Monster Hunter Tri: Complete monster and item drop guide [UPDATE]

It's hard being a Monster Hunter. Lugging your enormous greatsword around, long days out in the field whacking stuff with your enormous greatsword. Hunting monsters is dangerous business, big or small you're eventually going to come across something that's too hard to handle, and when that happens who are going to turn to for help? Well, you could always call on a friend in co-op mode, but should friend codes fail you, CheatPlanet will be here. We're fighting alongside you, working to build a database designed to help you through every encounter.

Note: This guide is a work in progress and will be continuously updated as we figure out the best ways to beat down all the critters. Make sure to check back!

    Just got it today. This should help! I'd prefer advice on weapon choices, though.

    We're planning on having some more guides for Tri go up in the next few weeks, so keep an eye out. We're writing as fast as we can!!

    sorry, but I was really looking forward to seeing stuff about the bigger monsters but I guess that will be coming soon...

    This is a good basic, beginner's guide to early monsters. But i'm not sure if you didn't use them because they weren't necessary, but you can use rations, rare steaks, well done steaks, power juices, mega juices, and energy drink to restore your stamina. Passed what it initially starts at. And with the Juices you will temporarily have unlimited stamina.

    I would appreciate if you added what you can loot from them, because I'm having a pain in the butt trying to find monster slime for a villigar request.

    The big monster guides are already up by the hardcore monster hunter cults, but I'd rather read a gamesradar article on it and give you guys the pageviews. Big monsters soon please :)

    Not even up to Great Jaggie or luminoth huh? Those guys are best dealt with by ong range weapondry... specifically crag shots and and level 2 pellets. Never mind the abject frustration of catching a great jaggie.

    Anyone able to kill goldenfish for the quest ? The game won't let me use the goldenfish bait ? They're too elusive to harpoon. HELP !

    Guide updated today with Qurupeco and Royal Ludroth, more to come!
  • hjlewis91 - May 9, 2010 2:45 p.m.

    Some of the weak points are wrong.The weakest point on the Great Jaggi is the head, and the weakest point on the Royal Ludroth is the mane.

    hey I would recommend using the switch axe, or bow gun, because the switch axe packs a wicked punch, and the gun can help you by not letting you get hit, for example, the heavy bow gun can be used as a shield and deals out the damage from long range, but if you get up close it can also be used as a mele weapon.
  • badwitz904 - May 9, 2010 11:38 p.m.

    the switch axe is helpful because of its versatility, it has the power, and extra element, of a great sword, but is quicker than it, while in sword mode it releases an element such as fire or thunder or poison, etc., and moves quickly. while in axe mode it moves a little slower but has devastating combos, one of which depletes your stamina sadly :( Overall the switch axe is awesome!

    MONSTER HUNTER RULES!

    by the way u dont "kill" golden fish you fish for them. when u walk into area 10 go to your right all the way untill you cant go any more, then walk to the water and you will see a bait symbol above ur head, then you can fish by pressing "a". hope i helped
  • GamesRadarMichaelGrimm - May 12, 2010 4:24 p.m.

    Thanks for the tips guys, I'll make the changes.

    The lagicrus is not as badass as the cover makes him look
  • bethybo26 - June 4, 2010 8:38 p.m.

    where do you get supersized poo?
  • badwitz904 - June 9, 2010 3:01 a.m.

    from killing the weak dionasaur-like things over and over and over and over...
  • Gavman4rlife - July 4, 2010 2:07 a.m.

    I think you should also add where you can find items. I always forget where items are when I need to find them for upgrades for my weapon or etc..
