What Are Rampage Skills?

Bonus Stats for Weapons

Rampage Skills can be treated the same as add-ons for bowguns in Monster Hunter. They can be added to your chosen weapon by spending items known as Defender Tickets. These Defender Tickets are obtained in Rampage Quests but they come in massive quantities and are pretty easy to obtain.

Rampage Weapons have more slots

While Rampage weapons have a weaker base form than other weapons, they instead, have more Rampage Skill slots which makes them highly customizable for your needs. Want a pure raw damage bow? Rampage Bow may suit you! Want a Hunting Horn with high damage and offensive melodies? Rampage Agitato may be what you're looking for! Make sure to take a closer look at Rampage weapons before disregarding them as bad weapons!

Rampage Skill Rollback

Rolling back your changes is easy. After ramping up your weapon with a different Rampage Skill, your weapon will have a 4th choice (for melee normal weapons) that shows your previous Rampage Skill! You can choose to revert your current Rampage Skill to the previous one. Take note that this will still consume materials.

Best Rampage Skills

Ramp-Up Skill Effect
Affinity Boost II Handy for some builds to hit max Affinity. Mostly worth it from level 2 and higher.
Attack Boost IV More damage is always welcome. It grants the most value at level 4, lower levels of Attack Boosts are outshined by some Ramp- Up skills.
Defense Grinder II One of the best QoL skill for the Great Sword. Get it if you don't wish for maximum damage output builds.
Dulling Strike Not really one of the best skills but it greatly synergizes with low sharpness builds.
Element Exploit The reason why elemental builds can still work. Always go for Elemental Exploit Ramp-Up skill if you wish to go for elemental damage.
Hellion Mode Exclusive to the Raging Claws, it allows the Dual Blades to critically strike while in Demon Mode at the cost of double sharpness loss.
Silkbind Boost Not all weapons can maximize this skill but for those who does, this is one of the most efficient Ramp-Up skill in the game.
Teostra Soul A ramp-up skill that makes blast builds viable. It increases the damage of blast procs by 20% and is a near necessity for blast builds.

    • 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.
