I almost have 200hrs in Hunt Showdown.
Most of this time, I had issues with overall “feel” of the game. Aiming and feel never felt right while playing. Some sort of “latency” was always there, didn’t matter what I try. Even with FPS well above 90+ aiming always felt like game is running at low fps. Doesn’t matter which preset, driver, driver setting I have tried, Frametime was always high than any other game, well above 30.

Obviously these settings are for freesync compatible display.
With these settings, game felt like IT SHOULD for the first time for me: when you look around in-game, you will immediately realize how smooth it is. Like playing counter strike. Snappy, like a shooter should feel in the first place.
Turning VSync always On with Anti-Lag enabled might give similar results on standard, locked refresh rate panels. If you test and get any good results drop a comment.
Oddly, these settings didn’t turn V-Sync “on” all time for me. FPS goes beyond, something still off with that; for instance, my average framerate Is not 150ish, but 70 maybe. I think this is about how rendering works in Hunt. But nwm.
What is important here is Frametime. That is accurate. As you can see, in radeon driver screenie I took it says 6ms which is incredible. I used to see 30-40 in driver tab all the time and >20 in MSI Afterburner overlay in-game. And game always felt like running on 20 Fps didn’t matter even if it was well above 100.
Please share your findings in comments, this method might work in non-freesync panels as well. Turn on the V-sync and anti-lag and test it. I hope it works, because reducing frametime makes gameplay fluid as it should.
