The latest entry in the Monster Hunter series is the latest game of the series, and it’s Iceborne. It’s developed by Capcom and is mostly taking place in the cold north. With that in mind, Iceborne has many elements that can be used to determine what type of armor and weapon you will need to hunt monsters. This guide will cover all the armor and weapon data of Iceborne (MHW).

Hello and welcome to the Gold Reward Guide! Today, I’m going to be talking about how to hunt the Iceborne Great Maccao, a monster that I’ve had a lot of trouble finding information on. This is a monster that you get a huge amount of experience from and it’s very effective for gathering a lot of research materials. However, it’s simply too dangerous to go alone as the hunt will take a lot of time and is very complex. Therefore, I’m going to be sharing my knowledge with you to help you on your hunt against this deadly foe. I’m hoping that this guide will be able to help you in figuring out how to hunt this beast, so I hope you’re ready to take on this Iceborne Great

It’s been a while since we last visited this lovely planet of Iceborne, and when we did, we had to find the secret gateway that we missed the first time around. But now that we’ve found it, we can get back to guiding you through the most optimal path for Master Rank hunting in Iceborne..

The Research Requests are an optional side mission in Monster Hunter World Iceborne. This necessitates taking pictures of several Palico moggies doing various activities, one of which is ordering a group of their own.

Each quest has its own set of criteria, and there are a total of 20 of them, some of which are sealed until you complete specific tasks. 

To activate this, talk with the Lyrian Researcher in Seliana. He will inform you about the study and provide you with a Surveyor Set, which is used to capture pictures of the moggies doing whatever they do. 

Once you believe you have a decent enough picture, you must return to the Researcher to turn it in. He may be a nuisance at times, so I now refer to him as ‘Awkward Blighter’ since he struggles with perfection. If you want to go for the Gold Rewards, you’ll probably find out about it as well. Gold Rewards, on the other hand, are not required, and you may just pass with a Bronze if you choose. My guides, on the other hand, are focused on nailing that perfect shot and claiming the all-powerful Gold.


Capture as much as possible = This refers to capturing just the moggy and not the surroundings. Basically, the more of the moggy you get and the less of anything else, the better. 1st Subject: Front = The kitty must face the camera.


COMPLETION CONDITIONS:  * Capture as large as possible * 3 Subjects or more * Setting up a Gimalkyne Ivy Trap

REWARDS: GOLD: DeluxeWyverian Print  SILVER: Silver Egg BRONZE: 800 points

This one may take a while depending on what weapon you choose, as you will need to leap onto the back of a monster, which may be annoying since it occurs at random, but make use of the surroundings and other items to aid you land on top of the beast. Slopes and cliff tops may be quite useful. The precise location of where to accomplish this may vary, since you’ll need to be near a Grimalkyne kitten to pull it off in the first place. If one isn’t indicated on the map as a ‘Grimalkyne Ivy Trap,’ you’ll have to go about looking for one, which can be located on higher platforms. Jump aboard a big monster near one of these cats and ride it into the trap, where you may snap a picture of it. Don’t be like me and forget to take one!

To help make it easier to find all the research requests I’ve requested over the last couple of weeks, I’ve created a list of all the research requests I’ve made over the past couple of weeks. This list is all the research requests I’ve made between August 28th to September 14th. (This list is from the point of view of the research requests I have made. If I have made research requests in the previous days, this list will be updated when I finish the latest research request I have made.).
