Monster Hunter: Rise, available now on Nintendo Switch and PC, offers a vast number of collectibles and items to be found in the wild.

One of these items, Twisted Rockbone, is a valuable and viable item that is required for the creation of quite a few excellent weapons. In this guide, find out where you, and your possible crew, are most likely to find it!

Where to find Twisted Rockbone?


You can begin your quest for Twisted Rockbone by taking a trip to The Shrine Ruins, with its map located above. From there, you’ll want to visit Zones 3, 5, 7, 8, or 11 and begin to scavenge through the Bone Piles that are located there. You may need to use your Wirebug to help you reach the higher locations, as some of them may be harder to reach. There are also a few rock piles in the middle of the map near Zone 13, after venturing downstream a bit.

For more detailed instructions:

  • Zone 3: Just below the area marker to the east
  • Zone 5: Right on the map marker, high in the hills. You can easily access it using the Great Wirebug near the Zone 7 pile.
  • Zone 7: West of the zone marker, up in the hills
  • Zone 8: Southwest of the zone marker, in the hills
  • Zone 11: Southeastern corner of the area is where you’ll find this Bone Pile.
  • Zone 13: Head to the south and drop down the waterfall, and make sure to stay tight against the western side of the map to find it.
