Here is an overview of each weapon, via Capcom:
Overwhelming, devastating power. The Great Sword delivers meaty chops with incredible force. Charge its attacks for even more damage!
“Power Sheathe” is a silkbind attack comprised of a quick Wirebug-assisted dash and a sheathing motion that boosts your attack for a short time.
Mighty, transformative force. The Switch Axe boasts advanced technology to deliver multiple options:
- Axe Form – Fluid motion and hefty hits.
- Sword Form – Quick powered-up strikes.
Phial effects activated by the sword now also persist in axe form.
“Invincible Gambit” is a silkbind attack that fortifies the hunter, making them immune to flinching or being knocked back by even the fiercest of attacks.
