One of my favorite fights. So we'll done.
Couldnt find the original author but props to them.
Looking for experienced hunters.
I'm relatively new to Monster Hunter: World but I'm looking for people just to have a good time with and maybe a few laughs. I don't really have many gaming friends. If you're interested let me know.
Nargacuga and Tigrex 😍
Nargacuga and Tigrex where by far my 2 favorite monsters. I loved Tigrex from previous monster hunter games but I have a new found love for Nargacuga as well.
Xeno'jiiva and Nergigante 😍💜
Some of the last boss fights in the game and I really enjoyed them. They where really well done. 💜
To those out there I am looking to have permanent squad members. If you are serious please message me. Must be okay with being in streams on Twitch and YouTube.
Monster Hunter World: Iceborne – how to get Monster Essence
You’ll be able to find Vespoids in several locations, but you’ll need to be Master Rank in order to do so. While small, these little buggers can surround and overwhelm you quite quickly, especially if you’re distracted by a larger beast.
You’ll need to use weapons that will leave behind a corpse to carve – if they shatter, you won’t be able to collect Monster Essence – so use your slinger and ammo such as Redpits.
Just started it and want some ppl to do this dlc with so message me if interested to do some hints barely started so yeah I'm on PS4 hit me up
MHW Best Armor Sets
Viper Kadachi +
-Total Defense: 660
-Total Fire Defense: 5
-Total Water Defense: 15
-Total Thunder Defense: -15
-Total Ice Defense: -10
-Total Dragon Defense: 5
Each piece of Viper Tobi-Kadachi armor has 132 defense, along with decent Water resistance and mild Dragon and Fire resistance. The big draw of the Viper Kadachi + armor is that it offers the Evade Extender skill, which significantly increases your roll distance.
-Total Defense: 770
-Total Fire Defense: -15
-Total Water Defense: 10
-Total Thunder Defense: -5
-Total Ice Defense: 20
-Total Dragon Defense: -5
Velkhana armor pieces have 154 defense and offer great resistance to Ice and Water attacks. With a full set, you’ll deal more elemental damage — regardless of element — when landing critical hits. Attack power rises when your weapon is sheathed, then depletes as you use it. On top of the set bonuses, you’ll get Divine Blessing (has the chance to reduce damage), Defense Boost, Flinch Free (nullifies knockbacks and tripping), Critical Draw (100 percent critical hit chance when drawing weapon), Quick Sheath, and Coalescence (enhances attacks after removing status effects).
Fulgur Anjanath +
-Total Defense: 730
-Total Fire Defense: -5
-Total Water Defense: -5
-Total Thunder Defense: 10
-Total Ice Defense: -15
-Total Dragon Defense: 0
Fulgur Anjanath is one strong T. Rex, so it’s no surprise his armor set happens to be one of the sturdiest in Iceborne. A full set will increase your stamina cap, which is particularly helpful in the frigid Hoarfrost Reach. Elemental thunder damage is increased. If you use thunder-based weapons, this set will help you against Nargacuga, Tigrex, Viper Tobi-Kadachi, and other monsters who are weak to thunder. The best skill it offers is Weakness Exploit. When striking weak points, you’ll have a 30 percent affinity boost that turns to 50 percent when striking wounded areas. This armor also has the benefit of increasing item duration by 50 percent — an extremely helpful skill when using consumables such as Armor Skins, Adamant Seeds, and Might Seeds.
-Total Defense: 700
-Total Fire Defense: -10
-Total Water Defense: 10
-Total Thunder Defense: -15
-Total Ice Defense: 0
-Total Dragon Defense: 0
The Nargacuga set is great against water and has some really excellent skills. Will a full set, you’ll get Nargacuga Essence, a helpful skill that keeps your weapon sharp much longer. For light weapon users, the Stamina Surge skill is a huge plus, as it significantly increases stamina recovery. The Evade Window skill was mentioned earlier, but Nargacuga’s is unmatched at a level five. You don’t have to worry about taking damage when dodging.
