The training area present within Kamura Village also helps you get familiarized with each weapon, so you won’t struggle with it as much in the opening stages. It’s worth noting though, that some weapons are more difficult to master than others, which means you’ll have to use them extensively before you can proficiently use them.


The controls are also relatively easy to learn since you’ll be shown how to use it throughout the start of the game. Additionally, you can always make use of the in-game control guides at any point if you had trouble understanding it the first time.

One of the most important things to remember, however, is that each monster you encounter will have patterns. Although button mashing may work during some of the earlier portions in the game, the latter stages will require you to study the movement of the beast you’re hunting.
