This guide will let you know about the Hunting Horn combos in MHRise.
This guide is mainly for beginners. In MH Rise, the Hunting horn plays like a brand new weapon. It is no longer a Hit-And-Run weapon.
You can play as aggressively as you want with new moves. Your bread and butter move is “perform”, Namely ZR.
Not only it is a fast-hitting move with insane DMG, but it also provides an iframe that allows for aggression.
Additionally, It applies self-improvement buffs.
If you can Master “perform”-ZR, you can master HH. Gap Closer version of perform-“Slide Burst” is ZL+X. Like perform, it also provides self-improvement and iframe.
You can use it to close the gap as much as possible.
Now let’s move on to basic combos. In MHR, a New Move, “Magnificent Trio”, is introduced.
When three different Notes (X,A,X+A) are used.
You can use it by pressing”ZR+X”.
It is by far the fastest way to apply buffs.
Now let’s learn some hunting horn combos. Combo 1: ZR>X+A->X->A->ZR+X. This combo is great for building notes from sheathed.
One more time so that we can commit to muscle memory. ZR>X+A->X->A->ZR+X.
You can change it to: ZR->X->A->X+A->ZR+X.
It has the same effect, but you can roll out to cancel/Dodge.
Combo 2: ZR->A->X->X+A->ZR+X.
This combo is used when a monster is downed/has an opening. Let’s watch it again: ZR->A->X->X+A->ZR+X.
One More Time: ZR->A->X->X+A->ZR+X.
You can skip the ZR in the combo for a short opening.
Now you have learned the basic combos, let’s look at more advanced combos.
In MHR, Infernal melody has a new mechanic. You can build up a Melody Gauge by Landing Hits.
When the melody gauge glows yellow.
You can use it after a magnificent trio or slide burst. It also grants song of raging flame, adding 5% Raw.
Advance Combo1: ZL+X->ZR.
This combo is for infernal melody after the gap closing.
Watch it again: ZL+X->ZR.
Advanced combo 2: ZR+X->ZR (Magnificent tro ready).
It is a Great combo on downed Monster/Small op3ning. One more time: ZR+X->ZR.
Last but not least, we have “Earthshaker”-ZL+A. Due to its drawn-out animation and devastating power.
It can be used as a combo finisher or on tired monsters.
It’s one of the best silk bind skills in the game. It’s a Great punish if you can master the monster movements.
That’s about it for hunting horns. You can use Perform, slide burst, combo 1 to create the opening.
Then Combo 2, Advanced combos, Earthshaker to max Dps.
