Sandy Plains is a Location in Monster Hunter Rise (MHR or MHRise). Different areas of the game have a different look and feel, map and special unique monsters that spawn within them. Some areas are safe from monster attacks, and large locales are often divided into Areas by number.


A desolate wasteland, filled with aggressive monsters that hunger for flesh and blood.

During the day, the sun beats down on the plains mercilessly, but at night it's lit up by the cool moonlight.

      By far my favorite map. Not the easiest to traverse but by far the most unique. This map has so many different locations, the large valleys separating landmasses, several different oases dotted around the map spice it up as well. And the dunes on the top of the map are just badass when fighting there.
