Monster Hunter: World Tips

  • Track your prey and wait for the opportune moment to strike. Look out for other predatory enemies and try to plan to fight bigger monsters in areas with access to ledges and other environmental pieces that can help you out.
  • Make sure your weapon is sharp and ready for battle anytime you get ready to run in headfirst. Heading into battle without a fully sharpened weapon means you’ll need to break sooner to use your Whetstone, which can give your enemy time to reflect and recuperate its strength.
  • Trail after a monster when it begins to flee. It’s normally headed back to its lair, where it hopes to sleep off its tiredness in peace. This can be a good time to ambush the monster, as you can often get in some good hits while it is waking up. Just remember that many monsters have smaller predators that protect it while it’s sleeping, and you may need to retreat if you become overrun.
  • Don’t be afraid to fall back. Fainting shouldn’t be an option when you’re fighting monsters in the wild, and you shouldn’t be afraid to fall back and recuperate a little. Look around for healing items, or just hide out while the monster searches for you. Make use of bushes and other items to keep concealed until you’re ready to strike again.
  • Use your sling to lead monsters away from larger groups. This reduces the chance of you being overrun and creates a more one-on-one fighting style that will prove better for you in the long run.
