When you’re battling against the gigantic monsters in Monster Hunter Rise, your primary goal beyond defeating them is to obtain the precious parts. You’ll need many of them to upgrade and craft unique equipment for your hunter. A good way to earn specific parts from a creature is by breaking off their parts. Here’s what you need to know about breaking monster parts in Monster Hunter Rise.

If you’re attempting to cut off a monster’s tail, you want to use a weapon that specializes in sever damage. You’ll want to use an Insect Glaive, Lance, Long Sword, Dual Blades, Sword and Shield, or a Great Sword to remove these parts from a monster. But these weapons are not as good as blunt damage when removing monster horns or armor pieces.

Blunt damage is a powerful weapon type that allows you to smash armor right off a monster. You want to use the Hammer, Hunting Horn, Switch Axe, or a Charge Blade. You want to bash these massive weapons against the monster’s most protective locations continually until the parts fly away.

Working together with hunters is a good way to make sure you have both sever and blunt weapons available during a hunt.

You’ll find the parts on the ground during the battle. You’ll need to wait to grab them while the monster is fleeing, there’s a spare moment in the middle of a fight or the precious time you have after defeating a monster to collect your new resources.

Breaking off monster parts can take time and precision. You’ll find yourself battling a monster over and over again until you receive all of their parts. You can always refer to your Hunter’s Notes to investigate the overall chances of how certain monster parts drop off a creature.
