Monster Hunter Collaborations (モンスターハンタ コラボ). This Article is all about the different collaborations, crossovers, and promotional gimmicks that the Monster Hunter Series have announced to date. These campaigns help Capcom sell more copies and to reach out to other people who have never played the game yet or are oblivious to the games existence. Depending on the agreement, collaborations can involve something small like giving away their latest copy of a game or as far as introducing other characters into the game.

The GMR Chrome Heart

GMR was a monthly magazine that is no longer in print. Its first issue debuted on February 2003 and the last issue ended in 2005. The GMR Chrome Heart is the first ever collaboration in the Monster Hunter franchise. This Great Sword was obtainable by completing an Event Quest called "The GMR Heavy Metal Crusade" which first appeared on October 24, 2004. The quest involved slaying a Diablos. The weapon costs 499z to make and requires the following materials: Chrome Voucher x5, Machalite Ore x5, Iron Ore x35, Unknown Skull x1. Because of its ease in obtaining and relatively decent stats, it was the weapon of choice for many new players.
