Monster Hunter World: Iceborne guide — Full list of new weapons and armor

Recently, Capcom announced that Monster Hunter: World - Iceborne was launching on September 6. Iceborne is an upcoming expansion which takes players to a new region covered with snow. As expected, there's a new mystery to unravel, with even more dangerous "Elder Dragons" to hunt.

We were able to see and play the game at E3 and came away wholly impressed. Iceborne truly feels almost more like a sequel than a mere expansion, adding an all-new end game to uncover, tons of new monsters, and of course, piles of new armor and weapon sets. Here's the full list of everything shown so far. We'll update it as more becomes available.

Hopefully more weapons will be revealed in the future. The Clutch Claw, and new crafted weapon styles look like worthy additions to the arsenal.

The story of Iceborne starts after the conclusion of the events of the base game. The Research Commission that initially tasked you with going to the New World has noticed "very unusual Legiana behavior." They want you to investigate and get to the bottom of this. Chasing this mystery leads us to a remote part of the map where extreme weather conditions require special outfits and gear. Iceborne is supposed to add the largest region to the game "so far." That phrase is curious because it seems like that company wants to leave future expansions a possibility.

  • Both Weapons are already present in the game - The Great Sword being, well... The Great Sword ( Buster Type ) and the Tachi being the Long Sword ( Odachi Type ) - So nothing new about them other than the usual Monster specific graphic variant. The Clutch Claw doesn't qualify as a weapon by itself as it's usable with other weapons, as seen in the Great Sword video, so it looks more like it'll replace or augment the current mechanic that allows us to swing Tarzan style in selected locations with a more Attack on Titan like method to close the gape to a prey.
  • Updated the article to reflect that :) I do wonder if they'll add new weapon types, but the franchise already has a ton. Not familiar with the previous games much, are there any from older games they could reintroduce?
