"Monster Hunter Now" represents Niantic's mobile adaptation of Capcom's challenging Action-RPG series. Initially, players are limited to accessing only one type of weapon, namely the sword and shield.
How to Craft/Forge Weapons in Monster Hunter Now
At the outset of Monster Hunter Now, players are initially tasked with completing several mission-like objectives.
- To do so, click on the picture of your equipped weapon at the bottom of the main screen next to the player icon.
- In the Equipment menu, press on the weapon tab to see the weapons that can currently be crafted.
- If players have the required materials, they can craft the weapon and then equip it.
How to Unlock More Weapon Types in Monster Hunter Now
Once players achieve a specific milestone in the campaign, they can forge five additional types of weapons. The greatsword is the first weapon that players unlock as soon as they reach this point.
The remaining types of weapons (longsword, hammer, bow, and light bowgun) are simultaneously unlocked when players of Monster Hunter Now complete the urgent quest featuring the Great Girros.
The greatsword and the hammer are excellent choices for hunters who wish to focus on slow, powerful attacks to easily target specific body parts of monsters.
Monster Hunter Now is available as a free download for mobile devices.
