Monster Hunter Rise: Monster Bone + | How to get Monster Bone +

By Rebecca Jones, Wednesday, 31 March 2021 17:22 GMT

Monster Bone + is a material in Monster Hunter Rise. As the name suggests, it’s a better-than-average type of Monster Bone, and is correspondingly tricky to get hold of.

How to get Monster Bone + in Monster Hunter Rise

Monster Bone + can only be obtained by hunting certain High Rank monsters as part of Quests.

Four types of monsters drop Monster Bone +: Great Baggi, Great Izuchi, Great Wroggi, and Kulu-Ya-Ku.

Hunting any of the four gets you Monster Bone + as a Target Reward.

Alternatively, Great Baggi and Great Wroggi also have a chance to drop the item when they’re Captured. The likelihood of the drop containing a Monster Bone + is nigh-on identical in both cases, regardless of whether you target or capture.

Unfortunately, those chances are only 12% or 13%, so be prepared to hunt a lot of monsters for this one.

Quests that include Monster Bone + as a reward

You can pick up Monster Bone + on many different quests in Monster Hunter Rise.

There’s a fairly even split between Village Quests (single-player) and Hub Quests (single- or multiplayer), as well as between Key (main) and Non-Key (side) quests.
