Preface

Welcome to my fourth guide in this site. (The previous other guides is in the other games though).

Monster Hunter Freedom Unite is the second game I played on PSP, and I never played any of the predecessor Monster Hunter games before. When I played this game without using guide, I find that this game is hard enough. I always believe that at the start of every game, you can attack everything and still wins the game. But not for this one. This require a specific strategy even for some of the first battle, and you can die even after the first few quest. I died the first time while doing the last Village Chief *1 Quests, which is the first and the lowest quest. That's not funny.

Since this game is consist of very complex system, I don't find any single guide that can help me from the start to the end. I must collect many informations from many websites especially Gamefaqs boards to find some necessary informations. This guide is the result of many informations I have collected from the websites, and I hope this guide will help you, so you don't have to go through like me.

Anyway, I played the US version of the game using an emulator. I read that there are some different names for the Europe version, so forgive me for that. I never own a PSP, but I hope that it's not different than playing with the real PSP.

Oh yeah, this is my second guide in this game. Previously I have made another guide that you can read it at http://www.gamefaqs.com/psp/943356-monster-hunter-freedom-unite/faqs/73682

Let's cut the chit chat and start the game.

What You Should Know Before

There are some notes before I start the guide

  • This guide is for anyone who want to do a speedrun for the first time. I believe many of you won't have time to do a second run. I myself have to do a second run to test this guide, to make sure that everything is correct for the first time player.
  • Speedrun means that you will go straight to beat the "last boss" as fast as possible. You will skip many quests whenever possible, so this is not for someone who want to complete everything at the start. While most of the RPG games will have something missable when you advance through storyline, this game doesn't have that, so you can come back later to complete everything after you have better weapons and armors. This terms also means that you only needs to upgrade weapons and armor when necessary, and I'll tell you when the time comes.
  • Monster Hunter Freedom Unite offers many different kinds of weapons you can choose, and for this guide I purposely choose Greatsword as a main weapon. Greatsword is not recommended for the beginner though, because you will have limited mobility. Longsword is populer among beginner, but I already made a guide for that, so I must choose another weapon. This path also requires me to make specific armor set with specific skill and this also will be explained later.
  • I complete all of this alone. Gathering Hall Quests is a group quest, so it's intended if you do it with friends. Obviously having some friends will help you to do the Gathering Hall Quest. Without friends this is still manageable, but you will have to play without too much mistake to clear it. I have gone through it, just in case if you don't have any nearby friends to play like me.
  • This game doesn't have any lock on system. If you play mostly RPG games like Final Fantasy, you only need to select your target and your character will hit the target. At this game, you have to move your camera manually before you attack your targets. So yes, you have to move your character using Analog button and move your camera using D-pad button, but you only have one left thumb. That's one of the difficulties of this game, or you can use the tricks below. See The Tricks for details.

The Tricks

There are some exploits or tricks you can do in this game.

  • To move your camera while moving your character, there are 2 ways.
    • If you play this game on emulator like me, and you use a standard PS/2 Joystick, you can map the L2 and R2 button as D-pad left and right, respectively. You will rarely use up and down button, so you don't need to map it. With this you will have full control of the movement and camera, so this will really help you.
    • If you play this game on PS Vita, you can map the entire Right Analog as D-pad buttons, especially left and right. Your reflexes won't be as good as the previous tips, but that's the option you can have.
  • MOI / Moment of Invincibility is the terms used when you won't take damage when it's supposed to do. It's usually happen when you take damage from any attacks that make you falls, and you won't take any damage until you recover from the ground. This prevents you to take any additional damage when you recover, because if this system is not exist, you will die from your opponent's chain attacks, the easiest example is Bulldrome's Multiple Tackle. Fortunately this terms also applies to any movement that make you moves midair until you touches the ground or recover from the ground. The famous movement is Dive, and some weapon movement like Longswords' Backsweep, Lance's Sidestep, or Bow's Backstep will also have MOI. Exploit this to escape the unblockable attacks. The basic roll also has very short MOI, and when used at the right timing, you can escape the opponent's Roar, or Gypceros' Flash.

