To fulfil your destiny and carry on the legacy of your grandfather, you’ll need to master when to use each of the three attack types with all of the different kinds of monsters.

A little extra information removes a lot of the guesswork from your battle strategy, and lets you focus on building your Kinship gauge, priming your skills, or lining up a paintball to force a retreat.

Also, beware of a mild spoiler warning, since the list contains the names of monsters that appear all throughout the game.

Monster Hunter Stories 2 Attack Type Weaknesses

On the surface, Monster Hunter Stories 2’s battle system is simple. In true rock-paper-scissors fashion, each one of the three attack types beats one other while also having one weakness.

It’s easy to forget the battle triangle, so remember:

  • Power beats Technical
  • Technical beats Speed
  • Speed beats Power

As you progress through each battle, some monsters will switch up their attack type when they’re angry or preparing a special move. In these instances, alter your approach accordingly and change your pattern to match.

You also need to consider weapon type as well. Each monster is weak to either slashing, piercing, or blunt attacks, and you’ll have to vary your equipment depending on the part of the monster you’re targeting.
