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


When fired from a Bowgun, Sticky Ammo releases releases a single projectile which sticks to a target, exploding after a short delay and dealing True Damage.

All levels of Sticky Ammo have the following basic properties:

  • Damage of each projectile is negligible due to an extremely low combo move multiplier.
  • Damage of each explosion is affected by the Hunter's Attack Power and the Artillery Skill.
  • Damage is not affected by recoil, Bowgun Deviation, Affinity (critical hits,) travel distance, or body part multipliers.
  • Explosions have the ability to Stun if they are close enough to a Monster's head.

The Combo Move multipliers for Sticky Ammo levels 1, 2, and 3 are approximately 12, 16, and 19, respectively. See Attack Power for more information.

The amount of Stun buildup dealt by Stick Ammo levels 1, 2, and 3 is approximately 30, 50, and 100, respectively.

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