Dual Blades and Hunting Horn for me. Either all in damage or support.

Tips on: How to get the most out of the new expansion (Part 3/3)
5. Decorate, decorate, decorate
This is one aspect that a lot of players can forget about; it’s not about technically looking good, it’s also about making sure that you have things like Jewels and rare stones in your gear. You’ll get more of these shiny rewards from undertaking capture quests than elimination ones at higher ranks, so keep that in mind when you’re traipsing around the forest. Decorations allow you to customise your gear, whether it’s raising your resistances or improving your damage dealt, so stacking them with the right armor skills is an integral part of making your Iceborne trip go as smoothly as possible.
6. Don’t forget about your base
Sure, you’ll be jetting off to the Hoarfrost Reach in no time flat once you’ve gotten the hang of things in Iceborne. That being said, please never forget your roots. There’s so much to do back in the village, including growing valuable plant material for consumables and also making the most of the Argosy’s rare wares. With all the potions, tonics, and medicines that you’ll be chugging through if you’re cracking into this expansion at the minimum required item level, it makes sense to be financially savvy and to ensure that your facilities in the base are upgraded enough for you to make these important items instead of spending your hard-earned zenny on them. It’s just cost-effective, and coming back to craft is a good way to ensure that you’re also working on picking up bounties and getting into the habit of doing those before you tackle the day’s major hunts.
Iceborne Dual Blades Stats
Iceborne Dual Blades are Master Rank Dual Blades in Monster Hunter World Iceborne (MHW). These rare 9 and above weapons were added with the Iceborne Expansion and can only be obtained by players who own the expansion. The weapons use Master Rank Materials that can be obtained by completing quests and doing endgame content.
Recommended Combo List: "Hammer"
OVERHEAD SMASH COMBO
This is the most basic but very useful all around combo.
1. Overhead Smash I
2. Overhead Smash II
COMBO TO CLOSE IN DISTANCE
As the name suggests, this the combo you wanna use when you're trying to close in the distance from the monster. It'd be best if you could hit and finish the combo all the way but if you see an incoming attack, it's best to dodge to the side first.
1. Charge Tier 2
2. Charged Upswing
3. Side Smash
4. Overhead Smash II
5. Charged Upswing
SPINNING BLUDGEON COMBOS
This combo will unleash your Power Charge using a spinning attack and it'll finish up with a powerful swing. You can finish the spinning attack anytime during the rotation.
1. Charge Tier 3 → Spinning Bludgeon → Spinning Side Smash (Δ at the first rotation)
2. Charge Tier 3 → Spinning Bludgeon → Spinning Follow Up (Δ at the 2nd or 3rd rotation)
3. Charge Tier 3 → Spinning Bludgeon → Spinning Strong Upswing (Δ at the 4th or 5th rotation)
Tips on: How to get the most out of the new expansion (Part 2/3)
3. Get familiar with weapon changes
Everyone’s favourite weapons have gotten a bit of a facelift in the form of new combos, synergy with the clutch claw, and in some cases, new skills and finishers entirely. Make sure that you’re either giving the full array of weapons a go in Arena if you’re not quite sure what the changes do in practice, or that you read up on how your trusty longsword might have changed. Charge Axe users can now activate Power Axe form to boost damage, or to cancel an attack into a powerful finisher that keeps enemies at bay. Gunlance users get an explosive new skill called Wyrmstake Blast, while Heavy Bowgun users receive new mods. Of course, we simply can’t ignore what they’ve done with the Hunting Horn. Ever wanted to stick your instrument in the ground and just have it spin repeatedly as it pours out discordant notes, ever-ready to knock out whichever monster has picked now to charge at you? We never knew that we needed that in our lives until Iceborne. The moral of the story is to not be afraid to fiddle with the controls until you’ve gotten the hang of how to trigger every new skill that your chosen weapon has. We can almost guarantee that you’ll thank us later.
