All you need to know about the QR codes in Monster Hunter Now

Whenever you target a large monster that is just wandering around, you can create a party and join up with other nearby Hunters on the fly. You can also create a static party by using the manual party function.

You can also hunt painted monsters that you or your Palico tagged with Paintballs, but because they naturally won’t show up for other Hunters, they have to join through a different method. That’s where QR codes come in!

To get started, open your Paintball menu and then select the monster you want to hunt. At the hunt prep screen, there’s a button that lets you generate a QR code. Any Hunter that wants to join you can also open the Paintball menu, then tap the Scan QR to join button at the top right.

Now, we know what you’re thinking—you can share QR codes online to game the system and technically play with your friends online, no matter how far apart you are. Unfortunately, the game fails to mention that joining through QR codes is limited to an approximate range of 200 feet, so you still need to be somewhat close to each other.

There’s one more other use for QR codes, and that’s adding people to your friends list. If you want a more convenient way of adding people to your friends list without having to type out the 12-digit friend code, you can give them your friend QR code. The game even has a handy built-in sharing feature for it, which you can access by opening the Hunter menu and tapping the QR view button.

Since QR codes require players to be in each others’ vicinity, you can opt for the alternative: adding friends. To find your friend code, simply type in the 12-digit code which appears underneath the QR code.