The Preparations

Start a new game, name your own character, and then choose your gender, clothing, face, hairstyle, hair color, voice. I don't bother with it and choose everything at random. Confirm it, save in the new slots, and watch the cutscene. You will get attacked by T***** and fall from the cliff.

After a short talk, you will see a Pokke Village, and this will be your main base until the end. Then you will wake up from the bed. This is your home.

You can save your game by resting at bed.

Beside your bed, there is a bookshelf. You can read about this game's information by choosing Info Magazine, and you will unlock more as you progress through games. You can also change your hairstyle and clothes by choosing Hair and Clothes. Later you can also change your face and voice. I really don't bother with it.

At the left you will see an Item box. Every items and equipments will be stored here. This game is different from many RPG games where you will bring all of your items everywhere. In this game you can only bring a limited amount of items as you take the quest, and for me this is somewhat like the real hunting system. You will also find a smaller Item box in other areas in the village. They have the same effect as the Item box, but you can't change weapon and armor there. So the only place to change your weapon and armor is the Item box in the Home.

Head outside the home. You will see many people with yellow dots above their head. When you see yellow dots, it means that they have new informations to you. Talks to the nearest person. He explains that he is your livesaver and a former hunter. He has retired because of injury and he wants to train you to follow his steps. Also, he gives you the basic weapons and armors you can equip in the Item box.

Go to your right and you will see a Felyne Equipment Shop.

He sells a basic Weapons and Armors. You nearly don't have business with him (except for the first armor set), so you can completely ignore his existence.

Anyway this is what he sells at this moment

At his right is the Crafting Shop.

  • He can create weapon or improve your current weapon based on the required material. Usually create weapon require harder material than improve it, so you may want to improve your weapon as quick as possible. Don't worry I will tell you about it when the time comes.
  • He can also create or improve your armor. Armor is divided into 5 pieces: Helmet, Plate, Gauntlets, Waist, and Leggings. Improve Armor will give you permanent defense. For maximum defense you need to upgrade each piece of the armor.
  • He also can create decorations. Decorations is the jewel you can make by the required material. This jewel will give you some different skill points when attached. To attach jewel, you must have some open slots in the weapon or armor. At the first, your weapon and armor doesn't have / have very limited open slots, so you don't need to worry about jewels, but later in the game, your weapon and armor will have many open slots, and you will need jewels to activate some of the skills. This is the only place you can attach and remove decorations.

The list of weapon, armor, and decoration will be upgraded as you have new material. So this will differs from your playthrough and mine, because your acquired material won't be the same as mine. But don't worry about this.

Same as weapons, if you see any Mafumofu or Leather parts, You can make it with only half the cost than if you buy it at Felyne Equipment Shop, but it needs some materials to make it. You also see that every armor set comes in two types, the Blademaster Armor and the Gunner Armor. If you use melee weapon, you can only equip Blademaster parts, and if you use ranged weapon, you can only equip Gunner parts. This is why I choose melee weapon as my main weapon because I don't have to invest in 2 types of armor set. Later in the game, when I give up with melee path, I use ranged weapon and must make specific gunner armor set for it.

Decorations No Decorations can be crafted right now.

Go to the northeast and you will meet Village Chief. She will provides you with the easy Quests, which also called Low Rank Quests, but first you need to go to the Training Schools in your west. Don't go there now, instead go to the northwest to meet the Traveling Peddler, which I call Old Lady from now.

Old Lady sells items cheaper than the Item Shop. Since she is a traveller, her items list will also change after every quest you take. I noticed that her items list has a specific set that will be chosen randomly. This means that item A will only come in list A, item B will only come in list B, etc. Also, since this list is chosen randomly, I can only give you the specific set of items she will have.

