Monster Hunter Generations Guide: How to Raise Hunter Rank

Check this guide for all the required quests to raise Hunter Rank in Monster Hunter Generations!

Monster Hunter Generations does not have levels, but they do have ranks. These determine with quests you can take, which also determines which monsters you can hunt for gear. If you want the best gear, you have to keep raising your HR (Hunter Rank) and take on the strongest monsters.

The the good news is you only need to do certain Required Quests to unlock the next rank. The bad news is the game does not tell you which ones you need. The great news is I will let you know everything in this guide!

If you would like general help, or just getting started, please visit my Monster Hunter Generations Beginner Tips and Tricks.

This guide will go over the Hunter Rank requirements in Monster Hunter Generations including:

  • How to Raise Hunter Rank - What you need to increase it.
  • Required Quests - These are the quests required to unlock the urgent quest for the next rank.
  • Urgent Quests - The quests needed to move up to the next rank.
  • Low-Rank Quests - These are from HR 1-3.
  • High-Rank Quests - These are from HR 4-7.

How to Raise Hunter Rank

  • You must complete specific HR quests at the Hunters Hub to unlock an Urgent Quest.
  • When you complete the Urgent Quest, you move up to the rank I have listed next to it.

The game doesn't tell you which quests are needed and there are several extra quests you don't need to do. I'll list only the required and urgent quests for each rank.

Required Quests

The below info is listed by what rank you need to be to do each mission, Completing the Urgent Quest puts you up one rank.
