Monster Hunter Rise PC | Best Camera Settings for Gameplay

This guide is a Veteran’s Camera Setup Tips for beginners in Monster Hunter Rise. I have included some quick words and screenshots for better  game-play. If you are a veteran, you do not need this. It is much less of a guide than a short note I made for beginners.

I might add more later on – for now I just want to share a suggestion for beginners, how to tweak their camera settings by copying my settings from screenshots.

Best Camera Settings For Smooth Gameplay In MHR PC


Its a very simple and very personal guide. It is useful and important enough so I consider sharing it here. Maybe I will delete the guide soon enough if I notice it is unneeded. For those who have problems copying the settings from the screenshots – change these:

  • Camera Shake: Off
  • Camera Style: Do Not Focus on Target
  • Target Camera Controls: Type 3
  • Target Camera Vertical Settings: Don’t Match Height
  • Focus Camera Restrictions: No Restrictions
  • Camera Terrain Adjustments: Off
  • Dynamic Camera Settings: Off
  • Camera Distance: 100

After I plugged in my Nintendo Switch Controller, switched B and A, the most important settings I had to tackle were the camera settings. The default ones are questionable at best. They are made for a game-play originated on a handheld console.

You looked this guide up out of curiosity. Nothing much but me saying “these are good”. I cannot offer you much more aside from my experience as a veteran hunter.

I played most of the franchises games since the Nintendo DS, bought and played twice Monster Hunter World and Monster Hunter Rise on PlayStation 5, PC and Nintendo Switch.

With over 400 hours in each game, I assure you: if you like control over the battle field with more freedom of movement, you need to check the camera settings and tweak them to your liking.

With the screenshots, you use what I am using. If it fits you – I do not know. This is what it is: a veteran’s camera settings information. I hope it helps beginners to make their starting days a little easier in becoming a veteran hunter. Happy hunting!

Some Other Quick Tips

Quicker Quest Ending – Hang in there!

You can skip the quest ending sequence by hanging around. That way you might miss out on cool Palico/Palamute animations. But once you know them all, why not?

Free Items at Cohoot Nest

Easy to miss if you do not know about this. But there is a tree in the training area for Palamutes and Palicos which you can climb.

Flash Protection

While you may already know, you can bring down flying monsters with a flash bomb, stun divers with a sonic bomb – some monsters use flash too. Now, the obvious protection is using a shield.

The more elegant solution: just turn the eyes of your character away from the source of flash. It takes less than a second before the monster uses flash, and you can keep fighting without the need for a shield. Simple enough, right?

Use Kunai on Item Lizards

Kicking an item lizard gives you one item. Using a Kunai gives you up to three items.

Item Load-out Suggestions

Note for beginners
The last four red and orange items you can see on the low rank screenshot are endgame items. Do not mind them to start with. Load-outs are made with crafting extra traps in mind – preferably shock traps, for monsters immune to shock comes the beta variants. Bombs are for sleeping monsters.

There is a moment you do extra damage. And since monsters tend to flee to sleep in their lair when you beat them enough, you want to make use of that advantage moment where you can deal a lot of damage easily by utilizing bombs. Especially in multiplayer it is a beloved tactic you should learn to coordinate and put into practice.

Note for veterans
“Refills” take into account that boosting items like Demon and Armor Potions’ effects last the whole hunt, unless you faint.

Note for observant hunters
The load-outs are arranged so by going from left to right you find the correspondent refill version. Only for ranged weapons I have very specialized load-outs.
