Monster Hunter World weapon tiers aren't actually run by the developers at Capcom at all, as they're instead a chance for the community themselves to vote on the best weapons in the game. In this Monster Hunter World weapon tier list, we'll be walking you through the rankings of the weapons that the MHW player base has determined to be the very best, divided into solo and co-op weapons.

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 Monster Hunter World, 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 Monster Hunter World.

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.

    There is a lot of misinformation in this article. Most importantly is that the max rank is not 100, many people are already past this rank. While I'm not 100% certain as I've not achieved the rank myself, the max rank in previous titles was 999 and it is likely the same in this one. Also, while you have to reach certain milestones in the main story to unlock some armor/weapons, you do not have to defeat a monster to unlock the ability to see its armor/weapon sets, just get the correct parts from it out in the field or as a reward for breaking/slicing parts off of it during an expedition.

    This article is full of incomplete and incorrect information. I'd make a list, but it would be way too long.

    If you want useful information on the topic, go elsewhere.

    Whoever wrote this "article" is an idiot. Building an entire set, while aesthetically pleasing, is a horrible way to build for any weapon. You need to build around what skills you want if you want the true best armor for a weapon/build. Do not listen to this "article."

    I’m sorry this post is probably old but I’m a little shook because a lot of this is false info.... hr 100 is not that max what so ever it never has been
    ... Who told you only assigned quest give you hr points that is the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard when talking about monster hunter ... everything gets added up
    now I believe the best way to get hr points is from farming tempered elder dragons or investigations with multiple monsters/tempered monsters

    Teostra and Nergigante have been seen together before considering they turf war. I believe it's triggered by going over a certain time on the quest you're on, but I'm not 100% positive
