Blastblight is a Status Effect in Monster Hunter World (MHW). Blastblight causes a damaging explosion on both Hunters and Monsters.


Blast Effect

On Monsters

  • Triggering the effect requires buildup inflicted by:
    Weapons that wield Blast damage or Bow Blast Coating.
    Buildup damage is modified by a Monsters resistance to Blast.
  • When Blast is triggered, an explosion will occur at the nearest unbroken Monster Body Part, dealing 120 Parts Damage to all Parts in a small radius. This damage becomes 300 in Master Rank.
  • Buildup effect is identifiable by crackling orange sparks at the point of impact.
  • Each successive trigger of Blast requires more buildup than the last, but the effect damage remains the same.


On the Player and Allies

  • Hunters inflicted with Blastblight will have crackling orange sparks appear on their person, which will erupt in a damaging explosion after a short time or if a hard enough impact is received. The explosion can affect nearby allies.
  • The effect can be recognized by this symbol: Blastblight on the HUD
  • Can be cured with a Nulberry or by dodge-rolling up to three times.
