Once every decade, elder dragons trek across the sea to travel to the land known as the New World in a migration referred to as the Elder Crossing. To get to the bottom of this mysterious phenomenon, the Guild has formed the Research Commission, dispatching them in large fleets to the New World. As the Commission sends its Fifth Fleet in pursuit of the colossal elder dragon known as Zorah Magdaros, one hunter is about to embark on a journey grander than anything they could have ever imagined.
Your equipment will give you the power to need to carve out a place for yourself in the New World including Scoutflies that assist with tracking, the Slinger that can create diverse tactics and shortcuts, specialized tools and of course Palicoes! There are fourteen different weapons at the hunter's disposal, each with its own unique characteristics and attacks.
