We know people love Monster Hunter, but the absolutely – ahem – monster amount of Monster Hunter Now downloads is still something of a surprise. Niantic and Capcom announced recently that Monster Hunter Now has reached over 5 million downloads in its first week, an absolutely whopping number and a great start for the mobile spin-off.

To celebrate, Niantic is giving fans a bonus package that includes 5,000 Zenny and two free paintballs. Simply use one of the brand new Monster Hunter Now codes to get access to it. Alongside this, Niantic revealed the first Monster Hunter Now event, as the Diablos Invasion event hits players this weekend on September 23, 2023, and September 24, 2023. The event runs from 1:00 pm until 4:00 pm local time on both days.

During the event, Diablos appears more frequently in desert regions. Plus, time-limited event quests are active, asking you to complete new missions, such as snapping a picture of Diablos using the AR mode within Monster Hunter Now. You can learn more about the Diablos Invasion event at the Monster Hunter Now website.
