Hunt Showdown “sloppy sensitivity for controllers” after 1.8 update

New updates are added at the bottom of this story…….

The original story (published March 24, 2022) follows:

Crytek, the original developers of the Far Cry and Crysis series, released Hunt Showdown in early 2018. It is a multiplayer FPS currently available for previous generation consoles and Windows OS devices.

The game continues to receive support in the form of updates with new content starting today. However, a recent Hunt Showdown update also brought some issues.

According to multiple reports, the Hunt Showdown 1.8 update broke the controller sensitivity settings making it unplayable for many (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8).

Hunt Showdown broke controller sensitivity settings after last update

The Hunt Showdown 1.8 update brings some changes to game mechanics and graphics, but many players are reporting that their controller sensitivity settings are different from before (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, ten, 11).


Console Update 1.8 – Ghost Sensitivity Changes?

So, I just jumped on Hunt on PS5 and the control sensitivity seems waaaaay slower across the board after this update, even though all my point values ​​are the same.

Anyone else encounter this problem? Also, does anyone know how/what they did?

One of the hardest parts of this console game is dialing in the perfect sensibility and now it’s like starting all over again. More than frustrating!

It appears that the issue primarily affects Hunt Showdown players while running.

Sensitivity settings broken on Xbox Series X

Sensitivity settings on Xbox Series X are broken. It only applies when running, while normal walking the sensitivity doesn’t update and is painfully slow to the point where the game is unplayable. Anyone else have the same problem?

A potential workaround

That said, there is a potential workaround that might help alleviate the problem. Basically, you should adjust your controllers sensitivity settings to your liking.


However, it is also recommended that you take a photo of your current sensitivity settings before making any changes. So once a patch arrives in the future, you can roll it back to the state it was in when it started.

Do not play with your sensitivity yet. Take a picture of what you have them on now just in case you need to give a damn. Next, set the additional turning force to about one. Put mine at .90 and it feels almost exactly like before the update. Some people are saying they will revert changes to this sensitivity in the next patch. Hope this works for you, but good luck mate.

The Crytek team is working on a fix

The Crytek team is already aware of the issue and is working on a fix. According to the company, this is one of its highest priorities at the moment.
