The Charge Pistol is a new weapon type introduced in Monster Hunter U. It fires ranged 'Charged Shots' that slowly deplete in power over time, and can attack with a sword in the left hand in melee.

Controls

(These controls may be inverted to the R button if the Inverted Fire option is on for the Bow, as it now affects the Charge Pistol too)

  • X= Fire
  • Hold X= Charged Fire
  • A= Sword Attack (may be pressed up to 4 times for a combo, and held for a stronger forwards stab)
  • X+A= Sweeping Strike
  • X+A, Hold X= Discharge
  • X repeatedly= Rapid Fire
  • R= Melee swipes with Pistol (may be done 3 times in succession)

Notes

  • When cycling through Charges with the L button, they're equipped automatically.
  • Each Charge has a certain amount of charged stages depending on how many times it's been upgraded.
  • The Discharge attack uses the power of 5 fully charged shots of that Charge, and always causes K.O damage if struck on head.
