New Weapons in MH Rise

No New Weapons in Monster Hunter Rise (MH Rise)

MH Rise - Weapons in MH Rise

While we would love to see more weapons in MH Rise, there are currently no announcements about new weapons in the game. The addition doesn't seem likely at this point, but we're keeping our eyes peeled in future DLCs!

It might be hard to imagine new weapons added into the roster, but some weapons existed in spin-off Monster Hunter games that never made it into the main games. There was the Tonfa, the Magnet Spike, the Accel Axe, and the Medium Bowgun.
