While the release date of the next Monster Hunter World: Iceborne expansion was revealed at the beginning of this month, we had until now a vague overview of what lies ahead. On the program, a new story, new monsters to face and above all the new frozen region of Hoarfrost Reach, described as the biggest of all the game, and of course new weapons and skills.

Indeed, the official Twitter account of Monster Hunter has revealed today three short video presenting the novelties concerning three weapons in particular: The Grapple Sling (Clutch Claw), the Long sword and the Great Sword. Capcom announced previously that all the weapons would have new techniques in Iceborne, and these videos give us a short overview of the possibilities that will be offered to us. And the sling is the one that has all the capabilities needed to become the most interesting one in the future.

The Clutch Claw is just a grappling hook added to the slingshot, allowing several new possibilities in combat. It will now be possible to use it even with a weapon unsheathed, which will let you perform spectacular combos. Also, the area hit by the grappling hook will be more vulnerable. It also allows the player to cling to the monsters to ride them, and it even seems that it is possible to control the direction of the monster to send him waltzing against the scenery or to a trap for example. This opens a lot of possibilities in combat and allows for great mobility, as well as the realization of sensational combos with other weapons.

Another technique would be to empty all the sling ammunition at once. This would not only deliver a powerful attack, but also destabilize the monsters, and create an opening to follow up with another attack.
