You play with me almost every week and dare ask this?

Pierce is definitely worth using. It's not as strong as spread but it's a viable option that won't leave you completely gimped, and you'll still likely complete hunts within 10 minutes using it (though you won't be getting sub 5's against MR6+ monsters, obv). Normal 3 isn't terrible either and it's a reasonable weapon to use the Special Scope on plus it can actually run life honing so that's neat. Normal 3 is the one I've used the least but... it's pretty serviceable.

Sticky LBG/HBG can be used as fairly long ranges since the only thing that cares about crit distance is the initial impact of the sticky round (which already deals fairly pathetic damage). The explosions give 0 s*** about where you are in relation, from what I understand. Obviously don't cross map with it or you'll miss a lot of shots (and the rounds disappear after a fairly long distance).

Bow is just fun. I've been a long-time bow player (I've used it in FU, Tri, P3rd, 3U, 4U, Gen, and GU), and spamming shots doesn't feel right to me either, and it took a lot more time to pick up the changes than most of the other weapons, but you're likely going to be within Normal to Spread shots distance to monsters- bow has never been an actual ranged weapon in that you can fire a safe distance from the monster and World continues that streak, lol.
Sony bought Konami and will release a DDR game for the Nintendo 3DS. In this game, you set your 3DS on the floor and stomp on it till it no longer functions.

I see, that's my bad. I'll be sure to bring clusters next time.

Pierce is very nice with the scope for firing at range.

Pierce 3 is a lot better now but still really situational, there's some weird issues with critical range and ranged up mods not working on most of the hits. Sticky 3 ammo is actually kind of broken in Iceborne though. I really like the Zorah and Rajang HBGs, they actually have pretty good DPS just spamming stickies.

Pierce and Sticky, as mentioned already. Elemental LBG doesn't need to be in the monsters face, but they do need to stay in critical distance.
Is that Christ bullet ten-tapped?
