What Is Downgrading Equipment?

Returning Weapon To Previous State

Returning Weapon To Previous State

In Monster Hunter World, you'll be able to return your weapon to a previous state by "downgrading" it. This is a new feature that was only introduced in this Monster Hunter game.

Certain Upgrades Don't Allow Rollback

Certain weapon upgrades will not allow you to downgrade your weapon. These usually prompt you to confirm before you choose this upgrade. Make sure you want to proceed with the upgrade before you confirm.

Augmented Weapons Cannot Be Downgraded

Once you've augmented a weapon in this game, you won't be able to downgrade them to a previous state. This means that the augmentation is permanent and altering the weapon cannot be done anymore.

Armor Cannot Be Downgraded

In MHW, you can only downgrade your weapons. Armor can only be upgraded via Armor Spheres. If you wish to downgrade your armor, you need to forge a new piece in the Smithy.

Why You Should Downgrade Gear

Change The Upgrade Tree Of Your Weapon

Change The Upgrade Tree Of Your Weapon

Downgrading weapons will allow you to change the upgrade tree of your weapon. This means you can choose a different upgrade route for your weapon and is useful when you want to change the elemental attributes of your weapon.

Get Back Materials Used In Upgrading

When you downgrade weapons, the materials that you used to upgrade them will return to you. This can be helpful, especially if you need a rare material that was used in the previous upgrade. However, you don't get back the money you spent on upgrading that weapon.

How To Downgrade Weapon & Armor