This is the first items set in my playthrough, remember that this can be different from your playthrough

Basic Training - Hunting
AreaSnwyMntains(Day)
GoalHunt the Giadrome

When you start the quest, you will read an info. Before you go to the Supply Box, you will see a blue dot on the map. This is a Detect skill, and the blue dot is your target position, it's in the Area 8. Now open the blue box and take everything you can. You will see many items you can take. When you have done, read another info. Then open the menu and select Advice to find informations on every items you have taken before. Go into Area 1 then Area 4, and use Hot Drink as temporary cold resistance. Go into Area 6 and look for Giadrome, if he isn't there, then go to Area 7, and Area 8 at last.

Giadrome is a mini Boss. I said that because he has higher health and he has the same attacks as the regular Giaprey, which you have encountered from the previous training quest. This is your time to learn anything about combat. Your weapon types for this quest is Sword and Shield. You can do basic combos with combinations of Triangle and Circle button. You can block by R button. You can roll by X button. You can try to use any items you have, except for Prtbl Shock Trap and 2 Tranq Bombs, which is needed to capture him. As you have noticed it until now, your problem for the rest of this game is the camera. Just familiar yourself with this basic combat, and weaken him. When he is ready to be captured, he will flees to Area 7. Go there and use your Shock Trap in the open place. Lure him into trap, then use 2 Tranq Bomb to capture it. That's for Hunting. Remember this technique because you will capture every target you've encountered to get better reward.

If you killed it (probably accidentally like me), you can carve any material from him, but you don't get any Bonus Rewards. I suggest that you repeat this quest to get the feeling of capturing your target.

Learn anything? This is some useful tips when doing the basic hunting quest.

  • At the start of the quest, always check your Supply Box and take everything you can get. Later, when you don't have any open slots in your inventory, always prioritize the most useful items until the least.
  • After you take some Rations, always use 2 of them at the start of the quest to maximize your Stamina. Having more stamina is really useful. Later, when you don't get Rations, you will depend on Energy Drink to maximize your Stamina.
  • When you do a Hunting Quest, and you have unlocked Psychoserum, immediately use it to track your target's position. Rush to the area and hopefully you will find him. After you find him, throw paintball to mark him in the map. When the mark has vanished from the map, immediately use it again before your target change area. This is important so you don't waste your time to search him, and finish your battle quicker.
  • When you do a Hunting Quest, and you have find your target, don't immediately strike him, and instead clear the area from any regular monsters there. Believe me, these monster can give you real problem when facing your main target, and sometimes can cost your life. Absolutely you don't want that to happen. After you clear those regular monsters, you may retreat to another area and use the following tips.
  • After your main target flees to another area, prepare yourself for the next battle. Heal when necessary, maxed out your stamina, resharp your weapon, and chase him. At the last area before you face him again, use any buffs (usually Power Seeds), and go to the next battle.
  • After your weapon has bounced when attacking your target, this means you need to resharp. Retreat to another area to resharp your weapon, and probably heal and buff, and reenter to face your target.
  • When you are in danger, and in the position you can't run away, and you have Farcaster, use it to transport you back to the base camp. As you may notice in the first Basic Practice, you can sleep in the camp to fully heal yourself. And of course if you chase your opponent while near the base camp, you can do the same to heal yourself.
  • After your target has been weakened, he will show a sign of capture and flees to the designated area to sleep. This sign is different for every species, and the usual sign is limps. Don't worry I will list the capture sign so you know when is the time to capture them. When this happens, stop your attacks and chase him to the rest area. Clear it from any regular monster without waking him up. Place a trap (usually Shock Trap), wake him up, lure into trap, and throw 2 Tranq Bombs to capture it. Mini boss (like Giadrome above) doesn't have any sign, and just quickly flees to another area. Chase him and do the same.

Move into the next training, which is the Weapon Usage.

Weapon usage have 11 quests you can take, but every quest has the same objective.

[any weapon] Mastery
AreaSnwyMntains(Day)
GoalSlay 5 Giaprey

When you start the quest, you will read an info about the basic control of the weapon you choose. Open your menu and select Advice for more info. Open the blue box and take everything you can. Go to Area 1 and kill 2 Giapreys, Go to the base of Area 3 and kill 2 Giapreys, then go to area 5 to kill the last Giaprey.

