Craft or upgrade eight weapons of each weapon class to unlock the second base-game Switch Skill. When you have completed the eighth craft or upgrade for a given weapon, you will unlock a new Switch Skill for that weapon. If you want access to all of them, you will need to repeat this process for each type of weapon.

A number of different Hub quests are required to complete the third set of base game Switch skills. You’ll get a series of quests that ask you to hunt down two monsters when you achieve Hub rank 4, 5, or 6. One weapon gets a new Switch Skill with each quest. After reaching rank 4, it is possible to start working on the quests for the following weapons: Sword and Shield; Hunting Horn; Light Bowgun; Switch Axe; Great Sword; Hammer; Charge Blade; Lance; Heavy Bowgun; and Long Sword; Gunlance; Dual Blades; Insect Glaive; and Bow.
