Monster Hunter World tips to help you excel in the hunt

Monster Hunter World is the most forgiving entry to date, but that’s not to say everything is straightforward. Combat, quests, materials and upgrades all have their quirks, and it’s only you put a handful of hours into it that things start to really come together.

To help, here’s a list of Monster Hunter World tips you should be doing or taking notice of as you progress through the Hunter Ranks – perfect if you’re starting with August’s PC release.

If you’re after the essentials, our Monster Hunter World walkthrough and guide can help break down what a hunt entails step-by-step, as well as the variety of activities you can get up to outside main story missions – which we also list in order to help you decide when to push on to a specific monster you want to carve into fancy armour.

Try a range of weapons to see what works for you

There are 14 weapon types to choose between – from swords to bows, and even musical bagpipes and insects – so it’s worth swapping them round between early hunts to get a feel for something you like.

The game recommends a series of ‘beginners’ weapons – as broken down in our Monster Hunter World weapons list – which are no less powerful than other types, but are simply easier to get your head around initially.
