Monster Hunter World Weapon Tiers - All the Best Tier Weapons in Monster Hunter World

This is our guide to the most recent weapon tiers in Monster Hunter World.

There are fourteen different weapon types in Monster Hunter World, and sometimes the player base will come together to vote on the rankings of the each type of weapon. In this Monster Hunter World weapons tier list, we'll be providing you with said rankings, detailing the results of the latest public vote on weapons in Capcom's huge game.

If you need anything else at all relating to the massive game of Monster Hunter World, including how to quickly track down a monster using the Scout Flies, as well as how to successfully capture any monster in the game using a Shock Trap and Tranq Bomb, head over to our Monster Hunter World guides walkthrough hub.

Monster Hunter World Weapon Tier List Guide

We're not entirely sure what the schedule is for taking the weapon tier survey for MHW, but it appears to roughly tie in with new patches for the game. Just below, we'll be revealing the weapon tier list for Monster Hunter World, which be believe are the latest at the time of writing.

Solo Weapon Tier List:

  • Tier SSS - Dual Blades, Light Bowgun, Long Sword
  • Tier SS - Charge Blade, Great Sword, Switch Axe, Heavy Bowgun
  • Tier S - Lance, Gunlance, Bow
  • Tier A - Hammer, Insect Glaive, Sword & Shield
  • Tier B - Hunting Horn

Co-Op Weapon Tier List:

  • Tier SSS - Long Sword, Dual Blades, Bow
  • Tier SS - Light Bowgun, Heavy Bowgun, Charge Blade, Insect Glaive
  • Tier S - Hammer, Gunlance, Switch Axe, Great Sword
  • Tier A - Lance, Hunting Horn
  • Tier B - Sword & Shield

And there you have it, this is the latest list of weapons in Monster Hunter World, ranked by the community themselves. It makes sense that the Hunting Horn would be the lowest ranked weapon for solo play, and the Long Sword deserves its position atop the rankings for both categories.

It’s also somewhat surprising that the Insect Glaive isn’t rated higher for solo play, given that it can be used to easily dodge a monster’s attacks and mount the monster in the process. The Hammer could also be rated slightly higher, given its devastating charge attack abilities, and the fact that it can stun virtually any monster in the game if you land a charge attack to the head of the monster.

As we mentioned previously, we'll be updating this list whenever we come across any new surveys that are taken in the wake of changeups to the way weapons work in MHW.

Now that we’re all done with our weapons tier list guide for Monster Hunter World, why not continue ahead to our additional guides on the game, including our full weapons guide, as well as our complete armor guide page.
