This is an article about the Rampage in Monster Hunter Rise (MHRise). If you want to know more about how and why this happens, read on!
List of Contents
The Nintendo Direct on February 17th gave new insights into what hunters will be facing when the Rampage hits.
An Apex Arzuros seems to be leading the pack that causes the Rampage. It is shown to have an overall darker coloration with red eyes and streaks all over its body.
For hunters that started before Monster Hunter World, the Apex naming is reserved for monsters that have survived the Frenzy Virus. What more, Apex monsters in the old games have the same physical features as the Apex Arzuros announced in the trailer. Maybe the cause of the Rampage is the Frenzy after all!
As information about Apex monsters in Rise is scarce, there is also a possibility that Apex is just a naming coincidence. In the Japanese trailer, Apex is called ヌシ which roughly translates to 'big boss' or 'leader'!
Monsters are shown advancing into Kamura Village, about to break through a gate keeping them out. Hunters will need to stop Monsters in any way they can to limit the damage to the village.
The hunter is shown launching arrows and firing volleys with a variety of heavy weaponry, similar to the Zorah Magdoros fight from Monster Hunter World.
The drill shown above, in particular, closely resembles the Dragonator from the Zorah Magdaros fight.
The hunter is shown banging a huge gong while surrounded by Monsters. It's unknown if this will have some kind of battle effect, or if it will be used as part of the story to warn the villagers about the incoming hoard of Monsters.
The Rampage is a full-blown monster invasion where monsters go crazy and attack settlements. According to the story, Kamura Village has suffered numerous times already. Fifty years ago, the attack of Magnamalo almost put the village on the brink of ruin hence the village decided to build defenses on its walls.
As introduced in the official trailer, you (the Hunter) are an integral part of stopping an impending Rampage. It is a full-blown battle like that of Zorah Magdaros in Monster Hunter World!
In the video that shows off Join Requests, there is an option to join Rampage Quests. It is separated from the Low and High Rank quests so it will be a special type of quest!
The defenses of Kamura Village include large weapons like cannons, ballistae, and dragonator which could be used in battling monsters in a large, fort-style defense battle! This is akin to when you need to defend the fort against Zorah Magdaros in Monster Hunter World!
The Rampage pits you and the entire Kamura Village against multiple monsters attacking at the same time! If this is the case, Wyvern Riding will be useful in holding off their attacks!
In Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, the implementation of the Frenzy Virus allows the monsters to go crazy and be more aggressive so an iteration for the Frenzy Virus might be causing the Rampage!
What more, a special kind of monster called Apex monsters seems to be leading the Rampage. Apex monsters, if you recall, are monsters that survived the Frenzy Virus!
But it's also possible that Magnamalo's new status ailment,
Hellfire, could be the cause of Apex monsters and the Rampage.
There is also a possibility that the monster is not crazy but only running away from a much stronger monster. This could be a twist in the story where the game will pit you against an unannounced final boss!
