When your Hunter Rank reaches 6 or higher, you can invite other users to Monster Hunter Now using your exclusive referral code. When users who have used your referral code reach Hunter Rank 20, both you and the invited user will receive gifts.


  • Only users who play Monster Hunter Now for the first time can enter a referral code. Users who have played in the past cannot use this feature.

  • The person who sends the referral code and the person who receives it will automatically become friends.

Sharing your referral code:

  1. Tap the [Hunter Icon] on the Main screen.

  2. Tap [Friends].

  3. Tap [Add Friends].

  4. Scroll down to find your referral code. Copy the code and share it using your preferred method.


  • If you want to copy just the referral code, tap the icon in the middle. If you want to send a message along with the referral code through a registered social media account, tap the icon at the right. 

  • If you wish to change your referral code, tap "Refresh" (the previous referral code will become invalid). 

  • Users who start playing using your referral code and reach Hunter Rank 20 will be eligible to receive gifts.

Using a referral code:

  1. Download Monster Hunter Now from Google Play or the App Store.

  2. Enter your birthdate.

  3. Tap [New Player] and follow the on-screen instructions to create your account. For iOS devices, you'll need a Google or Apple account, and for Android devices, a Google account is required.

  4. When you reach the referral code input screen, enter the referral code shared with you by another user.

  5. Once you reach Hunter Rank 20, you'll be eligible to receive gifts.

※You can opt to enter the referral code later from the Friend list that is unlocked when your Hunter Rank reaches 6. However, you need to do this within 72 hours of creating your account.

Gifts for the Inviting user 

When the person you've shared the referral code with enters the code, starts playing the app, and reaches Hunter Rank 20, you will receive items in your Item Box.


If more than 20 users enter your referral code, we've prepared gifts for up to the first 20 users in the order of code entry. When those users, up to the 20th, reach Hunter Rank 20, gifts will be granted in your Item Box. 

You will not receive the gifts for the 21st and subsequent users, but they will still be automatically added to your Friend list in the app. 

Gifts for the Invited Users:

  • Paintball x2

  • Potion x3

  • Zenny x1000


To receive the gifts, invited users need to reach Hunter Rank 20 or higher.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can multiple users use the same referral code?

If I change my referral code, will the previous code become invalid?

I invited a user who started the app, but I didn't receive the gifts. Why?

  • The inviter and invitee will not automatically become friends.

  • The inviter will not be able to receive the gifts. The invitee, however, can still receive the gifts.

If I am already friends with someone in other Niantic apps (such as Ingress or Pokémon GO), can I give them my referral code and receive gifts?
