Ready, set, fight!

image via Capcom

Turf Wars are a special mechanic introduced in Monter Hunter World, then further expanded upon with every new iteration of the game. It has returned in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak and is bigger than ever. In essence, Turf Wars means that when two big monsters meet out in the world, they might fight in a cinematic battle, during which one or both of the monstrous participants might take sizeable damage, or drop an item; or both.
