Unlocking All Hunters and Monsters:
Here is how you can unlock every hunter and monster in the game. In order to unlock Wraith you need to complete Tier 1 Character Mastery Requirement for Kraken and for Hyde you need to complete Complete Tier 1 Character Mastery Requirement for Markov. If you are interested in unlocking the Parnell, you would need to wrap up Tier 1 Character Mastery Requirement for Hyde. You can get the Griffin by completing Tier 1 Character Mastery Requirement for Maggie and Abe by Tier 1 Character Mastery Requirement for Griffin.
Lazarus can be obtained by completing Tier 1 Character Mastery Requirement for Val and Caira can be obtained by completing Tier 1 Character Mastery Requirement for Lazarus. You can get Bucket by wrapping up Tier 1 Character Mastery Requirement for Hank and Cabot by completing Tier 1 Character Mastery Requirement for Bucket. Once you unlock them, you will receive the ‘Collect them all’ Achievement/Trophy.
You can unlock the Behemoth only through pre-order at the moment. But given that the game is already out, you can’t get it for now. You have wait till Spring as Behemoth will be available for purchase for $14.99 as part of the Monster Expansion Pack.
Levelling up and earning Experience points/ XP faster:
Try and play in offline mode and try to level up as much as you can against the bots. Everything from XP to character progression will get carried to the online component. The fastest way to level is to participate in the evacuation campaign where you will earn experience points for every match you will play. If you play the fifth match you will receive 600 experience points. For additional tips, check out the video below:

Miscellaneous Tips and Tricks:
General tips and tricks:
The best way to play is to never chase the monster. Form strategies with your team instead try to encircle the monster in a trap. Stop killing the wildlife as they are essentially a part of your team. Use them to your advantage. You don’t need to reload, guns will reload automatically for you.
Lava Bomb: This allows it to throw large molten rocks.
Rock Wall: This is useful if the Behemoth wants to escape.
Tongue Grab: Useful for grabbing a distant target.
Fissure: On impact, this develops a powerful shockwave.
