    Everybody already knows how.
    It's no secret.

    When wanting to profit with hunting, it's all about MU.
    And so be it also efficiency which, according to MA, should add the 0~7% extra return.

    Small mobs like cornundacauda's drop focus lenses.
    Troopers drop adaptive fire rate components
    etc etc.

    Also to keep in mind that those MU materials tend to drop in waves.
    If they aren't dropping, stop shooting.

    So, it;s no secret. You just have to look at the auction to see what pays MU and search the mob that drops it.


    *edit*
    alternatively you can try things like this:

    I used in past predator m83 and i was at 95% tt return. Was super hard to make profit most i was doing on mayhem events farming boxes/tokens bla/bla.
    After fen i decided to use only high eff weapons so i didnt farm with weapons under 82/83% eff ( used Lp70 fen and fen claws) and i really felt the difference i ended 2019 with 97,3% return. Im happy with that ? TT yes but wish there was more markup opportunities outside mayhem events.

    What i want to say eff does matter not like some dudes here to claims things and they do 200 ped runs. Imo try to see what can you use UL and get best EFF then find something that will give you best markup per 1-2hours.

    Mobs with at least 200 HP is what's killing it for me.

    For one thing, 10K bankroll is only enough to comfortably grind mobs just barely above that threshold. For another thing, there is a lot of markup to be had in the below 200 HP threshold.
    Exarosaur youngs are one of the most profitable mobs to hunt by raw % due to the low cost to kill and high markup of blazar fragments. During a relatively brief test I was getting blazars about every 10th kill, and the markup on the blazars fully covered the cost to kill the mob. The result was a profit margin on anything above 90% TT returns.
    And since blazar fragments are used so extensively in ArMatrix blueprint farming it's a hard market to flood.

    Maybe you will or maybe you won’t. There is no guaranteed way to profit from just hunting.
    The game is not designed that way. If it was, MA would be out of business in no time.
    Best chance to recover losses or make a profit would be to offer a service, play with MUs, buy deeds, sweat and fruit walk or get lucky.

    Can you? Maybe Yes
    Will you? Maybe No

    But it is possible.

    100% dedication on a low level mob with MU as mentioned several times. Why doesn't everyone do this? Because it's boring and soul sucking. You spend time, which is the most valuable commodity we have, for what? 100 ped profit after months of grinding? You only live once remember

    Better work a few extra shifts irl, and have fun blasting away your peds foe those swirls.

    I think you're asking the wrong question, because the answer is yes for any arbitrary value of bankroll/gear/skills. The main tool required for profit is knowledge, other than that the current system will allow you to succeed at any level.
