MONSTER HUNTER: WORLD – Capturing Monsters

13 August 2018, Monday, 9:17:09

Capturing Monsters

Capturing a monster has three requirements:

 

1. Monster is at low health.

Easy enough. Beat down the monster, but not enough until it’s dead. If the monster starts limping, it’s likely capturable. If you have level 3 scoutfly tracking, the monster will start to show skulls flying out of its icon in the map and minimap. This confirms that the monster is capturable.

 

 

2. Monster is in a shock trap or pitfall trap.

If you’re feeling confident, you can place the trap mid-combat and hope the monster gets caught in it. You can otherwise wait for the monster to reach its nest and capture it there. It doesn’t make a difference whether its in a shock trap or pitfall trap, but shock traps are more common since they’re easier to make.

 

 

3. Monster is afflicted with tranq status (using tranq bomb/tranq ammo).

Your hunter throws tranq bombs straight at the ground, so get right next to the monster and start throwing. Two bombs is enough to capture a monster. If you’re using a bowgun, you can also use tranq ammo.

 

If all three of these conditions are met at the same time, the monster will be captured. Take note, though, that the three conditions don’t necessarily have to happen in that order. You can pre-tranq the monster before setting the trap, and it will still capture. If you’ve tranquilized the monster twice and they’re in a trap, their health may not be low enough. Smack them with your weapon quickly and you may have a chance to lower their health enough to capture them before the trap runs out.

 

 

 

Additional notes about capturing:

 

  • -If the quest provided EZ traps or EZ tranqs in the blue box at camp, use those instead to preserve your own supply. If you mess up, you can still use your own.

 

  • -The in-game capture tutorial mentions that tranq bombs should be thrown at the monster’s face. That is not explicitly necessary. As long as the tranq hits some part of the monster’s body, it’s fine.

 

  • -Elder dragons are immune to traps and cannot be captured.
