Hunter Rank Guide How to Unlock and Increase Hunter Rank (HR)

This is an article about the Hunter Rank in Monster Hunter Rise (MHRise). If you want to know more about how Hunter Rank works in Rise, how to increase your HR fast, farm for HR points to HR 100, and unlockables for breaking each HR cap, read on!

How to Unlock Hunter Rank Caps (HR8+)

Complete Narwa Urgent Quest

Upon defeating Narwa in the Urgent Quest at the end of HR ★7, you'll unlock the Hunter Rank cap, which will allow 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, so 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.

Hunter Rank Cap List and Unlock Conditions

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

Breaking each new Hunter Rank Cap unlocks new Quests and features, so keep moving on up!

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!

The Narwa Quest is Still Good but Falls Off at Higher HR

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

The Narwa quest Serpent Goddess of Thunder is 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. We don't discourage you from doing this quest but we highly suggest doing Apex Rampage quests instead!

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)
1820
Apex Mizutsune ★7 Rampage
(A-Rank Clear)
2050*
Ibushi ★7 Rampage
(S-Rank Clear)
3500*

*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!

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!

What is the Max Hunter Rank?

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.

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.

    • Give us the ability to change our layered armor display. What I mean is, ya know how armor looks different on the male and female models? well, I wish there was the ability to change the appearance from the male models of armor, to the female models, and the reverse without changing the gender of your character itself. This would be really nice, as imo some armor pieces look better as the male model version.
