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 as well as how to raise your HR, read on!

What is Hunter Rank (HR)?

Indicates Your Overall Progress

The Hunter Rank (HR) is the indicator of the player's overall progress and how well a player has played the game.

Unlocks Harder Quests to Take On

Many hard quests in the later parts of the game require a certain HR to unlock. For example, Ruiner Nergigante's quest in MHW is an HR100 Urgent quest so you need to be atleast HR99 to take it on!

Maximum is HR999

It is confirmed that the maximum Hunter Rank for Monster Hunter Rise (MHRise) is HR999! In the past games, this cap is increased even further by finishing all the Hub quests.

Removes HR Cap with the April Update

With the First Title Update to be released at the end of April 2021, the Hunter Rank cap will increase. This update will also enable you to accumulate Hunter Rank Points (HRP) each time you complete a quest to increase your Hunter Rank.

Free Title Update Release Dates and Details

HRP Will Not Accumulate Before The April Update?

MHRise HR Will Not Increase

According to an interview with Director Ichinose, the April update will allow you to accumulate HRP by completing Village and Hub Quests. This means that you will not accumulate HRP until the April update comes out, regardless of what quests you complete.

Of course, the full HRP mechanic for Monster Hunter Rise (MHRise) hasn't been revealed yet so we will update this guide when it is!

How to Raise Your Hunter Rank

Clear Hub Quests

MHRise Key Quest Completion

As of March 26th, the only way to increase your Hunter Rank (HR) is to clear Hub Quests. Completing Key Hub Quests, similar to completing Key Village Quests, will unlock an Urgent Hub Quest that upon completion will unlock the next level of Hub Quests and subsequently increase your Hunter Rank. However, as stated before, with the April update Hunter Rank will be uncapped and HRP will be implemented, allowing you to increase your Hunter Rank in more ways. This is similar to how Hunter Rank was uncapped in Monster Hunter World when the Iceborne expansion released.

      Is April 20 confirmed?? Where’d u get the date

    • >>[2]
      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
