Monster Hunter Rise: Rush Release Date

Rush will be jumping from the Mega Man series into Monster Hunter Rise on September 24. This will be part of an update set to add in the latest Capcom collab. There will likely be some extra event quests as well. We'll be sure to update with the full patch notes once we have them.

How to Get Rush the Dog

To get your hands on the Rush Palamute Layered Armour set you will need to complete the Event Quest that is added in as part of the update. We don't know what it is yet, but it will likely follow the same structure as the Amaterasu armour and Akuma set earlier this year. These had special crafting items that needed to be collected from a certain quest. You had to play them a few times to get what you needed.

Rush Armour Abilities

The Rush armour does seem to have some abilities tied to it, even if they are just visual. You can jump off of Rush's spring to get to higher platforms. There's a rocket booster mode as well when riding. These seem to be closely tied to the standard Palamute moveset, so it won't be anything game changing.

That's all you need to know about getting Rush the Dog in Monster Hunter Rise. For more on the game be sure to check out our 2021 Roadmap. Elsewhere there's our look at Farming Talismans.
