Capcom releases a trio of new trailers for its upcoming entry into the long-running Monster Hunter series, Monster Hunter: World, that shows off 14 types of in-game weapons that players can wield.

The three videos demonstrate that there’s a vast range of unique weapons for players to choose from, whether they’re new to the hunt or already a seasoned veteran.  Each weapon type has a different overall playstyle and characteristics which are showcased in the videos.  Swords and blades can be useful in cutting damage and executing fast paced attacks, impact weapons like hammers can cause high damage and stun opponents, while ranged weapons such as bowguns allow you to attack beasts from afar.  If the hunt is too overwhelming, support style weapons can be very useful such as the hunting horn which plays melodies that provide buffs for the team.

Depending on the type of foe and quest goals, it may prove useful to change gear mid-quest back at base camp. Players are never locked into one weapon type so they should keep different options on hand.
