In Niantic and Capcom's augmented-reality monster-slaying mobile title, Monster Hunter Now, you will always want to restore your Hunter's health as quickly as possible. Don't worry, hunters; we've got you covered so you can slay monsters to your heart's content.

In this guide, we explain how healing works in Monster Hunter Now, how to restore your health, and which items you can use to speed up the process.

How To Restore Health in Monster Hunter Now

First and foremost, you can check your current Health status by looking at the Health Bar (above your Hunter's head on the map view) as well as at the centre-bottom of the Hunting Screen. One important thing to remember is that the health bar does not display if your health is full!

After you take damage (and trust us, you will!), your hunter's health will start recovering automatically, but very slowly, about one point of health per three (3) minutes in our estimations. You will definitely want to speed up the healing process for your character in Monster Hunter Now since if your health is below 30%, you cannot participate in hunting Large Monsters.

There are two types of items that can restore your health in Monster Hunter Now, namely the First-Aid Med and the Potion. Luckily, for those below Hunter Rank 11, First-Aid Meds replenish automatically and quickly. For those above Hunter Rank 11, you will get five (5) First-Aid Meds per day after 00:01 local time.

Then, there are potions, which players get for completing several chapters of the Prologue and Main Story Quests. From here, you will need to purchase more using Gems, the premium currency in Monster Hunter Now that costs real money to purchase.
