Hunt: Showdown – Celebrate five years of Hunt with a new Twitch Drops

Hunters, we couldn't be more excited to celebrate our fifth anniversary! First of all, everyone here on the team would like to thank you for being part of one of the most unique, friendly and, creative communities in games. Whether you've been with us from the start, or you are just diving into the Bayou for the first time, we are so proud to have you onboard.

In five years Hunt has gone from strength to strength, with record-breaking CCUs each year 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", our fan favorite boss Scrapbeak, a new map, DeSalle, and much more. Our 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 lore and the dark world of Louisiana in 1895. And, of course, along the way, we've also held Twitch Drops events where you can earn rewards for simply watching or streaming Hunt online, and, to mark this very special anniversary, we have another one for you!

Fifth Anniversary Twitch Drops Event!

Twitch Drops are in-game rewards that you can earn by watching streamers playing Hunt during this weeklong event. To collect Drops rewards, all you have to do is connect your Twitch account to your game account and start watching your favorite Hunt: Showdown streamers throughout the week. Drops rewards are also available to all Twitch Streamers, so if you want to stream as part of the event, ensure Drops is enabled on your channel and connect your account via your creator dashboard. To find out how to connect your accounts as a viewer or streamer, everything else you need to know, check out our dedicated Twitch Drops area of the site.

So.. let's take a look at the Twitch Drops schedule and rewards, including Legendary Hunter, Kill Buyer:

“Kenneth Jupe's love for horses turned into a morbid obsession as he dissected his beloved Butterscotch in fascination. When there was nothing left of her, and no money for another, Jupe ran to the Bayou where he could dismember to his heart's desire."
