Monster Hunter secrets

Austin Kelly

I'm 460 hours into this game and I'm still learning new things.
How about having a thread about the things you find useful and that not many people do?

I'll start:
You can mine up to 99 earth crystals if you make a basarios roll on it's side and you manage to stun it while he's on the ground
You can catch bugs on zinogre's back after you make it trip (also works after you rode it)

If you eat for Felyne Bombardier (meat+wine) all large barrel bombs are considered large bombs + and almost double in damage
Useful for sets that rely a lot on bombs like stilysh bombing so you don't have to worry about running out.

Nathan Bailey
Nathan Bailey

If you see an airship, do a wave emote at it. It will signal you back, and will be the same as taking a psychoserum.

Your profile is much lower on the side swing of the GS, while swinging a large amount of tail swipes will go over your head.

Ethan Phillips

If you're trying to get those pesky raising horns a good strategy is to make it sleep, place bombs in his face, and then run behind him, about 3-4 rating sizes-distance and place a pitfall trap
The bombs will wake him up, he will enter rage, and backup into the trap, giving you a lot of time to wail on it's head

You can also chain sleep or chain para monkey dick. Chain sleep works really well.

Easton Richardson
Easton Richardson

for speed run purposes, you can enter the zone where the boss is by placing a felyne bomb by the entering, making a step forward and eating a might seed
Not only it prevents your from doing the flexing animation, saving a couple seconds, but the pink smoke from the bomb runs out exactly at the moment the might seed is not active anymore so you know when to use another

Only secrets I know is that there are little shortcuts at the start of most areas. I feel like most people know about those though

Btw what support palicoes do you guys use?
I go with full healing but I feel like they could help more.

Jace Hall

I normally use fighters but seem as unlike in 3u palicoes don't help you carve like the little shaka dudes, how often does a palicoe steal monster parts?

Kayden Thomas

not very often. about 1 extra drop every other hunt

I haven't really found any secrets playing this. That being said, I'm shit at the game, mostly play single player/story mode, and only use IG. So i don't know.

Xavier Nguyen

I've tried using CB and DB a couple of times. I can't find any success outside of IG.

I'm legitimately awful at this game.

Henry Smith

With a longsword, your vertical slashes have a very high reach and you can usually reach a flying monster's tail. Slash, roll to the side, slash, roll the other side, repeat, and you can quickly lop off tails or ground a flying monster while maintaining your evasive capabilities

Try DB or Swaxe. Please tell me you're at least in G rank. I can't bear the thought of using less than max level glaives.

I have not made it to G rank. I put the game down for quite a while, and again, mostly played single player. I started encountering the high-rank monsters though, and that's where the sledding got real rocky.

Bentley Harris

I forgot to mention for a bow.

Jack Ramirez

I never managed to do the basarios' trick, it just doesn't seem to work.

Don't know if they can be considered "secrets but:
with GL doing the X+Y thrust before shooting will direct the shell upward wich is perfect to punish flying monsters
Wyvern's Fire doesn't do much damage to sleeping monsters since it counts as multiple shots and only the first one will get the 4x bonus, let somebody else wake up the monsters or use bombs
the "Artillery" talent not only boosts shells and wyvern's fire damage, but reduces Wyvern's Fire cooldown too

Xavier Myers

If you want some online goodness, I'd be willing to clown around, get you some hunter ranks an shiiieettt. It'd be a good way to try out some weapons with the breathing room of having an extra person there to help.

Owen Foster

none of the weapons really gel with me
find…. her….
main charge blade immediately after trying out the moveset
getting a full impact-phial combo in on a monster's head for horns/on a monster's tail to get pretty close to lopping it off
feel my penis stiffen whenever the meter tells me to charge and a full set of phials is loaded

The best way is to have a friend unload a full burst slash of the charge blade straight to its face when it falls

Watch some tutorials, mate. Some weapons might resonate with you pretty well after you see them explained to you. This is the MH4 CB tutorial.

I was kinda like this with LS, but after a tutorial on CB, I moved over to it. Never looked back… for MH4U at least.

For Generations, LS is better than ever. That Adept style, man. CB got kind of eh, but not too bad. I might keep it around as a secondary weapon while going through the game.

Bow also feels REALLY good with Adept.

Dominic King

I have. My guard point timing is terrible, and I can never seem to square up to the attack.

GPs are mostly an advanced move that you do by accident, and that you pick up while playing. You ain't gonna learn it unless you play some serious long hours with that weapon and learn how to use it effectively against each monster. In fact, all of the weapons you kind of need to practice with. Some weapons are easier to get than others. In the end it'll come down to what you like, though, so if you still don't like CB, then that's fine.

If you're on a new 3DS, the nub can be a bit weird at times. Especially when looking up or down. If you get this, pretend it's a trackball and slide your thumb over it. If that's not accurate enough and you're a gunner use the Dpad when aiming.
If you're fighting a Rathian or Rathalos and it keeps fucking off, go to it's nest and wander around with a Wyvern egg in your hands. It'll come for you.
If you're playing MH4U low rank grab everything in the chests. Even if you're not a gunner, grab the ammo. Sell it later for some quick dosh. If you do this a lot you should have a fuckton of paintballs for High Rank.
Speaking of quick dosh, get Might Seeds. You can get them as early as Primal Forest. Multiply them at the Wycoon and sell them for a lot of easy dosh.
Need to slay Konchus? Grab a Switch Axe and use sword mode. It doesn't bounce off them, so you aren't left wide open after every hit.

