Bug Fixes

Online Play: A bug has been fixed that allowed those playing the Arch-tempered Kulve Taroth siege to receive rewards without breaking its horns, if they were online for over eight hours and playing the siege at the eight-hour mark.

Equipment Sorting: A bug has been fixed that caused the Kulve Taroth appraisal weapons to be sorted in a strange manner when sorting equipment by Weapon Tree. This issue affected the following weapon types: Long Sword, Sword & Shield, Dual Blades, Hammer, Hunting Horn, Lance, Gunlance, Switch Axe, Charge Blade, and Bow.

Quests: A bug has been fixed that would not, under certain circumstances, let players skip the opening cutscene during the Fury of El Dorado quest.

Item Sorting: A bug has been fixed where the position of the item used to command Palicoes would sometimes change after restarting the game from the title menu.

Gastodon: A bug has been fixed where players hiding, whether in the bushes or with the Ghillie Mantle, would be detected if they shot, or shot near, a Gastadon. However, if a player previously discovered by a Gastadon hides again (in a bush or Mantle), and fires at the monster, they will be detected. This is by design.

Display Issue: A bug has been fixed where, in certain resolutions, changing the display mode to Windowed occasionally cause the mouse cursor to appear on screen.

Screen Brightness: A bug has been fixed where adjusting the brightness via the start menu—and then restarting the game without saving—would cause a discrepancy in the brightness values shown in the menu, and the actual current brightness.

Multiplayer: A bug has been fixed in multiplayer where a player could retire from a quest, then rejoin the same quest, and attack a monster without causing it to enter a combat state.

Quests: A bug has been fixed where the 4* quest, One for the History Books, would not show up in Search SOS –> Low Rank if the player hasn’t unlocked the 6* quest A Colossal Task.

Behemoth: A bug has been fixed that, at 90 FPS or higher, prevented the proper visual effect from appearing whenever Behemoth began to cast Charybdis.

Gallery: A bug has been fixed where, at higher frame rates, the screen would turn dark for a long period of time if players prematurely ended a movie they were watching in the Gallery.

Windows 10: A bug has been fixed that could prevent the player’s mouse from operating correctly if it was plugged in after opening Monster Hunter: World.

Mouse Camera Controls: A bug has been fixed where vertical aiming controls for attacks such as the Heavy Bowgun’s cluster bombs and the Bow’s arc shots would behave as Type 1 controls, despite being set to Type 2. Additionally, an issue where aiming control speed would change based on the Mouse Sensitivity Vertical Bias values has also been fixed.
