Offensive Guard is a Skill in Monster Hunter World: Iceborne (MHW:IB).
Offensive Guard Effect
Offensive Guard is increased in level based on the amount of Equipment with this skill the hunter is using. Each level works as follows:
- Level 1: While active increases attack power by 5%
- Level 2: While active increases attack power by 10%
- Level 3: While active increases attack power by 15%
In order to execute a perfect guard you have to activate the guard in a short window before the attack hits the shield. Lance counter-thrusts and Charge Blade guard points can also count as perfect guards if timed correctly.
All weapons with a shield can perform perfect guards including Heavy Bowgun with shield mods.
Offensive Guard's attack power increase lasts 12 seconds.

You can increase the level of Offensive Guard by equipping the following items.
- Guardian Charm I (x1)
- Guardian Charm II (x2)
- Guardian Charm III (x3)

It got nerfed because cb was too op. Sad how lance suffered it's consequence.
is it got neft ? I remembered it boost like 30% at lv3
You get 12 seconds of attack boost at all levels with this skill, it also works with greatswords if you’re feeling super crazy.
god i wish there was a guardian/jumping jewel
Playing Lance on the PC release, this doesn't seem to activate on my counter thrusts?
Can this be triggered by blocking an allies' attack in multiplayer? Maybe give allied greatswords extra strong wakeups if that's the case.
Anyone tested this with GS?
Any info on the duration of.the effect?
This does actually work with the heavy bowgun's shield mod. You lose your guard frames when shooting and gain them back when you go back into an idle stance. If you block an attack right when your guard frames reactivate, offensive guard will proc. The timing is kinda awkward, but it works.
