MHP3rd Switch Axe Tutorial (MHWikia Edition)
July 21, 2011
***REMEMBER TO WATCH IN HIGH QUALITY!***
Welcome to yet another episode of Artemis_Paradox's MHA!
This time I will be telling you about the magnificent Switch Axe and all the revolves around them. See the description below:
- The Switch Axe -
Switch Axes are fairly balanced high-powered cutting weapons that offer reasonable mobility and good adaptability.
Also referred to as SA's, these weapons are commonly misunderstood by players who decide to use them. The most common problem known within the multiplayer community of the 3rd generation Monster Hunters is the endless spamming of upswings and other general disruptive behaviour such as tripping without any compassion at all.
This video explains (aside from the controls) how to prevent such inconveniences from happening. The gist of it? Hold the analog button. Something you've been doing since the first moment you started the game to begin with!
Anyhow, back to the weapon itself, Switch Axes can be used for a wide variety of purposes. Thanks to good strenght and reasonable speed with the ability to endlessly combo, players can do anything from tripping to tail cutting to health chipping to stagger locking.
Given its GS - Lance-ish reach they're also ideal for reaching high body parts such as the tails of larger monsters, as well as fighting airbourne opponents.
- Final Words -
I hope that both new and experienced alike can learn from and enjoy this video. ;)
May you have questions, do not hesitate to ask them!
