Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak enables players to reduce the particle effects from weapon attacks, which will drastically increase the game’s visual clarity, so here’s how you can lower this setting on Switch and PC.

One of the biggest complaints surrounding Monster Hunter Rise was the sheer amount of particle effects that appear when Hunters attack monsters. In fact, when you combine hits from other players, Palamutes, and Palicoes, things can get rather messy. 

This is especially true in multiplayer sessions, where the added player count can increase the visual clutter even further. Fortunately, with the arrival of Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, Capcom now enable players to adjust the hit effects value
