NPCs in Monster Hunter Rise (MHR or MHRise) are non-playable characters that the hunter meets and interacts with. MHR NPCs are colorful characters with varied backgrounds, different specializations and unique goals and characteristics. Some NPCs are vital to the main Story, whilst others provide background chatter, lore, or Assigned and Optional Quests.
- Most NPCs are found in Kamura Village and Elgado Outpost, but you may meet some out in the field as well.
- Elgado Outpost and the NPCs within are only available with the Sunbreak Expansion.
Major NPCs in Monster Hunter Rise are the key characters in Kamura Village and Elgado Outpost. Most play key roles in the story, run many of the Facilities found in the home bases, as well as provide major services. These are the people the hunter will interact with the most and many serve as guiding figures to the hunter's progression.
Minor NPCs are those who are not necessarily integral to the story and provide only supplementary services. Nevertheless, many of these characters are the sources of most Requests in the game and are a key part of the optional activities. In many cases, they provide meaningful lore and backstory, and help to color the world of Monster Hunter Rise.
