Generally, I prefer to just kill my hunt when I play Monster Hunter 3 U. It’s just easier that way, but unfortunately you got to capture them every now and then. While playing online with random hunters I’ve noticed a few of you might not know when is the best time to put down a trap. Actually, I’ve noticed a lot of hunters just keep throwing one down….back to back to back.
In an effort to help out I want to let you know that’s the wrong way to do it. If you want to get the most out of that shock trap there are a few things you should know…..
- Wait until you see drool!
The trap last WAY longer when your monster is tired. Every monster shows signs of being tired by drooling. Try to put down a trap before it eats. This is a good technique when you just want to get some free hits in. Don’t get this confused with limping.
- Capture only works when it’s limping/near death
A lot of you already know this, but just incase.
- After you use a trap once, every time after will not last as long.
Just like any status affect, once it has been used once every monster generally builds a high resistance to it.
- Bring Bombs!
If your laying down traps don’t forget some small/large bombs. They can be game changers! Changing a 30 minute battle into a 10 minute scuffle.
That’s all I have this time. I hope it helps! Check out some more gameplay here.
