Monster Hunter Rise has amiibo compatibility. On this page you will find details about what amiibo works with the game, as well as information about unlocking.
What Amiibo is working on Monster Hunter Rise
Because Monster Hunter Rise has amiibo functionality, you will be able to scan and read any amiibo. It is also three Monster Hunter Rise amiibo which is:
- Magnamalo amiibo
- Palamute amiibo
- Palico amiibo
The type of amiibo you scan provides different rewards and unlocks.
Where can I buy Monster Hunter Amiibo
The three Monster Hunter Rise amiibos are currently exclusive to GameStop in the US, and are selling out fairly quickly. You can try to order them from Amazon Japan, which price difference is minimal even with shipping, but these will not be shipped until June. IGN offers tweets when these are in stock at GameStop.
Amiibo rewards and unlocks
There are two types of rewards and unlocks you can get from amiibo in Monster Hunter Rise.
You can enter amiibo lottery. You can scan some amiibo to participate in this lottery every day. However, there is a limit to this and you can only scan amiibo three times a day for this. You will receive useful (but not exclusive) items, such as traps, bombs, etc.
The three exclusive Monster Hunter Rise amiibo will also unlock special bonuses. That’s all Sinister Seal cosmetics inspired by Magnamalo and varies depending on the amiibo you scan. Remember that these armor sets are armored in layers – they have no statistics and are meant to be used on top of normal armor just to change your look.
- For Magnamalo amiibo, you will receive a Sinister Seal Layered Armor set for your hunter.
- For Palamute amiibo, you will receive a Sinister Seal Layered Armor cosmetic for your Palamute.
- For Palico amiibo, you will receive a Sinister Seal Layered Armor cosmetics for your Palico.
How to use Amiibo
To use amiibo, you need to talk to Kagero grocer on the market. Here you can choose Les amiibo to start using them.
Once the amiibo is read, you have the option to enter amiibo lottery or claim bonuses.
The Amiibo lottery is similar to the regular market lottery you can participate in when there are sales in the game.
How to equip layered armor
Now that you have claimed your bonus, you must equip your hunter’s armor in the goods box. Layered Armor for your Palico and Palamute can be equipped on the Buddy Board.
