Predator: Hunting Grounds | Update 1.13 Highlights

predator: hunting grounds update 1.13 patch notes

The most obvious change in Predator: Hunting Grounds update 1.13 is the addition of the Samurai Predator. This fearsome new Predator is a paid DLC variant that comes equipped with the Predator Katana, which seems like overkill for such a naturally talented hunter. But hey, we’re not complaining, especially since the game’s previous patch version 1.11 didn’t introduce any new content.

New digs aside, update 1.13 also includes a lot of different balance adjustments. There are a lot of new changes: Scouts can now carry more weight, the Shuffler perk allows players to crawl more quickly, and the Sixth Sense perk’s cost has increased. Fireteam adjustments also affect weapons: The 7EN and SAWZ-50 now hold less ammo, while the D34-D sees less hip-fire spread but greater grenade airtime. In case you missed it, these weapons received new skins from update version 1.10.

Similarly, the Predator side of the game also gets several balance adjustments: The Alpha Sickle does less damage, while the War Club now has a disorienting status effect and an unblockable final attack.

All of these balance adjustments lay on top of several bug fixes, most of which are relatively minor. Check out all the details with the full Predator: Hunting Grounds patch notes for update 1.13 featured below.
