Why no SnS love?

#1Jin66Posted 3/26/2013 7:38:44 PM
I've noticed no one uses SnS online or talks about it at all. Is it not a particularly good weapon? I've loved using it so far and the agility helps a lot. The only pain is having to sharpen my weapon all the time.

Any Pro hunters use this as their main weapon or any reasons why it should/ shouldn't be used?

it's "too difficult" for your average player to use as well as any other weapon thats why

It has the lowest damage output and DS now do a much better job with elemental and status attacks. It's a good beginner's weapon and is still useful, but other weapons do everything it does better.

I'm definitely far from pro, but I enjoy using it for elemental damage. I can block, use items on the fly, and just feel pretty agile in general when using it. Just got Djinn so I generally try to find a reason to whip it out XD

They may as well remove it from the game, once MH4 is out, Charge Axe will replace it utterly -_-.

I used to use Sword and Shield in Tri, it was my main weapon, always used it, but now Dual Blades are out, and im loving it.

Anyone that is remotely good at this game knows the SnS is a fine weapon.

Not the best, but a fine weapon.

These same people that say ' LOL IT SUCKS BRAH" are the same people that think a Rapid Fire Gunner can't do good damage either.

I just crafted my first SnS for my Jaggi set. Usually use a switch axe. I like the speed of the attacks, but I do notice I do a lot less damage. I am however significantly more mobile than I used to be. Overall, I find it to be a fun weapon. I think Switch Axe and Sword and Shield are going to be my main weapons.

It's a good weapon if you're using proper elemental damage on each hunt, or status effects. Otherwise you're better off using something else.
