Use Gestures in Monster Hunter Rise (MH Rise) to communicate with other hunters or strike a pose. Learn how to assign Gestures, use them, what their effects are, and where to get more.
List of Contents
|Switch Action on Action Bar|
|Left or Right Arrow|
The Action Bar is an easy way to access the Gestures feature. Use the left or right buttons on the D-pad (left or right arrows on the keyboard) to switch actions.
By setting it preemptively then pressing the up or down button on the D-pad (up or down arrow on the keyboard), you'll be able to easily access gestures and even other communication options like custom shoutouts and stickers!
|Open Radial Menu|
Another easy shortcut is to set a communication shortcut in the Radial Menu.
The disadvantage of this option is you'll require one slot on the radial menu to set up only 1 gesture so if you wish to use a lot of them, you'll consume a lot of radial menu slots which can hinder your actual game options like a shortcut to healing items or traps.
|Open Chat Menu|
One of the quickest ways that you can use gestures is by tapping the button for opening the Chat Menu.
It is recommended to use these buttons for access to the Chat feature since pressing it twice brings you to direct messages instantly.
This is the least efficient way to use the chat feature. Simply open up the Main Menu and head over to the Chat Menu.
While it can be done quickly with a keyboard and mouse, it is a lot more time-consuming to use with a controller.
|Shortcut Set||Action||Next Set|
|F1, F2, F3, F4||1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8||G|
If you are playing the game on PC, you can comfortably access gestures through a hotbar. Open up the Radial Menu Settings to customize it.
You can assign up to eight (8) actions in a shortcut set. Actions and items on your Radial Menu, starting from the 12-o'-clock position, will be aligned from left to right on the hotbar.
Once you have your gestures set, access the hotbar through the default F1-F4 keys and then press the default number keys.
More gestures can be unlocked through completing Event Quests.
Once they are rewarded to you, they can be viewed them through the Gestures tab in the Chat menu.
"Traditional Dance" Gesture Set
If you are looking for more variety, gestures can be purchased through the game's online store.
Simply access the online store such as the Nintendo eShop through the Courier or log in to your browser and make the transaction! Make sure you have enough to purchase the DLC.
Once purchased, the gesture should appear in the Gestures tab of the Chat Menu.
The punches you throw while shadowboxing can deal damage to monsters. While it does miniscule damage, it can be a fun way to eliminate a monster that you have already studied all movement patterns for some fun party sessions.
By using the Show Off 2 gesture after eating a Dango Bulker, you can temporarily gain an attack buff. Don't waste those damage buffs if you have them!