The IG isn't the only weapon with cool aerial attacks. Dual Blade dash off a ledge and you'll do a massive aerial combo, which you can follow up with a downward swoop. SnS can attack up ledges with an X+A while climbing. Longsword can do part of the spirit combo off a ledge if it's at least white. Charge your hammer and run off a ledge, then let go of R and you'll do a powerful aerial, which you can follow up with a golf swing. Guard Advance off a ledge with the Lance and you keep blocking all the way down. Run and shoot with the Gunlance and you can jump off the ledge and shoot downwards. You can also full burst off a ledge with the Gunlance. Aerial attacks with the bowguns reload them. You can draw straight into sword mode of the Switch Axe and axe mode of the Charge Blade with an R+X+A while in the air. You can activate Demon Mode while moving towards a monster by doing this with the Dual Blades.
Not enough aerial action for you? Roll at a climbable wall and press A and you grab it. You can do this with your weapon drawn as well. In other words you can rebound off a wall and aerial attack the monster easily. If you're a Switch Axe main you'll love this, because of the fuckton of range you can get from it. Get good enough at this and you pretty much have Aerial mode from MHX.

And for a question: How the fuck do I deal with Black Gravios's sweeping blast while HBGing? I don't have enough time to put it away and rolling doesn't let me roll far enough.

Gavin Cook

Use felvine bombs before using healing items to avoid attacks and cut out the flex.
Zinogre has a pin move that he uses when exhausted.
Basarios can get stuck flying into canopys on GQ maps meaning that they fly forever if they get stuck.
Seregios is flying during his pin attack stand in the centre of his half circle sweep and throw a flash.
Bounce bomb+ have a slight homing ability and can be used on flying targets above you. (FUCKING REMOBRAS)
Yian Kut Ku is the most dangerous 140 monster in the game.
If you get launched by another hunter you are invincible until you land and get up. If you attack in mid air you lose this invincibility.
Jho+ another monster GQ's is a great way to get relic weapons from low tier reward wyverns like YKK, Basarios and Velocidrome.

Teostra is a dick.
1:40 after enrage (he roars and gets blast powder aura) he will go supernova.
Mounting resets the timer.
Sleep from weapons resets the timer.
KO resets the timer.
The timer continues long after Teostra goes to sleep in his rest area.

Colton Russell

the first hit on a sleeping monster does tons of damage
if you're bombing it, place the large bombs around its head, place the small bombs far enough away so it won't hit the monster, but will hit the large bombs.

Nathan Barnes
Nathan Barnes

Also
when you get knocked down to the ground, don't mash to get up right away. If you do, very often you'll get hit by a follow up attack. You're invincible while on the ground.

Hudson Campbell

Host a 140 YKK and watch the lulz, that mini Garuga will give you a hell of a fight if you don't lock it fuck down.
Tail swipe does nearly half your HP
Chains the tailswipe into everything.
that 0 to 70 mph run that shits on your HP because fuck your 800 defense.
OHKO flying attack if under 70% HP, which you will be nearly 100% of the time.
Konchus everywhere.
Frenzied YKK? I hope you brought traps.

The small size of YKK means everyone is in each others space topped off with that fucking tail attack it's a clusterfuck of tripping, mega potion chugging and getting railed by YKK launched konchus when healing.

I've had double carts from randoms and my self due that flying / charge attack before even getting to the apex Deviljho.

Apex Rajang
GS GS GS GS
Grab weakness exploit if ya can cram it on yer set.
Roll, run, panic dive and crit draw to victory.
Small HP and he's a massive walking weakpoint, not really gonna screw you unless the terrain is sloped like in area 4 of Ancestral Steppe.

A lvl140 Kut ku is a surprise for every hunter.

Healing's always a good fallback. Not very interesting but always pretty useful useful. A full 5 is great.
Defense sucks. They take way too much heat from monsters. Yes, that's their entire purpose, to draw aggro, but even with their defense focus and blocking, they can't take many hits, so you end up with more time going one-on-one against the monster because your cats are always dead.
Offense is good. I guess. They look like they do stuff. Just dress one of your cats up as Dante and let him loose, it's fine.
Stealing is kind of weak. Like says, they steal one extra drop per hunt. Sometimes more, but not often. They also have stealth so they're always around, you could try mixing Steal and Heal together to always have that Health Horn (S).
Bomb cats are fucking insane. They will fuck up everything everywhere forever, especially you. That said, they're the most fun to be around. Be ready to be tossed around and to really cut loose if you've got a sleep weapon or a bunch of traps. And also to go one-on-one often, because your cats just exploded. Allahu ackbar.
Support cats are okay, but if you run a full 5, you sometimes get this awkward situation where your cats lay two shock traps next to each other. It's a waste. But the fact that they bring a trap is awesome. I would have liked to mix Support and Bomb, but not enough slots.
Jump cats are amazing and awful. You can signal them to set up, which is nice, and they become invincible while they're in position to throw you. They're tons of fun if you find joy in wrastlin' monsters to the floor. But sometimes they set up far away from the monster, or the fight naturally pulls you away from that part of the map, so half the time, they're not in position to help you.

