SNS (Sword And Shield) Is Easy to learn, Hard to Master. It’s Been a staple but an under-used weapon in the MH series. However, it is one of the most Beginner-friendly Weapons.
Let’s take a look at some SNS Combos. Basic Combo 1: Ls(Front)+A->A->A->X+A.
Last time: LS(Front)+A->A->A->X+A. You can use this combo to stun the monster quickly.
Basic Combo2: Ls(NeutraA->l)+->AA.A->AX+
One more time Ls(NeutraA->l)+->AA.A->AX+A. This combo can be used when the monster is down.
Or a Monster’s stun Resistance Already Built UP.
Perfect Rush: Any Attack->Ls(Back)+A->X->X->X.
Again: Any Attack-> Ls(Back)+A->X->X->X. The Input timing is tight, so it’s best to practice first.
Perfect Rush(Dodge Ver):B->HOld A->X->X->X.
Again: B->Hold A->X->X->X. This Combo also Takes Practice to pull off, Its power will be increased if X is pressed at Red flash.
Advance Combo: A->A->A->X+A->Ls(Back)+A->X->X->X->A.

Last time: A->A->A->X+A->Ls(Back)+A->X->X->X->A.
In MH Rise, Perfect Guard is Introduced for SNS. Namely, it’s guard slash adding guard point effect.
Press ZR+A, and you will see a blue aura around your hunter. You will need to do it right before a monster attack triggers a counter.
You can perform it from sheathe; it’s a great opener. And you can also press X Right after a successful Guard.
That can chain you into a Perfect Rush. It can only Guard Against weak Attacks. It Doesn’t work when the monster attack has knockback. It could work wonders with guard-up skills in the future.
Now let’s have a look at Sns Silkbind skills.
