Like in previous entries in the series, Monster Hunter Rise allows you to team up with other players, hunt large monsters and carve them up for parts, then use those parts to craft new weapons and armor for yourself. Some armor and outfits can only be gained via preorder bonuses though, so we’re here to show you how to redeem the preorder DLC in Monster Hunter Rise.
Redeeming Preorder DLC in Monster Hunter Rise
If you pre-ordered the game or purchase the Deluxe Edition, you’ll have some goodies waiting for you when you boot up the game. These are largely cosmetic and have no bearing on actual gameplay, though, so don’t worry about missing out if you only bought the standard edition on launch day.
To redeem your preorder DLC, you’ll first need to play through the tutorial until Senri the Courier asks you to come over to talk to him. Senri is in charge of connecting you to the network and allowing you to play online with friends, but he can also help you claim your bonus items.
While talking to him in Kamura Village, choose the option that says Add-on Content, then choose Check for Add-Ons, and the game will start checking to see if you have any bonus items to collect. Once you’ve done that, choose the Claim option to see all of the items available for you, and then collect them all.
The Deluxe Edition, for instance, comes with the Samurai Pose set as well as the samurai layered armor. The poses can be accessed from your character menu, while the layered armor is accessed by checking the item box and choosing the Layered Armor option.
As more DLC and add-ons get released for the game, you can always go back to Senri and claim them if you choose to purchase the items.
