MH Rise Gameplay

Monster Hunter Rise is a game full of dangerous enemies that want to tear you apart. So to overcome such enemies, the game also provides you with weapons and armor. Armour is a big part of the game, and with the new Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak DLC, the game even got a large variety of Master Rank Armours that are very effective. One such Master Rank Set is the Knight Squire Armour Set. The set consists of 5 pieces. One of the pieces of this set is the Monster Hunter Rise Squires Belt.

Now, if you are acquiring an armor set, then you should first know the Best Armor Sets. Also, you might need to craft and upgrade the armor so that you will need items such as the Gold Lite Ore, Fucium Ore, and even money.
