Monster Hunter Rise Weapons  (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. Thanks to Switch Skills and the Wirebug, Monster Hunter Rise Weapons have been revamped to include new and unique abilities, which are detailed on their individual pages.

Best Monster Hunter Rise Weapons List (Raw)

 

MH Rise Weapons Quick Mechanics

For a showcase of the Best Weapons for Monster Hunter Rise please visit each category page. You can find a full list by element, as well as check out the Builds for each weapon type. Some players may need to make a leveling build for something they can use in order to obtain the best-in-slot items, and we have provided alternatives for this purpose.

  • Some weapons have Elemental Damage that is grayed out and in parentheses. These weapons require a skill called Free Elem/Ammo Up to take effect
  • For information on configuring your Hunter arsenal, see Loadouts (Builds).
  • For information improving Weapons, see Augmentations and Upgrades.
  • Monster Hunter Rise adds New special skills to weapon types. See each weapon page for details.
  • Set Skills return to Monster Hunter Rise.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

 

Choosing a Weapon in MH Rise

When picking 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.

Master Rank Weapons (New!)

Introduced with the release of the Sunbreak ExpansionMaster Rank Weapons are a brand new and more powerful tier of Weaapons available to hunters to help them deal with the deadlier Monsters that can be found on the Sunbreak Expansion.

Note that these Weapons can only be accessed by players that have purchased and installed the Sunbreak Expansion. For those who own the expansionless version of Monster Hunter, these Weapons are unobtainable.
