Side Quest Predictions

Could Be Similar to Bounties in MHW

Side Quests in MHRiseEnlarge

There is a huge possibility that the Side Quests in Monster Hunter Rise functions similarly to Bounties in Monster Hunter World!

The Bounty System

Bounties in MHW gives the hunter smaller quests that can usually be done while doing main quests. For those familiar with online games, this is akin to Daily or Weekly Missions. Of course, these quests are not mandatory but they do give a worthy reward when you take time to do them.

Why Should I Do Bounties?

Bounties rewards the hunter with various items like Armor Spheres, Research Points, and Tickets in Monster Hunter World. If this system returns in Monster Hunter Rise, it is still recommended to do these quests!

Examples of Bounties in MHW

We summarized a list of Limited Bounties from Monster Hunter World with all its rewards. This may give you an idea of what to expect!

Could be Similar to Subquests in MHGU

Subquests in pre-MHW games allow you to receive extra rewards when you do an optional quest objective which could range from breaking a certain monster part to hunting another monster altogether! If you clear them, an option to Return via Subquest will unlock that you may use to end the quest without finishing the main objective.

This has of course been removed in Monster Hunter World in exchange for Bounties and the option to Return from Quest!
