Monster Hunter Rise amiibo guide – rise to the occasion with your plastic pals

Make mincemeat out of monsters with our Monster Hunter amiibo guide

Several different Monster Hunter Rise amiibo are visible

The Monster Hunter series is renowned for being pretty tough. Those giant beasties are meant to pose a challenge, and half the thrill of the titles is figuring out strategies, weapons, and armour that work for you to finally best these gigantic foes. Monster Hunter Rise brings news foes to the battlefield, alongside brand new weapons and armour for you to experiment with. You’ll need the very best!

It’s important to look good while battling as well, so luckily Capcom has included Layered Armour. These are special outfits you can wear over your armour, so you can wear a fancy matching outfit while keeping the stats of all your favourite armour underneath. While this can be found in the game, another way to unlock outfits are with the Monster Hunter Rise amiibo.

These fancy little figures don’t just look good on your shelf, they also unlock special things within Monster Hunter Rise. While some unlock extra items, others unlock very special bonuses, and we’re about to break down exactly what these are. So grab your plastic pals, get comfy, and ready yourself for the hunt ahead.

What are Monster Hunter Rise amiibo jackpot prizes?

When you scan the Monster Hunter Rise palico amiibo, if you get a jackpot you’re rewarded with an Outfit Voucher.

When you scan the Monster Hunter Rise palamute amiibo, if you get a jackpot you’re rewarded with a Mega Demondrug.

When you scan the Monster Hunter Rise Magnamalo amiibo, if you get a jackpot you’re rewarded with a Heavy Armour Sphere.

Where do I buy Monster Hunter Rise amiibo?