Dylan Smith
Dylan Smith

I'm having a nice time with 2 heal, 2 supporto so my cat randomly heals me and sometimes places that nice shock Trap
I main paralizing hammer so it's Trap>stun>paralysis and so half of the HP of the boss is done for, plus any horn the thing could have
The fifth companion is a bombardier that is my second palico, he has a helmet with 'small mons first' so he clears out the zone pretty nice when I fight in a crowded place. And even tho he sometimes pisses me off by blowing me away, you're immortal while hit by the bombs so it's w/e and sometimes it even saved my ass.
Not to count bombs actually DO damage on the boss unlike regular cats

PSP is a souped-up PS1, 3DS is a bit souped-down Gamecube

How to use the bow:
Start charge
Move where you want to shoot
Look at the monster
Let go of R
And if you want to aim
Press X to look, the crosshair thing should be lined up horizontally
Look up or down
Let go of R

In other words let your character's positioning define the horizontal axis, don't aim left and right manually. It's faster and you don't have to fiddle with the nub as much.

Bombing cats
Don't use them if you Greatsword a lot. I've lost count of the amount of times I'll charge a level 3 for them to blow me up and waste it.
Outside of that they're amazing. I use them when I go gunning.

Christian Murphy
Christian Murphy

I actually avoid bombing cats since I usually do Switch Axe, longsword, and charge blade runs. Can't count how many times those bombs knock me off, It also happens when I decide to do dual blade hunts.

also, I can't kill a fucking gore magala without dual blades, I did an expedition run on him with the zinogre charge blade and full zinogre armor and that fucker ran away I felt so defeated even though I actually manges to hunt him with the chainsaw dual blades and wearing the velicoprey armor.

I haven't gone far yet, I'm at the yian garuga urgent but I haven't tried it yet since I left to work to a different state 2 weeks ago and left my 3ds charger there and have yet to go out to buy a new one.

But I know the ass raping I might be heading for, fuck, I hate fighting yian kut ku I can only imagine how this will go.

Jaxon Harris
Jaxon Harris

Gore Magala is really annoying unless you have a fast weapon. It can't reach around it's hind legs, so SnS or DB are perfect. Just get up in it's crotch like a STD with the Frenzy and you're good to go.
As for Yian Garuga it's either the most fun or least fun monster you'll fight. I don't want to spoil it much, but bring a lot of healing items and antidotes.

Dylan Perry
Dylan Perry

You don't know mad until you've tried bombing cats while using a charge blade. I can't get a sword mode ultra burst off. But it's plenty of fun regardless.

If you're going to hunt a magala with the CB, you need to be able to combo into transformations, because he will not give you a lot of time. You're not gonna be able to blow your red phial ultra load on him until you get a knockdown, but at least you'll always have the phials to stay in that mode. Stick to the more mobile SnS mode, and if you've got red phials going, feel free to block since you can stand your ground. Stick close, go for the legs or forearms, and try to use the upward shield thrust after a leaping slash. Leaping slash is great for keeping up with the quick little bugger, and that shield thrust is an elemental attack, and I think lightning element is good against Gore. It's also a way to combo into a transformation attack, so if you think the time is right, you can press R to spend a phial and go into axe mode for a quick hit or two, then transform back out to SnS mode. If you have an Impact Phial type, he's not too hard to stun with CB, as long as you don't get greedy and have a bit of experience with the guard points on transformation swings. But don't do it without red phials, you're gonna eat a lot of block stun. He's a pretty fun fight because he invites you to go nuts with the Frenzy virus, but I can understand why hunters with slower weapons feel differently about him.

Asher Smith

Bombing cats are looots of fun, but they're detrimental if you're melee. If you're gunner, grab a bomber and go to town.

Jeremiah Mitchell

Charge blade is pretty great too but I only have Portable 3rd and my friend owns 4U so gotta work with something similar outside of mounting monsters

Sebastian Reyes
Sebastian Reyes

I have never tried gunner in this game, I love their armor but I always though that the 3ds controls might be a bit to much to shoot with. I always wanted to go heavy bowgun because the guns look cool as fuck/

I can kill him with the chargeblade and what not with some patience if I did the normal missions but this but expeditions is where it really counts and I just couldn't do it, I was aggressive most of the time while he was not in rage mode but still it wasn't enough, I could connect enough, he was just too fast, dual blades will be my choice of weapon if I go at him again.

Jace Jones

Gog is in the list. I've done it online tons of times.

Bow, my friend. Bow is the best ranged weapon to get into if you want to start, and most of the time you don't actually need to aim, just face the monster. You can aim with bow the easiest too.

