Monster Hunter Rise brings plenty of quality of life improvements to Capcom’s beloved series, but that doesn’t mean its any easier for beginners.
The first decision you need to make before a hunt is which weapon to bring, and with 14 to pick from, that choice can be a challenge all on its own.
Monster Hunter’s most iconic weapon. The Great Sword does incredibly high damage, but at the cost of slow swings. If you’re confident in your timing and evasive skills, nothing hits quite as hard as the Great Sword.
Hammer users have one job: Smack monsters in the head until they fall down. Getting big hits in with the Hammer is extremely satisfying, making it as fun as it is effective.
Once considered a bottom-tier weapon, the Hunting Horn is one of the best in Rise. With the Hunting Horn, you’ll psyche yourself and your teammates up with buffs by playing music as you whale on monsters.
