Capcom released Monster Hunter Rise weapon introduction videos for the Insect Glaive and Gunlance. The videos give us a look at the new unique actions for both of the weapons. The official website shared more information about the new moves.
Monster Hunter Rise – Insect Glaive
The first Insect Glaive action in the video is “Silkbind Vault.” It starts with a leaping attack, which can be followed-up with a Jumping Slash, Jumping Advancing Slash, or Midair Evade. The second action, called “Recall Kinsect,” calls back your Kinsect while dodging. While returning, the Kinsect performs a spinning attack that scatters healing extracts. It will also fully recover its stamina once it returns to the hunter.
Monster Hunter Rise – Gunlance
The first new action from the Gunlance is “Hail Cutter.” This action performs a Rising Slash, then an Overhead Smash, but the best part about it is that it reduces Wyvern’s Fire’s cooldown. “Guard Edge” allows you to guard against a monster’s attack to regenerate your weapon’s sharpness. You can also follow-up the Guard Edge with various attacks.
Here’s a list of all the previous Monster Hunter Rise weapon trailers:
Monster Hunter Rise will release worldwide for the Nintendo Switch on March 26, 2021. A demo will appear for a limited time in January 2021. Capcom will release a series of themed jackets inspired by the game in Japan.
