With the majority of MH Rise's content being focused on simple Large Monsters, you'll often encounter veteran hunters that already know the ins and outs of these monsters. As such, they'll be using Palamutes to get to fights as soon as possible for faster hunts. More time being with the monster means more damage output so make sure to bring Palamutes when playing online!

How to Play Online

Bring Palicoes for Gathering

Unlike Palamutes, Palicoes will gather items when exploring maps. If you want to turbo up your gathering speed, bring two palicoes then lap around the map several times to gain a massive amount of items. Bringing Palicoes works better with the Raisin d'etre Dango to speed up gathering points respawn point.

Bring Palicoes for Harder Hunt

Palicoes gets access to several new moves. Traps and Bombs in particular, deals big damage against Large Monsters so if you want additional damage for tough large monsters, Palicoes are definitely the way to go. In particular, we highly suggest the Trapper or the Bombardier for experienced players to maximize their trapping moves and bomb moves.
