Head To Training Area To Try Out Weapons
It's not a good idea to try out weapons during hunts. If you really want to find which weapon fits you, head to the training grounds where you will be able to use them as you like.
Melee Weapons Recommended For New Hunters
If you're new to the whole franchise, we recommend trying out the melee weapons first. Unlike long-range weapons, they have high defense and understanding their attacks is easier. Gunners costs money for ammo as well.Check Out The Best Weapon Types Here
Progressing Your Quests
Prioritize Village / Story Quests First
Village or Story Quests will advance the story and your overall progression in the game. They also unlock new features and other quests will become available the more you advance through the story.
Clear Quests Marked In Red
In your quest list, you will find quests marked in red. These quests are the vital quests that you need to complete to be able to do the next batch of Village quests. It's recommended that you do them as soon as you can.
HR Level Goes Up After Clearing Specific Quests
Similar to previous games, there is a Rank Cap until you complete specific quests. If you want to continue your progress through the game, you will need to do these quests, but be aware that they will be a challenge to complete.

What To Do When You're Stuck
Upgrade Or Use Better Weapons / Armor
Upgrading is an essential part of Monster Hunter. The farther you progress, the more difficult the monsters you will face. Having stronger weapons and armor is a must. Take time to create your build and your hunts will become significantly easier.
Make Use Of Talismans & Charms
Talismans and Charms provide passive buffs that will strengthen your hunter during hunts. You do need to create a build of this as not all Skills are useful for all weapon types.Check Out The Melding Pot Here
Other Recommend Ways To Progress Through Quests
|1||Study Monster Information|
|2||Item Preparation & Eating Food|
Study Monster Weaknesses & Information
Whether it's elemental weaknesses or attack patterns, all monsters have a weakness that you can exploit when fighting them. This will take a bit of trial error, but learning monster moves and how to dodge them is essential to beating them.Check Out All Confirmed Monsters List
Prepare Items & Eat Before Hunting
Bring items that you're sure to need during hunts. Antidotes and Nulberries are not always needed, but having them in your inventory is a good addition just in case. Eating food before leaving will also give you status buffs so don't forgot to do it!
Use Spiribirds During Hunts
Spiribirds provide different buffs to players when they are encountered. When you see one on your route to the monster, don't avoid them! They're a good way of getting free buffs on the way to the hunt.
Try Hunting With Other Players
Hunting with other players is a good way to learn from others! Other than helping you complete the quest, hunting with others will show how other players tackle the monster and you give pointers on how you can do so as well.Check Out The Online Multiplayer Guide Here
