Supply Item Function
Most Supply Items serve as Quest-only substitutes for regular Items, the only difference being that Supply Items cannot be sold and will be returned to the Research Commission when the Hunter returns from the field.
This allows the Research Commission to support Hunters with useful tools without allowing Hunters to take more than they absolutely need or sell surplus Items for their own gain.
The following is a comprehensive list of all Supply Items and their normal counterparts, with the exception of Slinger Knives, which exist only as Supply Items.
|All Supply Items|
|First-aid Med+||2||10||Mega Potion|
|EZ Max Potion||2||1||Max Potion|
|EZ Tranq Bomb||3||8||Tranq Bomb|
|EZ Shock Trap||3||1||Shock Trap|
|EZ Pitfall Trap||3||1||Pitfall Trap|
|EZ Flash Pod||2||3||Flash Pod|
|EZ Screamer Pod||2||3||Screamer Pod|
Slinger Knives are Supply Items that function as special Slinger Ammo with various applications.
Poison, Sleep, and Paralysis Knives can be used to apply Status Ailments to Monsters. These Status Knives cause about as much buildup as a Weapon that wields 800 points of that Status, or about as much as one round of Level 2 Status Bowgun Ammo.
Supply Item Acquisition
All Supply Items are given to Hunters through the Supply Box on Quests. The Research Commission will supply Hunters with First-aid Meds and EZ Rations on all Quests, along with EZ Tranq Bombs and EZ Shock Traps on all Quests with capture objectives.
Some Quests, especially Arena Quests will supply various Knives, or even EZ Max Potions, Pods, and Traps, depending on the difficulty of the objective.
Additionally, First-aid Meds, EZ Rations, and Slinger Knives will sometimes be left behind by defeated Gajalaka.
