The basic equipment of each hunter is 2 Wirebugs. Their number is always displayed at the bottom of the screen. After using a Wirebug, its charge will be depleted. In order to use a Wirebug again, you will have to wait until it is restored. These charges regenerate have different cooldowns, depending on the type of movement performed by using a Wirebug.

Wirebugs - use

Wirebugs have many applications, thanks to them you can - Monster Hunter Rise: Wirebugs - Basics - Monster Hunter Rise game guide

Wirebugs have many applications, thanks to them you can:

  1. Quickly move around the region - Press ZL A to jump forward, ZL B to perform a high jump. After these movements, Wirebugs' charges get restored very quickly;
  2. Run along the walls - While holding ZL and pointing the camera at a high wall, press ZR. Your character will soar into the air and jump on the wall. While on the wall, hold the R to run along it. Read more about this on a separate page of the guide: How to run on the wall?;
  3. Use them as Silkbugs - When you have your weapon drawn, press ZL A or X. Silkbugs will jump out of the Wirebugs and deal massive damage to nearby enemies. If you are fighting with a ranged weapon, press R A or X;

Each weapon has 3 different Silkbugs attacks. You will start with 2, and unlock the 3rd via the ability change system unlocked later in the game.

  1. Run away from monsters' powerful attacks - If you're fighting at a close distance, you can use Wirebugs to get away from the monster. Sheath your weapon with R, point the camera in the right direction and press ZL A to escape the attack;
  2. Dodging - During a fight, you can be knocked out or thrown into the air. To avoid hitting the ground, press ZL B right before you fall;
  3. Hang in the air - When you launch yourself up with a Wirebug, hold A to hang on it in the air. You can hang on like this forever, but the Wirebugs' charges won't fill up. Using objects while hanging is also impossible. However, this trick is very useful if you want to avoid, for example, the enemy's charge;
  4. Move faster when transporting large objects - Your hunter carries larger items, such as monster eggs, with both hands. You won't be able to ride on the dog or run fast. The best way to transport a large object to the guild chest is to use Wirebugs. Press ZL A or X, or point the camera anywhere and press ZR. Once you're standing over the precipice, you can use a Wirebug to jump down safely.
