Let Random Hunters Join

Join Requests.png

Hunters can send out Cohoots that bring 'Join Requests' to Gathering Hubs in which random hunters jump in your ongoing quest.

These random hunters can only jump in your quest if they are looking for the same quest.

Monster Difficulty Scales Up

With more players accepting your join request, the stronger the monster becomes. As difficulty scales depending on the number of Hunters present in a quest.

Sending out a Join Request can only be done when you are online.

Nintendo players will need a Nintendo Memebership to access this feature while PC players can do this as long they are online.

If a friend and I are in the same lobby together, can we both respond to the same join request and enter the same quest that 1 or 2 other hunters are working on? By the way, Great work to everyone who worked on this Wiki guide. Very helpful!
