All weapons with the ability to aim now also get the ability to aim switch between their normal reticle and the slinger with the weapon drawn. Simply press L2 and R3 to switch these aiming modes.

In addition to this the Bow also gets the added move Thousand Dragons. This is a devastating short-range shot that uses all of your slinger ammo. Note that you can still use this attack without slinger ammo but it will do far less damage. To perform this attack hold L2 and click in R3, then Hold L2, Triangle and Circle simultaneously.

Encouraging Charge Blade users to use the axe form more often, the Savage Axe Slash is added to the Charge Blades already extensive technical maneuvers.

To perform the Savage Axe Slash, when using an Amped Element Discharge or Super Amped Element Discharge, hold down L2. This will perform an upward slash that changes your Axe into a spinning wheel of death known as power axe mode. Each consecutive swing while in this state will use stored phials.

Dual blades get two useful additions to the move set. Firstly is the Claw combo. Enter demon mode using R2 and use Circle 3 times, ending with L2.

This will hit the monster with your clutch claw letting you grapple onto it from the combo. From here you also have a Spinning Rising Slash using Triangle or the other clutch claw attacks as usual.

In addition to this, Dual Blades also gets an additional evade maneuver called Evade Shot. Attack with Triangle and then press L2.

You'll evade to whatever direction you indicate with your left stick, firing a shot at the monster in the process. Keep in mind that this does require slinger ammo.

The Greatswords new addition is an add on to its Charged Slash attack. Charge up to a True Charged Slash, and should that hit be on a soft part of the monster's hide, the second hit will change into a more powerful True Charged Slash. This can be a great combo once a teammate weakens an area of a monster with the Clutch Claw.

In addition to this, Greatsword also receives Slinger Burst, where after attacking with triangle, you can press L2 to fire a powerful slinger shot that can stun monsters for an opening. You can also then immediately press triangle again to combo into a True Charged Slash.

Hold L1, then press Triangle/Y + Circle/B to load the Wyrmstake Blast. This requires slinger ammo.

You can then use the Wyrmstake Cannon Combo to make the shot and lodge the Wyrmstake Blast Stake into the monster's body for a while, then hit the Wyrmstake with shelling to detonate it for extra damage.

With the Hammer, you have two new moves in your arsenal with Iceborne. The first is comboing your charge attack into a Claw Shot. Charge an attack with R2, right after you unleash the charge attack, you can fire your claw with L2, a nice way to stop the charge while keeping the flow of battle. The claw attack changes on the level of charge.

The second added addition is the Slinger Burst, a powerful slinger shot used while charging that makes monsters flinch more. While charging with R2, before unleashing the attack, tap L2 to fire a Slinger Burst.

Like the Insect Glaive the Heavy Bowgun can also switch between its standard reticle and the aiming of the slinger with the weapon drawn. Simply hold L2 and press R3 to change up the aiming.

Holding L2, Triangle and Circle Simultaneously attaches a special scope to your weapon - if the mod is equipped.

When hitting a target from a specific range while using this scope, a super critical blast will be initiated. You'll know by the bright orange reticle. '

The new addition to the hunting horn is the Echo Attack. Pressing L2 after an attack performs an Echo Attack.

The Echo Attack will leave an Echo Mark on the Music Staff. Sometimes performing a melody with the Echo Mark will leave an Echo Bubble, which applies effects on contact.

There are a few new additions to the Insect Glaive. Firstly is the ability to switch between aiming the marker of your kinsect and the aiming reticle of your slinger. You can do this by holding L2 and pressing R3 down.

Secondly, the weapon gets some new mid air attacks. While in air, pressing R2 will initiate a Descending Thrust, while L2 will initiate a Mid-Air Claw Attack.

You can also Charge Your Kinsect with Slinger Ammo.

Hold L2 + Triangle/Y + Circle/B.

Power Charge requires slinger ammo dropped by a monster. This Increases Kinsect attack, and decreases the interval when Kinsect Powder is released.

Spirit Charge requires slinger ammo found in the field. This increases the Kinsect's max stamina and the duration of the hybrid effect for combining three colors (excluding green).

The Lance receives a new Guard Shot technique as well as a Claw Counter Stance.

To perform the Guard Shot, Hold L2 to go into guard stance and then hold R2 to fire a Slinger Burst at the monster.

This Slinger Burst will be a more powerful version of the standard slinger shot that's more likely to make monsters flinch.

Holding L2 and Circle will perform the claw counter stance.

This consumes stamina, but lets you cling onto a large monster with your clutch claw should it hit you. You can also combo into this from a guard shot or counter thrust.

Like the other weapons that aim Light Bowgun also gets an aim switch to make it easy to use clutch claw, but it also gets a few new moves depending on which mods you're using.

With the Evading Reload Mod Attached, shoot, then dodge twice immediately to load while evading.

With the Wyvernblast Type 2 mod attached, Wyvernblast is replaced with a forward firing mine that counters with a large explosion when attacked by a monster.

