Weapon Skin Contest to Celebrate the Second Anniversary of Hunt


On February 22nd it will have been two years since Hunt: Showdown was released on Steam Early Access. Since then, the game has seen 22 updates and full release on both Steam and Xbox. The game has grown and evolved in close cooperation with the community, and the journey isn't even close to over – on February 18th, Hunt will release on PS4 – and to celebrate where we've been and everything still to come, we want to honor the community that made it all possible.

So if you've always wanted to see your own weapon skin design in game, now's your chance! To celebrate our Hunt-iversary, we're hosting a weapon skin design contest, and the winning design will be added to the game. Just download any of our three weapon templates, add your design(s), and submit as many as you want! Deadline for submissions is February 17, 2020.

The winner will also receive:

- A Hunt t-shirt

- One copy of the game with all DLCs or 3000 Blood Bonds

- Naming rights for their weapon skin (names subject to team approval)

A note: You don't have to do a design for all three weapons. Do one! Do two! Do three! Do sixteen! It's up to you. Just make sure to do at least one, and to do it by the deadline on February 17, 2020.
