Setting Up Online Multiplayer

1. Touch the Hunters Hub icon on the World Map and select Multiplayer, talk to the Flight Cattendant, or travel directly to the Hunters Hub from Bherna and select Online Hunters Hub.

2. Select Online Play, then either Create Hub or Search Hubs.

Creating a Hunters Hub

Invite other players to join your Hunters Hub.

When creating your Hunters Hub, you can set up criteria for the type of hunters you want to play with by designating Hunter Type and Quest Type. If you set up a passcode, make sure your friends know what it is! All of these settings can be changed afterwards by selecting Settings & Search under Wireless Settings in the menu. The settings you can adjust are the same as in Local Play.

Searching for a Hunters Hub

Search and join Hunters Hubs via the Internet.

In the search results screen, the Hunters Hub name will appear. Select a Hub to view details such as the hunters currently in the Hub and Quest status.
(Press Xボタン to search for Hubs again.)

Target Priority

Designate which monster you'd like to hunt.

Quest Type

Designate which Quest you'd like to do.

Host's Hunter Rank

Set the range of HR you want in your Hunters Hub. You can select any value between 1 and 999.

During a Quest

Set whether you want to show Hubs that are already in the middle of a Quest. If you select Don't Search, only Hunters Hubs that haven't departed on a Quest will be displayed.


If you select Don't Search, only Hunters Hubs with no passcodes set will be displayed.
If you select Search, only Hunters Hubs with passcodes set will be displayed.

Friend List

Search and join a friend's Hunters Hub.

If your friend is Available, then they are currently online playing the game. If your friend is marked as Recruiting!, that means they have sent you an invite.

If your friend has set their Hunters Hub passcode setting to Everyone, you will need a passcode to enter. However, if the passcode setting is set to Exclude Friends, if the host (marked by a red frame) is not on your friend list, you will need a passcode to enter.

If your friend is Unavailable, they are currently not online playing the game. Additionally, if your friend has set their system settings to hide their online status, even if they're playing online they will be shown as Unavailable.

Search by ID

If you want to search for specific Hunters Hubs online, enter a Hunters Hub ID. The Hunters Hub ID is displayed on the bottom right portion of the Top Screen when you press STARTボタン while in an Online Hunters Hub. While this is an easy way to get together with friends, if a passcode is set, other players will need to enter a passcode to join.
*The Hunters Hub ID is displayed only while not in a Quest.
