Join Requests Guide | How to Join and Send out SOS

This is an article about Join Request in Monster Hunter Rise (MHRise). If you want to know about how to call for a Join Request as well as how to join one, read on!


*The information here is based on past games, the demo, and the official Monster Hunter social media accounts. We will update this article as soon as new information comes to light!

What is a Join Request?

The Join Request is a way for your existing quest to be joinable by other players. Think of it like the SOS Flare in Monster Hunter World (MHW).

The hunters will send out Cohoots that bring Join Requests to Gathering Hubs in which hunters can opt-in to. If your friends are unavailable and a monster is giving you a hard time, maybe try sending out a Join Request and ask for help!

How to Send out a Join Request

1 Go the Start Menu.
2 Go to Quests.
3 Choose Join Request.
4 Confirm the Join Request.

Just Access the Start Menu

Next, choose the type of quest you want to join. You can choose between Low and High Rank Hub Quests!

Rampage Quest is an Option Too!

You may also opt to join a Rampage Quest! This type of quest looks special because it is separated from the Low and High Rank quests! Maybe this will replace the Sieges in Monster Hunter World (MHW)?

What is the Rampage?

Then you will be prompted to choose a quest level, denoted by stars. Take note: the greater the stars, the harder the quest is rated.
