For example I only recently learned you could fire your slinger while in the animation where your about to be pinned (like for example when rathalos is about to grab you you an fire a flash) I thought it was just locked in a fixed animation

Looking for more sort of obscure tips like that, figure it might good to have them in one place to help myself and perhaps other people new to the series.

Edit: lots of great responses so far so I'm going to edit in a list here for easier reading if anyone comes across this thread, thank you everyone for the helpful contributions and I hope I haven't butchered formatting

Edit 2: more posts included, added another tip of my own too 🙂

  • Mantels do not deteriorate when your weapon is sheathed and you are not moving.

  • You can stagger diablos out of his/her dig attack by hitting them with slinger ammo at the very end of their dig animation.

  • You can roll into a downhill slide instead of waiting for your character to "slip" into the slide

  • You can modify your radial menu to include "Signal", which calls your palico to you and catches the attention of other players when doing multiplayer

  • You can customize your item bar by pressing triangle when viewing your pouch.

  • Radial Menus are saved per item loadout

  • You can press circle to skip 1 dialog loop when talking to NPCs, some NPCs have 1 loop or 2 loops of dialog which can be skipped this way, instead of spamming X

  • Press Start to stop the kill cam zoomout

  • Hitting dead corpses can fill up weapon gauges

  • Slinger Torch can "melt" parts of the lavasioth; making it easier to hit.

  • Holding R1 speeds up the opening book animation when picking out a quest

  • Pitfall trap traps the monster for longer but takes longer to set up; monsters can gain more resistance to shock traps and pitfall traps, but the resistance is separate for both types of traps.

  • You do not have to brace when mounting a monster, by watching the animation you can simply move away and move back to your desired spot after the monsters attack is done; similarly, attacking the body area allows you to swing faster, potentially downing the monster faster at the risk of not doing your mounting finisher.

  • When the Uragan or the Baan, (the 2 rolling guys) fall on their sides you can mine off their backs by putting away your weapon and mining normally, you should see the weapon put away prompt also

  • Play Possum gesture lowers your hitbox, but gives no invencibility frames whatsoever.

  • Palicos can get attacked inside the camp tents.

  • Poogie can dig up outfits in certain locations of Astera.

  • You can skip the canteen and forge's cutscenes by pressing Option.

  • If you fertilize your crops once, and then again after 1 quest it will turn into a higher quality fertilizer that rewards like 3x the materials, ontop of that each time you do this you also gain +3 days of fertilized time. The higher quality fertilizer will never change until time runs out (i use this to get 8 items with each harvest).

  • You can actually throw tranq bombs without waking the monster and then put down a shock trap (or tell your palico to put theirs down if you’re using the trap gadget). The monster will be captured immediately when the trap goes off, regardless of built up tolerance from earlier traps.

  • You could climb walls with an insect glaive

  • you could latch onto barnos in ancient Forrest if you hit it with slinger ammo first

  • multiple people can eat a wiggly lichi if they grab it at the same time

  • active mantles block effluvial chip damage,

  • you could run up jagged mushroom walls,

  • you could destroy environmental hazards like waterfall dam and vine trees with bombs,

  • You could aim cannons by pushing O/B against it from the side

  • You can pick up slinger ammo while mounting. See a hanging scatternut? Press circle when the monster walks near it. Then you can fire it point blank at the face.

  • Thorn ammo for the slinger does KO damage. When you have some, mount the monster and move to its head. Fire the thorns in and then when you do the knife stabs it'll generally do enough to proc a stun. Makes your first mount pretty fast, and it feels badass.

  • Poogie can dig up meal vouchers when placed near the handler. Just don't get too close to the oven or Poogie will run off. The voucher isn't always there, but it's fairly common.

  • If you crouch for 5 sec when you are bleeding (odogaron malus) you will lose the bleeding status and save an astera jerky

  • You can destroy body part of dead monster with the dragonator

  • You can teleport to the workshop by pressing select then x and selecting astera, its way faster then just running there

  • By finishing an arena (the gathering halls one) You can obtain life powder as a reward, Which make it easier to obtain them instead of just crafting them

  • You can craft while being pushed back by the monster instead of just waiting to get back on all 2. (refilling your flash bang for example)

  • As a CB user, you can charge your sword if your shield is charged. Hold triangle when charging phials (R2+O).

  • Gajalaka Shelling doesn't seem to interrupt mounts.

  • crafting from your item box is MUCH easier, along with restocking your inventory by pressing Y/triangle

  • If you crouch for 5 sec when you are bleeding (odogaron malus) you will lose the bleeding status and save an astera jerky

  • You can destroy body part of dead monster with the dragonator

  • You can teleport to the workshop by pressing select then x and selecting astera, its way faster then just running there

  • By finishing an arena (the gathering halls one) You can obtain life powder as a reward, Which make it easier to obtain them instead of just crafting them

  • You can craft while being pushed back by the monster instead of just waiting to get back on all 2. (refilling your flash bang for example)

  • if you fire bright moss at a Shamos’ face the Shamos and its pack will run away. This works in combat too.

  • On ps4 (sorry i don't know if there's an Xbox equivalent) if you set your console settings to leave games suspended when in rest mode you can use rest mode to pause the game, it will kick you out of an online session but otherwise the game will be in the exact state you left it in (except some notices about losing connection) you can also use this if somebody is trying to stop you from carving at the end of the quest even if you aren't host, just quickly put console in rest mode and when you restart it you'll be back in the same place but everyone else will be gone (even if you weren't the host)

  • If you use your whet stone from radial menu you don't have to sheathe your weapon

  • You regain health much faster from a potion if you are crouching.

  • Screamer pods unburrow Diablos when they dig – you can get screamer pods easily from the captain and selecting consumables.

  • You can shave a second or two off potion animation while running by rolling when the health has gone up as much as it's going to, puts you moving at full speed a little faster

  • You can use your slinger while pinned down by a monster.
