Weapon design for the Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate weapon design contest.  The winner’s weapon actually gets put into MH4U.  Pretty cool prize if you ask me.  Most entries I saw were just weapons that were supposed to look cool, which Monster Hunter already has in spades.  So I went for something more unique and goofy.

This is the weirdest hammer I have ever seen, including RWBY weapons.

For those just tuning in, one of the actual winners was quite silly indeed: a Poogie-based Hunting Horn.

how is the chick used in the hammer? Not sure how the weapon's design works

I guess it gets mad and puffs fire around when it hits something.

Kinda reminds of that Thunder type Hammer from Monster Hunter G. You needed Thunder Bugs to make it and looked like a cage with Thunder Bugs inside.

A clockwork Insect Glaive and a Poogie Hunting Horn. In other words, this didn't win, but one of the actual winners honored it in spirit.

Hey!

A long while back I asked if I was able to model this in CG, well I finally got around to it. You can find it here:

Thanks for letting me model this, if used in portfolio, credit will always be given.

I will be uploading more shots of this as I make some tweaks, let me know if you have anything else you would like to see in CG!

Also if you have the dragon as a turnaround it would be a great addition.

thanks again!

Considering the whole point is hunting, they should be going after it already.

So, uh, how does this work?
arvalis's avatar
What part confuses you?

How does the weapon work?
Does the bird's cry demoralise your opponents?
Or do they surrender out of sympathy for the bird haha?

I'm just looking at it and thinking the cage will break when you hit something with it XD.

They put a pig with a crown on a throne that you utterly demolish your enemies with.

I think putting a bird in a cage that you spin around like crazy would be rather normal to them :/
