The Monster Hunter: World beta recently took place earlier this month, and after it had concluded Capcom sent out a web survey to players, asking them to list select weapons that they used during the trial. After the results had concluded, Capcom released a bunch of information, including the top weapons used, over on the game’s official Twitter account.

While the official Twitter account might not be in English, the good folks over at Siliconera have translated the tweets pertaining to the weapons, and judging by the results, it seems like a lot of players really love big swords. The eight most used weapons in the Monster Hunter: World beta are as follows:

#8. (Tie) Charge Blade and Hammer – 35.7%

#7. Switch Axe – 36.2%

#6. Bow – 38.3$

#5. Heavy Bowgun – 38.4%

#4. Insect Glaive – 40.2%

#3. Dual Blades – 43%

#2. Long Sword – 49.8%

#1. Great Sword – 51.1%

For fans who might have missed out on the initial beta, it’s important to remember that a second beta testing will be available for all players starting tomorrow and running through December 26. For more information on the game itself, make sure to check out our preview of Monster Hunter: World:

The action is the biggest upgrade in Monster Hunter: World as it feels significantly more fluid than in previous games. As I attacked the monster’s tail, I had to make sure to dodge away from his attacks. It was a pretty easy battle overall, which was helped by the fact that I had other human teammates. They were able to distract the creature while I kept digging into him with my sword.

After we had dealt enough damage, the creature tried to run away in order to regain some of its health. I wasn’t about to let this last longer than it had to, though, so I sheathed my sword and ran after the creature. I followed the Great Jagras into a cave-like area, which would end up being the location of our final encounter. He didn’t find the time to heal up, so the circumstance and momentum of battle was on my side.

After a few minutes of combat, my team had ended up victorious. The Great Jagras had fallen, and we got to collect the spoils of victory before the game kicked me out of the demo. It was a relatively short look at the action since I found the creature early on, and it only lasted about 10 minutes. Regardless, it was enough of a taste after what I saw at E3.

Monster Hunter: World is set to release January 26, 2018 worldwide for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