Bow in MHgen is fantastic too with the adept style

Luis Jenkins

I've heard that MHO gave Kut-Ku new animations. No idea if they're different attacks, but at least it isn't so predictable.
I'd like Capcom to go over all the old monsters and update their moveset, so that half the cast doesn't just shuffle in your direction and go for the exact same 2x180 tail sweep, or sideways bite. Then again MH is more of a budget franchise, so that'll never happen.
As long as Cephadrome exists the Kut-crew are far from the worst monsters in the game

Connor Evans
Connor Evans

Cephadrome is fucking retarded, but at least it looks like it's trying to kill you. The fucking chickens just seem to fucked waddle around and bump into you 9/10. Then the tail sweep happens and then its all "fuck you"

The fucking chickens just seem to fucked waddle around and bump into you
This and this: . The Raths are the fucking worst monsters in any MH game. Most of their attacks are just them walking across the room, which send you flying and do shitloads of damage for no reason. To put that into perspective, Gogmazios is the size of a small building and his animations don't knock you around at all. Also, their attacks are fast and will almost always stun you. Go ahead and combine that with the homing attack from way, way up in the sky which is really just a check to see if you can do the Superman dive correctly. The only other boss that has an attack like that is Dalamadur, and he's a novelty gimmick boss, also the size of a building, and not a staple of the series. Oh, and their hovering animation will slide along with you if you move so their next attack will hit you. They don't fly near you or glide near you, they lock into a position near you and won't move until they attack. This isn't a case of git gud, they're not hard, just cheap gay bullshit that isn't fun to fight.

MH Freedom Unite and Portable 3rd are on PSP, and apparently PPSSPP is really good. MH Tri is on the Wii, but I have no idea how it emulates.
MH3U and MH4U, and eventually MHGen, are on 3DS. You'll have to wait for Citra.

There's also MH Online, and MH Frontier, which are F2P PC games. MHO is in the Cryengine, and looks nice. MHF is crazy, it's got tonfas and embed related skip to 1:40. Both are Chinese/Japanese only, but there's bound to be a way to get in.

Elijah Perez

I think ill go with the HBG, i tried playing with the bow for about 20 or so hours, but it just took forever to kill anything. Im really liking the gunner class in mh though.

Bow is pretty great if you are abusing the monsters elemental weakness and the coatings.
Each shot fires multiple arrows which does the damage stat the bow has.

Tyler Thomas
Tyler Thomas

not pointing out the sharpness bonus of S&S
Come on, now.

Luis Perry
Luis Perry

HBG is super strong with critical distance + shot types.

Bow's power mostly comes from using critical distance and comboing charged/power shots with status/elemental stuff.

Different types of bows too. Like pierce bows for big monsters/far range, and spread bows for big monsters/short range, and multishot bows for any monster/mid range.

Landon Johnson
Landon Johnson

You wanna know something. I want to punch one of these mother fucking monsters in their god damn smug anime girl faces. And that got me thinking, where are the fist weapons? Monster Hunter is already great, but being able to punch a hole through a Magala or a Stelas Queen would put the whole series into the end zone for me.

Angel Green
Angel Green

Fist weapons are long overdue.

I also think they could take the tonfa weapons from Frontier and tone them down a lot. And have powered up attacks that do something like this, with pistons

Julian Baker

While there aren't a weapon class dedicated to punching things, there are a few of Dual Blades that are modeled after fist weapons, pics related being the two that first came to mind.

Are ranged weapons any good? Seems like it would take forever to kill something.

Oliver Phillips
Oliver Phillips

Ranged weapons have a mechanic called Critical Distance. It's the optimal distance away from a monster where each of your shots do over 100% damage.

Couple that with the ability to equip different types of ammo (coatings in the case of bows), that do more damage, or lower your critical distance range, or give status effects such as sleep, poison or paralysis and you have a versatile, powerful weapon that can keep up with most melee weapons.

Brody Reed
Brody Reed

Ranged weapons are great as long as you use the right ammo, aim at the proper hitzones, and know critical distance. Don't be like baguettes online using the HBG and firing at the edge of the map doing jack shit.

Joseph Myers
Joseph Myers

How do you know what the critical distance is?

Chase Moore
Chase Moore

You get a brighter flash when the attack lands and the screen shakes a little.

Gabriel Wright

What about with bow?

Carter Bell
Carter Bell

It's the same. Though range varies depending on the bow type.

Brayden James
Brayden James

So why do you think gunlance is so little used?
I can cut pretty much any tail with it, even Yan Garuga's and I don't even need to ground the boss to do it.
And with the bullets I can easily break any sturdy monster part that would otherwise bounce off my sharpness.

Tyler Baker
Tyler Baker

Same thing. There are different types of bows with different ranges.

Pierce has the longest range, which fires single arrows that go through enemies bodies, hitting multiple times. So it's really only good for big enemies.

Spread has a really short range, but fires multiple arrows at once in a fan shape, so it's only good for bigger monsters at short range.

And then Rapid, which is multiple arrows in a straight line. Medium range and good for pretty much any monster.

For all ranged weapons, the screen shakes and you get a bright flash where the projectiles hit. That's how you know you're at critical distance.

Oliver Fisher
Oliver Fisher

Is this in mhp3rd or is it a newer mechanic?

