Poison Smoke Bomb
Poison Smoke Bomb is an Item in Monster Hunter World (MHW). It allows a Hunter to trigger Poison effects on Monsters.
Releases a toxic cloud of mist when used. Also popular as a household bug bomb.
Poison Smoke Bombs can be used from the Item Bar while in the field to briefly produce a cloud of poisonous smoke at the Hunter's feet. When a Monster is standing in this cloud, they will continually receive buildup towards the Poison Status Effect. The poison cloud lasts for five seconds.
Each full duration of a poison cloud causes about 2.5x as much buildup as Poison Ammo 1. For reference, this should be five instances of buildup from a Blademaster Weapon that wields about 400 Poison Damage against a Poison-neutral Monster.
A Monster's resistance to Poison will modify the effectiveness of Poison Smoke Bombs as follows:
- Resistance to Poison (⭐) will require 2.5 full-duration Bombs to trigger once, then another 3.75 to trigger again
- Neutrality to Poison (⭐⭐) will require 2 Bombs, then another 3
- Weakness to Poison (⭐⭐⭐) will require 1.5 Bombs, then another 2.25
Additionally, the effects of Poison Smoke Bombs are modified by the Poison Attack Skill.
See Status Effects for more information on how Status buildup works.
