Hunting Styles were introduced to the main series in Monster Hunter Generations. There are four of them, each altering the hunter’s moveset and giving them access to differing numbers of Hunter Arts. The player can select which style and arts they want to arm themselves with via their equipment box.

Striker Style (ストライカースタイル) is a relatively simple-to-use Style that lets you equip up to three Hunter Arts. It's also easier to charge up the Arts Gauge, so this style is perfect for going heavy on the Arts.

Aerial Style

Aerial Style (エリアルスタイル) is unique for allowing you to use an Aerial Dodge to jump on monsters and propel yourself high into the air. You can also launch yourself off of players and barrels. Great for mounting monsters.

Adept Style

Adept Style (ブシドースタイル) is all about waiting until the last second to evade or guard your foe's attacks, letting you perform Insta-Moves. It's difficult to pull off, but allows for devastating counterattacks.