Cameron Jones
Cameron Jones

I do believe Critical Distance was in P3rd

Hunter Howard
Hunter Howard

I don't know friend, I've recently adopted it myself (Only 50 hunts so far), and I'm finding it very fun. Spent some time and got the S.Rath, Kush, and S.Zinogre ones so I can sample each and found myself finding a new favorite weapon along the way. Displaces SnS in my trifecta, under Hammer and SA.

I think people avoid it since it seems pretty shitty and it's hard to gauge the damage you do with the shells, not to mention your combos feel really weaksauce in comparison to normal lance, let alone any other types of weaponry, it is admittedly very niche like the Hunting Horn, but that's just fine by me, though I make no claims to skill in that either.

Julian Russell

Gunlance is crazy fun. I usually get to G rank and forge/upgrade a good one just to dick around with it, but I can't seem to bring myself to focus on it. I just click more with other weapons.

Slime in general was ridiculous when they first introduced it. I'm surprised I didn't run into many play with a kelbi bow or grongigas back in 3U.

Brandon Price
Brandon Price

Grongigas just had one of the highest attack powers, you didn't get much slime unless you really went for it.

But yeah slime was stupidly overpowered in general.
4x kelbi bow could perma-stagger almost anything because of slimesplosions

Jose Evans

I might, I'm using the rare 6 Seregios hammer but the narga hammer looks a little better because it has way more affinity. The downside to it though is that it has less white sharpness and doesn't have that sharpen evade quirk. Make sure to have Super Crit to make the most of it.

James Lopez
James Lopez

Now fight Narga using Bushido.

Shit feels really good especially with weapons that Bushido works well with (like Longsword and Bow).

Samuel Phillips
Samuel Phillips

I remember as a beginner in Freedom Unite I used the longsword a lot, but when i got to high rank I ended up loving the greatsword so much more since by then I could predict where a monster would move and was awesome with it.

I'd recommend picking up something easier to learn like the longsword or greatsword, instead of CB or DB which can be tricky to learn.

Hammer is pretty easy to learn as well - use the lvl1 charge to close the distance and just keep triple pounding everything until it dies.

SA axe form D in utility.
Sword form C in utility.
Utility being how well a weapon can cut tails and break parts
If a switch axe user has not cut the tail off a monster within 5 minutes he's a shit.
Unique uses
Phials for every occasion.
How well it fits on a team.
Again. Does your team need damage?
Para?
Sleep?
Exhaust?
SA has all of those, whilst avoiding tripping teammates if you're not a tard flailing around spamming A
Implying SA utility isn't C/B or B/A the only thing it's missing is the ability to buff teammates.
B agility in axe form
C agility in sword form
Are you serious nigger? Put evade extender on and you're dancing around that fucking monster without ever having to put your weapon away.
Not to mention sword form has natural minds eye so you're never stuck in the bouncing attack animation and can evade out of pretty much every attack.
Shit chart tbh.

Eli King

I've used bows since Freedom Unite, and bushido has to be the best thing to happen to this game.

For bows I agree. I didn't really like it with any of the melee weapons unless I was fighting narga. I like striker or guild on most melee weapons.

Mason Rogers
Mason Rogers

Are you serious nigger? Put evade extender on and you're dancing around that fucking monster without ever having to put your weapon away.

The chart is based on its natural mobility. Not what you get from a skill. And IIRC power is the only worthwhile phial for the SA, but that chart is based on tri/3u so it was probably different then.

The problem with slime in 4u wasn't even that slime was necessarily busted, it's that the developers tried to pretend slime wasn't a status effect.

If the kelbi bow had sleep or paralysis as native, non-coating elements instead it would have been just as busted. And other slime weapons had the same/higher raw than other weapons and also had slime, unlike sleep and paralysis weapons which are always behind the curve in attack/sharpness.

lao-shan lung's fight
Just like the other big monster fights, it was cool for like 10 minutes. After that it was incredibly boring and a pain to get through any other time. Especially for Gog, because people have a habit of dying in the most ridiculous ways to him for some reason.

Ceadeus was the only "good" one, and even that was ruined by the stupid-ass pre-fight section where it ignores you on it's way to the actual arena. I legitimately enjoyed the Jhen Mohran hunt too, but it's stupidly rigid and linear and has zero re-playability.

GOAT theme though, holy shit. The soundtrack in Tri/3G hasn't been matched. 4th gen's music has been really disappointing for me again and again. There are a few mediocre tunes in MHX, but nothing is really great.

Samuel Gomez
Samuel Gomez

Dalamadur, Jhen/Dah'ren Mohran and the Ceadus would like a word. Ceadus is only fun in the final section, but Goldbeard skips right to it anyway.

I just like something that FEELS like an ancient beat. One of my favourite memories in 4U will be the look on my friend's faces when they first saw how big the Dalamadur actually was.

John Parker
John Parker

No it's not about pure sexualization. Gaijinhunter is an SJW. It's about "dimorphism", which is just one more form of pig white cis male misogyny. Any differences between the male and female of any kind are fuel for them to virtue signal.

look at me, I'm being disgusted by boob-plate, so progressive

Anyways the point is these people will never ever not ever in a million years be satisfied by anything, and nobody should ever listen to them or try to satisfy them because it's a fruitless folly.

