Minor Monster Hunter: World update fixes Dragon Piercer problem

Inventory bug also squished

Capcom have rolled out a small fix to rectify issues caused by the 2.0 update of open-world adventure game Monster Hunter: World. The new patch – 2.01 or on PS4 and Xbox One respectively – should be live right now.

After the game’s recent balance update, a problem with the bow’s Dragon Piercer attack that caused limitations with aiming when the player was moving rapidly which, given that they probably had a huge scaly giant on their case, was happening more often than not.

Another small tweak has fixed the random order of loadouts, so that your inventory of items and weapons will always appear in a fixed, standardised order on-screen now. The patch notes below tell the whole tale.

Monster Hunter: World is available now on PS4 and Xbox One, with a PC version to follow later this year.

  • 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.

  • Other minor bugs were fixed
