Does anyone know anything about charm sniping? I know what charm table my character is on and I've tried every effing guide under the sky. The most comprehensive one I followed talked about the "Weak cooking lock", "strong cooking lock", and how to "charm shotgun" as well. Problem is, neither one of the cooking locks work for me. I memorize what ingredients I eat, eat/reboot until I get Felyne Explorer, then don't save just as EVERY guide directs. After that, they say if you don't save between quests, eating the same fish and the same drink will always net you Felyne Explorer. I call bullshit on that. I haven't gotten that to work one single, solitary time.
Any help/tips would be nice, because I'd love to learn how to charm snipe, but you can't do it until you figure out how to get the weak/strong cooking locks to work. I'll link you guys to the guide I used. It can be found HERE
P.S. I tried to post this in the already-existing MH3U topic, but the last reply was greater than 21 days ago, so it shot me down. If someone wants to reopen that thread, I'll be glad to delete this and take the discussion there.
