Monster Hunter Rise has been out a little while, and lots of people are playing it. While there are some solo hunters quietly playing through the 'story' and having a jolly time, for many it's all about the online hub and hunting in groups of four. Of course you can't always play with friends, so when teaming up with random players you rely on good ol' fashioned etiquette. That always ends well...

Apparently a common occurrence in online play is that the moment a monster is weakened someone whips out a trap and captures the beast. It seems logical as it's quick and easy, but technically it should be the host's decision.

Well, online gaming being what it is, especially on Nintendo hardware with non-existent voice chat, communication breaks down. Yet it's worth checking out this PSA from MH wizard Gaijin Hunter; this writer, for one, didn't realise some parts are kill-only.

So, basically, stop being so good-spirited and start slaying more. That special armour hat won't craft itself otherwise.
