Definitive Mousehunt Guide

Welcome to the kingdom of Gnawnia, fellow hunter! It is a place like no other, because it is threatened by a plague like no other! … Alright, yeah, the plague is mice … but these aren’t your standard little furballs!

Do you have what it takes to fight with the spooky creatures of the Catacombs? The exotic inhabitants of the Tribal Isles? Or even the strange, interdimensional mice from another reality, the Rift? Better set your trap! The kingdom needs you!



SPOILERS: This guide contains pictures! Many pictures! Pictures of cheese, pictures of traps and bases, pictures of (mostly run-of-the-mill) mice. (No boss mice!) It just looks nice!

The Guide aims to provide tips, tricks, and strategies while at the same time trying not to be too lengthy. What is missing, especially crafting recipes, and almost everything else that is not mentioned in here, can be found in some other key spots like the
MouseHunt Wiki
or through a quick search in the Forums.

The abbreviations I use should be self-explanatory, because I will have used the entire term of what they stand for beforehand. When there’s an abbreviation you aren’t quite able to crack, this page may be helpful.

      Thank you 🙂 The graphical part is all thanks to my web design collaborator, I’m just responsible for the words 🙂

    I returned to check my trap, but it appeared A Diamond Mouse ate a piece of cheese without setting off my trap.
    what does this mean? do I need more power?

      I’d need a little more information 🙂 Can you post your MH profile link? Just click on your MH shield and “copy link”.

    Hi MozKa – Any luck with the new area? Are the devs giving you a head start on getting through it? My team has been working through it and think we have a fair amount of it figured out, but wonder how close you are to completing it. Thanks for the EXCELLENT guide. Extremely well put together and very nice looking.

    • MozKa

      June 19, 2017 at 3:37 am

      Thanks 🙂

      Hi John,
      no, the devs don’t give me a headstart, I’m just another hunter, like anybody else playing the game 🙂 I get the same information and the same timeframes as you guys do.
      I’ve been in the new area from the start and have been hunting fairly regularly. Caught 3 Acos so far. I’m at the point where I’m getting into the details and already formulating strategies in my head to write about.

      I might have already started writing the new chapter, but I’m a bit preoccupied with my parents visiting me two weeks ago as well as this weekend. However, I’m pretty confident that I will have the new chapter at some point during the coming week 🙂

    Your where to go next guide.
    Note about iceberg.
    They did mention that you have the option of getting the zugzwangs scarf by catching icewing with Mk3 and unlocking seasonal garden or tribal acolyte dragon chest.

    It is in the adventure book this way and on the wiki.

    • MozKa

      August 16, 2017 at 11:11 pm

      Yes, I know that you can get the scarf by catching icewing. And because, as you say, it’s in the adventure book and on the wiki, that’s why I didn’t mention it. People can do their research and will find this easily enough.

    how to catch master of dojo with ambush trap and fan base

    • MozKa

      July 19, 2019 at 11:27 pm

      If that’s your best setup, just go to the Pinnacle Chamber, arm Rumble cheese, and have patience 🙂 It could take a dozen hunts or even more before you catch one, since the setup isn’t very strong, but it will happen sooner or later 🙂 Good luck!

    It would be nice if you could add search to this. I need to know where to go find an item, but I can’t find that in this breakdown. This is awesome, but I was used to the old one and could find recipes, etc easier. Thank you!!

    • MozKa

      May 16, 2020 at 1:17 pm

      My guide is just that, a guide, not a walkthrough 🙂 It doesn’t feature recipes, but teaches you how to teach yourself instead. If you’re looking for individual items or recipes, I suggest you have a look in the MH wiki!

  20. Sue Searcy

    May 17, 2020 at 6:49 pm

    Please add a search.. I’m trying to figure out where I need to go to get certain items, this used to be here as I could search and find that info. Thanks for the hard work!!

    • MozKa

      May 18, 2020 at 3:13 am

      There’s a search bar on the right side, right above “Recent Comments” and “Top Posts & Pages”.
      I don’t add or take this away, this is part of the WordPress website layout that the guide uses as a platform.

    I have been playing MH on and off since 2008 and I have used your guides a LOT 😀 Whenever I find myself struggling with some mouse or area, I search your page.
    So I just thought to come here and thank you for helping me progress during the years 🙂

      Awesome!! 🙂
      Yeah, it’s been around for a little over 7 years by now! That’s crazy!
      You keep the game going, then I’ll keep the guide going! 😀

    I havenot hunted for the black widow for a very long time. We now have one on our map and we are all battling to capture her. My question is…which area will be the best one to hunt for her and should we rather choole an area where we will use SB+ or does the area not really matter. Please any info
    /memory refresher will be most welcome.

    • MozKa

      February 28, 2022 at 2:56 pm

      In cases like these, the best tool to use is the Map Solver and Mouse Finder 🙂 Just type in which mouse you’re after and it generates a list of areas/setups with the projected catch rates!
