Fend off hordes of monsters in The Rampage
This is a new quest type where you have to protect Kamura Village from hordes of monsters. Use Hunting Installations and occasionally get up close and personal to complete these quests!
The Stage of Battle: The Stronghold
Waves of monsters are on their way! Hunts on a scale like never before! Numerous monsters attack in hordes, led by a Major Threat. The place is crawling with large monsters. As its name implies, the Major Threat is larger and stronger than your average monster.
Various Hunting Installations
During these quests, you can use special Hunting Installations that were developed for the sole purpose of stopping the Rampage. Make use of the prep time in between monster hordes to place these devices all over the Stronghold.
There are three main types of installations;
- Manned Type: Ballistae, cannons, etc. Requires a mounted hunter to fire.
- Auto Type: Activates automatically in certain cases. Examples include Defender Ballistae, which attack nearby monsters.
- Limited Supply Type: Only a certain number of these can be set up, so you may call on Hinoa and Minoto for help, for instance.
Repel monsters to increase the level of the Stronghold. As the level increases, you’ll get to place new kinds of Hunting Installations Unlock new weapons like Machine Cannons to unleash a hail of bullets!
When the Counter Signal is activated, all hunters get raring to go, and gain a significant increase in their attack. This is the time to pick up your weapon and get up close and personal! Beware of Apexes Monsters!
New Feature Switch Skills
As you progress in the game, you’ll unlock the ability to switch out certain regular attacks and Silkbind Attacks at will.
Each weapon has three types of these Switch Skills, granting you a larger repertoire of moves. This new feature greatly enhances the options available to you in combat.
