What is a Special Ammo

A Unique Move Exclusive to Bowguns

These Special AMmo is a unique command exclusive to the Bogwun type weapons. Each Special ammo have different effects and uses which we will be discussing below.

Special Ammo Types and Effects

Wyvernblast (Light Bowgun)

Allows the hunter to put a flare-like object on the ground. These traps can be stepped on by monsters causing it to explode. These Wyvernblasts can also be detonated by the hunter by attacking it. The explosion also varies depending on the shot used with higher level ammo dealing more damage.

Wyvernsnipe (Heavy Bowgun)

Wyvernsnipe fires a cannon that deals a huge amount of damage and pierces the monster, this makes it deal more damage if fired in an angle that hits the monster multiple times. Each hit also explodes dealing more damage in the process.

Wyvernheart (Heavy Bowgun)

The Wyvernheart is one of the flashiest move that the HBG has. It's a move that makes the hunter fire numerous amount of shots with each shot getting stronger the longer you have been firing. The HBG has a charge meter and using the wyvernheart slowly consumes it until it depletes.
