Monster Hunter Rise: How to unlock all secret Palico support moves in Sunbreak

First introduced in Monster Hunter World, Palicos are your trusty cat companions that you can always rely on to back you up during a hunt even when no other human players are around to lend a hand. These feline friends come in different types depending on what type of support you're looking for when taking on your next mission. Now that the Sunbreak DLC has launched for Monster Hunter Rise, you'll need as much help as you can get to tackle the new class of monsters waiting for you.

What You Need

  • Sunbreak DLC

To help even the odds, your Palicos can now learn new secret Support Moves to further increase their use in battle. Unlike Monster Hunter World, Monster Hunter Rise has five different Palico types you can choose from, each with its own new support move to unlock. Unlike the base Support Moves each type has, which unlocks via leveling up, the new moves found in Sunbreak are unlocked through a different method. To keep your Palico feisty and fierce, here's how to unlock all their new secret Support Moves in Monster Hunter Rise.

How to unlock the secret Support Moves

Again, these new moves won't be earned by leveling up your Palico anymore. Instead, the new moves are obtained after meeting two requirements: finding and talking to a special Palico in the new Elgado Outpost in the Monster Hunter Rise DLC, and then completing their request. There's a different Palico and request for each Palico type to learn one additional move. Here's where to find each Palico to talk to and what their request is.

A giant pal uses a minigun in Palworld.

What monster-collection game would be complete without some Legendary versions to track down and add to your team? Palworld launched with a very respectable roster of Pals across its nine types, but unfortunately, it only has four Legendaries to start. However, even if you have friends along to help you search, this is a massive open world with a ton of ground to cover. If you think your team is up to the challenge and want to take on some of the toughest Pals in the game, here is where you can find all of the Legendaries currently in the game.
All Legendary locations
There are currently four Legendary Pals in Palworld: Jetragon, Frostallion, Necromus, and Paladius. Aside from their raw power, Legendaries in Palworld also have exclusive Legend-level passive skills that give them +20% in Attack and Defense and plus +15% in Movement Speed.

Jetragon is a Dragon-type Pal you can ride as a flying mount that resides in the western region of the map near the volcanoes. You can find it by going north from the Beach of Everlasting Summer fast travel point at coordinates -792, -319.

How to get all Athra Surges in Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown
Sargon leaps in Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown.

Going back to its 2D roots, Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown spices up the formula in regard to design and gameplay to fit the Metroidvania mold. Traversal and navigation are about what you would expect, including the ability to uncover the map by finding a hidden NPC, but combat is a lot more flexible than you might think. In addition to your normal attacks, Athra Surges serve as your most powerful tools to unleash in a pinch. Most come naturally throughout the game, but half are optional and require some extra exploration to unlock. If you want to make the most of your Athra gauge and craft the perfect build in Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, here's how to get them all.
How to get all Athra Surges
There are 10 total Athra Surgest to collect in Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, however, only five of them are given to you through natural progression. The remaining five you will need to hunt down and collect by beating the Alternate Sargon in a fight. He will appear at specific areas on the map, and if you can best him, you will be rewarded with a new Athra Surge. The five you get through normal progression are:

Verethranga's Smite: a dashing attack that deals multiple hits.
Bahman's Breath: spawns an HP restoring area of effect.
Arash's Ray: shoots a beam that can pierce enemies
Bahamut's Rage: creates a massive tornado around Sargon that throws any enemy nearby for damage.
Rashnu's Judgment: puts you in a counter-stance that unleashes a powerful attack on any enemy that hits you while active.
