How To Use The Clutch Claw

Similar to the grappling hook in Monster Hunter: World, players need to aim it to a unit. To successfully grapple onto monsters, you need to keep attacking the monster and once it staggers and stopped moving, you can now aim the clutch claw and jump into the air for a grapple. While you’re clinging onto the monster, your stamina will be consumed depending on the monster’s movements.

Clutch Claw Controls

  • Hold L2 + Circle – Aim and fire clutch claw to grapple
  • R2 (Flinch Shot) – Use a Flinch Shot on a monster’s head to push it in the direction it’s facing. This allows you to slam monsters into walls or push them off ledges to topple them.