The Longsword gets some very cool attacks it can easily combo into from many of its other attacks. After attacking you can use R2 and X to go into a Special Sheathe that can be followed up with the following:

Special Sheathe: Attack, then R2 + X/A


Iai Slash: Triangle/Y after Special Sheathe

Use the Iai slash to gradually increase your Spirit Guage. If you land the hit just as the monster attacks, you won't flinch and the gauge will continue to fill up for a longer time.

Iai Spirit Slash: R2 after Special Sheathe

Iai Spirit Slash costs one Spirit Gauge Level but deals massive damage. Use R2 to initiate it. If you land the hit as the monster attacks on this, you won't flinch, and your Spirit Gauge will not decrease.

The Switch Axe's new addition is Power Axe Mode. Mash circle while in axe mode to perform some wild swings. After doing so press triangle to go into Power Axe mode, which increases your damage output while in axe mode.

Like the hammer, the switch axe also gets a new Slinger Burst attack. Press L2 after certain attacks in axe mode to initiate a powerful version of the slinger shot that is more likely to make monsters flinch. Keep in mind that of course you need Slinger ammo.

Sword and Shield gets several new additions to its moveset. The first is the Switch Slinger Burst Aim similar to other aim switches for the other weapons with L2 and R3.

Claw Evade Attack: With weapon unsheathed, evade into a monster and press L2

Perfect Rush: Backstep, Triangle/y (Immediate), Triangle/Y, Triangle/Y, Triangle/Y

Backstep by pressing Circle/B after dodging forward, or hold back on the stick and press Circle/B. Then, immediately press Triangle/Y to start Perfect Rush.

Time the next three Triangle/Y presses when your hunter glows red. The controller will also vibrate when the time is right.

aA buttonAttack Up
XAX + A buttonHealth Recovery (S)

Playing melodies with the Hunting Horn has changed quite a bit from past games in the Monster Hunter series. In Monster Hunter Rise, you can collect the note by simply pressing the designated button and lining up 2 of the same notes wherein the self improvement melody would play automatically. For example, if you want to activate Attack Up, you just need to attack by pressing the A button twice.


Follow Up Moves
X:Left Swing
X+A:Spinning Attack

A self improvement performance that increases speed and prevents enemies from evading your attacks. A great feature of this move is that it's easy to use with quick gauge recovery. You are able to evade as soon as the Performance move is activated, making this one of the Hunting Horn's marked features for MH Rise.

Magnificent Trio

Follow Up Moves
L + X + A: Overhead Smash
L + A: Crush
L + X: Forward Smash

After lining up 3 different notes, use Magnificent Trio to activate all melody effects. Very useful when activated with other moves in combos. If you can't seem to activate this move, you may have taken too much time in between pressing buttons. In this case, try to press buttons simultaneously.

Infernal Melody

Follow Up Moves
L + X + A: Overhead Smash
L + A: Crush
L + X: Forward Smash

A melody that significantly increases all players' attack. This move can be triggered only after Magnificent Trio or Slide Beat. Fill the gauge next to the sharpness gauge by landing attacks and you can activate a special melody. Note that since the gauge does not fill up while this move is in effect, it is impossible to use in succession.

1.3x Increase From Infernal Melody

※ The following info is based on the demo!!

NormalMelodyInfernal Melody
Left Swing424654
Overhead Smash515666

After in-game tests, the increase in attack goes up to 1.3x and lasts for 20 seconds. Although a significant buff, it quickly becomes ineffective so it's important to make as many attacks as possible in this short time frame.

New Silkbind Moves Of The Hunting Horn

Recommended Combos Of The Hunting Horn

Attack Up & Self-Improvement Combo

L+AZR→ Attack or Evade

This combo collects A notes while performing to boost your attack. You can deal damage, maintain status buff, and fill the gauge simultaneously. Link this combo with moves using other notes or evade actions. Once you've stunned the enemy, you can follow up with other higher DPS combos.

Opening Attack & Buff

When you press X or A while the weapon is drawn, the Hunting Horn immediately moves to attack. Taking advantage of this, you may make a Left Swing midair and follow up with one or two Right Swings on the ground and end with Perform to buff yourself. A very useful combo to prepare yourself for a battle as soon as it begins.

Combo To Collect 3 Different Notes

Use this highly damaging combo to collect 3 different notes. If the enemy is knocked down, follow up with Magnificent Trio or Earthshaker to deal devastating damage.

High Power Combo

A combo that activates Magnificent Trio, Infernal Melody, and Earthshaker simultaneously. In the event that you don't have 3 notes to perform Magnificent Trio, you can work up to it and use the next moves first. If you don't have Spirit Gauge to use Infernal Melody, you can exchange this move with something else as well. In any case, utilizing Earthshaker with any combination of moves available to you maximizes this powerful combo.

Utilize On Stunned Enemy

This is a combo that is especially useful toward a stunned enemy. Note that you'll need to collect 3 different notes and must have a fully filled gauge to use this combo.

Changes From Past Monster Hunter

1Does Not Have Complex Note Combinations
2Automatic Self-Improvement
3Evades When Performing
4Change In Sheathing Motion
5New Move "Infernal Melody"

No More Complex Note Combinations


In previous Monster Hunter series, each hunting horn has different effects and note combinations. In Monster Hunter Rise, all Hunting Horns have the same note combination and effects.

