As someone who chose the bow after trying the other weapons, I’m kinda surprised it ranks that high. Who’d have thought everyone wanted to be Green Arrow or Legolas when taking down monsters instead of being a badass with a big sword, no?

Surprised at the results? What’s your weapon of choice in Monster Hunter World? If you’re on the fence on whether to pick it up, make sure to read our review, and see why I had this to say about, “If you like going up against bosses in games, and find that thrilling, then think of Monster Hunter World as Boss Fight: The Game. It’s one compelling boss fight after another, that’s sprinkled in with loot, crafting, and other RPG nuances that make the journey exciting even after the numerous missions. Monster Hunter World is one monster you’ll want to take home and nurture.”
