These are referred to as Hunters and make a living using their powers to conquer the dungeons within the Gates. In this world, the low ranking hunter Jinwoo Sung is known as the "weakest hunter in all mankind". One day, Jinwoo is fatally injured while trying to conquer a high level dungeon and at that moment a mysterious quest window appears in front of him. On the brink of death, Jinwoo decides to accept the quest, rise in rank and fight his way to the top of the Hunters.
