You’ll probably spend a lot of time customizing your character in Monster Hunter World. After painstakingly tweaking the facial features, hairstyle and other parameters, it’s a shame to let your creation be hidden behind a helmet the entire time. The armor in MHW is cool and all, but some people just prefer having their face on display. Thankfully, there’s an option that lets you hide your headgear without losing the stat bonuses and other benefits it provides.
