Special Investigations will let you fight extremely powerful Afflicted Monsters! This will unlock upon reaching Afflicted Research Level 300. Read on to know more about how to unlock Special Investigations, and the rewards for finishing them!

How to Unlock Special Investigations

Complete a Level 300 Investigation

To unlock special investigations, Hunters will need to reach Anomaly Research Level 300 and clear a Lv. 300 Anomaly Investigation. Upon beating the investigation, you'll be notified that a special investigation is now available. Only the hunter who posted the investigation will be rewarded the special investigation (only once).

Beware, the monsters in Special Investigations are super aggressive and boasts moves with wider reach!

Hunters with Anomaly Research Lv 221 Can Join

Special Investigations have a join condition of Anomaly Research Level 221. As long as someone is hosting the quest for you, you won't need to grind all the way to Level 300 to participate! It's still best to be prepared as these are still the most challenging quests in the game.

Special Investigation Rewards

They may be no special rewards, but completing many Special Investigation quests of different monsters will reward Hunters with a new Badge of Heroes! Wear it loud and proud - you've earned it!