Your objective here is to get used with the basic controls with each weapons. When I try all of the weapons for the first time, I feel somewhat comfortable with Longsword, but no, in this guide I have to use Greatsword, so I have to learn it's moves.

After you have finished everything, exit from Training School. Speak with the Village Chief to get 1500z. She also tells you that you can go to the Gathering Hall Building in the west and meet with the Guild Manager. So go to there and speak with the Guild Manager. She tells you that you can take quest with friends here. Of course this will be harder than the Solo Quests. Since I play alone, and I assume you also play this alone, we'll skip any of Gathering Hall Quests and come back later after you finish with Solo Quests.

Go to your northeast and you will find Gathering Hall Item Shop

This will unlock Monster's species name when you beat him in the Monster Log under the Guild Card. Until the end of this guide you don't need any of these items. I only buy it when I show you my Monster Log as a requirement to unlock quest later.

Beside the Gathering Hall Item Shop, you will find a Small Item box. This is the same Item box you've found on the Pokke Farm and has the same functionality.

Go to the southeast and you will find Treshi. Treshi will offers you Treasure Hunting Quests, which your only objective is to collect points based on items you've gathered in the quests. Since this is a speedrun guide, and you don't need to do this to unlock anything, I'll skip all of his quests. You can take his quests when you get bored with the main quests. Refer to Treasure Hunting Guide for more informations.

Exit from the Gathering Hall, go to the south end to find Pokke Farm Shop at the right.

He sells upgrade to your Pokke Farm, which you will be accessed shortly. Every renovation use Pokke Points. Pokke Points can be obtained by completing any quest or deliver any rare items you have found on quest. As you progressed further, you will need those Pokke Points, so you will need a way to farm those Pokke Points. I will explain it later when you need to do it.

This is what you can renovate at this point

Field Row +11000 pts
Fishing Pier +12000 pts
Mushroom Tree1000 pts

He can also exchange your Pokke Points into an item. For the rest of the game, you don't need to do this. You will have an abundance source of items later. Never exchange your Pokke Points.

Anyway, this is the items you can exchange right now

Suiko Jewel500 pts
Gourmet BBQ Spit5000 pts

Now go the Pokke Farm behind him

Beside the nearest felyne there is a small Item Box. You can put your inventory items to the Item Box.

North of this felyne, you will find sleeping Popo. Sometimes you can get Dung from him. Dung will be used to increase your field harvests (below). So after every quest always check below him to acquire those Dung.

Follow the path to the north, and you can speak with the felyne. He explains about mining and you can mine ores in the crack beside him. This doesn't require your Pickaxe items, but you can only mine 3 or 4 times, then you must wait until you take the next quest to be able to mine again. So after every quest always mine ores in this spot. Later when you upgrade the mining point, you can have multiple crack on the cliff, so you can mine for every crack.

Go to your northeast, and you can speak with the felyne. He explains about catching bugs and you can gather bugs in the Insect Thicket beside him. This doesn't require your Bugnet items, but you can only gather 3 or 4 times, then you must wait until you take the next quest to be able to gather again. So after every quest always catch bugs in this spot. Later when you upgrade the Insect Thicket, you can have multiple Insect Thicket, so you can catch bugs for every Insect Thicket.

South of that is the Fields, speak with the nearby felyne, and he will explains about plant fields. You can plant a certain plant there, but you must wait until you take a quest to be able to farm those plants. Before you plant anything, you can also use Worms or Dung to fertilize your soil, and this will increase your harvests. So after every quest always harvest those plants and plant another. Later when you upgrade the Field Row, you can have plant multiple plants for every Field Row you have.

Go to the Bridge in the east and speak with the felyne. He explains about fishing and you can catch fishes in the Fishing Pier beside him. This doesn't require your Bait items, but you can only have 3 tries to catch a fish, then you must wait until you take the next quest to be able to catch fishes again. To catch a fish, you must wait until the fish bite your bait and then press X to catch it. So after every quest always catch fishes in this spot. Later when you upgrade the Fishing Pier, you can go into the deeper lake, and you can catch rarer fishes. Remember that rare fish will have shorter time to catch, so the timing of your X button must be quicker, or you will lose your bait.

