Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak: BEST Greatsword Build
Starting of the builds, we must talk about the Greatsword itself. Being one of the most beloved weapon types, it’s also considered to have some of the highest Damage Per Second(DPS) in the game along with an insane amount of stagger Damage as well. With an extensive weapon reach and the ability to cut off monster parts, it is also very beneficial in obtaining certain materials for upgrading your equipment.
