Light Bowgun Control in Monster Hunter Rise
The general control for Light Bowgun remains the same as in other Monster Hunter entries. You can place Wyvernblast with A, fire off with ZR and aiming with ZL.
The biggest change is the Silkbind attacks, you will need to using Right Button and X/ A to perform Silkbind Moves
Light Bowgun Silkbind Attacks | Monster Hunter Rise
Similar to Heavy Bowgun, during combat, your Wirebug control is the Right Button, as the ZL button is already used for aiming. If you have just switched from a melee weapon, this could take a while to get used to. Overall, it’s pretty intuitive after some time.
- Fanning Vault – R + A. A forward vault that allow you to fire in mid are for the enemy below you. Pressing A during this will fire out a Wyvernblast directly below you. This adds more mobility to Light Bowgun
- Silkbind Glide – R + X. This is by far my most favorite move for Light Bowgun, aside from pulling you forward and closing the gap with the monster, you can also follow up with ZR to deliver a powerful close-range blast.
Fanning Maneuver can be treat as an alternative of Fanning Vault, instead of Jumping, you can now swiftly change your position on the groud. This skill also boost your Attack Power.
Light Bowgun Playstyle
Just as Heavy Bowgun, Light Bowgun playstyle revolves around picking the right ammo types. Specifically for Light Bowgun, some ammo type comes with Rapid Fire option – which greatly speeds up your rate of fire.
Depend on your builds an preference, you can follow with the classing Spread RF builds or something more orthodox like Sticky Ammo build for LBG
Remember to use your new Silkbind Attacks! Fanning Vault can be a great move to setup Wyvern Blast, or escape during a tight situation.
Silkbind Glide is your ultimate this time. This skill allow you to quickly close in and deliver a powerful attack.
