Those who pre-ordered Capcom’s latest entry into the series received some interesting pre-order bonuses, in the form of Layered Armor. Those who purchased the Deluxe Edition would have received some too.

For pre-ordering Monster Hunter Rise, players gained access to a pair of Layered Armor items, they are as follows:

  • Palico Forest Cat Costume layered armour

Players who purchased the Deluxe Edition of the game also gained access to three more Layered Armor items – these are:

Redeeming these items is relatively simple.

First of all, players need to get far enough through the game to speak to Hinoa, the Quest Maiden.

Following that, players should receive a prompt, letting them know the extra content is available.

From there, players can head across to the courier (who is actually a Palico) and initiate a conversation with them. Players will need to select the “Add-on Content” option and then they can simply accept all items.

Equipping the items is equally as simple. Players just head across to the Item Box, select the “Layered Armor Sets” section and then equip the armor they require.

What Stat Boosts does the Layered Armor offer?

Unfortunately, none. The Layered Armor items in the Monster Hunter series offer no boosts and are purely there for cosmetic purposes.
