Monster Hunter Rise - Bone locations: How to get an Eroded Skeleton, Sturdy Bone, Pale Bone and other rare bones

A list of bone locations throughout Monster Hunter Rise.

Monster Hunter Rise Bones are one of many components you'll need to construct weapons and armour pieces for your Hunter and companions.

There are all sorts of kinds out there - with standard Monster Bones ranging from S to L and + sizes, through to a Pale Bone, Massive Bone, Sturdy Bone and an Eroded Skeleton.

Though all of these are found from bone piles and hunts, the exact locations of which are not always clear - which is where this list of Monster Hunter Rise bone locations comes in.

What are Monster Hunter Rise bones used for?

Bones are just one of many items you'll obtain during quests in Monster Hunter Rise, which can then be used to craft and upgrade armour and weapons for you and your companions.

These can be gathered from Bone Piles and as rewards from specific hunts. Bone Piles are fairly common to find across the maps, signalled by a monster skeleton icon.

Once you approach one you'll see the carcass of a monster glowing. You only need to approach it and press the button prompt. Note that you can gather Ore while riding your Palamute.

Where to find Monster Bone S, Monster Bone M, Monster Bone L and Monster Bone Plus / Monster Bone+ locations

Despite being part of the same 'family', these all come from different sources:

  • Monster Bone S location: Bones Piles, but also obtained as reward from hunting Great Izuchi in Low Rank
  • Monster Bone M location: Obtained as reward from hunting Barroth, Great Baggi, Khezu, Great Wroggi and Kulu-Ya-Ku in Low Rank
