Once you defeat them, you can craft all-new armor sets and weapons from their material remains. Players would require finishing main story of MHW: I first to unlock tundra region of Guiding Lands before engaging these monsters.

Frozen frontiers of Monster Hunter World: Iceborne will collide in frosty new Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds event.

A running trend for action role-playing game Monster Hunter: World, developer/publisher Capcom frequently arranges special limited time event by teaming up with popular franchise of their own and various others for.

For a two-part event quest adventure, HZD protagonist character Aloy will step into icy grounds of "New World" to hunt down terrifying beasts. Being a natural hunter of mech creatures, she will have no trouble fitting in a frigid terrain.

Aside from playing as Aloy, there is a chance for Hunters to craft Light Bowgun, Stormslinger Prototype. This one is a ranged weapon from HZD expansion DLC that nicely fits into MH: World in terms of design aesthetics and usage.

Stormslinger used to be an upgrade for spear that Banuk shaman Ourea wielded in The Frozen Wilds and it now acts more like a ropecaster. Not only its power capacity has been expanded but an overcharge can also cause major blowback.

Similar to fierce canine beast Scorcher from HZD, you have thunderous beast Zinogre to face in Iceborne next month but make sure that you at least have a Master Rank of 24 or above and packing some Thunder Resistance before a confrontation.
