The Farcaster is a very useful way of getting out of a scrape or retreating to regroup. By using one, you are teleported back to base camp and can heal up, sharpen, combine, and raid the supply box for anything helpful.
From Monster Hunter Freedom 2 onwards, hunters have been able to create upto ten extra Farcasters in the field by combining Bomb Material and Exciteshroom. Farcasters can also be purchased from the Peddling Granny.
It should be noted that a hunter is temporarily vulnerable having thrown a Farcaster, so don't try and escape half a second before an angry Tigrex charge plows into you!
