Weapons in Monster Hunter World are equipment that assists players during their hunts by helping them deal damage to Monsters. Weapons are divided into categories, each with special requirements and a unique moveset, complete with strengths and weaknesses. To understand the basics of MHW Combat mechanics, please see:

Weapons fall into one of three attack types: Cutting, Blunt and Ammo. Monsters' resistance and vulnerability to these types will vary by body part. Players can deal extra damage if they target a part that is more vulnerable to their weapon's type of attack.

 

cut-damage-mhwCutting Attacks

Sword slashes, lance thrusts, etc: Can be used to cut the tails off certain monsters.

blunt-damage-mhwBlunt Attacks

Shield bashes, hammer smashes, etc: Reduces Monster Stamina and stuns them if  hit on the head.

ammo-damage-mhwAmmo Attacks

Projectiles, Arrows, Bowgun: Special properties depending on the attack.
