PostSubject: Heavy Bowgunning Shen Gaoren - Advice Needed   Thu Oct 04, 2012 8:03 am

I'm going through a Heavy Bowgun only playthrough of MHFU, right now the strongest thing I've slayed is a Kirin but it shouldn't take me too long to get to the shen (For the Chief).
Anyways, I need advice on what shots to use, what armour and heavy bowgun to get and if I should focus on collapsing its legs or aiming at its body to finish it off quick.
Note that this is about the Low rank Shen in the village, so no High rank stuff :P

I recently hunted a Shen with a Heavy Bowgun myself and I must say that he's probably one of, if not the, easiest monster to Heavy Bowgun since as long as you stay far enough ahead of him you won't get hit. I'm not a veteran of bowgunning since I much prefer to get up close and personal (not to mention the constant drain on supplies and money for ammo) but you've picked a good monster to gun.

I used the Tigrex Skull (High rank rarity 7 HBG from Tigrex Materials) to gun him and I had no trouble with said gun, since I'm relative newbie at gunning, I only managed the repel but a success nonetheless. The gun was fully upgraded and levelled up and I had attached a power barrel and zoom scope. I used pretty much every ammunition available to the bowgun (obviously elemental ammo was unavailable) and aimed it all at his face since I'm pretty sure that's his weak spot (and his lao shan skull-shell to get some breaks).

Since I don't gun often, I didn't really bother getting a fully specialised armour set and simply went for a mix 'n' match of high defence armours which give me a 'jack of all trades' style elemental resistance.

the easyest thing is to stand behind him (not on the platforms but down on the ground of the backwall) use a bowgun with high raw and as much slots for peerce as possible(4+ at least,so you don't loose too much time with reloading) use an armor set with peerce up (I thon ceanataur has that) try to get adrenalin/heroics(not sure if aviveable at that point) and just shoot on his head if he turns don't bother just allway shoot his head.
if you are out of peerce shots just use the others your gun can use.
don't forget materials for combining new ammo and also bring your combo-books.
after you are out of peerce and switching to normal you might wanna stop shooting the skull and change for the feet and if turned to you the face.

or simply watch this, summs all I said up(maybe a little bit clearer): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W9cNN6cXvvE

Take Tigrex Howl.
Take combo books, Pierce Shots, items to combine more Pierce Shots, Pellet S Lv3, Monodevil armour gemmed for Shot Mix.

Activate Adrenaline+2, get to the monster's entrance, and as he comes in use Pellet S Lv3. When he's well past the entrance and you can aim at his shell from the back, start using Pierce Lv3, and combine more. Then use Level 2, then Level 1 ammo. If you end up running out of ammo, start using Normal S and Pellet S.
Using the Dragonator might help as it will usually make the Gaoren flinch before it fires its bomb,, the ballistas not so much.
Using this tactic, but with Assault Conga+ and Ceanataur S, I killed High Rank Shen Gaoren in 25 minutes.

Alternative: Adrenaline+2 and Heroics don't stack, but you can use Ceanataur armour and Heroics instead of the previously mentioned setup. In fact, it would be more effective, as Heroics is slightly more powerful and Pierce S Up is a separate buff and therefore stacks with Heroics.

Thanks for the advice, I've already got Ceanataur armour so I'll use the heroics method.
one more question, I've never done a Heroics method before so I have no idea the best way to lower my health the right amount for it to activate, what items do i need to use to lower my health and how many?

use Bombs.
I think I needet 2 BigBB (not sure ife + or not, think I used the supply ones) and then just use SBB till your healf is low enough (just check in the stats).
if you have bombs left after that, put them at the spot where he comes in and fire them when he's in reach.