4. Armor skills, resistances, and effects
When you play the game of elemental resistances, you either win or you die. The critters in Iceborne are no joke, and will come chock full of venom, boiling hot water (don’t ask), or just bolts of electric energy designed to fry you to a crisp. When you’re not dealing with chip damage from those elemental abilities, then you may very well be staring down the barrel of a beast who could end you with one, well-placed bite. We can’t help you get any better at dodging, but we can help you combat anything and everything elemental so long as you’ve got the materials for it.
As with the base game, farming up lower ranking hunt targets and capturing them for resources is what you’re going to want to spend a decent amount of time on when you start to hit certain thresholds in the expansion where your older gear might just not be cutting it. It’s worth it to stay up to date on the latest elemental weaknesses and resistances, as always, and you’ll be able to frontload some of this grinding if you’ve already picked up gear from DLC events or taken down some Arch-Tempered foes for valuable and versatile equipment. Make sure that you’re taking fire resistant armour to a firefight, and all should be golden.
MHW Iceborne NEW HIGHEST RAW DAMAGE WEAPONS
Iceborne FINAL BOSS Armor/Weaspons/Skills
Iceborne Swords & Shields Stats
Iceborne Sword & Shields are Master Rank Sword & Shields in Monster Hunter World Iceborne (MHW). These rare 9 and above weapons were added with the Iceborne Expansion and can only be obtained by players who own the expansion. The weapons use Master Rank Materials that can be obtained by completing quests and doing endgame content.
How to increase the STEAM LEVEL and get NEW ITESM
The Steamworks is a big machine in your new town, Seliana. You’re tasked with keeping it fueled, so all of the new hunters can stay warm in the frozen tundra. To do this, you’ll need to pump fuel into the Steamworks (we’ll get into acquiring fuel later). It takes 10 fuel for every attempt to increase the steam level.
When you sit down to actually increase the steam, it may seem daunting. You’ll see a panel on your left, a big steam gauge in the middle, and three small boxes with buttons on them below. The truth is this system isn’t complicated. You just need to hit the buttons in a random order. If you get the order right, you’ll see checkmarks on the boxes. If not, you’ll get an X. Checkmarks increase the steam level, and X does nothing.
You can’t see the correct order to input the face buttons. It’s completely random. We spent our first few attempts trying to guess the order until we discovered the right trigger. Just holding down the right trigger will run through the order and burn fuel. As far as we see it, it’s just as likely to get you checkmarks as trying on your own, and it’s much faster.
Increasing the steam level isn’t just for the benefit of the town. Each time you get three checkmarks, you’ll get a new item to add to your storage. Sometimes it’s something you can sell, but it’s mostly just more potions or resources. When you complete three full steam bars, you’ll see a cutscene and earn some higher-tier items.
After the cutscene, the Steamwork resets and you start back at zero.
*****How to input fuel
You can’t run the Steamwork without fuel, but getting fuel is easy.
When you return from a mission, the Steamwork will have accumulated some fuel passively for you to use. That means you can run the Steamwork a few times after each mission — or let the passive fuel pile up for a few missions and then use it.
You can also spend some of your ore resources on fuel. The ratio with this isn’t great, so we don’t recommend it unless you have tons of unused fuel to burn. However, Iceborne will ask you to turn in certain items for fuel when you open the Steamwork menu. The Steamwork uses some ore pieces that are only useful as fuel, and the game will auto convert it for you if you accept the prompt. You can find these fuel pieces out in the world, so make sure you mine every crystal.
When your fuel stores hit zero, step away for a bit and wait for more fuel to accumulate on its own. Even if you’re close to a new upgrade, it’s not worth it to burn your own precious ore.
Master Rank PALICO Equipment
ICEBORNE PALICO WEAPONS
Palicoes can equip 4 different equipment: Weapons, Helms, Chest Armor and Gadgets. Palico Equipment works much the same way that player Equipment does, and is made from Materials that drop from Monsters.
