“Gunlance” and “Insect Glaive” Monster Gun Rise Trailers

Monster Hunter Rise

Capcom has launched a new set of trailers for Monster Hunter Rise introduction of Gunlance and Insect Glaive weapons.

Here’s an overview of each weapon, via Capcom:


Unpleasant, explosive artillery. Gunlance assembles an impenetrable defense with high-powered ballistics. Bathe your prey with plenty of bombardment and eliminate massive damage with Wyvern’s signature fire attack.

“Guard Edge” is a silk attack that takes the attacks received and restores the clarity of the weapon, making it ready for retaliation.

Sword Insects

The ace of air combat. Insect Glaive excels in aerial hunting tactics with the combination of an agile staff and a Kinsect that absorbs monster essences, turning them into buffs.

“Remember Kinsect” is a silk attack that returns to your Kinsect as you dodge. As he returns, he will perform rotary attacks that scatter restoration extracts, healing the hunter and regaining all resistance.

Previous gun trailers have introduced Hammer, Sword & Shield, Heavy Bowgun, Light Bowgun, Lance, Long Sword, Bow and Dual Blades.

Monster Hunter Rise will be released for Switch on March 26, 2021 worldwide. A limited-time demonstration will be launched in January.
