Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak - All Endemic Life Locations

Capcom's newest Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak expansion has much to offer, boasting tons of new Endemic Life scattered across the many different locales in the game. Hunters can find nine new types of Endemic Life, each taking the form of various shapes, sizes, and species in Sunbreak.

While some of these creatures can be advantageous to players, others seem to only cause havoc to Hunters and Monsters alike. This guide will detail all nine new Endemic Life in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, including each of their locations and how to find them.

MHR Sunbreak - List Of All Endemic Life And Locations

For the uninitiated, Endemic Life are unique creatures that inhabit various areas within the locales of Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak. Unfortunately, Hunters will not be able to capture these Monsters; instead, they can only photograph them.

As mentioned earlier, the latest expansion update features nine unique Endemic Life scattered across the map for eager Hunters to find. We've detailed each of them below and their respective locations.
