This is an article about the best starter weapon to use in Monster Hunter Rise (MH Rise). If you want to know which weapons are best for beginners especially if you are new to the series, read on!
Perfect for aggressive gameplay
Very high DPS
Very easy to get into and has high damage ceiling
We consider the Long Sword as the strongest weapon in the game. Coupled with how it is very easy to get into, it's the perfect beginner weapon.
It has a very long reach and powerful combos that can dish out tons of damage. Also, it has many counterattack opportunities that allow you to go full aggressive against a monster.
If you are a fledgling hunting that is not afraid to go toe-to-toe with a monster, we recommend the Long Sword!
Easy to play melodies for instant buffs
Recommended for all hunters
Has blunt damage for stunning monsters
This weapon went from being one of the most complicated to a simple weapon in the Monster Hunter Rise (MH Rise) hence we recommend this weapon for beginners!
Melodies are now automatically played by executing the same notes consecutively. You don't have to stay somewhere safe just to play melodies!
Recommended for hunters who likes full combos and high mobility
Very fast attacks
Applies Element and Status Effects against monsters effectively
The Dual Blades is for beginners that like full combo and high mobility weapons. This weapon has a very simple gameplay loop: Demon Mode -> Attack -> Archdemon Mode -> Attack Again. Archdemon Mode unlocks a plethora of new combos while increasing your attack damage!
This weapon is also the King of Element Attacks because it applies elemental damage more often than other weapons. Make sure to use elemental Dual Blades with the element that a monster is weak to!
More mobile than Heavy Bowgun
Puts you in a relatively safe distance
Recommended for hunters who want to try out ranged weapons
If you want to start early with ranged weapons, the Light Bowgun is a perfect starting point. It is very mobile and is relatively safer because it attacks from a distance. Though we recommend the Light Bowgun, it is still a ranged weapon with a very steep learning curve so expect to be overwhelmed by all its mechanics.

Player list provides all of their equipment information. But honestly that doesn't really matter mid hunt. Don't add DPS trackers. It gets really annoying hunting with someone thats just shouting out the damage numbers all hunt