Recommended Combo List: "Long Word"
BASIC SPIRIT GAUGE LEVEL UP COMBO
This is a basic Long Sword combo that will raise your Spirit Gauge by one level. This is the easiest and most straightforward combo to do when you want to up your Spirit Gauge by a level.
1. Overhead Slash
3. Rising Slash
4. Spirit Blade I
5. Spirit Blade II
6. Spirit Blade III
7. Spirit Roundlash
FADE SLASH COMBO FOR RE-POSITIONING
With this combo, you are able to adjust your positioning with the Fade Slash or Lateral Fade Slash moves without compromising your DPS. The Foresight Slash allows you to take a step back or parry any incoming monster attacks.
1. Overhead Slash
3. Fade Slash or Lateral Fade Slash
4. Foresight Slash
5. Spirit Jumping Slash
FORESIGHT SLASH COMBO
This is a good attack combo that also allows for parrying or countering a monster's move. This prevents your Hunter from taking damage while dishing it out on the monster instead.
1. Overhead Slash
3. Rising Slash
4. Foresight Slash
5. Spirit Jumping Slash
SPIRIT HELM BREAKER COMBO
This combo deals a great deal of attack damage but should only be used when the monster is stationary or when your Spirit Gauge is in the red.
1. Spirit Thrust
2. Spirit Helm Breaker
3. Spirit Blade I
4. Spirit Blade II
5. Spirit Blade III
6. Spirit Roundlash
Tips on: How to get the most out of the new expansion (Part 1/3)
1. Learn how to use the clutch claw
This is the most important addition to your hunter’s arsenal in Iceborne, hands down. Sure, using it as optional, and if you’ve gone through most of your monster-slaying career without it then even remembering that it’s there is going to be a bit of a nightmare initially That being said, it’s highly effective and versatile if you do figure out how to make it work in your favour. In short, it acts like a sort of grappling hook: aim it at a particularly meaty portion of the beast you’re fighting and if it connects, you’ll be able to essentially catapult yourself over to it.
Depending on the primary weapon that you have equipped, you’ll have a number of options available to you once you throw that claw in the clutch. Want to rappel up the side of a monster like it’s a giant, fire-breathing cliff face? You can do that. Want to steer your agonized foe into a pesky pitfall or vine trap? You can do that. Want to deal a devastating, crippling blow to an enemy? You can do that. The key here is making sure that you capitalize on any and every opportunity to use this new accessory.
2. Pack for the journey
We can’t stress this one enough; the clue is in the expansion’s name. Your fragile hunter bodies aren’t equipped for the sub-zero temperatures that the new location of Hoarfrost Reach brings to the table. Those who are savvy enough will make sure to stock up on Hot Drinks so that they don’t run out of stamina and end up as a Barrioth’s dinner. You’ll also want to make sure that you take on some of the highest level healing potions that you can craft, along with niche items like Antidote and Herbal Medicine. You’ll be encountering a lot of monster varietals that play like previous familiar foes that have been ruthlessly experimented on. Elemental effects are essentially the name of the game, so make sure that you’ve got a little bit of everything in your pack to cure the most pesky of inflictions.

Monster Hunter World Iceborne - Iceborne Starter Guide
Why you wanna upgrade your furry little friend
If you’re hunting solo or in a group of two, make sure to build new tools for your Palico. Don’t just focus on your own armor and weapons. Build new tools for your Palico. The difference between a geared Palico and a weak Palico is shocking in Iceborne. These fights are hard, and you’ll notice a big difference if you can get your feline friends to carry their own weight.
Palico gadgets each get a new ability in Iceborne. To unlock them, you’ll need to level up your tool a bit more. Pick the ones you like best and stick with them. We recommend the Coral Orchestra for negating debuffs, or the Vigorwasp Spray to keep you and your pet healthy.
