All the new Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak armour

The new DLC brings a load of new monsters, and you know what that means? More bits to carve off and turn into Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak armour. Yummy!

Various Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak armours on characters on a stone bridge in front of a stone battlement.

Monster Hunter has a strange game loop. If I told you that there was a game solely based around murdering animals and using their skin to make outfits and then heading back out wearing their body parts to murder more of them you’d probably think that was sick. And not in a good way.

But it is good! In fact, it’s great, addictive fun. Monster Hunter Rise captures this magic loop perfectly, as Capcom has managed to do for every game in the series. As with previous entries, there’s huge new DLC too, and with it, there’s new Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak armour on the way too.

So, get ready for some beast slaying and armour making with all the armour we’ve seen so far. We’ve got a guide to the new Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak monsters if you want to know what creatures you can take down, a Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak weapons guide for new ways to slay, or a Monster Hunter Rise amiibo guide if you want to put these beasts pride of place on your shelf.

Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak armour

Capcom has revealed a few monsters’ armour so far, which you can see below. We’re yet to see the armour for the elder dragon Malzeno, but that’s bound to be a big reveal, considering it’s the headlining monster for Sunbreak.

Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak Magma Almudron armour

The Magma Almudron gear looks quite futuristic with its glowing red parts. You have to take down the firey version of Almudron if you want to get your hands on it.

Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak Astalos armour

The Astalos armour hasn’t changed much when compared to the Monster Hunter Generations Astalos armour. That’s by no means a bad thing — with its glowing green look you’re bound to stand out.

Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak Aurora Somnacanth armour

Rather than making you sleep, like the standard Somnacanth, the Aurora Somnacanth subspecies uses ice. They also have some very cool armour which you can check out above.


The large flying wyvern Seregios was first introduced in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. It’s making its return in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, and you can check out the armour you can make from it above.

Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak Garangolm armour

Garangolm is a fanged beast that looks a bit like a gorilla. They have a stony shell covered in bits of moss. The armour replicates its helm and shell, as you can see above.

Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak Lunagaron armour

Lunagaron is a fanged wyvern that looks a bit like a wolf. They’re a little similar to Zinogre or Nargacuga, with this masked armour covered in crystalline spikes as you can see above.

Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak Shogun Ceanataur armour

The Shogun Ceanataur is a nasty, nasty crab, a big bad hard-shelled meany that no one likes. If you want to grab that great looking armour above, you’re going to have to bash through that mean thing’s head.

Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak Blood Orange Bishaten armour

Bishaten, the crazy monkey baseball pitcher that everyone hates, is coming back, but this time with flaming pinecones to make the experience nicer for everyone involved. Like many of the new armours, theirs has a mask, but unlike others, it also has wings.

That’s just a handful of the Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak armours you can find, so be sure to come back for more as we see them. Check out our Monster Hunter Rise: weapons guide to work out what techniques you can use to carve them up..
