What are Bounties?

MHW Bounties.JPG

Bounties are side quests you can complete while out in the field. They are objectives that are not tied to any single quest, but once their conditions are met you get an extra reward. It is recommended that you always have bounties active as they are unintrusive and may be completed while you are going on other hunts.

More often than not these bounties are not that hard to perform while on other hunts and offer good reward, so there's no reason not to get them.
