Where to Find Fireclaws for Fireclaw Sac Webbing

There are two locations where you can easily find Fireclaws in HFW. Both of the sites are located somewhat close to each other on the map making farming them easier.

  • The easiest area to locate is directly to the East of Thornmarsh.
  • The second is a bit southeast of the first site.

You’ll want to make sure that you don’t run toward the other site if you’re looking to escape since you’ll end up with another Fireclaw chasing after you.

How to Salvage Fireclaw Sac Webbing

To salvage the Sac Webbing from a Fireclaw, you’ll need to kill it without setting it ablaze or puncturing the Blaze Unit on its chest.

The best tools for this are Sharpshot Bows with Strikethrough Arrows. These arrows won’t puncture the Blaze Unit and set the Fireclaw on fire. With a range of abilities that let it keep up the heat, you’ll want to stay as far away and as hidden as possible, hence the choice of Sharpshot Bows.

Possible Sharpshot Bows to use: 

  • Piercing Sharpshot Bow
  • Delta Sharpshot Bow
  • Regalla’s Wrath
  • Gravesinger’s Lament
  • Blacktide Sharpshot Bow (Burning Shores DLC pre-order bonus)

If you have the Burning Shores DLC and have completed it, you can use the upgraded Railgun mode for the Spectre Gauntlet. The Railgun projectile does the same as the Strikethrough Arrows: they go right through enemies. If you overcharge the Spectre Gauntlet, however, it’ll overheat and won’t be able to fire for a short time. 

Once the Fireclaw is dead, go loot its body to obtain the Sac Webbing.
