Monster Hunter Rise PC Keyboard Controls (Default Keybinds)

monster hunter pc controls

Monster Hunter Rise has just been released on the PC and we have the complete default key binds for you right here. You’ll need to get a hold of these key binds in order to play the game in the most efficient way possible. While there are a few bugs and issues that are plaguing the game, the developers have copied most of their overall layout from Monster Hunter: World.

As always, you’ll be able to change any of these binds if need be. However, we recommend keeping them at their default if you are using a mouse and keyboard.
