New Monster Hunter Online Screenshots Introduce the Bowgun

on May 22, 2013 11:46 AM

Today the Chinese MMORPG giant Tencent Games released a new batch of screenshots featuring another of the signature weapons that will be available in the upcoming Monster Hunter Online: the Bowgun.

Hunters using the Bowgun will have access to a special charge attack that will increase in power depending on how long the attack button is kept pressed, an AOE attack that will use multiple ammo to hit a large area, but will overheat the weapon in the process, a short range melee attack, and a “Snipe Mode”, in which they’ll be able to precisely aim on their target from a first person view point like in a FPS. There will also be an explosive special attack named “Dragon Bomb”.

If you’re curious about how the Bowgun gameplay will look, you can check out the gallery below.
