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 as well as the list of monsters in a Turf War, 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 and can help a hunter immensely so always try to instigate one!

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, the losing monsters will always be mountable after a Turf War. Keep an eye out!

How to Start a Turf War

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. This allows you to utilize other monsters to help you in fighting.

Only Happens with the Hunter Present

When Hunter is Present

Monsters will just stare at each other when you aren't in the same area. This means you cannot lure a monster to another monster's area and leave them to fight - you have to be in the same area as them.

Instigate using Endemic Life

Endemic Life that can lure multiple monsters in the same area are great for starting Turf Wars. These Endemic Life are as follows:

Name Description
Stinkmink.pngStinkmink
Hunting Helper
A weasel that sprays special pheromones that attract monsters.
Wailnard.pngWailnard
Hunting Helper
A pheasant with a unique red sac. Its call draws in large monsters.

      Each upgrade level adds 2 points to defense. Depending on rarity the armor will have different levels to max up to. Take the total levels minus one and multiply by 2 to get the total defense plus what the armor started with.

    • Thunder God's Armor
      Pigment 2 for all is 160, 50, 15
      Head and chest 1: 35, 65, 20
