Monster Hunter


 

A new update is coming tomorrow, April 4th, for Monster Hunter: World on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

The main reason for this update is to fix an issue introduced in the version 2.0 update that caused players not be able to face in the direction of the reticle when using the bow’s Dragon Piercer attack.

“In Update Ver. 2.00, a balance update was done to the bow’s Dragon Piercer attack to fix a bug where you could shoot past the attack’s angle limitations,” Capcom explains. “However due to this update, when the target is lined up with the reticle at a very fast speed and the Dragon Piercer fires, it was discovered that the player may not be able to face in the direction of the reticle. This has been fixed so that even if the player is aiming at a target quickly in a direction they are not facing, the reticle will still be able to aim in that direction.”

Capcom also issued an apology to players taking part in the Monster Hunter Championship 2018 for changing the bow before the tournament begins.

The update will also fix a bug that caused the item window order would change during Arena Quests. Read the full patch notes here.

Monster Hunter: World is available now on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, with a PC release to follow this fall.
