How To Use Wirebug In MH Rise

Different Buttons For Blademaster And Gunner

Blademasters and Gunners will operate differently as seen above. The common point here is that they may only be used while the weapon is unsheathed.

Wirebug Gauge


Silk bind attacks are activated by using up the Wirebug Gauge. Gauge consumption and recovery time vary per Silk bind attack. If you use Wirebug without thinking, you might not have enough gauge to perform certain attacks at opportune times, so make sure to save your gauges for Silk bind attacks.