Iceborne Great Swords Stats
Iceborne Great Swords are Master Rank Great Swords in Monster Hunter World Iceborne (MHW). These rare 9 and above weapons were added with the Iceborne Expansion and can only be obtained by players who own the expansion. The weapons use Master Rank Materials that can be obtained by completing quests and doing endgame content.
Recommended Combo List: "Great Swords"
BASIC CHARGED SLASH COMBO
This is a basic Great Sword combo that does Charged Slash attacks. Due to the slow attack speed, it's best to build this combo up when the monster is down or staying still.
1. Overhead Slash
2. Strong Charged Slash
3. True Charged Slash
TRUE CHARGED SLASH COMBO
A combo that aims close the distance towards the monster. It utilizes the Tackle, which can negate monster knockback, and deal the heavy True Charged Slash.
5. True Charged Slash
TACKLE + JUMPING WIDE SLASH COMBO
This combo is perfect to use when you need to cancel charging the Great Sword. Time it properly to do an effective Tackle then dives into a powerful Jumping Wide Slash.
3. Jumping Wide Slash

Monster Hunter World Iceborne | Velkhana Armor Set, Weapons & Gameplay

I am a returning player from the monster hunter series but world seems to be a whole new playing field I have gotten decently far in the campaign I just need help getting to a higher HR
3 Core Weapon Attributes: Sharpness, Affinity & Element
If you are new to the game, the sharpness meter system they are using in this game can be a bit confusing with all the colors ranging from WHITE (the Sharpest) all the way down to RED (Dull). Your weapon will be at its sharpest right after you sharpen it and once you start using it here and there, it'll become less and less effective and more and more dull like in real life.
When you have to choose between two weapons, and if everything else is pretty much the same (class, values, etc), let the sharpness of the weapon guide your choice then. You wanna see mostly white, blue and green and they will last longer and stay effective longer between whetstone uses. If you see huge chunk of red,orange and yellow, you know it's going to lose its effective sharpness pretty quickly.
Now, this is one stat you don't have to worry too much about. In fact, you'll see a large number of Master Rank weapons with zero percent affinity. However, if you have to choose between two weapons that are extremely similar in every single way except one has 20% affinity and the other has nada, you have to go for 20% affinity as it relates to how often you'll hit critical. In case you have zero affinity, you can increase it via armor skills and Decorations.
Element can change the entire course of your fight. Every single monster you'll find out there has at least one element they are critically weak against and maybe several elements they are slightly bothered by. You'll find that almost every weapon has elemental damage like Fire, Water, Blast, Ice, Poison, Sleep and so on.
Check the Hunter's Notes to see weaknesses of monsters you have researched and you can forge weapons that takes advantage of their weaknesses.
***Bowguns are excluded from this attribution. They have a deviation stat instead. Deviation stat tells you how much your bullets will deviate (move away) from the cross-hairs.
terrible combate Y acabo de empezar no me imagino como será lo siguiente que me encuentre.
Recommended Combo List: "Dual Blades"
BASIC DEMON MODE COMBO
A basic Dual Blades attack combo that builds up your Demon Gauge while dealing damage. It takes a while to get the combo to the Demon Dance so only implement that move when the monster is not moving.
1. Demon Mode
2. Demon Fangs
3. Twofold Demon Slash
4. Sixfold Demon Slash
5. Blade Dance
RUSH ATTACK COMBO
A good combo to use when looking to close distance towards the monster. This keeps you close to the monster to deal the most damage. As much as possible, use this combo near the head or the tail.
1. Demon Mode
2. Demon Flurry Rush
3. Rising Slash
4. Left Roundslash
ATTACK COMBO WHEN MONSTER IS STATIONARY
When the monster is trapped, paralyzed, or knocked down, get into Archdemon mode and combo with your Demon Flurry move. Demon Flurry does not use up stamina and is great in dealing massive damage. Just be careful to keep your Demon Gauge up.
1. Demon Flurry Rush
2. Demon Flurry
ARCHDEMON MODE ATTACK COMBO
This combo hits the monster with amazing damage when done in Archdemon mode. It makes full use of your Demon Gauge but is best used when monster is not moving around and is staying still.
