Switch Axe is a type of weapon in Monster Hunter: World.


The Switch Axe is a weapon type that allows for two major modes. The first, Axe mode, is essentially a collapsed form of the second Sword mode. In this mode, damage is somewhat reduced, but the weapon is smaller and more manageable. Once extended, this weapon becomes a long, heavy blade, and while it deals significantly more damage, it also is harder to manager, moving the hunter with each swing.
