Monster Hunter now is a new game from location-based games King, Niantic. Think of it like Pokémon Go, but instead of catching the monsters you find roaming around the world, you go and fight them with a sword or a big hammer. Collect trophies from your victories and turn them into all-new kit.

Where Are The Rest Of Them?

No Dual Blades? No Gunlance? There’s no Insect Glaive?! Don’t panic! If your favorite weapon is missing, your parting from it shouldn’t be forever. The official site states that more weapons are on their way, so you have something to look forward to in future updates.

How do Our Tiers Work?

Our tiers run from best to worst and rank the general usefulness of the weapon.

  • S Tier: OP. The best of the best. Get one as soon as you can.
  • A Tier: Not as exceptional as S, but definitely very good. Will help you get through content with no problems.
  • B Tier:  Solid and dependable, but not exceptional. They won’t let you down, but you might switch them out later.
  • C Tier: Below average. Only useful in niche situations.
  • D Tier: Avoid like the plague.

How Did We Decide on the Rankings?

We pull our ranks from our own gameplay, and from community response. Tier lists aren’t always totally objective, and your playstyle might suit things we rank lower! So, feel free to argue with us in the comments.
