You can mount and control monsters with the Ironsilk from your Wirebugs! It is an improved version of the Mounting mechanic back in Monster Hunter World since you can now fully control the attacks, actions, and movement of monsters while mounted.
You also have the option of launching a monster at another monster or a wall, similar to the Clutch Claw move and Flinch Shot from MH World.
The Wirebugs allow the hunter to jump and dash ahead by grappling with this flying companion. This also allows hunters to execute aerial attacks as well as new moves called Silkbind Attacks. This feature is a massive help in exploring locales and hunting monsters.
With the Wirebug, you can recover quickly after getting knocked down by a monster's attack.
All 14 weapons have new moves called Silkbind Attacks that use up Wirebugs when executed. These are similar to the Hunter Arts from Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate (MHGU). Each weapon has different Silkbind Attacks, so make sure you check them out!
You can use and choose Switch Skills, or alternate moves, to make your hunter feel unique. Whether it's regular or Silkbind Attacks, you're free to pick Switch Skills that suit your playstyle. With the Sunbreak DLC expansion, you can even use multiple movesets while hunting with Switch Skill Swap.
If you loved the addition of Raider Rides in Iceborne, you now have a similar but permanent member to your team called the Palamute! Not only can you ride it around different locales, but it can also assist you in combat!
You also get the cute Cohoot, which you can dress up, pet, and give food to, just like your Palamute and Palico. It will also tell you the position of Monsters during hunts. Plus, visiting its nest will give you a different reward every time.
Cohoots work like Scoutflies from MH World but monsters are already marked in the map the moment you enter a locale. With this there's no need to investigate or collect monster tracks to search for a monster.
Kamura Village is the new base of operations in MH Rise. The buildings in Kamura Village resemble traditional Japanese buildings, and its inhabitants wear traditional Japanese clothing as well. It serves the purpose of assisting the hunter as well as providing insight into the culture of this game's lore.
50 years ago, a deluge of monsters came to attack Kamura Village, nearly wiping the population to nothing. This event earned the name
The Rampage. You encounter the Rampage a few times while playing through the game, as well as it being an integral part in progressing the main story.
It has a tower defense style of gameplay and will be its own kind of quest.
There is a brand new training area with a really large monster to test your weapons, wirebug attacks, and switch skills on. Moreover, it is no longer limited to one person; you can now train with other hunters!
Locales and maps are not as intricate as they used to be in World. MH World's map can have at most four levels which leaves more space for exploration. So far the maps for each locale in Rise are two levels at most, making the locales relatively smaller than that of World's.
Much like Seliana in Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, Elgado Outpost is the equivalent Master Rank base of operations for MH Rise: Sunbreak. This also serves as the base for the Knights of the Royal Order, new characters that you can help you out in new single player quests called Follower Collab Quests.
Endemic lifeforms or Endemic Life in MH Rise are not just collectibles anymore, unlike in MHW. All of them provide a bonus to the hunter during Quests, and some can even be carried along like an Item found within your Helper Cage!
This type of endemic life increases your stat for the duration of the hunt. Stamina would still decrease over time during hunts but the max stamina would still increase with each Yellow Spiribird.
Temp buffers are buffs that make your stats higher for a period of time. This type does not last long unlike the Permabuffers.
Petalaces are new hunting tools that provide several direct boosts to the hunter's stats. Lore-wise, it causes Spiribirds to get close to you, showering you with their buffing pollen.
It serves a similar function to Charms from previous games, these equipment offer unique buffs to hunters.
You can get Bunny Dangos from Yomogi at the Tea Shop and the canteen at the Gathering Hub.
Dangos buff your max health and stamina. They also provide additional effects that help with each hunt. Some dangos improve certain resistances from elements, you can mix and match dangos depending on your hunt or on the quest you want to take.
Hunter Connect is essentially matchmaking for hunters. You will need to create your own Hunter Connect with the appropriate details, such as the time you want to hunt and what kind of hunters you're looking for (beginners, veterans, etc.).
You can also create a whole Lobby that only other hunters with the same Hunter Connect can find! This way, you can meet and play with like-minded hunters.
Right after a hunt with other hunters, you can choose to send a Like to another hunter. If both of you send each other a Like, it'll become Mutual Likes, and it'll be easier to find each other's Lobbies for future hunts!
You can take pictures of anything you want, such as Endemic Life, Monsters, or other Hunters! You can also get your Cohoot to take a group picture of you and your friends.
Yes. We highly recommend getting Monster Hunter Rise, but you can also get Monster Hunter World. Both offer a wealth of content but as a successor to MH World, MH Rise has better features with its Wirebug function, Switch Skills, and improved multiplayer features. The loading times have greatly improved compared to the console version of MH World too.
MH Rise gets even better with the Sunbreak expansion released on June 30, 2022, with additional updates releasing all the way until 2023. This DLC introduces new monsters, new locales, and new systems that set it further apart from MH World and Iceborne.
But if you are itching to explore the world of Monster Hunter to its fullest extent you can get Monster Hunter World: Iceborne and enjoy hours of content ready for you.
