Which Heavy Bowgun Ammos are good?

Welcome to our guide on all of the damage ammo types for heavy bowgun in Monster Hunter World. We analyze each one and explain what makes each good or bad. That means, spread ammo, cluster ammo, normal ammo, pierce ammo, slicing ammo, wyvern ammo, and elemental ammo.

Heavy Bowgun is the most interesting weapon in MHW from a mathematical analysis perspective. Its the only weapon in the game where the animation times for your DPS change depending on your build and weapon choice.

Calculating these was actually how I(Jinx) got started doing Math in MHW. You could call it our Origin story in a way XD

Update 6.0 and Gunner Set Changes

Reuploaded, sorry I don’t know what happened before.
TL;DR no significant changes were made, just slightly better or more consistent values across the board.

I did not play with elemental ammo, so theres still that to look forward to I suppose.

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!

Your combo’s animation time is tied to your build on bowguns, this makes calculating optimal damage for them trickier than other weapons in Monster Hunter World. Which is very fun for me(Jinx) because I love spreadsheets, but this video will help out everyone else who doesn’t.

Special thanks to Boardwalk Hotel/Tom (boardwalk hotel#0001) for discussing all the math on spareshot with me mooooonths ago!
