How to Unlock Hunter Rank Caps (HR8+)

Complete Narwa Urgent Quest

Upon defeating Thunder Serpent Narwa in the Urgent Quest Serpent Goddess of Thunder at the end of HR ★7, you'll unlock the Hunter Rank cap, which allows your Hunter Rank to begin increasing upon each Quest completion.

The Narwa Quest was the final Urgent Quest available before the Update 2.0 release. Players who completed the game up to the end of the original Hub Quest line will reach this point automatically upon downloading Update 2.0.

Hunter Rank Will Begin Increasing Gradually

During HR 1-7, your Hunter Rank is limited by your current ★ ranking and Urgent Quests are required to advance. However, upon reaching HR 8, Hunter Rank will increase gradually every time you clear a Quest.

The amount the Hunter Rank will increase depends on the Hunter Rank Points provided by a Quest. In general, more difficult quests will yield more Hunter Rank Points.

List of Urgent Quests

Hunter Rank Cap List and Unlock Conditions

Upon reaching each Hunter Rank Cap, players will unlock a new Urgent Quest. Completing each Urgent Quest will unlock the Cap and allow the player's Hunter Rank to continue increasing after every hunt.

(HR 8-100 and Beyond)

Farm Apex Rampage Quests to Get HR Points Fast

As of Update 3.0, the best way to farm HR points from HR8 to HR100 is doing Rampage Quests specifically those that feature Apex Monsters. Based on our testing, these give off the greatest HR Points - much more so if your performance merit an S Rank!

Rampage Quests takes a long time but is generally not difficult because the Hunting Installations and Warriors of Kamura are there to help you!

Rampage Guide: How to Get S-Rank

Farm the Thunder Serpent Narwa Quest

Monster Hunter Rise - Narwa Quest is Still Good but falls Off at Higher HR

The Narwa quest Serpent Goddess of Thunder is still a reliable way to farm Materials for Talisman Melding and farm HR points. It is fast and easy especially if you have mastered all of Narwa's phases and moves.

However, the HR points given by this quest falls off when in higher HR, especially if you are farming for that coveted HR100 Urgent Quest against Crimson Glow Valstrax. This quest is ideal if you also want to get a ton of melding materials from each hunt. But if you are looking to speed through the ranks, we highly suggest you farm the Apex Rampage quests!

HR Points Gained Per Quest

Quest HR Points
Roly-Poly Lanterns 30
Thunder Serpent Narwa 1000
The Avaricious Apex Arzuros 1050
A Blaze Among Beasts 1830
Ibushi ★7 Rampage
(A-Rank Clear)
Apex Mizutsune ★7 Rampage
(A-Rank Clear)
Ibushi ★7 Rampage
(S-Rank Clear)

*This is an estimation, so please take it with a grain of salt!

We've provided a few examples of the number of Hunter Rank Points gained from each Quest for your convenience. While Narwa doesn't yield the most HR Points, it's a simple and reliable method to increase steadily up through HR 20. After that, your HR point requirement per HR will increase and you will feel the Narwa quest lacking.

HR Points from Rampage Quests also vary depending on the final monster (Apex or Normal Monster) and the completion ranking (A or S). Rampage Quests take time but are generally easier because of the Hunting Installations so we suggest running them at higher HR!

Participate in Join Requests

Yes Send Join Request.png

There are a lot of opportunities to climb the ranks when you participate in online Join Requests. Sometimes, you may join 5 minutes into the middle of a hunt, making the session supposedly shorter than going solo. These can help if you want to hunt with others or are trying to fight monsters you are having a hard time clearing.

However, the amount of Join Requests available will vary depending on how many people are actively using them. So they may not be one of the best ways to farm for Hunter Ranks. They are still effective if there are a lot of people playing online! Try taking Join Requests on Thunder Serpent Narwa or Crimson Glow Valstrax, as each give a ton of HR points.

Take note that Join Requests are not available for Village Quests.

Co-op Multiplayer Guide

Continue Ranking Up Through Master Rank

Elgado Outpost.png

As you continue taking quests in the Sunbreak expansion, your Hunter Rank will naturally increase.

Master Rank quests require the Sunbreak expansion, and can be started by taking the hunting request for Daimyo Hermitaur from Rondine the Trader after defeating Thunder Serpent Narwa. Be sure to take them since they give a chunk of HR points, too!

Every quest will always provide Hunter Rank points in Master Rank, so you do not have to worry about taking Low Rank or High Requests again to increase your rank if you decide to continue the story in Elgado.

By this time, you will want to prioritize increasing your Master Rank to unlock more quests and clear caps just like those seen prior to HR100.

How to Unlock Master Rank

What is Hunter Rank (HR)?

Indicates Your Overall Progress

The Hunter Rank (HR) is an indicator of the player's overall progress and is often a sign on how experience a player has.

You climb the ranks by participating and clearing quests. Higher-ranked quests give out more points, and higher ranks give you access to more quests.

Rank Limits in Multiplayer

Random Hunters Joining the Quest.png

By default, there is no rank limit to who can join your session in multiplayer. You can set the rank limits, however, when setting up a lobby. Participating in Join Requests has no rank limitations, so theoretically an HR999 can join you when you have a join request set to on.

Seen in Your Status and Guild Card

Guild Card.png

Your Hunter Rank can be seen by going to your Items and Equipment Menu and selecting Status.

On the very first page, you can find your Hunter Rank. Looking at your Guild Card also shows you what your Hunter Rank is currently at!

Unlocks Harder Quests to Take On

Monster Hunter Rise - Crimson Glow Valstrax Quest.jpg

Many hard quests in the later parts of the game require a certain HR to unlock. For example, Crimson Glow Valstrax's quest is an HR100 Urgent quest so you need to be at least HR100 to take it on!

Needed to Unlock High Rank

Clearing ★3 Hub Quests unlocks a ★4 Urgent Rampage Quest where you hunt an Apex Arzuros. Once you have cleared this quest, you can then gain access to ★4 Hub Quests which are all set in High Rank. Read our button link below to learn more about reaching High Rank!

How to Unlock High Rank

What is the Max Hunter Rank?

Maximum is HR999

It is confirmed that the maximum Hunter Rank for Monster Hunter Rise (MHRise) is HR999!

After breaking the HR Cap at 100 by completing the Crimson Glow Valstrax Urgent Hub Quest, players have no more limits on their HR and can go as high as 999 by continuing to grind Quests and earn more HR Points.

(HR 1-7)

Clear Hub Quests

MHRise Key Quest Completion

For players who have not yet broken the HR 7 cap, the only way to increase your Hunter Rank (HR) is to clear specific Hub Quests. Completing Key Hub Quests will unlock an Urgent Hub Quest that upon completion will unlock the next level of Hub Quests and subsequently increase your Hunter Rank.

In Update 2.0, upon reaching HR 8 after defeating Thunder Serpent Narwa in the quest Serpent Goddess of Thunder, Hunter Rank is capped at specific levels and the Hunter Rank Point system is implemented, allowing you to increase your Hunter Rank from completing any Quest.
