If you’re a fan of the monster-hunting genre, you know that nothing is more perplexing than trying to guess the monster’s remaining health. The age-old dilemma is whether you can defeat the monster before it destroys you. The introduction of Wild Hearts has sadly led to many gamers thinking alike. Our article answers how to view Kemono health bars in Wild Hearts.
Wild Hearts: How to Check Enemy Kemono Health Bars
Wild Hearts does not allow you to see the health of opponent Kemono, not even during battle.
Not that this is too much of a surprise, considering that Wild Hearts draws heavily from Monster Hunter. It lacks a health gauge, so you’ll have to use other indicators to judge how close your prey is to going down for good.
This doesn’t mean you have to guess how much health the Kemono has left, though; there are a few indicators in the game that can help you gauge how much damage you still need to deal to the boss.
The game uses the Kemono’s actions to indicate the creature’s current health status. Each Kemono in Wild Hearts has its own personality, and the game is kind enough to let you know about these oddities only after you’ve tracked down five of the same Kemono.
In general, your Kemono will go through the same pattern of changes during a fight regardless of your style. The first is that, after taking significant injury, it usually flees the scene. When a Kemono is running away from a fight, it is probably nearing the enrage state, the next phase that all Kemono attain. So follow it wherever it goes and keep battling it there. Depending on the Kemono path taken, this may occur several times.
If your character or your co-op hunting partner’s character declares that a Kemono has been angered, you will know that the Kemono has indeed become enraged. Over to the left, you’ll see a little conversation box with this information. The Kemono will start employing a new set of attacks that are typically considerably quicker and more aggressive, and they’ll start glowing bright red in various places. This is also the time when your Kemono can start losing limbs or have trouble regaining their footing when attempting to flee.
