An annoyingly large number of weapons in Iceborne don't have a direct craft option into MR, so you have to farm lower rank monsters to go through the tree which sucks.
This list has all the HR weapons that turn into MR weapons that are currently meta in Iceborne's endgame. This doesn't mean they're the only worthwhile ones, just the ones that deal the most damage and which a lot of people will want. If I listed every "good" or "viable" weapon we'd be here all day. I grabbed them from the meta compilation at monsterhuntermeta, but the names here are all HR weapons so there's no spoilers.
The weapons that do have a direct craft option into MR aren't included in this list, so if a category has few options it's likely because they don't have many weapons that require a previous HR weapon to craft.
