Punch A Monster So Hard It Gets Dizzy With Monster Hunter GG’s New Weapons

By Eugene . March 28, 2014 . 3:01pm


While there are lots of awesome weapons in the Monster Hunter series, none look quite as stylish as the upcoming tonfas in Monster Hunter Frontier: GG. These weapons, called “Senryuu Kon,” will make their debut in an upcoming update.


Fighting in melee against a gigantic series of monsters might be suicidal for some, but with the Senryuu Kon it might be giving yourself a purposeful handicap. We’ve previously seen a hint that you can use the piston-powered, tri-form weapon to vault into the air and land air combos on foes, and the latest promotional video shows it off several times. These piston-tonfas will grow or shrink depending on your choice of attack or defense, becoming incredibly versatile weapons despite the melee “penalty”.



Some of this versatility translates into becoming a jumping monkey God by blast-digging into the ground to stop being thrown back as well as those multiple aerial maneuvers. Clacking the weapon together also allows players to practically shrug off attacks with well-timed blocks.


Monster Hunter Frontier: GG will see these weapons introduced in its mega updated on the 23rd of April, alongside a graphics overhaul for the PC version.

    “Senryuu Kon”
    Sounds like Shoryuken or Shinryuken.

    Anyways, this type weapon reminds me of Yang’s Dual Ranged Shot Gauntlets from RWBY.

  • SetzerGabbiani

    If these are in 4U, they will definitely be my 3rd main weapon.

  • Namuro

    Man, the air-combo looks great, you can even change direction mid-air. Then there’s the charge-stun and the Charge Axe-like attack at the end, not to mention the evasive maneuver moves. This weapon seems to take all the best features of other weapons and roll them into one!

    I seriously, seriously want this in 4G!!

    Also, there are other video on MHF-G Channel on YouTube that demonstrates the moves in more details like this one.

    Woah haven’t seen anything more OP since the reveal of the switch axe and it’s unstoppable barrage swing if using dash drink.

  • MaskedHero99

    This coming to America right?? Jus confirming

    • Josh Hanes

      Only Monster Hunter confirmed coming west so far is 4U for the 3DS in early 2015. The Vita version of Frontier G does not even have a fixed release date in Japan. I am personally hoping Nintendo pushes Capcom to get 4U on the Wii U since I am not much of a portable gamer myself.
