Monster Hunter Rise - Gunlance Weapon Guide

The Gunlance is one of the fourteen weapon types the player can pick when hunting Monsters in Monster Hunter Rise. The weapon type benefits from dealing thrust-based damage along with firing blanks and explosive shells, guarding from incoming attacks through heavy shields, its high range and counter attacks, and its special move, Wyvern Fire, that deals huge explosions compared to other weapon types.
