Armor Stats

This Armor is widely the best Gunner armors after Rathalos Soul U (Gunner) Set. Like its Blademaster Counterpart, it is moderately hard to create as it takes numerous Wyvern Stones, Gravios Brainstems, Firecell Stones, Gold Rajang Pelts, and Firewyvern Brainstems.

These Armor pieces all have 34 defence as a base number, but can be further increased to their maximum limit.

  • The armor gives the following skills:
  1. Capacity Up: Increases the ammo limit of all available shots by 1 and adds another charge level to bows.
  2. Reckless Abandon+1: Increase affinity by 10%.
  3. Distracted: Increases the charging time of Great Swords, Hammers and Bows.
  • To get Earplug, insert x5 HearProtection to your slots.
  • To get Reckless Abandon +3, insert one Celebrity Jewel in the cincture and one Expert Jewel on any other piece of armor. Alternatively, you can insert four Expert Jewels on any piece of armor.
  • To get Autotracker, you must use a weapon with two slots so you have a total of eight slots. Insert eight Psychic Jewels into all eight slots.
  • It is also possible to obtain Rapid Fire and Load Up with this armor set. Exchange the Dark Akantor Fangs with Barrage Piercing and insert two Speed Fire Jewels into any armor piece. Take note that you will lose Earplug and will not be able to get High Grade Earplug. You can still get Earplug if you use a weapon with at least one slot, and insert four Earplug Jewels into any armor piece.


Slots per Piece

  • Helm: 3.
  • Torso: 2.
  • Arms: 2.
  • Waist: 2.
  • Legs: 2.

MHFU Changes:

Helm: 1

Torso: 1

Arms: 1

Optimal gemming for a bowgun user would be to upgrade Reckless Abandon and gem in Earplugs, for a bow user you may want to gem in Earplugs and remove the distracted, if you have a weapon with one slot you can also gem in Reckless Abandon +2.
