Monster Hunter Stories 2: How to Swim

To swim in Monster Hunter Stories 2 you will need to have a Monstie that has the Swim Rider Action. The first you will come across is the Royal Ludroth, which can be found in Alcala. This is the second main area you can explore, so just progress the story to this point. If you get a Royal Ludroth to retreat back to its den you can get yourself an egg and hatch it.

Once you have a Monstie that can swim, set it as your lead Monstie. Head to the edge of a stream of water and press B when prompted. You can now swim around and reach new areas.
