Somehow I’ve played Monster Hunter: World for about 12 hours already. I feel like I haven’t even scratched the surface of the game, but time seems to pass by so quick while on the hunt. I started my adventure using the Long Sword, but everyone uses the Long Sword and I wanted something a little flashier. Last night I tried out the Switch Axe.
I am and always will be a sword user, so the thought of using an axe gave me some hesitation. However, I also love big meaty hits and quick gameplay. As a bonus the Switch Axe changes into a sword! With elemental damage.
I know there have been a lot of Monster Hunter: World posts on the blog, but the game is so big and there is so much to write about. Brian has fallen in love with the Hammer, Chase has been killing monsters with the Charge Blade, and I believe Ian has been using the Bow with great success.
Here are the combos for the Switch Axe, this is mostly for me so I can refer back to this page while I am playing the game.
The best part is the sword combo during an opening. You unleash a flurry of blast and then stick the sword in the monster’s face and expelled all the built up energy. Here is a video of me doing just that to a Great Jargas’ face. We wont that fight.
I’ll try and upload that to YouTube later today.
