Are you struggling with connection issues in Monster Hunter Now and want to know if the servers are currently down or operational? Then we've got you covered, brave hunters!
In this guide, we explain how you can check the server status for Monster Hunter Now, Capcom, and Niantic's augmented-reality action RPG, akin to Pokemon GO, but with unique, powerful weapons and deadly monsters! Let's get started!
Update on 23 November 2023: We've checked the latest details on Monster Hunter Now servers, as the game has stabilized a lot since release.
Are Monster Hunter Now Servers Down?
At the time of writing, all the Monster Hunter Now servers are operational. They could, however, go down at a moment's notice for some or all regions. This could happen due to planned maintenance, an update, or a large influx of players during a Monster Hunter Now event.
After three weeks of playing, we've only seen the servers go down twice, as we struggled to log in and saw some connection issues in-game. Keep in mind that connection issues might occur if the game suffers a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack.
If you experience connection issues, we recommend first checking your mobile phone's connection and data availability or resetting your router providing WiFi.
How To Check Monster Hunter Now Server Status
If you think the Monster Hunter Now servers are down but want to be sure, you can check both the Niantic Support and official Monster Hunter Now Twitter (X) accounts. You can also check the third-party DownDetector Monster Hunter page for user reports on connection issues for all games in the franchise.
If all else fails, you can contact Niantic Customer Support to find out what the server status is and get help if it is a user-side issue causing the connection problems.
