In MH Rise, the Hunting Horn plays like a brand new weapon. This guide will provide you with all the details about the Hunting Horn combo.
It is no longer a HIt-And-Run Weapon. You can play as aggressively as you want with new moves.
Your Bread and butter movie is “Perform”, namely ZB.
It is a fast-hitting move with insane DMG, and 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 performing-“Slide Burst” is ZL+X.
Like Perform, it also Provides Self-Improve and Iframe. You can use it to close the gap as much as possible.
Now you know “Perform,” let’s move on to the basic combos. In MHR, a new move, “Magnificent Trio” is introduced.
When 3 Different Notes (X,A,X+A) are used, It is the fastest way to apply the buffs. You can use it by pressing”ZR+X”.
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. Now lets see it again: ZR->X+A->X->A->ZR+X.
One more time, you 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. Combo2: ZR->A->X->X+A->ZR+X.
This combo is used when the monster is downed or has an opening. Let’s See it Again: ZR->A->X->X+A->ZR+X.
One More Time: ZR->A->X->X+A->ZR+X. You can Skip in the Combo for a short opening.
Now you have learned the basic combos.
Let’s have a look at more advanced Combos. In MHR, Infernal Melody has a new mechanic. You build up a melody gauge by landing hits.
When the Melody Gauge glows yellow, you can use it after Magnificent Trio Or Slide Burst. It also grants song of racing flame, adding 5% raw.
Advance Combo 1: ZL+X->ZR. This combo is for infernal melody after Gap closing. See it again: ZL+X->ZR.
Advance Combo 2: ZR+X->ZR(Magnificent Trio Ready).
It is a great combo on Downed monster/Small opening.
One more time: ZR+X->ZR. Last but not least, we have “Earthshaker”-ZL+A. Due to its Drawn out animation and devastating power.
You can use it 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 monster movements.
That’s about It for hunting horn; let’s Recap Everything. Use perform, slide burst, combo 1 to create an opening.
Then Combo 2, Advanced Combos, Earthshaker to max DPS.