Gain Self-Improvement Automatically

In Monster Hunter Rise, self-improvement buffs are automatically rewarded by simply playing the same notes twice.

Use Magnificent Trio To Gain All Buffs

Collect 3 different notes and use Magnificent Trio to gain all Self-improvement buffs at once. This way, you won't have to play each note one by one to gain all stats boosts.

Evades When Performing

You are able to evade at the beginning of a Performance. The Performance action has an attacking motion as well, so you can dodge and attack at the same time.

Change In Sheathing Motion

In Monster Hunter Rise, you can't use a sheathing attack simply by pressing X button once. In order to perform it, you'll need to press another button right after you've draw your weapon.

New Move "Infernal Melody"

By fully charging the gauge next to the sharpness gauge by landing attacks, you can trigger a new move called Infernal Melody. Infernal Melody significantly increases the attack of all players for 20 seconds.

Strengths & Weaknesses Of The Hunting Horn

Strengths Of The Hunting Horn

・Buff oneself and other party members
・Useful evasion and performance moves
・Magnificent Trio and Infernal Melody
・Strong Silkbind Attacks
・Can stun enemies easily

One of the Hunting Horn's highlights is the ability to buff not only just oneself but also all members of its party. In addition to that, MH Rise has given this weapon powerful moves to utilize such as Performance, Magnificent Trio, and Infernal Melody. For these reasons, it is an excellent weapon with both offense and defense.

Demo Evaluation

Through tests on the demo, the Hunting Horn has garnered an evaluation as a powerful weapon with no noticeable weaknesses in comparison to all the other weapons available in the game. Not only is it a high performer in both offense and defense, it also boasts of high mobility and evasion. Very useful both in solo and multiplayer games.

See The Best Weapon Types Tier List

Weaknesses Of The Hunting Horn

・Need to regularly use performance abilities
・Leaves openings when performing its strongest moves

Although relatively easy to operate, you would still need to take caution when fighting foes and regularly buff yourself prior to attacks. Aside from this, although moves like Magnificent Trio and Infernal Melody are powerful, they need time to activate making you vulnerable to attacks during this period. Considering these factors, this is not a weapon that can be fully utilized with just normal attacks.

Tips On How To Use Hunting Horn

Tips & Characteristics Of The Hunting Horn

1Boosts Hunter's Stats
2Increases Moving Speed With Self-Improvement
3Use Attack Up Buff Constantly
4Use Infernal Melody Effectively
5Can Stun Enemies

Boosts Hunter's Stats

You can raise the stats of yourself and other hunters by performing melodies. Play a melody constantly to maintain stat buffs.

Increases Moving Speed With Self-Improvement

By performing Slide Beat, you can improve your stats and increase your speed while the weapon is unsheathed. This compensates for the Hunting Horn's relative slowness on certain occasions.

Use Attack Up Buff Constantly

Attack Up buff is an essential melody to use to increase your DPS. Use it constantly during combat. For other melodies, use Magnificent Trio to trigger them all at once.

Use Infernal Melody Effectively

The attack boost of Infernal Melody only lasts for 20 seconds. Use it right before rushing enemies to fully utilize this effect.

Can Stun Enemies

Landing your attacks on an enemy's head can cause them to get stunned. While the enemy is stunned, you can follow up by raising your attack with Infernal Melody and deal heavy damage with Earthshaker.

The Iceborne hunting horn changes ?
Hey guys,
do you think that the new playstyle of HH is kinda... spammy ? I wanted to pick up Iceborne in the upcoming steamsale (if it is there) and maybe start a new character with hunting horn. I watched some old guides (Arekkz etc.) and some speedruns from the weapon and i love the design but have no actual experience with it (played mostly HBG in base game). But when i compare base game hunting horn playstyle and icebornes version it seems most of the fight is buffing your character at the start then hitting the overhead smash until the monster is ko´d and then spam this new echo note into the face until it stands up again. Most runs never even encore the songs anymore, only when the buffs start to run out and that seems extremely boring.

Im nowhere near a pro maybe not even a ood player (played the game for maybe 100 hours) but im trying to get back into it after a long break... but the gameplay i watch seems a bit bland.

So is the new echo note the highest DPS combo of the HH and the Meta move and encores are dead outside of applying longer and better buffs, because that what seemed so fun in the guides.. to weave in recitals and encores for damage.

I mean, i could just play the old style in iceborne right? But i like to use my most damageing move on downed monsters ("suprised pikachu face"), so i would feel like limiting myself if i dont use the best moves for the situation.

Whats your opinion on that ? PS. If someone wants to party up, i would love to :)

The exact sequence of notes required for a melody, and the melody's effects, vary from Hunting Horn to Hunting Horn. The effects of a melody can range from attack buffs to immunity to monster roars to curing poison, and they effect every hunter near the Hunting Horn; user included. Once the hunter has played all the melodies they wanted to, they can still attack the monster. The Hunting Horn is still a weapon after all, and a very viable one at that. High damage and a simple moveset makes for a strong offense, while dealing only blunt damage makes the Hunting Horn very good at stunning the monster.
