Part 3. Weapon Customization in Monster Hunter Now

weapons in monster hunter now

Monster Hunter Now offers excellent character customization options. However, you get what you get when it comes to the weapons. For instance, there aren’t any skins you could use to change the weapon’s appearance.

How do you get different weapons in Monster Hunter Now?

The only way to “customize” your weapons or change them in Monster Hunter Now is by unlocking new ones or upgrading them.

When you start the game, you’ll only have access to the basic sword and shield. To unlock new weapons in Monster Hunter Now, you must rise through the hunter ranks and progress along your main quest. You can do that by combating the monsters you come across on your map.

For the great sword, dual blades, and lance, you’ll have to complete the first stage of the quest, “Chapter 2: Shimmering Swamp”. For the bow, light bowgun, hammer, and long sword, you’ll simply need to get to Hunter Rank 15.

From there, you can start collecting resources to upgrade your weapons. Different weapons in Monster Hunter Now will require different resources, so you’ll need to collect monster materials, other materials, and plenty of Zenny if you want to upgrade.

You can also use these materials to forge new weapons or overgrade your existing ones.

Part 4. How to Make Your Monster Hunter Now Gaming Experience Smoother

To make your experience better, it’s not enough for you to just change or unlock new weapons in Monster Hunter Now – though that’s certainly a critical aspect of it. There are a few additional things you’ll want to do. Take a look.

Use a Virtual Location Tool

Monster Hunter Now requires you to be physically on the move. You’ll need to get out of your house, get your steps in, and search for monsters and resource nodes around your actual area. If you don’t want to or can’t do that for one reason or another, you’ll need to use the Wondershare Dr.Fone virtual location changer.

This tool enables you to spoof your location and fool the game into thinking that you’re out and about when you’re actually just sitting at home and trying to enjoy Monster Hunter Now. You can use it to set your location to anywhere in the world, create customizable routes, add stops along your route, jump teleport to other locations, etc.

With its virtual joystick, you can use Wondershare Dr.Fone to “walk around” any area of your choosing and uncover new resource nodes and monsters without ever leaving the comfort of your home.

Clear App Cache and Data Regularly

All apps on your phone will store cache and additional data for a better experience. Stored cache helps the game load faster and smoother. However, it can also cause issues occasionally, especially if the cached version of the app and the updated version don’t match up.

Also, to remove minor bugs or glitches, you must clear your app cache and data regularly. You can easily do so by going to your phone’s settings, locating Monster Hunter Now under Storage > Games, and tapping on Clear Cache.

Use Automatic Date & Time

Without automatic date and time enabled, the differences between the date and time on your phone and those in the game could cause unnecessary problems and glitches. They could even impact your phone performance and cause the game to crash.

You’ll want to ensure you’re using automatic date and time. Go to your phone’s settings, find Date & Time, and enable Automatic date & time and Automatic time zone.

Update the App Regularly

The number one reason for game crashes, lags, bugs, and glitches is the outdated app. Outdated apps can cause various issues, even exposing you to increased cybersecurity risks.

In most instances, app updates come with vulnerability patches, performance improvements, and new features, so it’s always in your best interest to keep all apps, including Monster Hunter Now, updated at all times.

You can update Monster Hunter Now by visiting the Google Play Store and My Apps & Games from the menu. Find Monster Hunter Now and select Update.

Conclusion

Monster Hunter Now offers a wide variety of weapons you could use, with new additions being expected with seasonal updates. To ensure an incredible gaming experience, you’ll want to select weapons that suit your play style and hunting preferences.

In addition, to keep the app performing smoothly, you’ll also want to use automatic date and time, clear your app cache regularly, use only the latest version available, and rely on Wondershare Dr.Fone virtual location changer.