Dalamadur
Can only fight him with high rank gear meaning the giant fire laser will oneshot you no matter what, especially when it's your first fight with him and you are not really sure what to do to avoid him
Face attack also oneshots you
Git gud eventually at dodging his shirt
When I diveroll through the laser there is often that friend that was either stuck doing something, or just didn't see it coming that gets hit and you lose one of your tries
Chest makes you lose HP when the boss is enraged like Teostra's powder
Homing comets
3000 HP making the fight last longer so you end up worn out and making mistakes
Dalamadur was a mistake.

Jhen/Dahren
They are piss easy and the only thing making them hard is when they do retarded damage to you and the ship.

Bosses with huge HP were never the point of the game, and that's why they are never good.

Shattered Omens can only be obtained from mining meteors that crash to the ground and stick

The easiest one I ever played was Tri.

But I'd say the best monster hunter games are either MHFU and MH4U. So in this case, 4U is probably your boy.

Outside of Tri, they are all pretty much the same in difficulty. So I wouldn't be worried about that.

to add to my previous post if you decide to get MH3U it's offline only on the 3DS and I imagine the online services for the Wii U version are going to be cancelled soon, no official word from Capcom about it yet, but it's been a long ride and the rather low player count leads me to believe so.

Get MH4U or Generations.

Learn how damage calculation works. Obtuse blade does nothing to sharpness damage modifiers. Green is still 1.05x damage, yellow is still 1.00x damage, orange is still 0.75x damage.

The only thing Obtuse Blade does is add a flat +15, +25, and +30 damage after the modifier calculation. You have to do the calculations yourself if you want to see whether or not the weapon you chose actually benefits from it or not.

Don't forget that MH3U on the WiiU still ran fucking worse than the 3DS version. I love Monster Hunter, but Capcom can't code for shit and they're Bethesda tier when it comes to re-using engines and assets. The game rides solely on years of polish and a knockout homerun formula that they nailed in 2nd gen and thankfully haven't had the hubris and arrogance to alter.

Would be lovely on the Vita though. Maybe if someone at Sony commits seppuku they'll let Vita have a 6 year old port of Portable 3rd.

If you still care, here's how you do the titlekey thing.

2: Go to the titlekey section
3: Run titlekey decrypt (emunand unless you use a9lh then you'd use sysnand)
4: After it's done, run Titlekey Encrypt (File), and have it do it's thing.
After that, upload it and everyone else can download it through CDN-FX far away from you.

Do you think it'd be possible to stack 4 damage boosting buffs from each item/skill?

Thomas Fisher

Food, Felyne, Might Pill, Demondrug.
Yes.

Charles Reyes
Charles Reyes

you can't use items as a felyne. You get infinite Gathering items and infinite stamina.
You get skills which you have set amount of slots for which range from "demon horn" to the 3 actually useful skills.

You can't might pill as a felyne.

Camden Thompson
Camden Thompson

Sweet, guess I am going for a damage boosting felyne build.

Brandon Gomez
Brandon Gomez

You can't demondrug either, i'm talking about if one of your friends is playing felyne or the AI decides to use it.

Kayden Cook
Kayden Cook

Don't do that, you don't have enough forte meter.
There's only 1 actually good felyne build unfortunately.

There's a few decent fuck around builds, but only one actually viable one.

Demondrug I just assumed you were talking about the passives.

Jonathan Jones
Jonathan Jones

3 damage boosting and a healing skill?

If damage boosting is kinda terrible with felynes, whats the actual good build and why?

Dylan Hughes
Dylan Hughes

Yeah, no demondrug or might pills as a Felyne, because they can't use item.s

They can use demon horns though, can't they? I'm sure they have plenty of attack buffing options and abilities to use.

Aiden Ramirez
Aiden Ramirez

I read the skills they can use is Demon horn, rage, Weapon boost and I think a dance to boost damage.

Noah Lee
Noah Lee

There's also food buffs.
Never forget food buffs

Jonathan Clark
Jonathan Clark

Nope demon horns are a skill, they can use them for forte meter. but it's so much better spent elsewhere.

Problem is all of those consume meter.
Best and only build for felynes is Damage Boomerang.
You get Piercing boomerang, huge boomerang, Rage, and then stack EVERY DAMAGE PASSIVE. and aim for headshots.
Even then the monsters need to behave super nicely

Ryder Wood
Ryder Wood

Well I guess I could always stack defense and just taunt monsters and just throw out bombs for damage or something.

Jaxson Jackson
Jaxson Jackson

Nope. Bombs do way less than they need to, also you're screwing your melee over like that.

There's one build that sort of works that's bomb boost wrath of meow. But the problem there is it costs 4 forte meter and you can't keep it up for it to work out.

Joseph Nelson
Joseph Nelson

I don't know anything about forte meter.
So I just get a boomerang, buff with skills and with food?

Elijah Sanchez
Elijah Sanchez

Forte meter is how you use basically anything that's not a basic attack.
You build it by hitting things, mining, getting hit. 4 is the most expensive skill IIRC, it may be 5 though I honestly forget.

