Best Hunting Horn Songs

Top 5 Hunting Horn Songs for Offense

Best Songs for Offense and DPS
Song Explanation
Hunting Horn Songs and Effects | Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak|Game8 (5)Sonic Barrier Contrary to its official in-game description, Sonic Barrier doesn't negate damage. Instead, it provides you and your teammates a one-time barrier that negates getting flinched or knocked back by attacks, getting stunned from roars, wind pressure, and tremor. This song can be repeatedly played to give you and hunters constant immunity from interrupts!

Attack Up and Affinity Up all-in-one meal. Their independent songs are also good if both are not available in one note.
Hunting Horn Songs and Effects | Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak|Game8 (10)Elemental Attack Boost Good for boosting overall elemental damage, especially in Sunbreak where elemental weapons are stronger!
Infernal Melody It is recommended to use this as often as you can since it is available in every hunting horn and provides an attack boost.

Top 5 Hunting Horn Songs for Comfort

Best Songs for Utility and Comfort
Song Explanation
Hunting Horn Songs and Effects | Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak|Game8 (12)Self-Improvement An essential hunting horn buff for increasing your movements speed and attack deflection.
Hunting Horn Songs and Effects | Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak|Game8 (13)Sharpness Regeneration Good for significantly reducing the need for you and other hunters to sharpen.
Hunting Horn Songs and Effects | Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak|Game8 (14)Stamina Use Reduced Useful for stamina management and giving more breathing room for hunters with stamina-hungry weapons.
Hunting Horn Songs and Effects | Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak|Game8 (15)Earplugs (L) Great to have to power through monster roars uninterrupted!
Health Recovery (L) or (S) Overall a great healing song that gives flat health recovery to you and your party. Health Regeneration is also good but for Sunbreak skills like Dereliction that interrupt or shut off your natural healing, it is best to go with Health Recovery instead. Health Recovery (S) + Antidote is also available on some hunting horns. Best used against monsters that afflict poison status like Rathalos or Chameleos.

Focusing on comfort, the above hunting horn songs are recommended to use in situations requiring more survivabiltiy and utility. There are many more songs to check out so feel free to adjust them to one's playstyle as needed!

There are three types of notes you can play through the three different basic attacks. Different song effects are activated by using their corresponding notes.

By default, activating one type of note with Melody Mode: Performance requires that you play the same note twice in a row to play a song.

With Melody Mode: Echo, you only need to play one type of note once and use the Chord move (zR, MB4, R2, or RT) to activate a song. Using the Chord move will activate all notes placed on the staff.

How to Use the Hunting Horn

Songs Expire Over Time

Hunting Horn Songs and Effects | Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak|Game8 (70)
It should be noted that all songs expire after a period of time, so make sure to keep an eye on their color and keep them active! When the song is white, that means it is inactive. When it's orange, that means it's currently active.

Of course, there are exceptions to this, which are the songs with one-time effects like Health Recovery (S) and Sonic Wave.

Songs Not Exclusive to Notes

It should be noted that songs aren't exclusive to one note. For example, one Hunting Horn could have Defense Up tied to the blue note (Kamura Chorus), while another Hunting Horn can have it on its red note (Zurogong Primo), and another would have it on the green note (Frilled Flute).

So keep an eye on what Hunting Horn you're using and what songs it offers! Not every Hunting Horn is made equal, and some are just bound to be better than others.

Same Melodies Don't Stack

Playing the same melodies at the same time only refreshes the melody timer and does not stack the effects and time.

For example, if you play an Attack Up melody one after another, it will not stack the attack buff and the remaining melody timer.

Infernal Melody Can't Be Played Simultaneously

If there are two Hunting Horn users in your party and both have Infernal Melody ready, only one can play the Song of Raging Flame at a time.

The other Horn user must wait for the first Song of Raging Flame to expire before they can play!
