What is a Cohoot

This is an article about the Cohoot, a new pet owl in Monster Hunter Rise (MH Rise). If you want to know what it does, how you can interact with it, and how you can change its outfit, read on!

Cohoot Basic Information

Cohoot Official Render
Official Description
Cohoots are popular pets in Kamura, beloved for their affectionate and clever nature. Apart from providing some much-needed comfort to hunters, they also help out on quests by showing the positions of monsters.
In-between quests, you can dress them up in fancy outfits, so make sure to give them the daily attention they deserve.

A New Owl Pet in Monster Hunter Rise

Cohoot New Pet

The Cohoot is your Hunter's new owl pet and companion in Monster Hunter Rise (MH Rise). You may interact with it while in Kamura Village like Poogie in the past games!

Unlike Poogie, your Cohoot can be accessed anywhere outside a quest through your Action menu!

What Cohoots Do

Scouts the Position of Monsters

Cohoots Scout Monsters

At the start of any quest, your Hunter will release a Cohoot to scout the map. It will show all monster positions and other relevant objects such as gathering points and endemic life.

The Cohoots, however, cannot identify the monsters completely. Unidentified monsters on the map will show up as question marks. You must reach these monsters for the first time to fully identify them!

Fully identified monsters will show up with their proper icons on the map on every quest.

Sends Out Join Requests

Send out Join Requests

Join Requests allow other hunters (players) to join your quest if you are connected online. You can send out Join Requests through your Cohoot!

Think of it like the SOS Flare in Monster Hunter World (MHW)! You can join other players' Join Requests through a quest board.

Collects Items in its Nest

Cohoot Nest in Kamura Village


The Cohoot's nest can be found on top of the tall tree bearing the Buddy Plaza Shrine within the Buddy Plaza. In its nest are items, some of which are rare like the Lagniapple and Steel Egg.

So, be sure to check the nest as it refreshes after every 5th quest completed.

Cohoot Nest in Elgado Outpost

MH Rise Sunbreak - Cohoot Nest in Elgado

If you have the Sunbreak expansion, the Cohoot nest can be found within the Command Post area of the Elgado Outpost.

Entering the Command Post from the Centrel Plaza, head to the left and use Wirebugs to climb the rampart until you see a Cohoot nest!

You can obtain items from both nests. Taking items from only one nest will not cancel out the other.

Takes Selfies in Photo Mode

MHRise Cohoot Selfie

Whenever you decide to take a picture of youreslf through the Cohoot View in Photo Mode, your Cohoot will hold the camera and take a photo for you!

Accessing the Camera can be done through the Action menu.

How to Use Photo Mode

Cohoots Can Be Fed

Cohoot Interact With

Cohoots can be interacted with by feeding them through the Pet Menu!

In past games in the series, interacting with Poogies increases their affection and, in turn, increases the quality of the items they pick up.

As of this writing, feeding your Cohoot does as much as doing a gesture. But this does not mean you shouldn't. Like all companions, they deserve all love and affection.

How to Change Cohoot's Outfit

Access Cohoot Clothing

① Call Your Cohoot

You can call your Cohoot by accessing your Action menu at the bottom right and selecting Call Cohoot. Calling your Cohoot to you changes your game HUD interface.

Every other menu cannot be accessed except for Cohoot Controls which will pop up on the Right-side of your screen. You can still do camera controls while accessing Cohoot Controls.

② Open the Pet Menu

You can access the Pet Menu by pressing the NSW - X button for Switch, PS4 - Triangle Button.png for PlayStation, XBOX - Y Button.png for Xbox, or X for PC.

Once there, select Change Clothes option!

③ Choose Cohoot Clothing

Once the Cohoot Clothing options are open, you will then see the available clothing your Cohoot can wear!

More Cohoot outfits can be unlocked by completing requests or buying paid DLC.
