The notes for Update 1.10 can be found below.

Please note, the known issues list will be provided once the update reaches the live servers.

New Consumable: Stalker Beetle

The Stalker Beetle is a new flying “character,” controlled by a Player in first person view. It is spawned and activated as a consumable. It adds reconnaissance capabilities to the arsenal. The Stalker Beetle is unlocked at Bloodline Rank 15 and costs $45.

  • The Stalker Beetle is activated by throwing them anywhere similar to a dynamite stick or a decoy
  • Throwing the Beetle starts a transition into its own camera view
  • While the Beetle is alive, the controlling Hunter cannot move or perform any actions.


  • The Beetle’s camera is permanently using Dark Sight, but with a slightly increased view distance.

  • The Beetle’s Dark Sight will not consume Dark Sight Boost the Hunter might have and does not highlight enemy Hunters.

  • The Beetle has two control schemes:

    • Absolute (Default):

      • Movement input applies only horizontally.
      • Altitude can be changed via analogue triggers (controller) or dedicated buttons (keyboard).
    • Relative:

      • Movement input applies relative to the camera and changes altitude depending on orientation.
      • Altitude controls can be used for additional adjustments.
  • Stalker Beetles cannot land and stay airborne constantly.

  • The Beetle can be deactivated to return to the ground or detonated to cause a small explosion. Stalker Beetles will also be deactivated by the controlling Player receiving damage/dying, exposure to a Choke Cloud, or touching water.

    • The Player returns to their own perspective after deactivating the Beetle. Any Player can pick up a deactivated Stalker Beetle on the ground.
    • The explosion will cause 5 damage to Hunters, applies Poison, applies Medium Bleeding, and destroys objects like lamps and glass pane windows. Additionally, objects like traps and cranks will be triggered; barricaded doors and window shutters will be opened if the explosion is on the “correct” side.
  • The Beetle has a range of 150m. When it exceeds this distance, an “Out of Range” warning will be displayed with a 10 second countdown. The Beetle will be deactivated if the 10s expires while still out of range.

  • The Stalker Beetle is highly vulnerable and will die to a single bullet or melee attack. When killed, there is no explosion, and it is no longer able to be picked up.


  • Players can Ping from the Beetle’s perspective.
  • Traits: Three traits have been updated at this time to include the Stalker Beetle. The effects of Blade Seer, Poison Sense, and Vigilant will also apply in the Stalker Beetle’s sight.
  • Proximity Warnings: Stalker Beetles will trigger all warning effects, as a Hunter would. This includes red clue warnings, boss whisper warnings, extraction warnings, and blocking extraction progress. Additionally, enemy Stalker Beetles will show up as a small orange visual effect in Boosted Dark Sight.
  • Audio: While flying, Stalker Beetles produce a new, unique sound that is linked to their velocity. The faster the Beetle is flying, the louder the sound. Beetles should be able to disguise their presence in gun fights but heard when the environment is quieter.
  • Environment: Stalker Beetles interact with the environment, as if they are a Hunter. They will startle close-by monsters, make noise on hanging chains (and any other prop they touch), startle crows and horses, and trigger traps they touch (killing the Beetle).


  • Hive swarms can now be killed by Fusees and Flare Pistols.


Improved Underground System
  • Fighting close to an underground entry:

    • Previously, sounds that were produced underground were completely muffled, even close to an entry. The new system should behave more realistically and will take the distance to the underground entry into account.
    • The new system will reflect how “deep” a sound is inside now. With the sound being more muffled the “deeper” it is.
  • Distant behavior of sounds played underground:

    • All sounds (including gunshots and explosions) will be inaudible outside of the underground above 150m.
    • This applies in the reverse as well; all sounds produced outside the underground are muted above 150m.

Developer’s Note:
With this patch, we are making fighting in and around the underground more reliable, from the Audio side. We’re very interested in your feedback on this new system!

Audio Mixing Changes
  • Dynamite Stick explosions are now quieter, at distance.


Caldwell Pax Claw
  • The Pax Claw now deals the same damage as the Knife, at the cost of additional stamina drain.
Caldwell Conversion Uppercut
  • Explosive ammo on the Uppercut can now headshot enemy Hunters at short to medium ranges (approximately 35m).
Compact Ammo Rifles

Compact ammo rifles now have an increased effective range, including custom ammo.

  • Winfield 1873

    • Base and all variants are now 150m effective range (193m with FMJ).
  • Winfield 1873C

    • Base and Marksman are now 150m effective range (193 with FMJ).
    • Silencer is now 135m (162 with FMJ).
    • Vandal variants are now 140m (178 with FMJ).
  • Nagant M1895 Officer Carbine

    • Carbine and Deadeye are both now 125m.
Two-slot Ammo Weapons
  • Weapons that can use two ammo slots now have half price for each slot. This is to account for the fact that you are technically buying only half of the ammo per slot in any weapon that can use two ammo types.
  • The Romero 77 Alamo cannot use two ammo types and does not benefit from half price, even though it is in the Romero 77 unlock tree.


Trait Changes
  • Conduit: In addition to its current effect, Conduit now grants 5 minutes of stamina when picking up a clue or bounty token.
  • Ghoul: The range and type of monster is no longer limited. Any kill to any monster (including the boss targets) at any range will result in a small health gain.
  • Poison Sense: The default range has been increased to 150m.
