A patch has been released for Monster Hunter World addressing issues caused with update 2.00.

Monster Hunter World patch 2.01 (PS4) and (Xbox One) are now live and ready for download.

According to the patch notes, when balance update 2.00 was applied to the Dragon Piercer, the goal was to fix a bug which caused players to shoot past the attack’s angle limitations. This caused a new issue to arise.

“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,” said Capcom in today’s patch notes.


“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.”

Another fix in today’s patch addressed loadouts during Arena Quests. There was a bug which occurred where the item window order would change. This has now been retooled as part of the game design, said Capcom. Details on the change are below.

  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.

Monster Hunter World version 2.00 was released two week ago, and brought with it the first DLC boss, Deviljho.
