The Bow has limited Monster Hunter Rise combos available compared to some other weapons, but pay attention to the Charging Step because it allows you to dodge and deal damage at the same time, which is a game changer.

Charge Blade

The Charge Blade has two different modes, Axe and Sword, which means two sets of possible move combos. This is an incredibly complex weapon to use but if you can get the hang of it then firstly, kudos to you, and secondly, you’ll have a lot of combos to memorise.

Dual Blades

The Dual Blades are very limited with their available combos making them a great weapon for a beginner, because they hit incredibly fast and can deal a lot of damage.  It’s easy to chain moves together with the Dual Blades too, especially when in Demon Mode.

Great Sword

When you just want to hit as hard as you can, the Great Sword is for you. It’s slow to use but can deal some impressive damage and has an array of combos to test out.

Gunlance

The Gunlance has two forms of attack; regular and “shelling”, which is when the tip of the weapon explodes. As a result, the combos are split into two sections. Note that shelling attacks ignore the defense stat of whatever you’re fighting and deal a set amount of damage.

Regular combos:

Hammer

Another weapon that hits hard, the Hammer is a simple weapon to use but it’s important to get the timings right because of how slow it is. The combos aren’t too difficult thankfully, but remember to charge the hammer whenever you get the opportunity mid-fight.

Heavy Bowgun

The slower but harder hitting one of the two bowguns, the Heavy Bowgun is much less mobile and has simple, but effective attacks. The type of ammo you bring is the most important thing here, rather than which attacks you use.

Hunting Horn

The Hunting Horn is the ultimate support weapon when playing online, but it’s changed slightly from previous Monster Hunter games. All Hunting Horns have the same note combination and effect this time, which never used to be the case, and self-improvement buffs are rewarded automatically by playing the same notes twice.

Insect Glaive

The Insect Glaive is a unique weapon in that it can fire special insects, each with different abilities. These add another dimension to combat so as a result, this isn’t a newbie-friendly weapon.

Lance

Another weapon with some simpler combos, the Lance is a slower weapon with impressive reach. High Thrust is the best basic attack to use against bigger targets, while Mid Thrust is the one you want for small enemies.

Light Bowgun

The slightly less impressive but more mobile counterpart to the Heavy Bowgun, the Light Bowgun works in a very similar manner. Make sure you’re constantly moving and targeting enemy weak spots since you can dodge much easier.

Long Sword

The Long Sword is a decent choice for beginners, because it’s simple to use but hard to master. You can chain together all sorts of attacks, especially the Iai Slash/Iai Spirit Slash moves.

Switch Axe

The Switch Axe can change between two different forms – as you’d expect from the name – which means there are a lot of possibilities, so it’s not recommended to take this one straight out of the starting blocks.

Sword & Shield

Like the Long Sword, the Sword & Shield has a lot of potential but is still easy to pick up and use. Experiment with all these different combos to find the chain of moves that works for you – and don’t forget about guarding.