1. Demon Flurry Rush
2. Rising Slash
3. Double Slash
4. Double Slash Return Stroke
5. Circle Slash
Gather some ICE-RESISTANT Gear and get ready for ICEBORNE
Would you believe that Iceborne is an ice-themed expansion? While not every monster Capcom has revealed is ice-themed, many are. Currently in Monster Hunter: World, there is only one monster that inflicts ice damage: Legiana. Unless you’ve been hunting Legiana nonstop, chances are you don’t have a lot of great ice gear. Solve that problem and grab some ice resistant pieces before Iceborne.
If you have the time, farm some armor with ice resistance. You can grab some those parts from Legiana, Kushala Daora, and even Xeno’jiiva. Using these anti-ice armor types can completely nullify Iceblight — an obnoxious status effect afflicted by ice monsters in Monster Hunter: World that will likely carry over to Iceborne.
Iceborne will be tough, and you’ll need to be in top fighting condition when it drops. Your first few hunts in Iceborne probably won’t be the best place to practice a new weapon type or even master a weapon you’ve recently learned.
Before you get your hands on the expansion’s new monsters, make sure you’re completely comfortable with the weapon (or weapons) you want to hunt with.
GUIDE: All new WEAPON Moves & Abilities in Iceborne Part 3
11. CHARGE BLADE
The Charge Blade is more powerful than ever, allowing Hunters to cancel into the Savage Axe Slash, an upwards and backwards slash perfect for catching monsters by surprise. The Charge Blade also gains the new Power Axe mode, a powered-up form letting Hunters dish out more damage. After using a Savage Axe Slash, if you have at least one Phial, you'll go into Power Axe mode, which allows to deal far more damage while steadily draining your phials.
Playing off of the increased Slinger focus, you can now fire a Slinger Burst after guarding from an attack in Shield Form. Naturally, you can follow this up with other attacks to form a nice combo, such as downward slash to move forward and push back against a monster. Finally, there's the Clutch Claw integration, which lets you grapple onto a monster and attack for a brief time. With the Charge Blade, you'll get in a sword slash, followed by a buzzsaw-like attack down the monster, which is great for weakening and crippling specific targets.
The Bow has a potent addition to its arsenal called the Thousand Dragons. When you use this move, you fire EVERY bit of currently equipped Slinger ammo you have in a powerful, close-range blast. Obviously the more ammo you have the more effective this move is. There's also the Clutch Claw move, which allows you to grab on and slash a monster with one of your arrows. You then backflip off the beast and if your timing is right, fire another show into the spot you slashed moments ago.
The Bow is a light weapon, so this Clutch Claw attack will also cause monsters to drop Slinger ammo, perfect for fueling your next use of Thousand Dragons.
13. INSECT GLAIVE
In Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, you can use consume some Slinger ammo to power up your Kinsect, allowing you to gather two buffs before calling the Kinsect back. In doing so, gathering buffs is made a fair bit quicker. Your Kinsect gets a second buff depending on the kind of ammo consumed: if the ammo dropped from a monster, the Kinsect's power is increased while if it was ammo you picked up in the field, the Kinsect gets a stamina buff instead.
There's some full-on new moves too, with a Downward Stab while airborne, which is a flashy move that also marks the targeted spot for your Kinsect to follow up on. You can also use the Clutch Claw in the air, which grapples you on to the monster, allowing you to get in several spinning slashes before dropping down. This move will cause the monster to drop Slinger ammo.
14. HEAVY BOWGUN
For both the Heavy Bowgun and Light Bowgun, the main additions come in the form of mods. The Wyvernheart mod will have you deal more damage with follow-up hits with the Wyvernheart attack. The Wyvernsnipe mod adds a first-person aiming Special Scope with a nifty mechanic. When the reticle glows orange, it's the optimal range and attacks at that distance deal more damage. Quite helpfully, that include the Wyvernsnipe attack, which can now deal massive damage.
