This is a guide on how to use the Whetstone in Monster Hunter Rise (MH Rise) for the Nintendo Switch! Read on to learn more about how to use the whetstone and where to get it!
List of Contents
The Whetstone is a free item that is permanently affixed to your item pouch, alongside the Kunai and the BBQ Split. There is no need to purchase it from the store or mine it from mining outcrops.
Pressing the L button brings up all of your saved shortcuts. By default, Shortcut 1 should have all your bare essentials like the Whetstone, Kunai, Ration, Palamute Ride Call, etc. You can also customize your shortcuts to fit your playstyle!
On the lower right corner of your, HUD is where all of your consumable items can be seen. Similar to shortcuts, pressing the L button and then cycling through with the Y Button and A Button moves your selection Left and Right respectively. Cycle through until you reach the Whetstone. Let go of the L button and then press the A Button to sharpen your weapon!
The best time to use the Whetstone is while riding your Palamute! Sharpening your weapon when not riding a Palamute renders you immobile, as your character goes through a sharpening animation. This leaves you open for dangerous monster attacks, especially when you are in low health!
If you have no choice but to sharpen due to your weapon bouncing when doing attacks, make sure to do it behind cover or at a high ground. This way, you can shield yourself from incoming monster attacks or buy yourself time before the monster reaches you.
However, take caution as some monsters can still reach you with an attack even if you are in an elevated spot from them.
