Monster Hunter Rise: How to Get Piercing Claws
In Monster Hunter Rise, you get a claw, and you get a claw, and YOU get a claw! Okay, maybe not that many claws. Regardless, you'll want specific ones, and if you clicked on this article, you want to get your hands on some Piercing Claw for your troubles.
Piercing Claw is a High Rank material, so you're going to have to take on some High Rank monsters to get some — which is expected since you're making High Rank armor by this point and you just can't craft HR gear using Low Rank materials.
Monster Hunter Rise: Piercing Claw Locations
A pretty long list of armors and a smaller list of weapons require at least one Piercing Claw to craft, the Ludroth S gear, in particular, requiring a few to get it all made.
Luckily, getting Piercing Claws isn't that difficult. Five High-Rank monsters can give you a Piercing Claw at the end of the quest, these being:
Again: Piercing Claw is a High Rank material, meaning you need to slay these monsters at High-Rank. These monsters at Low Rank will not drop the claws, so do not bother farming them in hopes of getting them.
If, for some reason, you are having a difficult time getting Piercing Claws from the monsters listed above at High Rank, try capturing them instead of slaying. This is done easily enough using a Shock Trap on the monster when it is low, then spamming a few Tranq Bombs on its face to knock it out.
Piercing Claw is one of the earlier High Rank materials you'll need to get crafting HR gear. Do be aware that some materials must be obtained via Meowcenaries, so make sure you keep them busy as you continue on your hunts.