Exit from Pokke Farm and speak with the Traveling Felyne Provider at the left, which I called Felyne Provider from now.

You can hire 2 types of Felyne, which is Felyne Chef and Felyne Comrade. She only take a type (Chef / Comrade) and the list will be changed after you take a quest.

Felyne Chefs can give you a nice permanent bonus Health / Stamina / Attack / Defense / Element Resistance as long as you don't die when taking a quest. This bonus may be small at first, but will be great later, and you will absolutely need this permanent bonus when taking those Hard Quests. You can only hire 1 Chef at this moment, but will be increased as you progress further into the game.

When she has Felyne Chef list, always try to find one with 2 main ingredients and the most stars. Replace / Dismiss the old ones if you don't have any open Felyne Chef slots and find better Felyne Chef here. Later, you also required Felyne with specific skill to hire. Don't worry about it now.

Felyne Comrades will accompany you when taking a Solo Quests. They have limited combat skills which you need to learn first to help you take the quest. You can't control what skill will be activated by Felyne Comrades though. That's just a nice bonus. When Felyne Comrade takes enough damage, he will bury himself in the ground to rest. Depend on the personality of the Felyne, he can recover slow or fast. This can be repeated infinitely until the end of the quest, so you can use your comrade as a decoy when you attack your main target. Nice.

When she has Felyne Comrade list, always try to find one with Peace Loving temperament. A Peace Loving felyne won't attack anything, but can still use his skills. Why I choose this? Because felyne can only have a maximum level of 20, and his Attack + Defense can only go up to 500 points. Which means even if you have Felyne Comrade with 500 Attack and 0 Defense points, his attack will still weak compared to your weapon attack points. So, many people only use his Felyne Comrade as a decoy. You can have multiple Felyne Comrades later, but you don't need it since you only can take 1 Felyne Comrade in your quest. When you already have Peace Loving felyne, just ignore her Felyne Comrade list and focus on the Felyne Chef list when she has it.

After you hire a Felyne Chef / Felyne Comrade, go to your Home. You will see that you can enter Felyne Kitchen

At your northwest, you can check Kitchen Board. What you need to do after every quests is to train you Felyne Chef by selecting BBQ Service and choose certain meat of fish you have. Fortunately if you catch fishes in the Pokke Farm Fishing Pier, you can use those fishes to train your Felyne Chefs. You can request up to 10 meats / fishes of the same type. After you place your orders, you must wait until you take a quest to be able to pickup your request by selecting BBQ Pickup. When your chef is still in the low level, he will give you a bad result, but as you train him, he will produce better result. You can then sell any of the items they have cooked for you as an additional income. You don't need those items.

At the table, you can Order Food. You can select 2 items on the list and your Felyne Chef will cook it for you. When you combine the right ingredients you will get a good / decent boost to Health / Stamina / Attack / Defense / Element Resistance. How many items you can choose is based on your Felyne Chef's levels on the first order, this means if you have more than 1 Felyne Chef, the list is based only on your first position Felyne Chef's levels, so the higher his level the more selection you can choose. As you have unlocked more Felyne Chefs, the menus and combination will be different, and I will tell you about that later.

For now you only have 1 Felyne Chef, so focus on this menu

FruitOily Raisins
VegetbleJungle Onion / Pumpkin / Twinshroom
MeatMeat Scraps / Rubbery Jerky / Tough Meat
BranChunky Rice / Furahiya Wheat / Mixed Beans
FishBone Taco / Clamchip / Scalefish

The best combination will be

Fruit + VegetbleHealth +20
Meat + MeatHealth +10
Meat + BranHealth +10
Bran + FishHealth +10

Never combine any other or you risk of having a bad status.

