Expedition Quests

Connect with riders from anywhere in the world to explore exclusive areas that are available only in co-op mode. Each of these areas contains multiple nests, increasing your chances of finding rare monster eggs.

To unlock the co-op Expedition Quests feature, you'll need to first acquire in-game Expedition Tickets. There are different types of tickets that will determine your Expedition experience and potential findings; for example, using rare Expedition Tickets will make it much more likely that you and your friends can obtain rare eggs.

You may also encounter monsters in this mode that cannot be found anywhere else in-game. Team up with your friends to take them down and leave the area with your eggs safely guarded!

Versus Battles

Up to four players can participate at a time in this Battle Royale feature, where you'll pit the Monsties you've raised against those of your friends.

There are different types of rules you can set at the beginning of a Versus Battle:

  • Balanced Rules—provides a fair, laidback battle experience
  • No Limit Rules—this option results in an all-out, anything-goes brawl
  • Quick Rules—allows for a brief Versus Battle, in which each participant only has one Heart apiece
