Monster Hunter Rise Layered Armor: How To Equip Cosmetic Armor Sets

Monster Hunter Rise has no shortage of armor sets to craft and collect. But if you’re looking to specialize your character build, then you’re likely going to settle on an armor set that may not visually please you. To circumvent this issue, the game has Layered Armor sets, which are just cosmetic armor sets you can plaster over what you have equipped. Below we detail everything you need to know about Layered Armor, how to equip them, and which ones you can get now.

What Is Layered Armor?

As mentioned above, Layered Armor sets are cosmetic armor sets you can equip onto your currently equipped set. As such, they have no stats and provide no meaningful benefits outside their aesthetic purposes. There are Layered Armor sets available for your hunter, Palico, and Palamute.

Which Layered Armor Sets Are Available Now?

At the moment, there are only a few Layered Armor sets and pieces you can get, all of which are available to you only if you preordered the game, have access to Monster Hunter Rise Amiibo, or purchase as DLC. Below you can find all the available sets and how you can get them.

  • Sinister Seal Armor Set via the Magnamalo Amiibo.
  • Shuriken Collar Armor Piece via the Deluxe Collector’s Edition
  • Long Coat Costume Armor Set via paid DLC priced at $2

How Do I Equip Layered Armor?

First, you’ll need a Layered Armor set. If you purchased or redeemed some via DLC, be sure to chat to Senri the Mailman to nab them in-game via the Add-on Content option. And if you’re looking to get the ones you can unlock by scanning Amiibo, be sure to talk to Kagero the Merchant to get those added into your inventory.

Once you have all your desired Layered Armor sets, go to either the Item Box or the Buddy Board at Kamura Village. You’ll see a new option called “Layered Armor Settings” available in each, where you can select and equip your available sets. You can even save Layered Armor loadouts to make things easier when it comes time to switch them out.
