In Monster Hunter: World, there is “special equipment” that have special effects, and when used as items can trigger extraordinary effects. There is a cooldown period for reuse.
Conceals you from enemy view temporarily. The effect expires if you perform an attack or take damage.
Eliminates damage reactions, prevents wind effects, protects your hearing, and grants tremor resistance. You also receive less damage from attacks.
—A hunter reloads his bowgun and moves in to attack without fear of the Pukei-Pukei’s tongue attack.
Prompts monsters to target you more often and makes them easier to lure. The effect expires if you are attacked.
—Lure the monster to where you want it, such as to a wider area or trap, and hunt it in more favorable conditions.
Increases jump airtime and grants the power to ride strong winds. Also makes it easier to mount monsters.
—By using the Glider Mantle, you can move quickly from specific places where strong winds blow upward to a place in the sky.
Monster Hunter: World is due out worldwide for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 26. In Japan, it will only be released for PlayStation 4. A PC version is due out at a later date.
