How To Farm Behemoth Parts
What Are Behemoth Parts?
Parts are materials obtained from Behemoths during hunts when you break off their parts, e.g. horns, tails, legs, etc. These materials are necessary to craft the various weapons and armors available in the game.
Rare Parts Are Needed For Higher Level Upgrades
As you progress through upgrading your weapons and armor, they may require rarer parts for you to be able to upgrade them further.
Check The Parts You Need
Before you go on a hunt, check the parts you actually need to craft a weapon or armor at the Weaponsmith or Armorsmith. These parts are listed on the crafting screen.
You Can Check Which Part To Break on PC
On PC, you can hover your mouse on the icons below the "create" or "upgrade" button to see more information about that part, including which Behemoth & which part to break off. This function is absent on console.
Best Done Via Pursuits
When hunting for specific Behemoth parts, it's best to take on Pursuits as this type of hunt allows you to select the Behemoth you will hunt.
Break Off Monster Parts Strategically
Once you know the source of the parts you need, take on a hunt, and aim specifically for the parts. Ask your team to help you via chat or voice chat, so you can work together on breaking off parts.
Check For Part Damage
Always check whether you are inflicting part damage on the Behemoth. These are indicated by yellow damage numbers, which means that the part you are hitting hasn't been broken off yet.Check Out Beginner Tips On Damage Types & Hunting Basics
