Hey Hunters,

Welcome to our third instalment of the Kamura Hunter’s Hub, our regular community update for you, the Monster Hunter Rise Steam community!

In this week’s post we’ll be highlighting the offensive capabilities of Wirebugs through the use of techniques called “Silkbind Attacks”, as well as taking a look at two more Monsters and their updated textures for the PC release of Monster Hunter Rise.

We’ll then wrap things up with another visit from Sunbreak’s Director Suzuki, who’s sharing some interesting information on a newly revealed Monster that’s coming to Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak in Summer 2022.

Let’s get stuck in!

Beginner’s Guide – Silkbind Attacks!
Maximise your combat potential!

Now that we’ve covered how to successfully utilise Wirebugs for mobility both in and out of combat in our previous two posts, it’s time to shift our focus to use Wirebugs to go on the attack!

Before we do though, if you missed our Beginner’s Guides on getting to grips with Wirebugs, you can quickly read them here:

Wirebug Actions: Part 1
Wirebug Actions: Part 2

Ok, all good? It’s Silkbind time!

Explanation and Usage

Silkbind Attacks are powerful moves your Hunter can use throughout a quest. Like other Wirebug moves, they are contextual, meaning that in order to use these offensive moves you’ll need your weapon drawn when pressing your button inputs. If your weapons are sheathed, you’ll instead do a Wiredash.

Each of the fourteen weapons available in Monster Hunter Rise come with their own, unique Silkbind Attacks, of which two are equipped at a time. As you progress through the game you will unlock alternative abilities, further empowering you to customise your Hunter’s move set to suit your playstyle. (We’ll let you discover what they are!)

Pro Tip: All Silkbind Attacks require at least one Wirebug charge to use, with more impactful abilities requiring two and having a slower recharge time. Keep this in mind when weighing up your options during a fight!

Let’s look at just a few of the moves you’ll be getting to grips with…

With melee weapons, you’ll need to hold the left trigger and press either Y or B on your Xbox controller to do Silkbind Attacks.

For ranged weapons, you’ll need to hold the right bumper and press either Y or B on your Xbox controller to do Silkbind Attacks.

Longsword - Serene Post

Be the calm before the storm with this counterattack!

Hammer – Impact Crater

Leave a mark and build stun damage with this powerful aerial attack!

Light Bowgun – Silkbind Glide

Let your shots flow like water as you dash closer to the enemy to unleash a powerful shot!

That wraps up our brief introduction of Silkbind Attacks in Monster Hunter Rise. From powerful ground and aerial attacks, to counters and more – we’re excited to see how you adopt these flexible moves to really master your hunts!
