★ Monster Hunter Rise and its expansion MHRise: Sunbreak is out now for the Nintendo Switch & PC, then for PlayStation, XBox, & Game Pass on January 20, 2023!
Head on over to our MHRise Wiki for the latest guides and strategies about all things MHRise!
Chatting in Monster Hunter: World can be prove to be useful, especially when you're teaming up with random people online. Whether you want to coordinate powder buffs or just be silly in the Gathering Hub, the Chat Functions in game has it all.
|How to Open the Chat Log|
|PC||Press Enter key|
|Playstation||Press Touchpad twice|
|Xbox||Hold Back button|
Here you can see various messages, such as quest notifications and messages from other players. You can type out your own message here using your keyboard, or the in-game keyboard if you're playing on a console.
You can choose to send your message to everyone in the Online Session, to people in the same quest (or players not on a quest), to people in your room, or to specific people only.
Under the Chat Log are the other Chat Functions: Shoutouts, Stickers, Gestures, and Poses.
There are three types of shoutouts: Manual, Custom, and Auto. Manual Shoutouts require you to go through the Chat Log, then pick Shoutouts, then choose which one you want to say. It has phrases already built-in, translated to whatever language your fellow hunters are using.
Custom Shoutouts also need you to navigate through the Chat Log to get to it. The difference is you can curate these yourself, and therefore isn't translated like the Manual Shoutouts.
Meanwhile, Auto Shoutouts are the ones that automatically trigger whenever you do something in battle, like plant bombs, mount, and faint. Both Manual and Auto Shoutouts have fixed phrases, but you can customize them as well.
When words aren't enough, you can show how you feel through sending Stickers. While there are a lot of stickers already available for use, you can only access the rest through the Sticker Set DLCs: Hunter Items Set, Monster Statuses Set, Iceborne Monsters Set, Lynian Set, and the Friendly Greetings Set.
There are also crossover Sticker Sets: Mega Man Set, Devil May Cry Set, Raccoon City Set, and Street Fighter V Set.
With Gestures, you can make your hunter wave hello to another player, or you can bow down to your Handler. You can get more Gestures through DLCs such as Gesture Pack: Swag Dance, Gesture Pack: Clean Dance, Gesture: Hadoken!, and Gesture: Shoryuken! There is one crossover Gesture: Devil May Cry Dual Guns.
You can strike a Pose wherever, whenever. Whether you want to commemorate your first successful capture, or to take a group photo with your friends in the Gathering Hub, Poses are the way to go. There are more Poses contained in Pose Set DLCs, such as Crouching, Unique, and Weapon Pose (3).
