Monster Hunter Now is the latest location-based game by Niantic, the makers of Pokémon GO. It takes that formula and applies it to the Monster Hunter series, seeing you wander around your actual neighbourhood, battling monsters. You then loot them for parts, which you turn into gear. This helps you take on even more powerful monsters, alone or with friends.
Monster Hunter Now Palico Paintball
Now, let’s take a look at everything you need to know about the Monster Hunter Now Palico Paintball.
What’s a Palico Paintball?
Monster Hunter Now features two different types of paintball: Palico and regular. Both items allow you to ‘mark’ monsters you encounter in the wild, allowing you to fight them at a later time. This is great when you’re on the move, spot a monster you want to fight, but don’t have time.
The regular paintball requires a manual use, while the Palico paintball is automatic. As long as you have at least one in your inventory, you will automatically mark any monster you pass on your travels.
How do I Get Palico Paintballs?
You get Palico paintballs for free every single day. Each day you log in, you get three Palico paintballs.
Sadly, that’s currently the only method of getting a Palico paintball. They aren’t available in the shop for purchase, either with real money or Zenny. I’ll update this guide should that change.
How do I Use Paintballs?
That depends on the type of paintball. The Palico paintball is automatic, and, as long as you have one in your inventory, will automatically mark any monsters you encounter until they run out.
To use the regular paintball, simply tap on a nearby monster that you wish to mark. Then, instead of fighting them, tap the paintball button to save them for later.
