This is an article about how to lock onto a target using the lock on camera system in Monster Hunter Rise (MH Rise). If you want to know more about how to lock onto targets as well as what the difference is between target camera or focus camera, read on!
List of Contents
If you look at the HUD, there are 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 (Switch) or Q button key (PC). 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 + (Switch) or Esc (PC)|
|2||Cycle through the tabs using L or R buttons (Switch) or Left Click (PC) and go to System Settings|
|3||Choose Options and select Camera|
|4||Go to Camera Style and press the A button (Switch) or Left Click (PC)
Choose between: Target Camera, Focus Camera and Do Not Focus on Target
|5||Cycle through the different camera styles and confirm|
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 or Ctrl.
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
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 (Switch) or Ctrl (PC) whenever you want to recenter the camera towards the monster you locked-on!
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
The Targeting Arrow shows you the route to the quest monster. A red arrow will appear in front of your hunter after leaving camp that will point you where to go.
This is useful when you use the Detailed Map (zoomed in) instead of the General Map! We suggest turning it on when you are not familiar with the locale yet, then remove it when you feel like you have mastered the routes already.
|1||Press the Plus button (Switch) or Esc (PC).|
|2||Go to System Settings.|
|3||Choose Options and select Game Settings.|
|4||Go to Targeting Arrow and press the A button (Switch) or Left Click (PC).
Choose between: Show or Hide
