Capcom has published two new weapon videos for Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak. Each video showcased the Lance and Long Sword, respectively. As with all other weapons, both of them will receive new alternative moves and Silkbind Attacks.
The Lance will receive Skyward Thrust as an alternative Silkbind Attack to the Anchor Rage counter move. The Hunter will use the Wirebug to jump up high and thrust the weapon downwards. Capcom will also add Shield Tackle that can instantly deal blunt damage as a replacement option for Guard Dash.
The Long Sword will have a new Silkbind move named Harvest Moon, though it has no relation to Natsume’s farming simulation game franchise. It will generate a ringed area where counters executed inside will deal more hits. Capcom will also add Sacred Sheathe Combo as a new alternative to Special Sheathe.
Capcom has been gradually publishing weapon videos for Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak since May 16, 2022. It had previously released videos for the Switch Axe, Great Sword, and Gunlance, to name some of the fourteen weapon types available in the game. Following this wave, Dual Blades and Light Bowgun are the last two weapons yet to receive their own videos.
Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak will be available for Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam on June 30, 2022.
