The best weapon, according to votes from players of the Monster Hunter: World (MHW), is the light bowgun.
According to the poll on February 7 by altema.jp, an MHW wiki, the light bowgun surpassed the dual blades (2nd) and charge blade (3rd) in votes, which earned it the title of best weapon.
The light bowgun has been selected as an SS-ranked weapon, along with the greatsword, dual blades, and charge blade. It is also an SS rank weapon alongside dual blades and the bow in the multi-play mode, making itself the best weapon thus far.
This is due to the high efficiency of the “slicing shot”, which has recently gone viral among players. Its mobility is far superior to the heavy bowgun (5th) which can also use the same shot and is excellent for exploding bombs as well. The weapon is favored by players in multi-play mode as well, even though the shot does friendly fire damage to team members.
On the other hand, the least favored weapon selected by players is the sword and shield. It received the lowest rank, C, in both solo and multi-play modes. The hunting horn barely beat the sword and shield by earning a B rank in multi-play mode.
Below are the weapon rankings according to player votes:
