Monster Hunter Rise Best Graphics Settings Guide⇓

Here, you will find the best settings for Monster Hunter Rise (MHR) for PC. These are tweaked as per the listed system specs. Make sure to change some settings to make it suit best for your PC as well.

Graphics Settings⇓

These are the main settings to tweak for MHR PC. Take careful for the reason for each setting so that you do not have any confusion, when you make the changes for yourself.

  • Screen Mode/HDR Settings – Full Screen (I tested this game for all the window modes, and Fullscreen came on top, in terms of performance)
  • Resolution Settings – 1920×1080 (Should always be kept at native, unless you are facing severe framerate drops)
  • Framerate Cap – 144 (Match this with the native refresh rate for your monitor. This was the most ideal setting for me to get a good framerate boost)
  • Vsync – Off (Unless you are facing massive FPS fluctuations, keep this to off to remove input lags)

Advanced Graphics Settings⇓

This is the section of the graphics settings for MHR, where you dive deeper into the world, texture, and other tweaks needed:

  • Image Quality – 100% (I tested this at lower resolution percentages also, and it did not turn out well at all)
  • High Resolution Textures – On (This will impact CPU load by some amount, but makes the game look a little bit neat)
  • Texture Filtering – High (This has some impact on the visuals. Usually high setting will mean you will have a clearer image)
  • Ambient Occlusion – On (Keep this On for most parts. Since this does not take up too much frames, it is optional)
  • Shadow Quality – Low (I have used the High settings and the difference is not that much. You can have it low and get extra FPS)
  • Dynamic Shadows – Off
  • Equipment Shadows – On (Or off. This one is optional)
  • Processing Reduction Via Model Swapping – Off
  • Mesh Quality – Average (low for entry-level systems like 1050TI and i3/i5 users)
  • Anti-Aliasing – TAA+FXAA (Results in a cleaner image and rendering environment for MHR PC)
  • Foliage Sway – On
  • Motion Blur – Off
  • Lens Distortion – Off
  • Vignette Effect – Default (changes the color contrast for the textures)
  • Depth of Field – Off
  • Film Grain – Off (Turning this On caused the textures to become distorted. This did not look good for me)

Here is an example of Film Grain Comparison:

This is with “OFF” Film Grain:

Tips and guide for more FPS in MHR PC⇓

For the above settings, I was getting a steady 140-144 FPS for most parts. In graphically intense moments, it was dropping to 130-132 FPS, but other than that, I had no trouble in running the game.

If you happen to have an entry level system like a GTX 1050ti and i3 or i5 processors, you can still manage to get some good framerates. Simply dial down the textures if you are not getting enough for your pleasure.

Other that those tips, the game seems quite optimized and you should run it well, even on entry level systems. Here is a video of me testing out Monster Hunter Rise on PC for the mentioned system specs.
