Welcome to the latest instalment in our Monster Hunter: World weapons crafting guide. This one focuses on the Bow, the weapon of choice for those that like to fight from range while keeping on the move.

The Bow may not do an awful lot of damage with each arrow, but the sheer number of them you can fire off at once more than makes up for it. You can pepper your enemy with shots then unleash Dragon Piercer to deal insane damage when they go down.

If that sounds like you, read on for our complete list of Bows in the game, including all upgrade trees, and how to craft each one of them.
