  • Issue: Players have been reporting being randomly disconnected from a lobby when playing with friends.
    • Fix: A potential fix may be making sure both players have the most updated version of Monster Hunter Rise. Other than that, re-connecting your Nintendo Switch to the internet may help.
  • Issue: Frame rate issues may be popping up for some players, with Monster Hunter Rise stuck under the 30 FPS the game plays at while docked.
    • Fix: For some, deleting storage in the Nintendo Switch seemed to have fixed the issue. It's unknown if this is specific to certain users or if Nintendo Switch docks are at fault, however.
  • Issue: Messages telling players that the "required material types gathered" have been achieved for items pops up mistakenly.
    • Fix: At the moment, there is no known fix or solution to this issue. According to users, it seems the issue stems from the game noticing that you have enough of one ingredient for an item and correlating that with having them all.

    • Fix: Capcom has addressed this bug in its latest 1.12 update for Monster Hunter Rise. At the moment, if you're encountering this bug or have had it happen, update your game to the latest version.
