Monster Hunter Rise Videos Show New Insect Glaive and Gunlance Moves

Monster Hunter Rise Insect Glaive and Gunlance

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.
