Insect Glaive Weapon Tree for Monster Hunter Rise (MHR or MHRise) features the different upgrade paths for the Insect Glaive weapon. In Monster Hunter Rise, there are 14 categories of weapons that players can choose from to use for hunting Monsters. The Insect Glaive commands insects called Kinsects to absorb essence from your prey and buff yourself. Vault into the air, kick your foes, and attack from all angles while airborne. This page lists all of the Insect Glaives in Monster Hunter Rise, showing their effectiveness and upgrade paths.


Insect Glaive Weapon Traits

  • Unparalleled aerial abilities.
  • Rapid, flowing attacks with a good range.
  • Kinsect provides strong self buffs. Unlike in Monster Hunter World, Kinsects can't be upgraded in Rise and are instead bought from the Blacksmith. Their level and stats depend on the Insect Glaive you're wielding.
  • The insect glaive can be used to control a Kinsect, a small insect that harvests extracts from monsters to boost your abilities. The insect glaive also allows you to vault, so you can perform jumping attacks at any time.
