Fans of Capcom’s upcoming Nintendo Switch game, Monster Hunter Rise, The long sword is used more than any other weapon in the game demo.
As early as January, Capcom announced that the game will receive a free “limited time” demo, allowing players to “try before buying” in the latest long-term series of games.
The Rise demo arrived on the Switch eShop (weighing about 1.6GB) on January 8 and can be played until February 1. It turns out that during that time, Capcom managed to collect some very interesting information about the habits of players in monster slaughter. title.
In the four missions in the demo, all 14 weapon types can be used. Although all items can be selected, it seems that most players tend to use long swords.
According to a tweet from a Japanese developer, 19.1% of players chose the giant blade, accounting for almost one-fifth of all players. It does make sense; it is very suitable for beginners and can stab beasts from a (relatively safe) distance.
Another weapon that is beneficial to swordsmen, the Great Sword, ranks second: 9.7% of players are equipped with weapons for this purpose. Of course, this is a more technical method, but if you get a good blow with a full charge, the big sword may cause devastating damage.
Ranked third is the hunting horns that the game gives buffs and are friendly to Bard. 9.6% of players were knocked down to shoot down some unfriendly beasts before entering the shrine ruins.
