Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin – How to Add, Remove, and Change Battle Buddies

Players adventuring through Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin will come across special characters in several places. Each area has a new character to meet and travel with for a specific area of the game including being with you during battles.

You will know them as Battle Buddies as hunters battle on their own. After players finish with the storyline and dive into the post-game activities, you can even switch among your Battle Buddies in order to have your best characters around. In that regard, the following guide will help players in finding all the Battle Buddies and how to partner with them.

Players only have to interact with the NPCs in order to make them Battle Buddies. They are present in their respective villages and you can simply talk to them. If you have a Battle Buddy already, the game will ask whether you want to switch with the new one. Ena is the only one who has no effect during battles and is there, but the process of keeping or removing is the same.
