Adopt-A-Hunter is an initiative from the Monster Hunter World community. Their goal is to pair up veterans and novices, to provide guidance and help for new players. Monster Hunter World, like other Monster Hunter games, will likely be pretty difficult, with a lot to master very quickly. With the Adopt-A-Hunter initiative, new players can get a mentor to show them the ropes and help them become the Hunter they’re destined to be.
Monster Hunter World is a little over two weeks away, at least, on consoles. This is the first major console release since Monster Hunter 3, which came out on the Wii and Wii U in 2009/2010. Since then, there have been two more games on the 3DS. So, Monster Hunter World will definitely gather a lot of attention, with many fresh players looking to use the new game as a jumping-on point. That being said, a lot of them might look at Monster Hunter and feel a bit intimidated. Luckily for all of them, the Adopt-a-Hunter Initiative is there to help them out.
The core concept of Adopt-A-Hunter is veteran players providing guidance and assistance to new players. The grizzled, old-school players more or less hold the hand of the newbies through the steep learning curve of Monster Hunter World. The benefit of Adopt-A-Hunter is two-fold, at the very least. It’ll keep the newcomers from quitting from frustration, and also help build a very tightly-woven community. Whether you’re a veteran or a rookie, you can sign up on the website. After that, the staff of Adopt-A-Hunter will pair you up. That way, you have your first squad member and someone to coach/be coached by. During matchmaking, the staff will pay attention to your location and language, so that you get the best possible partner. On the website, you can also find the community’s Discord and other information.
