Shoots 2 Types Of Special Ammo

Each Heavy Bowgun will be equipped with either of the two special ammo types: the Wyvernsnipe & Wyvernheart, each with a different effect & firing method.

Guard By Equipping Shield Mod

Slow Sheathing Motion

The sheathing motion of the Heavy Bowgun is slowest among all weapon types. Use guard or Counter Shot to avoid taking damage so that you don't have to sheathe during the combat.

Low Mobility
