Looking for less speckled Monksnail? While wandering around the Elgado Outpost in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, you may find yourself being asked to photograph a huge critter on the dock for Flur the Sailor. If you complete this quest, you can catch a small monk snail of your own perched on top of your head.
But what exactly is Monksnail? where did you find it? If you haven’t encountered the joys of this rare form of endemic life in the base game, now is your chance. I’ll show you where to find Monksnail so you can get that pic, and that coveted snail toy to perch on your head.
Sunbreak Monksnail: where to find it in the Frost Islands
First, you need to explore the Frost Islands at night. This is important because it is the only time of day when Monksnail occurs. Once there, either head to the sub-camp to the northeast, or go directly from the starting camp to where you can see the red area above.

You’ll want to climb onto the deck of the large wrecked ship nearby. You can use wire bugs and walls to climb cliffs to get there, although you may want to grab an extra wire bug to make things easier. Once on deck, stand on the railing and look out to the sea to the east, past the end of the map.
Monksnail usually takes about ten minutes to emerge, crossing the water from right to left. If it doesn’t show up after a while, you’ll have to come back again. When you see it, take a photo and head back to Flur to unlock that layered armor headpiece.
