Poison Ammo is an Ammo type in Monster Hunter World (MHW); it comes in two levels.


When fired from a Bowgun, Poison Ammo releases a single projectile which deals Poison buildup damage to a target.

All levels of Poison Ammo have the following basic properties:

  • Buildup caused by Poison Ammo triggers the Poison Ailment on a Monster, which deals damage over time.
  • While Blademaster weapons have a 1/3 chance of causing buildup with each hit, it is guaranteed with each shot of Poison Ammo. Level 1 does about as much buildup as a Weapon with 400 Poison damage, while level 2 does about twice as much.
  • Buildup is modified by the Poison Attack Skill. It is not affected by Attack, and is only affected by Affinity with the Critical Status Skill active. 
  • Raw (physical) Damage of each projectile negligible due to a very low Combo Move multiplier. See Attack Power for more information.
  • Some Bowguns can fire Poison Ammo in rapid-fire or quick-reload modes.

See the articles for Light Bowgun and Heavy Bowgun for more information on Poison and other ammo types.
See Bowgun Ammo for a quick list of Bowgun Ammo types.