Why I choose this combination? Because Health is really vital. You don't have any items to increase your maximum Health, so you can only resort to Felyne Chefs to give you permanent Health Bonus. Remember that this permanent bonus will take effect as long as you don't die. When you die, you lose this permanent bonus unless you have Felyne Bonus Skills when your Felyne Chef activates it. So never let you die in a quest. You may wonder what is Felyne Bonus Skills? This will be explained below.

If you combine, let's say Fruit and Vegetble, and your Felyne Chef has Fruit or Vegetble as his main ingredients, he can activate one of the 3 Food Speciality Skills he has. This activation is really random, and which skill can be activated is random too. But there is good news, you can save your game before you order your food, and load your game if you don't have the desired skill after you eat. After that you can save your game again, so that if you load the game after you reset your PSP, you still have those skills for the next quest.

I won't list the details here, but you should aim only at this skills

Mega Lucky CatIncreases the potential chance for more Normal Rewards significantly.
Ultra Lucky CatIncreases the potential chance for more Normal Rewards.
Felyne KnockOutKO damage of the weapons increases. Headshot with Crag S can now also stun.
Felyne HeroicsAttack Power increases by x1.5 and Defense by 60; Total Health must be below 10.
Felyne DismantleIncreases the chance to have an extra carve.
Felyne Explorer100% chance spawning in secret area if possible; only works in High or G-Lvl Quests.
Crazy Lucky CatIncreases quests reward money x2.

When you need to farm materials, you will absolutely need Mega Lucky Cat and Ultra Lucky Cat. Felyne KnockOut also a good ones only if you use Hammer. Being KnockOut means free hits. If you really good at dodging you may also want Felyne Heroics. It give you permanent buffs when you have very low health. Other than that you can try another 3 skills. Crazy Lucky Cat if you really desperate about money, but your money will be enough follow this guide. Felyne Dismantle for extra carve. Later at Hard Rank Quests you may also want Felyne Explorer to collect rare material. Just to let you know that I don't use any of this 3 when making this guide.

Just in case you want to know,

Felyne Bonus SkillsFelyne Kitchen food bonuses apply even after falling unconscious.

You don't need this skiil, always prioritize on those skiils I've mentioned above

After you order your Food you can talk with each of your Felyne Chefs, and they will sometimes give you a random items. Sometimes they will trade your items with his. The items they will give will be random. The special items you will receive from them is FlyingMealPassPlus and FlyingMealPassReg, which is only can be gathered here. You don't need this items to upgrade anything though. Also sometimes they will give you junk items, but sometimes they give you a good items, like Energy Drink and Tranq Bombs. Treat it only as a bonus.

East of the table you will see a Small Item Box. This is the same Item box you've found on the Pokke Farm and has the same functionality.

In the south of Small Item Box you can check Felyne Comrade Board. This is where you can set anything about your Felyne Comrades. At the Growth section, you can choose what is the training type you want to do with your Felyne Comrades. Below is the training types and what effect does it have.

Hand To HandExperience +10
DumbellsAttack +2
SitupsDefense +2
FormsAttack +1, Defense +1
MeditationSkill Points +2
RestHeart Points + 5

Since you have Peace Loving felyne, skill is the most important thing since he doesn't do anything without it. So prioritize your training types to Meditation. After you have enough points to learn 3 skills, change your training types to Rest until your Felyne Comrade have 4 Hearts, then change to Situps for the rest of the games. I'll tell you why you should do it below.

At the Comrade Skills section you can choose to learn skills if you have enough points to learn it. By learn it in this moment doesn't mean your Felyne Comrade can use it immediately, you must wait 1 until 3 quests to let your Felyne Comrade learn this skills. You can only learn 1 skill at a time. Also, you can learn only 3 skills, which means to learn any other skills you must forget another skills. So you must choose carefully to not waste those skill points. So what skill should be learned? Below is the complete lists of them

This is the reason why you need to change your training types to Resting until you have 4 Hearts.

With all that said, you are ready to take the first real quest. But wait, upgrading your Pokke Farm is more important. As you can see in the Pokke Farm Shop sections, you need to have 4000 Pokke Points to upgrade your Pokke Farm. Fortunately there is a good way to collect Pokke Points even before you take any quests.
