A new Monster Hunter World update is now out on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, bringing some fixes to the game.

Update 2.01 on PS4 and on Xbox One tweak the bow's Dragon Piercer attack so that it won't be possible to shoot past the attack's angle limitations. The Item Pouch has also been tweaked.

  • 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. 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. (Please note that during Dragon Piercer, if the reticle is aimed at an area outside of the allowed range, the attack will fire in the direction the player is facing)
  • When selecting loadouts during Arena Quests, a bug occurred where the item window order would change. However, this has now been retooled as part of the game design.
    1. From the default cursor position, the item pouch order when checking equipment info will be from left to right.
    2. Next, the fixed items will appear in the following order, left to right: Whetstone, Capture Net, Fishing Rod, and BBQ Spit.
    3. The last items will be the specialized tools, listed from left to right.

Monster Hunter World is now available on PS4 and Xbox One. It will release on PC later this year.
