Insect Glaive in the game is one of the best weapons when it comes to utilizing aerial damage. Not only the attacks are incredibly quick, but they’ve also got incredible reach. In addition to this, the weapon gets a lot of sustain, thanks to Kinsect. In this Monster Hunter Rise guide, we’ve detailed everything about Insect Glaive, its controls, skilbind attacks, and best combos.


Monster Hunter Rise Insect Glaive

Following are everything players need to know about how to play with an Insect Glaive effectively:


First of all, let’s talk about the basic controls for Insect Glaive:

  • Rising Slash Combo: X
  • Wide Sweep: A
  • Kinsect: Harvest Extract: ZR + X
  • Kinsect: Recall: ZR + A
  • Kinsect: Fire: ZR + R
  • Kinsect: Mark Target: ZR
  • Vault: ZR + B
  • Aerial Attack: X while Airborne
  • Jumping Advancing Slash: A while Airborne
  • Midair Evade: A while Airborne

Skilbind Attacks

There are three Skilbind Attacks in total that players can use in the game:

  • Skilbind Vault: ZL + X
  • Recall Kinsect: ZL + A
  • Diving Wyvern: ZL + A

The first Skilbind Attack that we’ve got is Skilbind Vault. It lets players spin forward and follow-up with a Jumping Advancing Slash or an airborne evade. Recall Kinsect allows players to call their Kinsect that perform spinning attacks and scatters healing all over the place – it also completely recovers stamina at the end. This can be switched out by Diving Wyvern which’s a powerful downward attack with a small damage radius. The damage output of the attack, however, is pretty good.

  • A, X, A, LS + B
