Insect Glaive upgrade tree and crafting materials - Monster Hunter: World

Upgrade path and trees of both the insect glaive and the kinsect bug.

0

The Insect Glaive is an interesting weapon in Monster Hunter: World, as it’s a polearm that utilizes two separate but equally important tools: the glaive and the Kinsect. Upgrading both parts leads to greater results, which is why studying the Insect Glaive upgrade tree and planning out what crafting materials are needed is a good idea.

Hunters who choose to take up the Insect Glaive as their primary weapon should also take a look at the Insect Glaive movesets guide to become better acquainted with their new tool. Another worthwhile guide is the complete crafting list and recipes, so you're ready even in the midst of a hunt.
