The new skills come from specific armor sets that players can find and acquire by defeating some of the powerful new monsters that have been added to Monster Hunter Rises Sunbreak in its Title Update 1. So be prepared to go hunting if you fancy one of these powerful skills. 

Adrenaline Rush

Adrenaline Rush can be acquired on Lucent Nargacuga's armor set and is activated when the player performs a perfectly timed evade just as the monster attacks. Doing so successfully gives you a substantial attack boost (of up to +30) for roughly 30 seconds.

This skill is a massive boost for Bow players as you can keep your distance but get a free damage boost as you dodge monsters' attacks from a distance. And since it's an evade, you can dodge any attack, and it will trigger the Adrenaline Rush. 

Element Exploit

Elemental Exploit is found on the Silver Rathalos' armor set, and its skill allows you to increase your elemental damage when attacking body parts that are weak to the current element you are using. making this a boon for elemental weapon users. 

Regardless of the weapon sites that you use, long-range attackers such as Bowgun and Gunlance users, etc. will benefit highly from this as the rapid attacks can compound quickly, dealing tons of damage. 

Sneak Attack

This skill can be acquired on Lucent Nargacuga's armor set as well, and as the name Sneak attack implies, you will essentially deal extra damage to large monsters if you attack them from behind. And the "from behind" aspect is relative since you don't have to be directly behind it, the monster just shouldn't be looking at you. 

This means if the monsters are distracted, and you can find a way to strafe around them and attack from behind, or at any angle where the monster is not looking at you, you'll deal way more damage. Making it a skill that has a few tactical uses as well. 


The Guts skill is found on the Seething Bazelgeuse armor set and is more of a self-support skill, as it allows you to prevent fainting once when you take damage that exceeds a certain amount of your remaining health pool. Not necessarily an offensive skill, but one worth having if you love to run head first into battle and tank many hits from the monsters. 

Status Trigger

Status Trigger is found on Gold Rathian armor, and the skill requires you to perform a perfectly timed evade just as the monster attacks to trigger an abnormal status buildup on it. This means that every hit you deal will inflict a status build-up on the creature.

This is more effective on melee builds as after doing and closing in for melee combos can deal tons of damage, and also give you more chances to inflict the buildup. Whereas guns deal the effect each time you begin to fire and stop firing. 


The last skill from Gold Rathian armor grants the player an increase in defense when large monsters become enraged. This is once again a more defensive skill and is useful for those who want some extra insurance when taking on the larger monsters.
