Hunter Rank is Monster Hunter Now’s leveling system, and reflects your experience as a hunter.
A staple of the main series, progressing through Hunter Ranks will reward you with consumable items such as Paintballs, as well as access to core new features.
Though progressing through the main quest will be your primary goal — especially as it expands your monster list and certain weapon types — Hunter Rank is a useful at-a-glance way to track your overall progress in Monster Hunter Now.
How to get Hunter Rank points (HRP) in Monster Hunter Now
You can earn Hunter Rank points in Monster Hunter Now by:
- Advancing the main quest (depending on the step — ranges from 50 to 150 HRP early on)
- Completing “daily” quests (200 HRP per quest, max three per day)
- Defeating large monsters (10 HRP for 1*, 20 HRP for 2*, 40 HRP for 3*, 60 HRP for 4*)
The ability to gain “daily” quests (found in the Special tab) and large monsters unlocks once you hit HR11, and it’s these which will quickly become your main source of HRP.
The “daily” quest completions offer the best return for your time, and though they cap out at three per day, if there’s one thing you should do regularly, it’s log in daily and make sure you’ve completed them. The added bonus is these mainly focus on defeating large monsters, which themselves also give you a small amount of HRP.
Beyond that, tackling large monsters (which you’ll want to do for parts) and making steady progress through the main quest (which unlocks more monster varieties) is where you’ll gain Hunter Ranks.
So in summary — complete your dailies, progress the main story, and hoover up any large monsters in your path, and your Hunter Rank will increase in no time!
