How to Get Monster Hardbone in Monster Hunter World

Monster Hardbone is a Rarity 6 item that can be tough to find, and you’re going to have to fight high-rank monsters to obtain it. Make sure before you try and farm this crafting resource that you equip your strongest weapons and armor because the two beasts you have to face aren’t pushovers. For the most part you’re only going to find Monster Hardbone on High Rank expeditions and quests, but there is a very small chance you’ll run into it elsewhere.
