Hunt: Showdown is a challenging game. It’s not easy to survive for long in the dank, dark swamps of Louisiana. If you want to make it further in the game, you’ll need the right gear. And what better way to gear up than with some funny and compelling memes? Meme builds are a great way to lighten the mood and give you a little boost in the game. So, without further ado, here are the best weapons and tools for funny yet effective meme loadouts in Hunt: Showdown!
Best Weapons for an effective Meme Build in Hunt Showdown
Hunt Showdown won’t punish you for having a weapon that is not necessarily meta. With this game’s well-done balance, a good and intelligent player will excel even with low-tier weapons.
Fortunately, Hunt is not a game that relies on stats but strats. Even if a skilled player goes for a full melee loadout, it can be a headache for enemy hunters. Up next, we will list our favorite weapons and guns for this:
This thing doesn’t need an introduction. Getting killed by a melee attack by Bomb Lance will make the most peaceful folks want to break their screen with a hammer. This 199 Hunt dollars adapted for land combat harpoon will shoot explosives at short distances dealing significant damage on direct impact. This is great for killing bosses quickly in Hunt Showdown, but this is not where its main charm is.
What makes the Bomb Lance a middle finger weapon is its melee damage. A regular melee attack will deal 180 health points which are more than enough to kill a hunter who only carries 150 health points. A heavy melee attack does 360 damage which is overkill.
The way other players use the Bomb Lance is similar to a shotgun by closing distances between enemy hunters or flanking them. If you engage an enemy on an open field carrying this thing, you are not better than target practice for that player. If you happen to be in that situation, the best thing to do if you cannot find the cover is to zig-zag your way till you reach melee distance to kill the enemy hunter.

Bornheim No. 3 with Incendiary Ammo
In Hunt Showdown, there is nothing more annoying than an enemy hunter spamming you with special ammo that causes a lethal effect on the target. If you want to be a stone in other players’ shoes, throw Incendiary ammo to this thing.
The Bornheim No. 3 isn’t known for being meta or a high damage pistol as it only deals 74 hit points per shoot with an effective range of 64 meters but with a high rate of fire of 210 rounds per minute at the cost of 201 Hunt dollars. With Incendiary ammo, it will keep the base stats and add one more that will piss any hunter on the other end.
With this combo, you can spam enemies catching them on fire and making them go back in cover to stop the burning effect.
Dolch 96 Dual Wield
Ah yes, the powerful German semi-automatic pistol with a 10-round clip. Add a second Dolch, and you will have one of the most annoying spammy loadouts in Hunt Showdown. Make sure you carry an ammo box because you will burn through it quickly.
The downside of this gun is its price of 750 Hunt dollars. The Dolch 96 offers 97 damage per shot at an effective range of 78 meters. It also has a high rate of fire of 164 rounds per minute.
The Hunting Bow with Special Arrows
In games like Hunt Showdown, where players rely so heavily on sound, being shot by something you can’t hear is frustrating. This is especially true if you are getting spammed with a poison arrow or a concertina arrow.
For only 57 Hunt dollars (plus 85 hunt dollars for the Concertina Arrows or 65 for the Poison ones), you can carry a slightly effective meme loadout that will make your enemies paranoid and desperate to find you.
Mosin Nagant M1891 Avtomat
You either love or hate the Avtomat; there is no in-between. Nothing is scarier in Hunt Showdown than hearing an Avtomat in the compound where the bounty is. After all, it is the only automatic weapon in the game. This thing will outplay any shotgun and will make any player hesitate their moves.
If used well, the Avtomat will make you feel like a Call of Duty Team Deathmatch in Shipment on Rust. But, do not fool yourself. This automatic conversion of a bolt action rifle costs 1250 Hunt dollars. Therefore, it will definitely hurt your economy if you die right away with it. The Avtomat deals 136 damage per shot at a range of 319 meters. Yet, you won’t often hit your target at a rate of fire of 400 rpm and poor handling of 35%.
Our best recommendation is to use it in close to mid-range fights and only do burst firing. Also, we highly recommend carrying an uppercut for extra ammo and, if possible, even an ammo box.

Yes, there are other melee weapons that a player can equip for their meme loadout in Hunt Showdown. Yet, this thing has a hidden stat that everyone hates. For some reason, dying to this thing will almost make me uninstall this game. If you kill someone with this, you are not only sending them back to the main menu. You are sending a message of power and dominion. They just died to a sword in a first-person shooter.
By no means do we recommend this saber in any tactical and or practical loadout. The Cavalry Sabers cost only 60 Hunt Dollars and deal heavy melee damage of 168 hit points, enough to kill an enemy hunter.
Best Tools and Consumable for this type of Builds in Hunt Showdown
Hunt Showdown offers hunters tactical tools and consumables to give you an upper hand when attacking or defending yourself from other hunters. But of course, similar to the previous weapons we covered, you can repurpose them for your meme loadout. Up next, we will list some of the tools and consumables for this style of gameplay
Any Trip Mine
Detonating a Trip Mine in Hunt is already a very unpleasant experience. Simultaneously hitting more than one trip mine will make you reconsider your life choices. Mixing more than one of the trip mines will give your enemies a very hard time.
The best way to combine mines is by placing a bear trap followed by two different trip mines. Make sure you and your teammates remember the location of this trap if you want to maintain your friendship.
I mean, do we need to explain this? Just imagine dying to this thing. It is not even considered a weapon but a tool. The Quad Derringer deals 74 damage at an effective range of 60 meters.
Moreover, it has a rate of fire of 130 rpm and a poor muzzle velocity of 130 m/s. Jokes aside, this is basically an emergency pistol. Yet, it can also be used as your primary gun if you really, really try.
At some point, every Legendary Hunter has a goal to get a kill with a Concertina Bomb. For others, it becomes their biggest fear. Throw this bomb at an enemy, and you will trap them in a hell of barbwire with certain death.
