Best Palico skills in MHR Sunbreak

The best sidekick. The BEST.

Monster Hunter Rise upped the helpfulness of Palicoes in the series, especially so in the Sunbreak expansion. Palicoes can now be equipped with Buddy Skills, which allow players to build-craft their furry companions with either support or attack builds. But which skills should be used?

Best Skill for Palicoes in Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak

When it comes to what skills to equip on a Palico, we highly recommend a support build. After all, when it comes to doing damage and actually fighting the monsters, the player and any other co-operators will take care of that. The Palico is best relegated to throwing out heals and keeping everyone topped off on health.
