Specialized Tools refer to clothing and equipment that grant you special abilities in Monster Hunter World: Iceborne. The Ghillie Mantle, for example, will temporarily camouflage you from monsters. Specialized tools must be equipped and then used as items in order to have any effect. They can be used an unlimited number of times, but have a cooldown time after each use. The "Tool Specialist" Armor Skill and "Felyne Tailor" Food Skill decrease the cooldown time. You can check the effects of any specialized tools you have equipped from "Equipment Info" in the menu. You start by only being able to carry one specialized tool, but after completing the High Rank storyline you can carry two.

Iceborne does not add any new Specialized Tools, but instead allows you to upgrade them. Mantles gain decoration slots, allowing for additional skill points. Boosters have increased effectiveness.
