Switch Skill Swap is a new mechanic in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak that enables you to switch between red and blue switch skill swap scrolls. The Sunbreak expansion pack features over 14 new weapons, each boasting a unique pair of switch skills and silkbind attacks.

In order to use Switch Skill Swap in Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak, press (LT for melee or R for ranged) and then Y+B simultaneously on your controller while the weapon is sheathed. On the other hand, Switch players have to press ZL + X + A on their console to use Switch Skill Swap.

This will allow you to change the switch skill you have equipped on the fly. Luckily, this feature has no limit, meaning hunters can Switch Skill Swap as many times as they want.

On top of that, players can also dodge immediately after using a Switch Skill Swap. While it’s a great move to reposition yourself, dodging instantly after using the swap ability slightly depletes stamina from your health bar.

Monster Hunter enthusiasts might know that the Switch Skill Swap mechanic was unavailable in earlier versions. However, the predecessors allowed the hunters to customize their abilities before engaging in battle.