But yeah,you buff with piercing boomerang (costs 1) and Huge boomerang (costs 1) and then just hit him in the noggin with boomerangs.
The problem is without piercing you build meter super slow and you build it just fast enough to not have much to spare

Jace Mitchell
Jace Mitchell

is the world really this small or can i unlock different areas? This isn't much like hunting tbh

Cooper Thomas
Cooper Thomas

So the idea is to spam the shit out of boomerangs with boosts, then melee em when you run out of meter?

Jonathan Perry

Boomerang is a basic attack, piercing and huge are just buffs to the boomerangs

So is felyne viable for multi?

Gabriel Perry
Gabriel Perry

I think felynes seem to shine best in multi.
Soloing how ever I would say they'd struggle in combat.

Jason Gray
Jason Gray

So is felyne viable for multi?
Not really, they really lack damage unless they get only headshots.
The near immortal thing is weird, they have 3 free carts that get refilled if they rest I.E to cart once as a felyn you have to die 4 times. The problem is they have much less defense and a worse roll so they have a higher potential to get combo'd to death.

Christopher Cox
Christopher Cox

Buff/Healslut who tries to keep small niggas off you is viable. Cats cannot take potions, but they do have 2 extra lives before carting, and you can restore these by sleeping in the camp.
So yes, it is kind of viable multiplayer.

Zachary Murphy
Zachary Murphy

What are your reasons to pirate, guys?

Carson Nelson
Carson Nelson

I buy japanese copies of video games because that actually supports the developer, not the translators.
I pirate because I don't understand the language enough to know if I'll like games before I buy them, and you can't resell japanese copies easily.
I have a legitimate Japanese copy of the game, but I still use the pirated one because it's easier for me.
But yes goy, I'm just a child who pirates because I have no sheckels.

They would probably have to bring back the Sandy Plains if Barroth was back because it has the mud he needed to use. Alongside the Sandy Plains I really wished that they brought back the Flooded Forest because it had a very nice atmosphere with sky and flora, it felt more like a jungle then the Primal Forest. However it could be weird without the water.

Also I wished Gobul came back too. It was a very interesting monster and we need more fish. Not sure how it can be adapted for land though.

This is the kind of shit that makes me immediately lose any and all faith in the veracity of the rest of the translation. Here you have an English word in a Japanese game. It's literally キラビートル, KIRA BETARU. KILLER BEETLE.

Shiny Beetle

Now you're not even translating. You're just fucking changing shit for the sake of changing it.

On the whole I think the 4th gen has really underwhelming music. Tri/3G really blew it out of the water kek. Something is very wrong with the entire soundstage in the 4th gen games. Whatever system they used to record the music is so bass anemic. None of the tracks have any floor to them, no powerful tribal savage rhythms getting your blood flowing. A few of MHX's new tracks are better, but even when they use interesting rhythm sections and strange instruments you can only really hear it if you stop and try to focus on it. That's not music to hunt to.

Give me an example of 3rd gen music

Whenever someone else gets off their asses and does it
The thing is that anybody else that would leak it doesn't have the game and anyone else that does have it won't do it "out of respect for Capcom".
Oh so you're really a faggot? Do you actually care about the profit gained from the English version?

Xavier Howard

キラー is murderer you idiot.

Isaiah Torres
Isaiah Torres

Fuck, I didn't even think of that and it should have been obvious. Scratching that off the list then.

I'm still not amused with perpetuating animosity toward the people who tell you to play the game better though.

Elijah Turner
Elijah Turner

Good thing it's キラ in the Japanese version then!

Anything from Gen 2 or behind was very rigidly translated. They probably originally thought it was "Killer" at first, but then when they went back to retranslated stuff they asked the original devs and they explained that it was supposed to be "Shiny".

Carson Barnes
Carson Barnes

And here's my personal favorite area theme. That fucking percussion section just drives you forward. Plus 3rd gen gave us pure gems like Brachydios' theme.

That would take too much effort for American localizers.

Jack Davis

The killer beetle has an ingame description doesn't it? Why not look at that for context? What is it in the japanese release anyways?

Caleb Powell
Caleb Powell

Confirmed for having NEVER read their Translation Blogs. They had a bunch of them before MH4U's release and they've done a few for Generations.

The original devs work VERY closely with the translators.

Joshua Richardson

キラビートル。

It's a little hard to read the description; my moonrunes aren't perfect as it is, but honestly the text for MHX is fucking checkerboards at its resolution.

Caleb Wood
Caleb Wood

"Killer Beetle" would be written キラービートル.

Colton Bell
Colton Bell

Exactly.

So, yes, it's a change - but it's correcting a mistranslation that's been around a while, not just changing something for the sake of changing it.

Leo Wood
Leo Wood

Yeah, looking at the fan translated description it sounds like sparkling beetle would make sense.
"An insect with dazzling wings. It's hard shell is often used as an abrasive."

Carson Hughes
Carson Hughes

complex kanji on 3DS resolution

RIP, decoration list. Anyways I just checked it out.

