What is a Turf War?

A Battle Between Monsters

Battle Between Monsters

Turf Wars are special battles between monsters in an area first introduced in Monster Hunter World (MHW). Monsters that fight in Turf Wars often unleash flashy and powerful moves to defeat the other monster!

These monsters fighting is a sight to behold and can help a hunter immensely so always try to instigate one!

Monsters Take Damage

In a turf war, monsters take a lot of damage from each other. Some monsters even have their stamina reduced by a large amount while some even get their parts broken. Hunters can surely take advantage of Turf Wars while hunting!

Easier Wyvern Riding

One of the conditions for Wyvern Riding is monsters damaging another monster in which Turf Wars have an important role. In addition to broken parts and reduced stamina, the losing monsters will always be mountable after a Turf War. Keep an eye out!

How to Start a Turf War

Only Happens Between Certain Monsters

Monster in a Turf War

Turf Wars only happen between certain monsters. You would not see a Great Izuchi dare challenge a Magnamalo in a Turf War, right?

Also, knowing which monsters fight each other gives you the knowledge to better prepare for the other monster too. This allows you to utilize other monsters to help you in fighting.

Only Happens with the Hunter Present

When Hunter is Present

Monsters will just stare at each other when you aren't in the same area. This means you cannot lure a monster to another monster's area and leave them to fight - you have to be in the same area as them.

Instigate using Endemic Life

Endemic Life that can lure multiple monsters in the same area are great for starting Turf Wars. These Endemic Life are as follows:

Name Description

Hunting Helper
A weasel that sprays special pheromones that attract monsters.
Wailnard.pngWailnard
Hunting Helper
A pheasant with a unique red sac. Its call draws in large monsters.

    • Give us the ability to change our layered armor display. What I mean is, ya know how armor looks different on the male and female models? well, I wish there was the ability to change the appearance from the male models of armor, to the female models, and the reverse without changing the gender of your character itself. This would be really nice, as imo some armor pieces look better as the male model version.