The Heavy Bowgun's Clutch Claw attack has your Hunter grab on and machine gun into the monster before hopping off, leaving a scarred, weakened target area.
15. LIGHT BOWGUN
Like with the Heavy Bowgun, you can swap between aiming your Bowgun and aiming your Clutch Claw. When you grapple on with the Clutch Claw, you'll do a backflip off the monster and embed a Wyvernblast into the targeted spot. This will naturally drop more Slinger ammo for your use. There's a new Evading Reload mod, which lets you spin your Light Bowgun and dodge to the side. There's another new mod that lets you fire the Wyvernblast forward instead of embedding it in the ground.
GUIDE: All new WEAPON Moves & Abilities in Iceborne Part 2
6. HUNTING HORN
The Hunting Horn gains a new spinning attack where you plant the Horn in the ground and spin it around rapidly. It plays a musical note and does extreme KO damage to anything it hits, so try targeting it towards a monster's head. Each time you use this attack, it adds another note to the Horn's reserve. There's a new attack song, the Impact Echo Wave but there's a neat trick to it: If your timing is right, you can queue up three Impact Echo Wave songs, which can be played back-to-back to some high damage output.
There's also a new Extended Health Recovery song, which is simple enough but it can help you and your time if you're close together and low on health. Like other weapons there is a Clutch Claw attack where you grab on to the monster and add a weak spot with a heavy hit from the Hunting Horn.
The Hammer retains its simplicity but with more tactical options for Hunters. You can now fire a Slinger Burst while charging your Hammer, leaving you less vulnerable and adding a nice combo opener. There's also a couple of different ways to grapple on to a monster. You can grapple after an uppercut with the Hammer that puts you in midair, performing a Flying Smash in the process. You can also grapple while rolling down a hill performing a Spinning Bludgeon. If your timing is right on the latter, you'll actually continue your spinning attack as your grapple on. Once grappled, you can attack normally.
Out of all the different weapons for Hunters to use, it appears the Gunlance has the least amount of new stuff to play around with. With that said, you can now use field-gathered Slinger ammo to fire the Wyrmstake Blast. It's similar to the Wyrmstake Cannon in effect except it uses all of your currently equipped Slinger ammo to fuel this powerful blast. This embeds a stake in the monster, which you can use to deal more damage with further attacks.
Naturally, you can also grapple on to a monster with the Clutch Claw, attacking with the Gunlance and dropping more Slinger ammo with can fuel further Wyrmstake Blasts.
The Lance hasn't been left out, with a new Guard stance that sees the Hunter stuck in one spot, able to rotate but not reposition. This new Guard instead allows you to fire a Slinger Burst, or you can swap to a regular Slinger shot. You can also use the Counter Claw, where you brace for impact and upon countering a hit, grapple onto the monster and begin attacking with your Lance. Naturally, you can also just grapple on normally, doing a heavy drill attack with your Lance and leaving a weakened, scarred spot on the monster to exploit
It also appears that the Lance can briefly assume a powered form of Guard Up, where for a few second you can block otherwise-unblockable attacks. This will require testing when the expansion releases.
10. SWITCH AXE
The Switch Axe gets some Axe Mode-specific moves, starting with the Heavy Slam. After some wild swings from to left to right and back again, a glow will build up. You can then trigger the Heavy Slam while simultaneously charging up the weapon's power. Instead of being left vulnerable while swinging your weapon about with wild abandon however, you can now use a Slinger burst to interrupt the combo, fire a blast and dodge backward, assuming you have Slinger ammo left. You can also now perform a Fade Slash, slashing with your weapon while dodging back, so there's far more tactical retreat options.
As with all weapons, there's some Clutch Claw-specific moves. In Sword Mode, when using Element Discharge, you can use a Claw shot, grapple onto the monster and attack. If you go into the Amped state while using this move, you can finish the Element Discharge on the monster.
