How to Use

By

Hammer

The Hammer is a melee weapon that deals blunt damage, which can stun monsters. Though it is a larger weapon, it does not affect mobility. It has the ability to deal powerful charged attacks. The hammer’s spinning charged attacks have the potential to do huge amounts of damage if mastered. However, though it doesn’t affect mobility, attacks are slower and heavier, meaning you need to be landing your attacks consistently. This is especially true of silkbind attacks as you’ll be left momentarily incapacitated following the attacks.

The Hammer has the ability to perform strong charge attacks that deal extra damage but take a little more time to recover from.

Basic Hammer Controls

Below you’ll find the basic controls for the Hammer. Once you’ve gotten to grasp with basic controls, you’ll be able to use them in different orders to pull off various combos.

The Big Bang combo does a lot of damage to a monster if performed right. But other combinations work well too!

Silkbind Controls

Silkbind attacks use up a wirebug and then have a longer cooldown than wirebug moves, meaning you’ll want to make sure to time your silkbind attacks well so that you don’t waste the wirebug.

Attack Controls Description

Impact Crater Monster Hunter Rise Screenshot + Monster Hunter Rise Screenshot With this attack, you’ll jump up into the air and hit out at the monster. You’ll also attack it as you land from the jump. The amount of damage you do during this attack is dependent on how long you charged for. This silkbind attack costs 2 Wirebugs.
