Does this also speed up the recharge of special ammo for HBG? The sped up passive gauge part of the description is annoyingly vague

How about Charged Blade?

      Player list provides all of their equipment information. But honestly that doesn't really matter mid hunt. Don't add DPS trackers. It gets really annoying hunting with someone thats just shouting out the damage numbers all hunt
