Monster Hunter Now multiplayer enables you to team up with up to four players.

The only way to play Monster Hunter Now multiplayer is by teaming up with other players who are within 200m of your general location. Obviously, the only catch here is you need to be physically near one another, which can be tricky in more rural areas. 

If you do happen to be near other players, then simply invite them to join your hunt or create a Party and have them scan your QR code. It’s important to note, that you can not hunt with other players who are not near you.
