Keep Stronghold Safe With Hunting Installations
The flow of The Rampage consist of intercepting the hordes of monsters that invade the village by utilizing the Hunting Installations. The hordes come in waves, and the time is fixed for each. The basic principle is that you prevent the monsters from invading the village for each wave.
Aside from the main goal, you're also able to take and complete sub-missions. If you clear a sub-mission, you get to keep the spoils of the mission even if you fail to accomplish the main quest's goal. Doing these sub-missions will also strengthen the stronghold, so aim to do a few throughout the quest.
① Place Hunting Installations
Begin by setting up the Hunting Installations with the prep time you're given before the hordes arrive. Note that Hunting Installations may also be placed during battle, so there's no need to force everything all in one go.
Installations May Be Exchanged
Even if you place a Hunting Installation previously, you'll be able to exchange it with something else by removing it. As your Stronghold level increases, new Installations will be released, so make sure to exchange them as needed.
If by any chance that during your prep time you find that you're done and want to skip to the battle, you can hold the R stick. By doing so, you can cut the time to start with battling the hordes immediately.
② Start Defending Using Hunting Installations
Use the Hunting Installations you prepared to intercept the arriving monsters. Your first and most important priority is to protect the barrier. If the monsters are able to get closer to the Stronghold, it would get increasingly difficult to fight them off.
Signal For Hunters To Attack
When the signal for counterattack is given, the attack power of hunters increases significantly. This is the perfect time to attack directly with weapons.
The Gong Hunting Installation enables the Counterattack Signal to be activated any time. However, note that the time is shorter compared to the one that happens naturally throughout the quest. The Gong's ability to raise attack power increases with the Stronghold level so make sure to utilize this when the Apex Monsters appear.Check Out The Apex Monsters List
③ Intercept 2nd Horde The Same Way
Once you successfully intercept the 1st Horde, aim to do the same with the 2nd horde because the flow will be the same. The only time it will change is when the 3rd Horde come sand a large-scale battle will occur where Apex Monsters will appear.
④ Complete The Quest By Repelling All Hordes
If you successfully intercept all hordes from invading the village, you succeed in the quest. Either you do that or you defeat the main Apex Monsters.

Quest Failed If Stronghold's Final Barrier Gets Breached
The Stronghold has 2 barriers, and if this final barrier gets breached, you will fail the quest. Note that if you complete at least one sub-mission, you get to keep the rewards. However, the spoils of the game will obviously be less than if you succeed in completing the main quest.
Hordes Will Come in 3 Waves
The Rampage is a battle to prevent hordes of monsters from invading the village. The hordes will come in 3 groups and will increase with each wave and will have a main, leading monster for each group.
Hordes Attack In 2 Stages
The hordes attack in 2 stages, wherein the the stronger monsters come at the latter stage. Based on the trailer, the stronger monsters appeared around 2 minutes later. Also note that Apex Monsters will come instead of the aforementioned stronger monsters in the 3rd Horde.
Different Types Of Monsters
|Aims For Hunters|
|Aims To Destroy Barriers|
|Attacks From Far Distances|
The Rampage has several types of monsters with the main differences being those that mainly attack hunters or barriers. Aside from that, there are those that have golden borders that signify the horde leaders and Apex Monsters.
Place Hunting Installations During Prep Time
You're given 2 minutes to prep before the hordes come in. Make sure to place as much Hunting Installations as possible during this time. Prep time will also be given even before the 2nd and 3rd hordes.
2 Main Interception Areas
There are mainly 2 areas wherein monsters may come in to destroy the Stronghold, and so it's necessary to place Hunting Installations for both. This is especially important during the 3rd Horde when the Apex Monsters are set to appear.
Strengthen Stronghold By Beating Monsters & Doing Sub-Missions
There's a Stronghold Level which rises as you successfully defeat monsters and complete sub-missions. As the Stronghold Level increases, more powerful Hunting Installations become available for use. In some cases, the formerly available Installations will become stronger as well.
3 Types Of Hunting Installations
|Manual||Player operated installations|
|Automatic||Installations that operate automatically|
|Limited||Installations with a limited number|
The Rampage has 3 types of Hunting Installations that you can utilize. Note that there are installations that are limited in number, so make sure to strategize well so that you can place them in areas that would be of the most benefit to you.
Kamura Village characters (NPCs) may also be requested to join the battle through a Hunting Installation. The trailer showed only Hinoa and Minoto, but much like the other installations, more characters are introduced to battle for you as your Stronghold Level rises.
Note Counterattack Signal For Buffs
In The Rampage, the hunter's strength goes up when the Counterattack Signal is given. Aside from this, you can manually create a shorter Counterattack Signal with the Gong.
Wyvern Riding Is Possible
Wyvern Riding is also possible during the Rampage. The keys here are to choose your timing well and to pick the strongest monsters to ride in order to make defending the village easier.Check Out The Wyvern Riding Guide
Monsters During The Rampage In MH Rise
Monsters Appearing Regardless Of Habitat
The trailer showed us Rajang and Diablos who were uncharacteristically in the area despite their usual habitats. With that, it's safe to assume that all sorts of monsters will come despite their usual ecology and areas. There's also a possibility that ancient dragons may appear.
There will be larger monsters that will be leading the hordes and it seems that they are larger than their usual types. It seems that it's a goal of this quest to repel these large monsters.
The Rampage features really powerful monsters called Apex Monsters. They seem to only appear via the 3rd Horde of the Rampage. Handling them would be similar to the large monsters, however, they're expected to be so much stronger.See The Apex Monsters List
