Monster Hunter Rise Version 3.0 Full Official Patch Notes

Capcom has announced the launch of Monster Hunter Rise version 3.0 update, and it is now live! Players can expect to see new huntable monsters, and a new ending to advance the story as well.


The version 3.0 of Monster Hunter Rise was launched last May 27, 2021 and is now available for the Nintendo Switch which includes the addition of an all-new ending, two new monsters, extra downloadable content and a lot more. This version update is 1.4GB in size. However, players who are playing the game for the first time will need 2.9GB of free space.


The flag ship Elder Dragon from MH Generations XX, Crimson Glow Valstrax, a new Valstrax variety, and Apex Zinogre will all be available in version 3.0. Hunters with an HR of 50 or higher were also given a new mission to complete, which required them to finally defeat Narwa the Allmother! Additionally, after fighting Valstrax, hunters will be able to take up the new Advanced Series Quests from the Gathering Hub. These multi-monster missions will put your best equipment and talents to the test!

The last set of Advanced Quests will unlock and take place on the new Infernal Springs Map after all of the High Rank Quests have been completed. Hunters, take note: these missions are the most difficult yet!


In version 3.0, a few chosen weapon trees received a final Rarity level 6 or 7 weapon, as well as Crimson Glow Valstrax Weapons. New skills were also added following the introduction of Crimson Glow Valstrax and Narwa the Allmother to Monster Hunter Rise:


  • Inflicts the hunter with Dragonblight before boosting all elemental defenses.

Valstrax Soul (Rampage Skill)​

  • Increases Dragon Element damage when afflicted with Dragonblight.


  • Increases Thunder and Dragon attack, and maxes the lvl.1 skills on Narwa and Ibushi armor.

  • Fixed a bug where the dual blades' Demon Mode attacks and the heavy bowgun's melee attack were not included in the conditions for the Latent Power skill.
