Fight to the beat
The hunting horn is a fast and powerful tool capable of empower your team members through music. Each attack of this weapon is capable of emit musical notes which, when combined correctly, are capable of activating various bonus effects. Furthermore, the horn is classified as a blunt weapon and consequently is able to stun monsters (although not as effective as the hammer).
From this brief description an extremely strong and flashy weapon emerges, but be aware that this has not always been the case. Originally this it was one of the least used weapons by gamers but, as you will discover in the course of this guide, in Monster Hunter Rise the hunting horn it has become much more powerful and fun.

But remember that, unlike the other weapons of Monster Hunter Rise, fighting with the hunting horn you will also need to keep in mind the musical notes you are generating (we’ll talk more about this mechanic in the next paragraph of the guide).
In addition to the basic moves mentioned above, the horn allows you to perform a further technique by pressing “ZR“. This attack doesn’t deal much damage, but it is capable of immediately activate a specific buff musical.

Consequently you will have available 3 note diverse applicable by pressing “X“, “A” e “X+A“.
Once activated, the notes they will go to position themselves on a score placed under your resistance bar and, according to their order, you can activate melodies.

After placing on the score at least one note per type you can press “ZR + X”To play an extra melody called harmonic trio. Once activated, this technique will allow your hunter to perform a long and powerful series of attacks that is also capable of instantly apply the effects of all your melodies.
