Learning the enemy is key to learning which items to bring from this category. Enemy is a flier that can see? Flash Bombs is one of your friends! Enemy can cause poison? Antidotes and Herbal Medicines are a must have. Study your foe and their attacks then bring countermeasures!

Bullets and Phials

Bullets/Coatings

The ammo you need to bring all depends on the hunt and the capabilities of your bowgun. It is suggested to bring all the highest level ammo you can unless you're confident in your skills with just using normal ammo. But in general below are the ammo and phials you'll want to bring on every hunt.

      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
