Step 2: Blow the Load
Now that you’ve listened to Chico ramble on and on about monsters, head over to Extra Ops and go out on [029] Item Capture. This is a seemingly simple mission. Go in, take care of the three guards, and blow up the item crate. However, there’s more to it than that if you want Capcom’s content.

Step 3: Chat with Trenya the Cat

Step 4: Monstrous Mission
Scroll to the end (or what should be the end) of your Extra Ops, and you’ll now find [121] Hunting Quest: Rathalos. This is your very first Monster Hunter quest. Hooray. If you can beat this flying beast, you’ll unlock extra quests to go forth and conquer.
