Switch Axe (スラッシュアックス surasshu akkusu, "slash axe") is one of the fourteen weapon categories in Monster Hunter Rise (MHR or MHRise). Like all Weapons, it features a unique set of moves and an upgrade path that branches out depending on the materials used.

 

Switches between Axe Mode, for fluid mobility and hefty single hits, and Sword Mode, for quicker strikes. Phial effects activated by the sword persist in axe form.

      One thing I don't understand is how do you activate that ride monster elemental discharge thingy? Do you have to be moving a specific direction? do you have to not be moving a direction? do you have to be amped? do you have to press "A"?

        What is the effect "Maximum Potency" after a Heavy Slam using axe mode ?
        I'm not sure but does it make easier to reach the "Amped State" in sword mode ?