Beetle with a heard shell and sparkling beauty. Can be used to polish somethingsomething.

I still don't fucking trust those fuckers.

Colton Ross
Colton Ross

anyways leak when?

Eli Phillips
Eli Phillips

Whenever someone else does it. You guys already have MHX so why is it such a priority I leak this?

Gabriel Gutierrez
Gabriel Gutierrez

I want to play with you user…

Ryan Lopez
Ryan Lopez

True, though I never bothered with setting up CFW since most of the 3ds' library didn't interest me and going through the trouble seemed like wasted effort at the time.

Carter Parker

Then make an MHX room.

John Rivera

It's literally just bb3693. Nobody else wants it.

Michael Torres

nobody else wants it
tell that to the 4 other faggots that wanted it

Eli Ross

4 other faggots
all of the replies are saying how shitty the memes look
except for bb3693 begging for a CIA

Bentley Anderson

Fuck off, I want it too. I don't want goddamn moon runes anymore

Just give up the damn title key you jew.

Blake Smith

I doubt that anyone will deliver a file until the game drops next week.
That said; is it possible to drop the .3ds file (when it's uploaded) and put it on a sky3ds+? I got one as a gift from a friend and have been using it to play all my 3DS games but I haven't yet tried a game with online functionality to see if it works. I'd rather not go through the hassle of installing CFW if I don't have to.

Jack Carter
Jack Carter

.3ds files have headers and shit.
Install CFW because online is a chore on .3ds files.

Caleb Young
Caleb Young

Just why not leak it? You have the opportunity to do it 8 days early so just why not do it now? You can share it here and if you want bring it over somewhere like Nintendo 3DISO.

Actually I have a serious question for you. If you do leak the game can we make lobbys and shit online or is it unlocked until launch day? We can have an early "release" party together if that's possible.

Noah Walker
Noah Walker

I played online with some Capcom dudes earlier, servers are up (except DLC server).

I actually had a little issue where I forgot to update my Luma on the system I had the review code on, so I had to update it really fast before I could play. That was pretty damn close to them finding out I use CFW on my systems.

Leo Walker
Leo Walker

So I'm guessing we'll be fucked if we make lobbys?

Christian Gray
Christian Gray

I'm fine playing with other reviewers, but I'm not taking any chances with you fuckers.

Carter Scott
Carter Scott

I doubt they'll know it's you if we make some lobbys. Can they track you?

Colton Nelson
Colton Nelson

Let's see…

They know where I live.
They know my name.
They know who I write for.
They know I'm at least familiar with CFW since while we were playing one of the guys said it was kinda lonely with only so many people online, and I quipped that it would be worse if there was a ton right now since that would mean the game had leaked online for pirates. (We talked about what happened with 7th Dragon: Code VFD here)
Yuri (community manager) personally knows my face, and has met me IRL.

…and then they know my IP, and my hunter for MHG.

I'd say, even with the fact that Holla Forums doesn't share IPs, I wouldn't want to risk it.

Dominic Howard
Dominic Howard

literally retarded.

Hunter Clark
Hunter Clark

Alright I understand the trust now. But why do you change your mind when you almost attempted making a CIA and leaking it and you said you wouldn't do it because "it takes too long" instead of talking about the trust?

Aiden Harris

I should mention they also have my phone number too.

That doesn't explain why you pussied out user

Why would you tease innocent anons

Nolan Robinson

Why did you lie then? Are you lying again? Will we know the true answer?

Hunter Campbell

Because I don't know.

Camden Gomez

But leaking is what the cool kids do user! Not sure if IPs are shared here but if not then you could be safe or you can maybe do it in a remote location? It might be possible. I bet the guy who leaked the English translation of Kirby Planet Robobot months early had close relations to HAL.

Jeremiah Hernandez
Jeremiah Hernandez

The English translation was just already in the Kirby game.

Nintendo has been doing that for a while now.

Aaron Hall
Aaron Hall

So can 8-4 leave yet

Asher Rivera
Asher Rivera

let me guess, you're not going to leak either?

Jack Garcia
Jack Garcia

Really? When I saw other people play the game they had the Jap language.
Also this is another reason I want it leaked, to see how much shit they changed. I wonder if they removed that weebshit ending video.

Alexander Rodriguez
Alexander Rodriguez

My friend browses cuckchan and he sent me that. If I had it I would've leaked it

Hudson Long

At least that can make sense without someone understanding the meme.

Henry Watson

you needed to play the JPN game on an english console in order for it to be english, so it's something literally only for the pirates.

Where's your proof? Is there any comfy anti-Socjus MH Youtuber?

By the way, don't trust this faggot you retarded fucks, these pics are stolen from /mhg/ from cuckchan.

Now that i think about it, can we get a timestamp next to your 3DS with the review copy?

John King

Proper SnS combos give the player some of the best trip immunity in the game.

Improper SnS combos won't protect the player from shit and will send his teammates flying.

Jaxson Peterson
Jaxson Peterson

I will never get over the bullshit that is not adding Tigrex, Akantor, and Ukanlos to 3U. I bet it's a tactic to keep you buying the games since there isn't a "perfect" Monster Hunter game.
