Find a Weapon You Like
Tips and Tricks for Monster Hunter World Beginners
If there’s one thing you absolutely must do before setting off on your adventure in Monster Hunter World, it’s finding a weapon type that speaks to you and suits your play style. The combat in Monster Hunter World can be a little clunky, and if you’re not using a weapon that you like, you’re not going to enjoy the combat very much. And considering that every quest and assignment basically revolves around combat, this is a pretty important tip to keep in mind.
At the start of the game, when you get access to your room, talk to the housekeeper and go to the training area. Here, you’ll be able to experiment with every weapon type in the game. The more beginner-friendly ones include the sword and shield, dual blades, and long sword. These are slightly faster weapons that are easy to pick up and learn. Once you’ve gotten a feel for the combat, try the more interesting ones like the bow gun and gunlance.
I also recommend the insect glaive, which attacks quickly and has a very useful move set that lets you do mounted attacks if you time it right.
