Palico Gadgets in Monster Hunter World (MHW) are used by Palicoes to heal the hunter, stun Monsters, provoke Monsters or other various effects. Palicoes can only have 1 Gadget equipped at a time, so you must choose what you will be needing on the Hunt. Below is a list of Gadgets in Monster Hunter World. Gadgets can be changed on your Palico by talking to him inside your home in Asteria.

      Hello, I am Kiyan1159. I will be attemting to flesh out the Palico Gadgets by adding to them whenever I gain new information and can confirm it. If you have a screenshot or recording of anything not currently listed in the wiki, please PM me and I'll look into confirming it and adding it in. Or you can do it yourself, either is fine. I hope to see the Palicos having a full guide. Thank you.

        One night I was drinking while playing. My Palico had the Meowlotov Cocktail (lvl 10). When I placed bombs on a monster my Palico placed a teeny tiny bomb with mine. I almost started crying because it was so adorable.

          plunderblade ultimate the palarang is great for dropping dragon pods and bomb pods during the xeno fight as a melee helps bring it back to ground.

              You can also Change your Palico's Gadget, as well as other gear, inside the Camp Tents at each camp when on a Quest or Expedition; not just in your home in Astera.

                The plunderblade has a chance of getting rare items from the monster so long as the specific part is broken. so if youre farming gems or plates, the plunderblade has a chance of getting them

                  wander around the vale untill you see a Grimalkyne [mine was around the Odogaron's nest] it will run away and you can go to their hideaway, place raw meat outside the entrance and they will come out of their hideing, wait and they will give you the plunderblade, usually gives you carapaces, scales and other easy to get materials, good for unlocking the armor set withought actually killing the monster, normally gets up to 3-4 different things and grabs 3-4 materials each quest [unless a long fight] [when i tried on nergigante i got enough to make 1 part of the set from 3-4 failed attempts to kill it] [next tried on vaal hazek and i can make 1 part of that armor] easily get 1 part of the monsters armor withought actually killing it
