A very open-ended DotW this time! Nominate your favourite piece of equipment (purely in terms of looks) from Monster Hunter Freedom Unite and give your reasons. Hopefully I'll find time to even add a few of them to this main blog. Below are a few of my personal nominations...

MHFU

I can't remember any amazing looking GS in MHFU off the top of my head, but I've always had a soft-spot for cool looking if impractical elemental Greatswords.

A really cool looking SnS - like holding an actual flame. Wouldn't want to actually use it though, scarily low affinity.

Certainly one of the most unique-looking weapons. I love (/hate) the sound effects when you swing it, as well. Might be biased because Khezu is one of my favourite monsters, though.

I wouldn't ever use it (because it's a Hunting Horn in MHFU and why would you) but you know, I don't think it's a bad design. Bizarre localised name, though...

It's a Lance trying to be a trident, made of a gigantic dragon. And it's a lovely shade of blue.

  • Ultra-sleek looking, which is odd for such a crude 'poke, explode' weapon. So glad it's back in 3rd Gen, though.

Weapon07

An ultra-classy looking Bow that unfortunately is outshone by Daimyo's Bows in terms of damage. Oh well.
