This is an article about the lock-on mechanic in Monster Hunter Rise (MHRise). If you want to know more about the lock-on system in Monster Hunter Rise as well as the various settings associated with it, read on!
List of Contents
If you look at the HUD, there is a bunch of icons on the upper right side of the screen - these are the lock-on icons. This will let you choose which monsters to lock-on by pressing the right analog stick. The monster locked on will have a gold border around its icon!
Press the right analog stick again to cycle between the icons!
There are several camera styles to choose from in the settings, including if you do not want to use lock-on. To do this:
|1||Open the Menu with the plus button (+)|
|2||Cycle through the tabs using L or R buttons and go to System Settings|
|3||Choose Options and select Camera|
|4||Go to Camera Style and press the A button
Choose between: Target Camera, Focus Camera and Do Not Focus on Target.
|5||Cycle through the different camera styles and press A again to confirm|
This camera style is the default setting in Monster Hunter Rise. If you are coming back from Monster Hunter World, you may feel unfamiliar with this camera style mainly because it is very active. You have to press the L button whenever you want to recenter the camera towards the monster you locked-on!
Automatically focuses camera on monster
Can concentrate on combos and monsters
Environmental awareness is sacrificed
Attention is limited to monster and combos alone.
More susceptible to off-screen hazards eg. small monsters and walls
If you are used to the camera style of Monster Hunter World, then maybe the Focus Camera style is for you. The camera will automatically follow the monster you are locked onto. This can allow you to focus mainly on your combos instead of manually recentering the camera by tapping the L Button.
High level camera freedom for free viewpoint switching
Increased environmental awareness
Needs some getting used to
Wirebug button (zL) is below the target camera button (L) so it can lead to wrong button presses.
Mid-combo camera adjustment can be pretty taxing and disorienting
