The Camera has a similar function as the Surveyor Set in Monster Hunter World. Using the Camera, you can take pictures of flora and fauna, as well as anything your heart desires within the different locales in Monster Hunter Rise.

How to Use the Camera and Take Pictures


The Camera can be accessed by either your custom radial menu shortcuts or an action bar. Within the HUD, you can see the buttons on the lower right side which indicate actions you can make while in photo mode. You can switch between the Character view which is a first-person POV or the Cohoot View for selfies.

You can access your album of images either in-game or within your Switch Console's gallery.

      It is smart to buy a switch for several huge games, MHR being one of them.

      Player list provides all of their equipment information. But honestly that doesn't really matter mid hunt. Don't add DPS trackers. It gets really annoying hunting with someone thats just shouting out the damage numbers all hunt
