Monster Hunter World: 5 Best Tips for Beginners



Monster Hunter World is a fantastic game for players to play. If you enjoy fighting giant creatures and using your various weapons to take them down. Then this is a game you will undoubtedly enjoy. The game sees players teaming up to battle giant beasts, which can often overwhelm a player if they aren't careful, so a lot of the time, knowledge can be the difference between victory and defeat. So without further ado, here is Monster Hunter World: 5 Best Tips for Beginners.

5. Use Different Weapons

Learning to use different weapons is part of the learning curve in Monster Hunter. For players who are unfamiliar, you are able to equip all weapon types and make them at the Forge really early on. However, with so many weapons to choose from, players will have to consider what kind of playstyle they like. And pick a weapon that adapts well alongside them. This is really important to player progression as many of the monsters in which you will fight will be weak to elements that you will get from other monsters.

Many of the weapons also have different status effects as well, which can be applied to the monsters. This means that players can study the monster in which they want to hunt and learn what it is weak to before the fight. This is all part of what makes Monster Hunter World so great. There are so many elements that go into fighting monsters that there are many ways to approach a fight. In conclusion, players can use different weapons to sway the battle in their favor. For example, if the enemy is weak to Blunt damage, then use a hammer to become extra effective.

 4. Eat Before The FightGames Every Foodie Will Love

If players are unaware, you can ask your Palico friends to cook up some tasty dishes that will apply buffs to your entire party. These can range from attack or defense boosts, as well as many other effects. Sometimes, if you are off to an exceptionally challenging fight, these buffs can really be a make-or-break item. Many of the dishes range in the ingredients you will need to make them. However, for the most part, you can exchange Meal vouchers for meals and get by just fine.

While this may be an often overlooked step, being fed before the fight will truly make it easier and add more sustainability to your party. The player will also be graced with additional skills upon eating. These differ based off of what food you eat, so experiment to see what works for you. Keep in mind that you can also cook while out in the wild by using the Cooking Spit item. This allows you to cook various types of meat to snack on while on a hunt. All in all, like in life, eating is essential in Monster Hunter World.

3. Stock Up on Healing Items

There are various types of potions and items that can heal the player throughout a hunt. It is a fantastic idea to keep some of these on you at all times. This is in no small part due to the unpredictability of the monsters you face. Sometimes you will get hit with a bleed or other status effects, from which you will have to recover. Not doing so will be extremely detrimental to your hunt and overall experience. So whenever you can, make sure that you are grabbing herbs in the wild until you gain the ability to cultivate them via the Botanists.

Healing items are not the only items that players will want to stock up on either. Traps are a fantastic idea, as well as heals for different poisons. Also, making sure that your Bow users are stocked up with ammo which you can purchase from the Merchant, is a great idea as well. While it may seem like a rather easy tip, sometimes bringing a Mega-Potion, or ten will be the difference between a successful hunt and having to rerun the hunt after being one shot.

2. Bring Friends

Bringing friends on your hunts with you will not only make them more enjoyable. It will also significantly increase your team's utility. This way, multiple players will be able to bring different items, and it isn't all on one play to stock their inventory. However, the way to party up with friends can be a bit complicated for those uninitiated about the Monster Hunter franchise. So a quick rundown is in order. First, you will have to join your friend's server. And it is from here that you will be able to be invited to a party in order to hunt monsters.

This helps in a lot of ways because having friends there with you will make trapping monsters easier, as well as whittling down their massive health bars. Sometimes running a particularly tanky monster by yourself can take what feels like ages. After all, is said and done. However, you usually have a decent amount of loot on you that you can use for something we will mention in the next tip.

1. Craft Armor Sets

Crafting Armor Sets can be done by visiting the Forge in the main hub area. Doing so will require you to farm out different monsters typically. Once you have accomplished this, you will be able to make a complete set of armor styled in the creature you defeated to make it. This is where the set bonuses come in. Players that use a specific type of armor will be able to access Set Bonuses. These Bonuses can be a number of things, from stacking resistance to differing defense stats and so on.

It is also crucial that the player understands this as they are going to be expected to be wearing the proper armor for any fight they are in. For example, if you know that your foe does fire damage, then bringing Fire resistant armor is a great idea. Crafting armor sets might be a little bit of work as many of the ores and materials you will need have to farm in the world on Expeditions. But it is well worth it to become more powerful in Monster Hunter World.
