Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Weapon Design Contest Being Held by Capcom

If you are a long time fan of the Monster Hunter series then you must remember how Capcom held the Monster Hunter Tri in 2009. The event asked players to show off the artist within them by designing weapons, the selected few were then featured in the game.

The event was a great success and I think that is why they are at it again. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Weapon Design Contest has started.

Getting into the contest is fairly simple, all you need to do is do your best at designing a weapon and then send it to Capcom following the instructions, and within the time limit. Here are the brief instructions as to how you can enter the contest:

“To participate, just send your weapon name and design (illustration) as an email to with the subject line MH4U WEAPON DESIGN. Feel free to send in a little description to help contextualize your design, but please keep it under 100 words. Note: weapon description is NOT a requirement.

We will be selecting TWO winners: one from the Americas (both North and South) and one from Europe (including New Zealand and Australia) so please also write down your country of origin. You have until 9:00am of May 5th (Pacific Time) to submit you design.”

You must know that the weapon you design should be one of the 14 weapons classes listed below:

  • Sword & Shield
  • Dual Blades
  • Great Sword
  • Long Sword
  • Hammer
  • Hunting Horn
  • Lance
  • Gunlance
  • Switch Axe
  • Light Bowgun
  • Heavy Bowgun
  • Bow
  • Insect Glaive
  • Charge Blade

Do you think you have it in you to become one of the two lucky winners of Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Weapon Design Contest?
