Hunt: Showdown devs are mad because players are exploiting the Peacekeeper trait

Hunt: Showdown developers are mad because players have been using the Peacekeeper trait in a bad way. The trait was designed to give players slight advantages in specific scenarios, but exploiting it allowed players to boost their stats and ease progression.

For that reason, the developer’s action was quite clear. They have temporarily disabled accounts that have been taking advantage of the Peacekeeper trait and announced that those who will continue exploiting will not be tolerated.

As per the developer on Steam:

Attention Hunters,

Following the launch of Update 1.16 and the Desolation’s Wake event, it’s come to our attention that the Peacekeeper trait has been used in ways that contradict the spirit of fair play. Specifically, some players have been exploiting this feature to artificially boost their statistics and progression.

These actions are against our Terms of Service and will not be tolerated. Those found to be exploiting the game will face temporary suspensions, and any illegitimately gained statistics, items, or other benefits will be revoked. However, all Deaths recorded during this period will remain on your account.

We’re committed to maintaining a fair and enjoyable gaming environment for all our players. Thank you for your understanding and for helping us keep the Hunt community great.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
