What Are The Most Popular Monster Hunter Weapons?

Ishaan: ''Monster Hunter is one of Japan’s most popular games and is played by an incredibly wide range of people. One of the reasons for its immense popularity is the social aspect. Monster Hunter made its name on cooperative multiplayer and going hunting with allies by your side is one of its strongest appeals.

The other reason is the customization. The game has a wide variety of weapon classes and skills that you can outfit your character with, and they have a considerable effect on how one approaches combat in the game. For example, the Sword & Shield class is for those that prefer quick attacks while heavier weapon classes like the Great Sword and Long Sword are more dependent on opportune timing. This means that there’s something for everyone’s preferred style.

That said, the Long Sword and Great Sword are among the more popular weapons in Japan, Monster Hunter producer, Ryozo Tsujimoto, tells us.'' (3DS, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, Ryozo Tsujimoto, Wii U)
