Hunts are one piece of the optional content provided in Final Fantasy XV. Your goal in Hunts is to talk to a tipster at any of the restaurants and learn information about some monsters/daemons that need eliminated. You can only take one Hunt at a time, for whatever reason unbeknownst to the player, and upon completing the Hunt, you will be rewarded with three things: stars contributing to your Hunter Rank, much needed Gil, and an item/piece of equipment.
One of the nice things that was added in this game is the ability to repeat any of the Hunts you have already completed. Unfortunately, you do not receive the full reward each time, but you still get a fraction of the Gil reward from repeating the Hunt. This is especially useful if you are going after one of the unique hunts for item drops, such as the Zu. One last thing is that upon reaching a new Hunter Rank, you will rewarded with an item. The following table contains a list of all of the Ranks, the number of Stars needed for the next Rank, and the item you receive.
