Prowler Mode (ニャンタ Nyanta) is an alternate mode of play that allows players to play as a Felyne, which changes up some of the usual mechanics of the game. It was introduced in Monster Hunter Generations.

Playing a Felyne has its advantages and disadvantages. As a Felyne, players aren't limited by stamina, are faster gatherers, and are allowed 2 faints before actually counting for a cart. To compensate, the Felynes aren't as strong as Hunters and cannot utilize the same items a Hunter can. They can still carry said items, however, so they still benefit from carrying Power/Armor Charms and Talons.

Those who are using Prowler Mode may choose to support hunters from the sidelines, or independently deal their own damage. Prowler Mode allows for flexible play-styles, so any Hunters can enjoy it.

Traits and Strategy

  • Powerful, versatile mode.
  • Can be considered Monster Hunter's mid-ranged weapon.
  • Boomerangs can potentially deal equal or more damage than a hunter.

Boomerang skills greatly aid in the damage you can do. Combinining Pierce Boomerang and Large Boomerang will greatly add to your DPS, and shave a lot of time off of your hunts. Last Stand is also helpful, as it basically makes you a hunter that looks like a Felyne. You have 3 lives rather then 9, like a hunter, but you get a large attack and defense boost for doing so. Earplugs allows you to get in many boomerang hits while the monster is roaring. Especially helpful for a monster with a long roar. Boomerang Boost allows you faster charging times, and your boomerangs fly faster, allowing for more boomerang hits during a monster's roar, and just in general.

Those in Prowler Mode have an enraged state. Whilst you are a Prowler, there is a hidden gauge that builds up over time and with damage. When you are enraged, you gain: 30% Affinity, Earplugs, Quicker meter gain, faster dodging, and the unlocking of the X + A attack.


- Melee attack. Can be continued into a combo.

- Throw boomerang.

A (hold) - Charge boomerang. Follow up with A to throw another boomerang.

X + A - Can only be done when enraged. Will make you swing left and right. Pressing X continues the combo.  Press X + A to end with an Aerial Finisher.
