Best Weapon

Without doubt the best weapon in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak is the Great Sword, this weapon which has devastating power will allow you to stay in the fight longer than any other because regardless of how many slashes you land without charging, you will out-damage most other weapons. The Great Sword is particularly effective when you have the new Strongarm Stance Switch Skill, a technique that uses Ironsilk to reinforce both your arms and weapon temporarily to fend off attacks. If used while charging, you can quickly parry an attack and then unleash a fierce onslaught afterwards. The downside of the Great Sword is its limited mobility.
