Monster Hunter Rise Layered Weapons: How To Layer

This guide will explain in complete detail the Layering of different Rampage Weapons available in the game.

Layering is basically a type of customization you can do to your weapons in Monster Hunter Rise. Think of it as applying new skins to your weapons. It adds variety to the game as you can play around with many different aesthetics of a weapon.

Monster Hunter World received the Layering customization at the very end of its development cycle. So, it was a good decision by the developers to add Layered Weapons early on in Monster Hunter Rise. However, as good as this sounds, there are certain drawbacks to the mechanic as well.
