Jinx’s Musings: How does Spareshot Affect DPS in MHW?

Welcome to our guide on how Spareshot Affects DPS in MHW. The Xeno Gamma Armor has made spareshot META on literally every bowgun in the game now. And after this video you will understand how it affects your damage!

Monster Hunter Math: Highest DPS Builds

Welcome to guide on how to make the highest damage builds in Monster Hunter World. This is the first in my Monster Hunter Math Series and will explain the importance of EFR or Effective Raw, which is what you look at when determining which build does the highest damage.

It is what speedrunners and optimizers like me look for when making builds. Out side of elemental weapons like bows and dual blades, but I will have a video in the near future on that topic.
