Monster Hunter Rise Buddies Guide

Monster Hunter Rise Buddies Guide

There are two types of Buddies in Monster Hunter Rise: the loyal Palicoes and the newly-introduced Palamutes. Players can take these Buddies with them on different quests. The best thing about them is that they can customize in a number of ways e.g., eyes, ears, fur, color, etc. Players can also issue different types of commands to their Buddies. These commands can be simple ones like Play, Wait, etc., or a little complex like ‘Let Me Ride!’, use offensive abilities, etc. In this Monster Hunter Rise guide, we’ve detailed everything there’s to know about Buddies in Monster Hunter Rise and why should players use them.

In the table below, we’ve outlined all the differences between Palicoes and Palamutes in Monster Hunter Rise. However, do note that both of them have unique strengths. And since the game allows players to take both of them at the same time, there isn’t any reason not to take advantage of it unless a specific situation requires 2x Palicoes or 2x Palamutes.
