The Sunbreak DLC now includes a new location called The Citadel. It is a castle ruin encircled by forest and marsh. A frigid landscape awaits gamers outside the gates of the Citadel. Players might come across the Three Lords, formidable new enemies included with this expansion, inside the ruin. The map appears to include several sections surrounding the Citadel that are inaccessible to players. Yet, there appears to be a trail leading to a grayish, hazy place at the bottom of the map. This appears to be a dead-end to hunters as they approach it. However, Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak‘s Citadel offers a different path to find Area 13’s Hidden Cave.
Finding Citadel Area 13’s Hidden Cave in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak
Players must wield the Wirebug to enter a concealed space. Beneath a large, hollow tree stump, they will find Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak’s Hidden Cave in Area 13 of the Citadel. Hunters can use the Wirebug to fly about the map while exploring or recovering from attacks in combat. The Hidden Cave is accessible to Wirebug users.
In Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak’s Area 13 of the Citadel, a tree stump conceals the entrance to the Hidden Cave. Use the Wirebug to ascend to the top of the tree stump. It is positioned to the left of the pool full of Thornytoads.
Players can access the Hidden Cave by falling through the tree stump. Descend, then proceed through the tunnel. Before moving on, scavenge the mound of bones for some quick loot. Gamers will ultimately reach a chamber in the tunnel that leads out to the moat enclosing the Citadel.
One can locate mining outcrops that yield significant ores, such as Monster Hunter Rise’s Ultimas Crystals, in this Hidden Cave. You will also discover a fishing site and a Stump Sap. You can find a location to set down a Great Wirebug for fast travel and the Relic Record IX.
Finding the Hidden Cave in Area 13 of the Citadel will also erase the map’s haze. This is a must for game completionists.
Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak is available on PC and Nintendo Switch.
