While the focus is on Monster hunter rise is to hunt huge monsters and skin them to make cool looking armor, lesser creatures have their purpose too, with ketodon being among those who are highly sought after. If you're asking why, then simply because they're part of a side quest, in order to complete your Sandy Plains subcamp. For more on this, and to see where Kestodons can be found, read our guide below.



Where to find Kestodon in Monster Hunter Rise

At some point during your adventure, you unlock a certain side quest which, if you complete it, you can have an additional camp in Sandy Plains. To trigger this quest, you must first find the location where the camp will be, on the specific map. If you haven't found it yet, here's a photo to save you time:

The red marker shows its exact location, so as long as you found the spot, you should be good. The quest itself is very simple, as you only need to kill 8 Kestodons, in the Sandy Plains biome. Do that, and the new subcamp will be available right after.

Now let's talk about why you're here, where exactly are those damn Kestodon monsters? To put it simply, everywhere. They can spawn in almost every section and region of the map, so if you run around for less than 5 minutes, you'll find 8 of them in no time. But, if you are in a hurry and want to save a lot of time, it is suggested to search for them in region 2, and in the middle of region 5 and 9, where the thumbnail screenshot is also taken. It is very common for a herd to be found there, so take them out and look for the other 2 or 3 that you will miss.



And that's where and how you can find Kestodon in Monster Hunter Rise. Easy targets, easy quest. Please note that only Kestodons in Sandy Plains count towards quest completion, not any of the other maps. Enjoy your new camp.
