Sword & Shield

A perfect balance of offense and defense, the Sword & Shield allows you to strike fast while also maintaining the ability to block attacks by long pressing on your device. A great starting weapon that hunters have relied on for years, the Sword & Shield also have a Special Skill “Perfect Rush Combo” that can pummel monsters with powerful consecutive attacks.

Great Sword

Big monsters sometimes require big weapons—and they don’t come bigger than the Great Sword. Hold nothing back and attack monsters with the full fury of a larger-than-life lethal blade– a long press unleashes a powerful charged slash. The Great Sword Special Skill, “True Charged Slash” uses all of your strength to attack monsters with an even more powerful slash that deals massive damage.

Long Sword

The Long Sword allows for speedy and precise continuous attacks. Attacking monsters charge up a Spirit Gauge that increases attack damage, but if you take damage you’ll lose the Spirit Gauge. The Special Skill “Spirit Helm Breaker” causes a large amount of damage with a jumping and slashing attack from the sky.


Do you want to just hit big things with equally big weapons? Forget the precision of blades, the Hammer is a blunt force weapon that will surely leave an impression on any monster you use it to bash… especially if that monster was bashed on the head. The Special Skill “Spinning Bludgeon” continually deals damage while you swing the hammer around before ending in a powerful upper attack.

Light Bowgun

Stay a safe distance away from the fray and unleash a long-range barrage that’ll make even a Barroth think twice about messing with you. The bullets differ depending on the bowgun, and picking bullets that are effective against specific monsters will make your attacks even stronger. The Special Skill “Wyvernblast Counter” fires a powerful bullet that causes a large explosion and can deal great damage to monsters.


A weapon that excels at medium-range attacks. By long pressing the screen, it allows the player to charge up to four levels, each level unleashing arrows with different types. The Special Skill “Dragon Piercer” uses all of the Hunter’s might to release an arrow that can pierce through anything, yielding significant damage to monsters when used.


This weapon allows you to guard by performing a Hold Action. It boasts very high defense and has a long reach. Performing a Counter-Thrust at just the right timing allows you to guard against monster attacks so you can inflict high damage with minimal vulnerability.

Special Skill: Dash Attack—a lethal, full-throttle thrust that penetrates through all defenses.

Dual Blades

This weapon hits quickly and boasts great mobility, allowing you to launch attacks in quick succession. Entering Demon Mode switches up the actions and enhances attack performance. It also has its own stamina gauge. Stamina gets used up while activated, ending Demon Mode once it has run out.

Special Skill: Heavenly Blade Dance (SP)—a series of fatal attacks that soar high into the sky, slicing through monsters.

Charge Blade

This weapon type has two modes: the highly maneuverable sword and the high-powered axe. Charge energy while in Sword Mode and then use it in Axe Mode to inflict greater damage. While in Axe Mode, which combines the sword and shield, use Super Amped Element Discharge (SP) to unleash that energy in a powerful attack.


Get ready to wield your own Gunlance! This new weapon type combines the robustness of a lance with some mighty firepower. Experience the sheer force of its Wyvern’s Fire, a high-power attack, and Burstfire, an attack that unleashes a barrage of bullets.

Wyvern’s Fire is a Special Skill that lets forth a powerful artillery shot developed using the most advanced technology available.
