Monster Hunter Rise – How to Find Fire Lanterns

Monster Hunter Rise is the newest game in the rapidly growing series, this time at least for the time being exclusively for the Nintendo Switch. This isn’t just a Switch version of Monster Hunter World, it’s a completely new game. This brings with it a lot of new areas to explore and missions to complete, but these are not always the easiest to find out. Even some of the first few missions in the game are a bit vague about what to find. This guide will teach you how to find the fire lanterns you want.

How to find fire lanterns

Fire lanterns are an item you’ll come across throughout the Monster Hunter Rise, but the first time you’ll be introduced is right after completing training missions. The first level 1 quest is Roly-Poly Lanterns, which requires you to deliver 8 fire lanterns to complete the mission.

The problem with this is that while asking for fire extinguishers, the item is not named that way when you are out on the hunt. Instead, you need to look out for something called a shimmering red berry, which is a unique item. When you pick this plant, you will get different numbers of fire lanterns, which can be just one or even several. As a result, you will have to find several to complete this quest.

To help you here, the map itself is marked with green dots that indicate where a fire lantern should be. However, this can get a little tricky. Sometimes they’re on the ground exactly where the marker is. In other cases, however, you will have to climb some walls to get to and get a higher level.

The fire lanterns are an account item. So if you just grab them, your quest requirement will be met automatically until you find enough. At this point the search is over and the timer to return to the village begins to countdown.

Monster Hunter Rise is now available exclusively for the Nintendo Switch. Also take a look at all the other guides that you can find here as well.
