Scale Heights Using Wirebug
A new feature in MH Rise is the Wirebug, a gadget that allows you to stick to walls to swing and propel yourself. This opens a new dimension to movement since you will be able to climb hard to reach places and easily attack from above.
Dependent On Your Weapon Type
When used to attack, the Wirebug's movement and combos are dependent on your weapon type. Each weapon type has a different way of utilizing the Wirebug, adding another set of possible combos to the staple weapons.Check Out The Wirebug Guide Here!
