Turf Wars

This is an article about Turf Wars in Monster Hunter Rise (MHRise). If you want to know more about how Turf Wars work and which monsters usually bang their heads together, read on!

What is a Turf War?

A Battle Between Monsters

Battle Between Monsters

Turf Wars are special battles between monsters in an area first introduced in Monster Hunter World (MHW). Monsters that fight in Turf Wars often unleash flashy and powerful moves to defeat the other monster!

These monsters fighting is a sight to behold so we are glad that it is back in Monster Hunter Rise (MHRise)!

Monsters Take Damage

In a turf war, monsters take a lot of damage from each other. Some monsters even have their stamina reduced by a large amount while some even get their parts broken. Hunters can surely take advantage of Turf Wars while hunting!

Easier Wyvern Riding

One of the conditions for Wyvern Riding is monsters damaging another monster in which Turf Wars have an important role. In addition to broken parts and reduced stamina, monsters in Turf Wars have a high chance of rendering the other mountable!

How to Start a Turf War

The following information is from Monster Hunter World (MHW). We will update Monster Hunter Rise's conditions for Turf Wars when new information comes to light!

Only Happens Between Certain Monsters

Monster in a Turf War

Turf Wars only happen between certain monsters. You would not see a Great Izuchi dare challenge a Magnamalo in a Turf War, right?

Also, knowing which monsters fight each other gives you the knowledge to better prepare for the other monster too eg. Deviljho have Turf Wars with elder dragons so when fighting an Elder Dragon, expect to see a Deviljho!

Only Happens with the Hunter Present

When Hunter is Present

Monsters do not fight each other when there is no hunter around. This means you cannot lure a monster to another monster's area and leave them to fight!

    • I saw that Magnamalo has two names: some shoos are selling Magnamalo Amiibo and some shops and selling Magbanaki Amiibo but they’re both the same monster. Why is that?

    • I hope they have different accessories for the Palamute like how the Palico can use Palico Gadgets! Maybe fang accessories which could inflict Poison, etc.?
