which allows for stealthy gameplay. Useful at both long and short range, with the added advantage of not losing its stopping power in close range fights. Its selection of custom ammo allows this weapon to be used in several different tactical situations. The bow functions much as it would in real life. Hunters must draw the string back and then release at either full or partial draw (drawing the string is not instant). At full draw max damage and velocity can be achieved however a partial shot allows for a faster firing alternative to the crossbow, this drastically reduces the damage output and velocity of each arrow. The current draw can be cancelled with the reload button and the Bolt Seer Trait will help you to locate your misplaced retrievable arrows. Arrow types (Custom Ammo) Basic - Ballistic projectile like the Crossbow Bolts but with lower weight and therefore higher range/less drop. Can be retrieved and used again. (Ammo – 1/8) Poison – Identical ballistics to a basic arrow but the tip has been treated with poison. Deals strong poison and bleed damage on impact with another player but does not generate a poison cloud. Can be retrieved and used again. (Ammo – 1/3) Frag – A less aerodynamic arrow with a small fragmentation bomb attached to the tip, it is armed on impact and will explode 1.5 seconds after its first hit, making it less reliable against moving targets, but excellent to flush targets out from cover and buildings. (Ammo - 1/3) Concertina - A less aerodynamic arrow with a small spring-loaded concertina tip that will unravel on impact. Allows you to place smal...Light the Shadow Developer Live Stream - Starting Now!Aug 24, 2021 - Community Announcements{STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/30897473/f9d8a987032cdcbd48e5ddb3c2eeb62a6886adb5.jpg We are live with a Light the Shadow Developer Live Stream!
