There are lots of rare items and wild animals to find Monster hunter rise, with the elusive king rhino bug being one of them. Found very rarely in the environment, and usually in very hard-to-reach places, this Collector's Dream Bug is primarily sought to complete a side quest, albeit a very important one. See below in this guide for more information on this.
Where to find King Rhino, needed for the Economic Boost quest
Monster Hunter Rise's flooded forest is full of endemic life, because the environment really demands it. Areas with waterfalls, underground caves, lush vegetation and a gigantic pyramid, everything can be found there. Including the bug we're looking for, the King Rhino.
King Rhino is required to complete part of a side quest, called Economic Boost. The quest is triggered after completing the 3* Gathering Center Key Quest and then the 4* Urgent Quest. There are plenty of side quests in the game, but this one in particular is very important, as it unlocks an additional Argosy submarine, making it a total of three if you've unlocked the other via quests. town.
That said, let's see how to find this insect. Easier said than done, as it rarely appears in easily accessible regions of the map, such as behind the pyramid where we are, in the image above. If you are lucky enough, one can spawn on the trees found in this area, as with many other places around the Flooded Forest.
However, one surefire way to get a King Rhino in Monster Hunter Rise is to literally climb the pyramid to its very top. This is actually a difficult task, as it requires precise parkour in combination with your Wirebug skills. First, you need to climb the stairs at its entrance until you reach an empty room. If you mount the camera, you will see that the ceiling has a hole in the middle. You have to go through this hole to reach the upper floor.
To do this, there could be several ways to achieve success. What I did was mount my Palamute, run towards the wall of this empty room, then jump up with my hunter and point my Wirebug to the hole above. I used two Wirebug plans, in conjunction with extra hops, so if you have a third one, of course, it's much easier. Then, after reaching the upper floor, reach its exit. There will be a dead end, leading all the way back to where you started. Don't jump down, because we're going even higher.
From this output, here comes the tricky part. You need to aim your camera in the best possible way, aiming above the top of the pyramid, while having your camera pointed there, jump off the edge of the exit and use your Wirebug to get over that exit towards a ledge he has. From there, fill in your Wirebugs and do exactly the same, in order to reach the top platform.
If you manage to do all this platforming correctly, you will finally reach the top end of the pyramid. Although there is apparently nothing here, if you pay close enough attention you will notice a cracked wall. This wall can be broken by placing barrel bombs next to it. Just be careful not to get caught by the explosion. Once the wall is broken, you can finally enter the last room of the pyramid, which not only has a relic inside, but also on one of its walls you will see the legendary King Rhino. Every time I visited this place there was one, which probably makes it 100% chance to spawn.
This concludes our guide on how to find yourself a Rhino King. While there's a lot of effort going into hitting this bug, it's worth it because you're now one step closer to getting a third sub.
