Best hunting team comp?

Yeah.
What would be the best hunting team?
I hear 2 bowguns and 2 hammers a lot, but thinking back on it, it seems like a borderline speed run.

2 tanks, 1 healer, 1 DPS.

my new question is what's the best new 2 man comp, and 3 man comp.
4 people is just overkill
#4Clayton_or_diePosted 5/5/2013 12:59:47 PM
pffft all you need is 1 hammer

4 DPS. Anything else is a crutch.

Shoot, the weapons the hunters use don't matter as long as they understand how to use them in whatever fight they're in.

Four SnS users who know what's going on will take down a monster just fine. They might not be able to tail-cut some of them easily, but them's the breaks. (Or in this case, not.)

1 or two status hunters. (SnS, Lance, bowgun, or longsword)
2 Power weapons (GS, Hammer, or Switch Axe)
If only one status hunter is used, you can pretty much bring whomever you like for the fourth. Someone who won't cart, preferably.

I never did get to the HR rank before the servers went down. (Didn't have Internet until last summer, and I have been in school.) Still, I was happy just to get some halfway decent players in a game with me.

I guess 4 long swords is the way to go.

yes, but that isn't the question being asked. he's asking for the most optimal setup with equally highly skilled players

but to do that we need parameters
The only measurable way I can think of to do so is by which setup can do it the quickest
preferably without bombing or item gimmicks factored

my guess is that it includes at least 1 hammer and 1 lance
