Palicoes are a cat-like combat companion in Monster Hunter World. As hunters' reliable comrades out in the field, they specialize in a variety of offensive, defensive, and restorative support abilities. The hunter's Palico joins the Fifth Fleet with pride, as much a bona fide member of the Commission as any other hunter.

You only get one Palicoe. The one you customize during character creation will be the only companion Palicoe. Others will be in the Town or Players Housing but do not accompany the Hunter.

Palicoes are reliable comrades while out on the hunt. They'll support you in numerous ways during quests, from attacking monsters to utilizing useful gadgets.

Palicoes in MHW

  • Palicoes can be outfitted with Weapons and Armor that you make for them in Crafting
  • They can be leveled up according to traits and roles you wish for them to serve
  • In combat, they can support you with offensive and defensive maneuvers
  • They can serve as harvesting helpers for gathering Items in the wild
  • They can communicate with local wild cats and convince them to help hunters by setting traps
  • Only one Palico can be brought on a quest, but the Palico can temporarily recruit wild cats and small monsters to help
  • Palicoes can be equiped with gadgets that give powerful bonuses on command

Palico Gadgets

  • Vigorwasp Spray: The Palico pulls out a vigorwasp and rides it towards the hunter. It then explodes, healing the hunter.
  • Flashfly Cage: The Palico pulls out a cage with a flashfly in it. The hunter can then hit the cage to create a large flash.
  • Shieldspire: The Palico pulls out a shield with a face on it. The Palico then taunts the monster into attacking it while using the shield to stay alive.
