Weapons in Monster Hunter Rise (MHR or MHRise) are the many categories of equipment that is used during a Hunt to deal damage to Monsters. MHR Weapons are divided into fourteen types, each with special requirements and a unique move-set, complete with strengths and weaknesses. The Monster Hunter Rise Weapons have been revamped to include new and unique abilities, which are detailed on their individual pages.

Choosing a Weapon in MHR

When choosing a Weapon, it is important to consider its Damage Type and/or Status Effect to take advantage of a Monster's weaknesses.

  • Raw (Physical) Damage from Weapons is dealt as one of three types: Cutting (Sever), Blunt, and Ammo, while Elemental Damage has five types: Fire, Water, Thunder, Ice, and Dragon.
  • Status Effects do not directly deal damage, but rather build up effects including Poison, Stun, Paralysis, Sleep, and Blast.
  • Monsters' resistance to Raw and Elemental Damage will vary by body part, while resistance to Status Effects vary by Monster.

Additionally, keep in mind that wielding a Blademaster (melee) Weapon will reduce Physical Damage taken, while ranged Weapons will reduce Elemental Damage taken.
