Quests in Monster Hunter World are assignments that players pick up in order to obtain rewards. Quests give simple background detail to Monster Hunts and come with completion and failure specifications, as well as performance objectives that grant special Materials rewards. Using a Lucky Voucher will grant more rewards on quest completion.

Monster Hunter World Quests

Monster Hunter World subdivides quests into the following categories:


Story quests that progress you through the main narrative of Monster Hunter: World.

These are all one-time completion quests and once done are grayed out and can not be revisited.

A full list can be found on this page.


Non-essential quests that assist NPCs around Astera.

Optional Quests can be repeated indefinitely once unlocked and available. There are rare encounters and special arena quests within this category that will rotate in and out of availability randomly once unlocked.

A full list can be found on this page.


Special quests that can be completed only a limited number of times.

The investigations are acquired by either killing or capturing a monster, breaking monster parts, or investigating monster traces. These activities have a chance to grant a random investigation that will then have to be identified at the Resource Center. Then the investigation must be added to the available investigations at the Resource Center to be able to start the quest at the quest board.

A full list can be found on this page.



Event quests are repeatable but can only be participated in during the time which they are live.

The quests rotate on a weekly basis and change on Thursday/Friday at midnight UTC (Thurs 6pm CDT).

Generally, most all Event Quests seem to return together during the quarterly seasonal festival, i.e. Spring Blossom Fest. 

A full list can be found on this page.

Special Assignments

Special Assignments are unique quests that unlock special DLC, and were introduced in March 2018 with the launch of the Deviljho monster.

These quests are basically just like Assigned, in that they are unavailable once completed and will progress the game, just in their case it is new DLC features that have been released after the main story-line.

Completing most of these new Special Assignments unlocks an equivalent Optional Quest to allow players unlimited access to the content found in the original quest.

      Is there any difference if I put the shock trap first and then I throw the tranq bombs or I should do it the other way around like tranq bombs and then shock traps?
