This guide details everything you need to know about all of the different options that are available to help you correctly lock-on to your monster.
How to Lock On to Monsters
Getting the hang of the combat in Monster Hunter Rise can be a little challenging, so why not utilize the handy lock-on feature that can make attacking monsters just that much easier.
There are two ways that you can lock onto monsters; firstly, you can use the default Target Camera option, which can be activated by simply pressing the right stick and selecting the monster you want to lock onto in the top left corner and then pressing L. This will allow your camera to turn in the direction of the monster automatically.
Next, we have the Focus Camera, which can be activated by pressing the + button and heading to the Options menu. From here, head down to the Camera settings and then change your Camera Style to Focus Camera. The Focus Camera is an excellent option for any beginner, as not only will your camera turn in the direction of the monster you’re focusing but your reticle will also always stay on the monster. While it may take a little getting used to, definitely consider trying out the two different camera options to find what works best for you and your playing style.
