MHR Sunbreak - All Buddy Recon Locations And How To Find

The new Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak expansion update boasts a slew of new features, ranging from new weapons and locales to new Monsters for players to slay. There are also several new features and gameplay mechanics.

Among these are Buddy Recon Points, which let players Fast Travel to various parts of a map, including non-campsite locations. There are multiple Buddy Recon Points in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak. This guide will explain how they work and how to find them.

MHR Sunbreak - How To Find All Buddy Recon Points

The Buddy Recon system is unlocked after completing two Master Rank quests. Once unlocked, you can place a Buddy at any location on the map to act as a Recon Point. Depending on the location and distance traveled, using the Recon Point will cost you Kamura Points.

There are two Recon Points per map, and you can find the locations of each of them in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak indicated below. Notably, you can only use these Recon Points once per hunt.
