How to Increase Hunter Rank

This is a guide on how you can increase your Hunter Rank in Final Fantasy XV. Read on to learn more about Hunter Ranks and their corresponding rewards!

Hunter Rank

Hunter Rank determines how experienced you are in the field of bounty hunting. Your rank can be increased as you successfully defeat a bounty hunt mark.

Stars are awarded for every successful bounty hunt and the number of stars obtained depends on the hunt.


You can only get your rewards together with the stars after you report back to any tipster. You will get the exact same rewards even if you report back to another tipster instead to the tipster that gave the hunt to you.


Each hunter rank give better rewards the higher the rank is so aim for the highest rank!

Higher hunter rank also unlocks more difficult bounty hunts which also rewards the player better items upon completion.
