Do you love everything about Hunt: Showdown? Do you often complete daily and weekly challenges? If so, then you must want to show off your skill in the game. For that, there is Hunt Showdown prestige.
What is Hunt Showdown Prestige?
Before we get into the details, players need to keep in mind that there are three main levels to consider in Hunt: Showdown.
- Bloodline: This can be between levels 1 to 100 and players level up this by completing different contracts.
- Hunter Level: This is from level 1 to 50 and this is a specific hunter level that players level up by surviving each mission and saving their hunter.
- Prestige: Prestige is the equivalent of Battlepass in Hunt: Showdown. Your prestige rank can be between 0 and 100. Every time a player reach Bloodline 100, they can level up their prestige rank to the next prestige level.
Prestige is mainly a Battlepass that shows you much time you have spent on the game and rewards you for it. It can be absolutely worth it for some people and absolutely worthless to other people. The value of prestige depends on hardcore gamers that play Hunt: Showdown as their main game.
How does Hunt: Showdown Prestige work?
Players need to first reach their Bloodline level 100 and then need to decide if they want to unlock prestige or not. If they go prestigious then the players will basically reset their account and lose all of their owned hunters, guns, and everything they unlocked, and they will get back to Bloodline level 1. But now, instead of being Prestige level 0 and Bloodline 100, they will be Prestige level 1 and Bloodline 1.
Prestige in Hunt is essentially a way of showing other players how amazing they are because they have essentially beaten the game over and over again, starting from scratch each time. A player with a lot of prestige levels or prestige skins is likely to be a die-hard fan of the game. These players should be feared by newbies.
How does a Prestige Reset Affect Matchmaking?
After unlocking Prestige, the matchmaking system will change and players will match with other prestigious players. For example, if you are 0/1 to 0/100 you will be matched up with players with 0/1 to 0/100 Prestige.
After you take your first level on Prestige, this range will increase greatly and now you will be matched up with players between 1/1 to 100/100. It is not the most balanced match-making system but it has its perks of matching players with skill on both teams.
A plus point to get Prestige is that Prestige unlocked players will not lose things they bought with Blood Bonds and that includes Legendary Hunters, Legendary weapons, Legendary skins, tools, and Hunter Slots. Also, players will not lose their Blood Bonds. Since this represents what players earned in-game and also what may have been bought by real money. That’s why this amount will not reset with Prestige.
Hunt: Showdown Prestige Rewards
- Players will get a random legendary or 10% xp or 2000 hunt dollars from level 1-4, 6-9, 20, 25, 30, 40, 60, 70, 80, and 90.
- Level 5, 10, 25, 50, and 100 give you a confirmed legendary.
- Lastly the levels in between 11-19, 21-24, 26-29, 31-39, 41-49, 51-59, 61-69, 71-79, 81-89, and 91-99 gives players 10%xp or 2000 hunt dollars.
Tips for Gaining and Showing Off Your Prestige
- Legendary Reward: Always remember that the main feature of Prestige is to show off your skins and brag to your friends. So you should take a legendary option every time you get the option.
- Experience Reward: Every time players can not take a legendary option; we advise you to go for XP. That will drastically reduce the time you need to level up your Prestige. Don’t go for 2000 Hunt Dollar as it is not worth it. 2000 hunt dollars is a very minimal reward for a Prestige level.
- Hunter: Some players split their games between different Hunters. We advise players to never do that. If you want to go Prestige, use your hunters until they die. When you reach Hunter Level 50 every XP you earn in a match will go completely to your Bloodline XP making it easier for you to level up your Prestige.
- Retirement: Players can retire Hunters if they have more than one level 50 hunter. This will give you back more than half the XP back and all those XP will go straight to Bloodline. This will boost your Prestige by multiple levels if you use Bloodline correctly.
- Guns: This one is a personal tip. Every time you get Prestige, think about the loadout or equipment that you will use. Instead of using random guns, focus on a single gun and unlock the loadout that you want to use. This will bring variety to your gameplay and you can learn different load-outs on different Prestige.
Why Some Players Do Not Unlock Hunt: Showdown Prestige?
The Hunt: Showdown Prestige is a big grind and not for everybody. It should only be unlocked by players who are dedicated to the game. You have to put in the work to earn the rewards. The players that don’t unlock Prestige, either don’t care to show off or don’t have much time to play the game or they don’t like to unlock all the guns every time.
Whatever their reason might be, Prestige teaches players to adapt to different guns and if some players don’t want to learn to adapt, that’s their choice. What matters is that they are having fun playing the game and skins don’t really matter in the end. It’s just a cosmetic. I have seen so many players play badly with the best skin. Additionally, I have also seen players who solo carry a game with no skin at all. Everyone has a different style of playing.
Before we end this guide, Players should always remember that Hunt: Showdown Prestige is not a show-off of your skill. It is just a cosmetic. Many players, feel like not playing with randoms with less Prestige than them. That’s a big mistake in my opinion. Players will always have more fun playing with randoms rather than playing with toxic but high skilled players. Try not to let the skins get to your head.
In conclusion, there will always be a group of people that will say that leveling up Prestige should be the main priority of the game. Likewise, there will be the casuals that say “I don’t care, I’m just here to have fun.”
Whichever group that you fall in, always remember that as long as you are enjoying the game, you should follow whatever desire your heart tells you. If you are not into grinding and Hunt is not your main game, then Prestige is not for you. If on the other hand, you love the game, want to keep pushing yourself, are a huge fan of Hunt Showdown lore, and just love everything about the game, prestige in Hunt may be exactly what you want!
