Switch Skill Swap can be performed by holding down the button that is normally used to select Silkbind Attacks (zL, Middle Click, L2, LT for melee or R, Shift, R1, or RT for ranged) and then pressing X + A, Left Click + Right Click, Triangle + Circle or Y + B together.

This does not use a Wirebug or consume Stamina so you are free to switch around movesets as needed, and there is no limit on how many times you can Switch Skill Swap.

Switch Skill Swap Scrolls

MH Rise Sunbreak - Switch Swap Scroll Equipped
Skills Swap Scrolls are the Switch Skill and Silkbind Attack loadouts you'll be using while hunting. Each hunter can prepare two move sets, represented by the Red and Blue Swap Scrolls.

The currently equipped Swap Scroll can be seen while choosing between your Silkbind Attacks or Switch Skill Swap. Use Switch Skill Swap to quickly switch between them!

Some Skills Depend on Swap Scrolls

Skills like Furious and Dragon Conversion have active buffs depending on what your active switch scrolls are.

Make sure to examine your Switch Skills carefully before every hunt to ensure that it maximizes the effects of your skills and play style!

All Sunbreak Armor Skills

Five Switch Skill Slots in Each Scroll

In the base game MH Rise, there are only (3) three Switch Skill slots available. The Sunbreak DLC adds two (2) new additional Switch Skill slots for a total of five (5) slots per weapon.

Each of these 5 Switch Skill slots can be set individually within the Red Swap Scroll and Blue Swap Scroll.

How to Swap Evade

In addition to swapping Switch Skills, hunters can also evade immediately after using a Switch Skill Swap! This allows them to reposition before continuing the hunt with their other moveset!

Swap Evade consumes Stamina like a normal dodge, but has a large invulnerability window to give hunters room to Switch Skill Swap even in the heat of battle.

Some Skills Affect Swap Evades

Skills like Redirection, Evade Extender, Quick Breath can affect the way your Swap Evades behave. Use these skills to further enhance the comfort of your swap-heavy playstyles!

Redirection at Lv. 2 has your Swap Evade activate automatically upon swapping a Switch Skill just as a monster attacks you, helping you also recover a Wirebug.

Evade Extender, on the other hand, increases the distance of your Swap Evade. Useful for repositioning.

Quick Breath is a valuable comfort skill to take into account if you use switch skill swaps often. This slows down or cures status effects and gives health recovery when some status effects are cured!

How to Change Switch Skill Loadouts

Change From Any Item Box or Tent

You can change which Switch Skills are registered to the Red Scroll and Blue Scroll at any time by visiting any Item Box or going to your Tent.

Step Description
1 Go to any Item Box or your Tent
2 Select Manage Switch Skills > Change Switch Skill
3 Select Red Swap Scroll or Blue Swap Scroll and change the skills freely to determine which skills will be available in each Scroll.

How to Register Switch Skill Loadouts

Register From Any Item Box or Tent

If you've got a setup on your Red Scroll or Blue Scroll which you want to save for later, you can register it to a slot in the Switch Skill Loadouts screen.

Step Description
1 Go to any Item Box or your Tent
2 Select Manage Switch Skills > Switch Skill Loadouts
3 Register your current Switch Skill loadout in Red Swap Scroll or Blue Swap Scroll to an available loadout space. This will allow you to revert to this loadout at any time.
