Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin has finally launched, and three new amiibo have arrived with it! This guide will take you through how to use these and other amiibo in Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin and show you exactly what they do!

 

How do I use amiibo in Monster Hunter Stories 2?

 

 

It’s especially easy to use your amiibo in Monster Hunter Stories 2, all you need to do is head to the Prayer Pot in any of the game’s hubs and select the third option, “Use an amiibo.” You’ll get access to the Prayer Pot and its amiibo support early on in the game, right after you return from your first outing with Kayna.

Tapping any amiibo at the Prayer Pot will have Tsukino read your fortune, granting you items based on the type of fortune read – Crescent Moon, Half Moon, or Full Moon. These fortune types are seemingly chosen at random, and the closer the moon is to full, the more items you will receive. Any amiibo figures or cards should work just fine and grant you a fortune, though you can only scan up to ten amiibo per day, and you can only scan each amiibo once. I did discover that if you have duplicate amiibo cards, you can scan the same character more than once per day as long as it is a separate amiibo.

Scanning any Monster Hunter series amiibo also nets you additional rewards alongside Tsukino’s fortune reading, which are unblocked the first time you scan them.

Scanning any of the three Monster Hunter Rise amiibo — Magnamalo, Palico, or Palamute — released earlier this year will reward the player with the Hunter Sticker set, to be used when communicating with other players when playing online multiplayer. The Hunter Sticker Set features twenty stickers in the style of Monster Hunter Rise.
