PostSubject: Possible Switch-Axe spin-off?   Sat Oct 01, 2011 7:26 pm

First topic message reminder :

As you may know, many weapon classes(LS, HH, etc.) are spin-offs of other classes. The Switch Axe is one of the few that has no spin-off. With Gen 4 coming, we could expect a new weapon. So, do you think it will be a brand new weapon, or a switch axe spinoff, like, say, a Switch-Sword, or something? Post your ideas.

I couldn't really see a switch axe spin-off. Sorry.
The thing about lances and gunlances is that the gunlance is based
off the lance, which is a weapon I see in real life, though not applied
in a monster hunter way. I can't really say the same for hammers and
hunting horns, but still, they take a bludgeon, and they make it a musical one.

So you're talking about something that by hitting a monster in a certain order and way, will heal you and give you attack buffs... and you believe that this is possible in real life? wow...

Any weapons possible if the military would try to make it.

Spin off on Switch axe there is only 9 models of SA in tri and about 12 in P3rd these weapons are some of the hardest for the Capcom to make ,

but it sure sounds like this forum wants Soul Caliber Weapons in Monster Hunter so im gonna be the first to say we need Tira and her Ring Blades!

But to bring us back to topic i dont see where the weapons are spin offs of each other,
What i would like to see is Monster Hunter 5 where you can go to all the different worlds and get any armor and any weapon that ever existed including the bonus and special , you could chose cha cha or cats , fight for and with any village and upgrade the graphics just a bit from tri! and for crying out loud put it on the PS3

Tira's Ring Blade is far to character specific. The only other time I've heard of it being used would be Motonari Mori in Sengoku Basara. Or maybe Ding Feng or Sun Shang Xiang in Dynasty Warriors.

That Monster Hunter 5 thing sound kind of like Monster Hunter HD collection, just with interchangeable data between games on the disk.

I dont think its to specific cause you can get Solid Snake in p3rd as well as the Boss, so having her as a armor set would be cool, but then again mabey if we had a mash up monster hunter where you could get other characters from other games i think Kos-mos would be a cool choice,

Spinning off weapons would be cool more of a mixed use sort of weapon
I like SA and LS mainly cause speed vs range vs power is good thou sometimes the SA it to slow so that's why i primarily use LS.

I really like how you can get a giant chainsaw in portable 3rd but if you are a DS you can get 2 smaller ones!

Kinda liked the idea of a longsword/whip...or maybe just a whip.

The whip could be a medium-range weapon with a focus on causing frequent flinching or on adding status effects, perhaps with serrated segments along the length of the cord. There could be different attacks, such as lashing as well as snapping, the latter of which would cause a stun effect much like a sonic bomb on the Yian Kut-Ku or Quropeco...or perhaps make a monster wary of approaching like Jaggi when holding a torch.

There could also be a binding move where the whip latches onto a limb and constricts, being able to restrict movement in smaller monsters and break the wound spots on larger ones. It could also have a capability for the hunter to 'pull' to create more damage, like a reversed range/damage effect; the farther away you get from the monster while constricting, the higher damage that is caused. It would be interesting, because with present weapons the idea is that you want to be as close as possible to deal the most damage, whereas with a whip, it would be the opposite.

I often think about what sorts of new weapon types might fit in the Monster Hunter series, but there really aren't many new ideas that seem feasible. Then again, the insect staff combo weapon is so zany I don't think anyone would have called it. Heck, if someone had typed up the description of the "insect staff" online I would have wrote it off as bad fanfiction and moved on, but.... it looks good in motion. It's the giant insect pet part that makes the weapon so zany, after all. A staff/naginata/pike/halberd/glaive kinda weapon itself is definitely in bounds by itself.

At first I was kinda rolling my eyes at people suggesting we run around with Ivy's sword whip, but after the insect staff... I think anything's game. I just really wish we'd stop trying to invent weapons by making one weapon morph into another. That was fine for the axe I guess, but for variety's sake... no more of those, I hope. You like whips? Make a whip/weighted chain class. No need to rip off Soul Calibur at every turn.

I want the single sword and the dual bladed weapon from this:
Spoiler:
 

imo more weapons the better.
What this game my lack in content (face it, there's GOING to be a G version), it can make up for it with more playstyles/weapons.

I hope everyone who posted whip ideas is aware of Monster Hunter Orage. Go read it, you'll see...

Still, the 'Operating Insect rod' is kinda ridiculous, even by MH standards. I mean, can you imagine sic'ing Bnahabra or Vespoids on a Rathalos? Or hell, OTHER Neopterons?! That is some kinda wack.

But seriously, sword-chucks yo.

I would have to second nun chucks of some kind
I would like some kind of spin off of boomerangs as well.
I mean i know you can throw them in some of the games but some that are really effective as a major weapons class. It could have single class for low rank and double or triple for high rank , It could really add to the gunner class since if you aint a gunner there is little reason to buy weak armor. And if they took ammo to do effects that would be very cool.

I think this is a good place for ideas on anime giant boomerang combat:

Wait, nevermind. I remember it being more boomerang-y. It's mostly just poor-looking spells :/

Yeah, that would be great if this was that weird looking MH rip-off MMO which has magic, NOT RaiderZ though.

EDIT: It's called Hunter Blade
