I’ve recently got into playing Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate on the 3ds, and this term comes up from the community from time to time. It’s a little cryptic to ‘grok’, unless you’re deep in the community, so here’s a quick post explaining it.
Put most simply, it’s a quest/monster hunt run done as fast (and insanely) as possible. As my good friend Visi explained:
“It’s basically where you take in heavy bowguns and stunlock the mob”
So, bowguns being a weapon you can deploy, and stunlock, force the monster to be constantly stunned; locked into stun.
And that’s it. If you want to know what ‘hame’ means, read on…
‘Hame’, also known as はめ in japanese, is the vulgar term for having sex, or in other words fucking. So, in Monster hunter terms, a hame run is a run in which you fuck the monster over.
