when you use a scatter bow does it divide the power of you bow between each shot, or Is each arrow doing full damage? Also can anyone confirm this for MH Freedom Unite, I'm playing both right now, 3 by myself and Unite with a friend. --- "You do not understand, Earth is another form of Hell, and men are its demons"
As far as I know it uses the same formula from MHFU. I'm by no means a bow expert, but here's the MHFU Bow Damage guide: http://www.gamefaqs.com/psp/943356-monster-hunter-freedom-unite/faqs/57883.
The gist of it is, yeah on a spread shot each arrow is getting a portion of the damage total, with the arrows near the middle of the spread having higher modifiers than those at the edge of the spread.
These are the specific numbers. They enter the damage formula as .04,.05,.04, not as whole numbers.
