Monster Hunter Rise: How to Capture Monsters
To capture monsters in Monster Hunter Rise you need to fight them until they are weakened and tries to flee the scene. The monster will start to limp and tries to go hide in its den. As soon as it tries to go away, you’ll know it’s the right time to capture it as a skull icon appears on the mini-map next to the monster which indicates that it’s close to death.
Let the monster go away and sleep in its den and then lay a trap near it as it sleeps. You can throw some Tranq Bombs at it to put it to sleep faster and capture it.
Now, before you capture the monster it is best to prepare for the fight. Make sure to manage your items. Craft shock or pitfall traps as well as Tranq Bomb if you don’t already have some.
