Stun Effects

Effect on Hunters

Hunters that become stunned will temporarily enter a dazed state, during which they sway back and forth while being unable to move or attack. 

Effect on Monsters

Monsters that are inflicted with Stun will fall to the ground in a daze, allowing the hunter to follow up with attacks.

 

Stun Cures/Prevention

How to Cure Stun

Hunters that are afflicted with Stun can either mash buttons and rotate the left-stick-switch-mhr-wiki-guide to decrease the duration of the effect, or they can simply wait for the effect to wear off on its own. 

Getting hit with an attack will also dispel this effect. It should be noted that this attack does not have to cause damage, and can come from both monsters as well as teammates. This allows fellow hunters to attack stunned teammates in order to save them. Unlike Paralysis, all weapon attacks are capable of saving stunned teammates. 

How to Prevent Stun

Stun can be prevented by having Lv. 3 of the Stun Resistance armor skill.

 

Stun Mechanics

Stun is a unique Abnormal Status Ailment that is actually inflicted by another Abnormal Status Ailment known as Exhaust. In order to Stun a monster, you must first build up enough Exhaust Damage in it before being able to inflict Stun on it. 

When building up enough Exhaust Damage in a monster to Stun it, you can hit the monster anywhere on its body and the damage will count towards reaching the necessary threshold for stunning the monster. However, once that threshold is reached, you must inflict Exhaust Damage to the monster's head to activate it and actually stun the monster. Otherwise, the monster will not be stunned even though it has enough Exhaust Damage built up in it to be stunned.

This means that any weapon that deals Exhaust Damage can inflict Stun on a monster, including Switch Axes with Exhaust Phials, Light Bowguns and Heavy Bowguns with Exhaust Ammo, and Bows with Exhaust Coatings.

There are technically two main sources of Exhaust Damage. The first is pure Exhaust Damage, which is dealt by the aforementioned weapons. The second is Blunt Damage, a special type of damage that is dealt by certain weapons/attacks.

The Hammer and Hunting Horn are the most famous Blunt Damage weapons because nearly all of their attacks deal Blunt Damage, however almost every weapon has some form of Blunt Damage built into it. The only two weapons that cannot deal Blunt Damage are the Dual Blades and the Switch Axe. 

Blunt Damage also deals Exhaust Damage, which is why hitting a monster in the head with a weapon that does Blunt Damage can Stun them. 

Weapons that deal Blunt Damage can also be used to build up Exhaust Damage in monsters by hitting them anywhere on their bodies with attacks that deal Blunt Damage, not just their heads. But as mentioned before, once enough Exhaust Damage has been built up, the monster will not be stunned unless it is hit in the head with an attack that deals Blunt Damage (a.k.a. Exhaust Damage).

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO NOTE that Stun and Exhaust are two COMPLETELY different Abnormal Status Ailments that each have their own effects. It is easy to mix the two up because they both operate through the same game mechanic, which is Exhaust Damage. Although both Stun and Exhaust are inflicted through Exhaust Damage, they are two very different things.

This can be seen from the fact that Stun has a completely different status threshold than Exhaust. This means that the amount of Exhaust Damage needed to Stun a monster is completely different than the amount of Exhaust Damage needed to Exhaust a monster, because they are two completely different Abnormal Status Ailments.

For more information on Exhaust, please see the Exhaust page.

 

 

Now that we've covered the differences between Stun and Exhaust, we can move on to the differences between Stun and Blind. The Blind status effect is interesting because when it is inflicted on the hunter, the hunter becomes inflicted with Stun. This makes it easy to mistake Stun as being the same thing as Blind, but once again this is not true. Blind is its own unique status effect that is completely separate from Stun. This can be seen from the fact that when you inflict Blind on a monster, it does not become stunned. Instead, it enters a state of confusion and starts running around and blindly attacking the environment.

So if Blind is its own status effect that affects monsters differently from Stun, then why does the hunter become stunned whenever they are inflicted with Blind? This is because when Blind is used on the hunter, it acts as a sort of intermediate status effect that actually inflicts a SECOND status effect, which is Stun. So basically, when a hunter is inflicted with Blind, they become inflicted with Stun because of the effects of Blind.

Stun also interacts with monsters differently than Blind. Whereas Stun has its own status threshold that needs to be surpassed in order for the effect to take place, Blind does not have a status threshold it must overcome in order to affect a monster. Instead, Blind will work against monsters every single time. There is no threshold that needs to be overcome in order to inflict Blind on a monster (it should be noted that monsters can build up a "tolerance" to the effects of Blind, however tolerance thresholds are very different from status thresholds and do not prevent monsters from being affected by the corresponding status effect).

The same concept applies to hunters as well. Every single monster attack has the potential to Stun the hunter, however first the monster has to deal enough damage to the hunter in order to inflict Stun. But some monsters have certain attacks that inflict Blind on the hunter. These attacks are guaranteed to inflict Stun on the hunter, no matter how much damage has been dealt to them by the monster. This is due to the fact that, like we discussed before, Blind does not have a threshold associated with it like Stun does. Blind will inflict its effects on hunters and monsters without fail, whereas Stun needs to surpass a specific status threshold in order to inflict its effects.

For more information on Blind, please see the Blind page.

      Can we just talk about how stun can last an entire minute in this game. I'm not saying that is bad or annoying since it only happens when you don't wiggle out, but I just find it strange. What monster needs a full minute to use your stunned state. What scenario will a stun this long ever come into play, unless you or someone else dung pied the monster and the player just doesn't even try to escape the stun?
