Killing a monster is an easy concept, but one of the more intimidating prospects for newer players of Monster Hunter: World is the idea of capturing monsters. Some quests will call for the mandatory safe capture of a monster alive and you will fail if you kill it by mistake. What makes it so daunting is that the game never explains how to go about capturing monsters…

Bringing your strongest weapons and armour and just wailing wildly at the large beasts of Monster Hunter: World isn't always the best option.

Monster Hunter: World Palicos: how to upgrade them, where to find Grimalkynes

Let's face it, Monster Hunter: World's Palico are adorable little sidekicks. These cats follow you into hunts, all the while desperately trying to keep up as fast as their little legs can carry them.
