  3. Why are so many of the weapon designs still such garbage?

Was hoping that iceborne would bring some uniqueness back to the weapons, and I was happy when I saw Blizzarioths back. So it is an improvement in some regards.

... but a bunch of these upgrade paths still are extremely plain, awful designs that are virtually the same across multiple weapon trees, with the only difference being some monster parts haphazardly attached. To make things worse, some of the classic weapon designs got replaced with generics too, like the Brachydios dual blades.

Has anyone from the team working on MHW at least talked about weapon designs to give some insight on why weapon designs suck so much?

What's weird is that they created a unique design for the Barioth IG which it never had before (could be wrong?). Yet didn't bother with the other Barioth weapons which they already have the design for.

Easily the worst thing about world, sad to see they've kept it up.

Apparently 13 million sales isn't enough to hire more weapon modellers?

So weird that they're all over the place with it too.

So it seems like for each weapon, there is AT LEAST one per element that has a unique design. I may be wrong, but that's what I'm starting to notice for my main (DB).

My biggest disappointment, other than Spectral Demolishers getting downright demolished, is that I've essentially been stuck with two water choices; ugly ass Jyura Hatchets and the beautiful but dismal Holy Sabers.

I saw Namielle and got a little wet (pun intended) thinking about what the DBs from it would look like, only to find out that they skipped out on making them altogether.

So it's not just an issue with bad redesigns, but some weapons get the total shaft when they barely had much in that department to begin with.

I have to ignore my own plights for a moment however and give attention to the ultimate insult, the greatest crime and that is; Glavenus GS. I don't play GS, but even I'm mad that the Glav GS is generic garbage with the materials slapped on when the classic look is so iconic.

Yep it makes zero sense to make the GS look bad from a creature who's tail is based on a GS.

Wait until you reach end game with custom augment you will see why some weapons have garbage design.

Already know about that however it doesn't change much when it comes to looks. They probably did it because of the custom augmentation though.
