Ei there, hunters! This guide is all about the hunts in FFXV. Here are the main points: (Work in progress – I’ll update as I go!)

FFXV Hunts List

Some marks won’t show up until you’re a certain rank. Rarely, they require completion of other hunts before appearing. Use the search & filter box!

YOU CAN TURN IN HUNTS AT ANY TIPSTER! You can REPEAT hunts for gil/exp.
*It’s very hard to determine “Rank needed” – since I’m backtracking*
I get a lot of questions for: Hunters of Secullam Pass (Coeurls)

Entries with 2 enemies needed only show the “primary” marks… It doesn’t fit well.
I’ll find the best compromise to have the most info. Screenshots of hunt location
and a map is something I’d like to do in the near future.

Missing 3 stars! Problems Unlocking Hunts

Some hunts don’t show up right off the bat. I’ll discuss all the ways to unlock them.

Ranking up is the most basic one. The more you rank up, the more you’ll see.

Missing 3 stars for rank 10! Aye, so was I. There’s one stupid hunt that’s unlocked after a lengthy quest chain from Vyv (the fat photographer in Lestallum). Get ready for a lot of travel and load screens.

Adamantoise hunt only unlocks after you’ve done the sidequest to face him.

Dungeon Bosses I’m pretty damn sure the recycled dungeon bosses require you to complete the dungeon before the hunts become available.

Hunt Pre-requisite: Finishing a hunt unlocks further ones. While this seems weird I’m nearly 100% sure this happened in Maagho. I could be wrong was just in a daze…

Hunt Basics & FAQ

Broke? Hunts. Need EXP? Hunts.
Megalixirs and Mega Phoenix? HUNTS!

Hunts are unlocked very early in the game – you literally can’t miss it.

All hunt bills are obtained from tipsters (restaurants). Each hunt gives you rewards – usually Gil and Items. EXP is pretty great too, which is obtained when beating marks.

Completing hunts and killing bounties give Stars, which increase your hunters rank. The primary benefit of increasing your rank is being able to undertake more difficult marks.

The hunt system is pretty basic, and there isn’t much to wonder about. The only sad part is you can only take on one hunt at a time!

YOU CAN TURN IN HUNTS AT ANY TIPSTER!!!!
You can repeat hunts for gil / exp!

Hunter Rank Rewards & Requirements

Hunter Rank Stars Reward Title
Rank 1 0 ?
Rank 2 5 Titanium Bangle Trapper
Rank 3 15 Heliodor Bracelet Chaser
Rank 4 30 Silver Bangle Ranger
Rank 5 50 Sapphire Bracelet Slayer
Rank 6 40 Gold Bangle Officer
Rank 7 40 Black Choker Guardian
Rank 8 40 Blue Diamond Bracelet (?) Grandmaster
Rank 9 40 Centurion Bangle Hand of Mercy
Rank 10 43 Dark Matter Bracelet Alleyway Jack

The rewards for actually ranking up are secondary, as they aren’t THAT good to be a motivator to get your hunter rank up. Again the main benefit of ranking up is purely to undertake better bounties.


Well, happy hunting! FFXV Hunts kind remind you of FFXII, ey? But the latter pulled it off better…

  1. This is a great guide! I don’t know why they didn’t make it easier to track in game, since you can’t have multiple hunts going at once (i.e. one from each tipster). Thank you very much!

  2. Just hit Rank 8, some new R9’s have shown up now

    Breeding Season: Rooster Extermination Level 70
    People-Eating Snake has Got to Go Level 78
    A wall in our Way Level 84

    At the Meldacio Hunter HQ

  3. You are missing a Hunt on your list.

    24 Help Needed in EXINERIS Megalixer Lestallum (Middle) R3 Night EXINERIS Power Plant Cleigne Garchimacera

    Thanks for your help with finding my last 3 points for level 10 hunter. Just wanted to help to keep the list complete.

  4. A Lost Painting Handkerchief Maagho RX, is not a rank x hunt I completed it when I was at altissia during chapter 9 hunter rank 5 or 6, most likely rank 6.

    Completing everything I could in chapter 14 but before accepting the adman. side quest, the following hunts are not available (at rank 8) not even viewable
    Rank 3/4 Hunts
    Fiend of the Fallgrove
    No Stopping the Great Stink
    Trembling Killers
    An Omen Crawls upon the ground
    Bones Seek an Offering
    Dead General Strikes Down the King
    And of course you can’t select the the 4 rank9 hunts or the one rank x hunt.

    Hope this helps

    • I’m at rank 9 22/43 in chapter 13 and I can’t find the remaining hunts noticed some hunts in middle lestallum are not showing up helppppppp

      • Hmm, which hunts exactly? You need to clear some of the optional dungeons for some of these to show up. Middle lestallum… I can help you more if you give me examples of which ones arent showin up

  5. I have checked a few sources and this is the only one with the right rewards, notably the hunts in Altissia, every other guide i found, even the guide book has different (better) rewards for the Altissia hunt but they are wrong, this is right. Do you know when the rewards changed?
