Dispatching the Meownster Hunters
Once you're ready, you can dispatch your Meownster Hunters by playing a mini-game. Fire your Palicoes from the cannon to the specified targets to obtain materials.
1. Pick a Locale
You can check the details of each locale on the Touch Screen. Stronger monsters will appear as the number of stars (★) increases. The number of locales and monsters that appear in Meownster Hunters increases as you progress through the story.
2. Choose Your Palicoes
You cannot send out Palicoes that have low Enthusiasm. When their Enthusiasm is high, their Search Area is larger, and they may also be able to bring back more materials.
Each Support Bias has its own uniquely colored Search Area. Palicoes can obtain more materials from monsters or areas of the same color.
Each Palico has a circular Search Area around them. If this Search Area overlaps with the Material Area, then your Palico will gather materials from it.
十字ボタン or スライドパッド： Aim Your Shot
*You can also aim the cannon via the red arrow icon on the Touch Screen.
*You can fire a Palico via panel on the Touch Screen.
Lボタン or Rボタン： Change Members
*You can change Palicoes directly via the panel on the Touch Screen.
Xボタン： Switch View
You can tell if a Palico's Search Area overlaps with a Material Area if their default full-body display shows them bouncing up and down excitedly.
Switching views will switch to a face icon, and the Search Area can be clearly seen. Switch views again to display the landing area, and the search area will be hidden so you can check where the Material Area is. Switch views one more time to go back to viewing your Palico.
These secret areas are discovered when your Palico passes by them after they've been fired. Readjust your aim once you discover a secret area if you wish to land there.
4. Receive Your Rewards
*Certain Quests do not count towards finishing an Expedition.
When viewing the results of an Expedition you can see what materials a Palico has picked up, and if there were any RARE or WARNING secrets in the Expedition, you'll see where they were too.
You can take rewards, sell them, or send them to your Item Box. After an Expedition, your Palico's Enthusiasm will decrease dramatically.
