Critical Status is a Skill in Monster Hunter World (MHW).
Critical Status Effect
Critical Status has only 1 level:
- Level 1: Increases abnormal status effect damage (Paralysis, Poison, Sleep, Blast) when landing critical hits
Grants an additional status buildup of 20% on critical hits. For Greatsword, Hammer, Hunting Horn and Heavy Bowgun the buildup bonus is 40% instead.
For melee weapons and blast element bows, the status has to actually proc on the critical hit for the bonus to be applied, while it is always applied on status ammo/coatings as long as you are landing critical hits.
For an upgraded version of this skill, see True Critical Status.
