Dung Pods are consumable Slinger ammo Items in Monster Hunter World (MHW). They are used to repel Monsters with an unbearable smell.
Slinger ammo that releases a strong odor on impact. Causes certain monsters to flee.
When used from the Item Bar while in the field, Dung Pods will be loaded into the Slinger, and can then be aimed with / / C, and fired with / / . Upon impact with a Monster, it will detonate and coat the target with a repellent smell. This will often cause the Monster to flee the area, but may not work if the Monster is staggered by an attack and forced to reengage, or is otherwise preoccupied.
The effectiveness of Dung Pods can be enhanced with the Dungmaster Skill.
See Botanical Research for information on cultivating large amounts of crafting materials.
See Loadouts for information on configuring Item storage and use.
Dung Pods are only one of three Items that can be brought to the field by Hunters to use in the Slinger, the others being Flash Pod and Screamer Pod.
How to Acquire Dung Pod
This material can be obtained through Crafting. Both Dung and Rolled-Up Dung are identical in their function as Materials, but have different carrying capacities. Rolled-Up Dung can be found in many of the same places as Dung if a Dung Beetle is nearby.
