Get familiar with Monster Hunter Tri's beasts, item drops and strategies with GamesRadar's handy guide/walkthrough.

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!
