Urgent: Pukei-Pukei Hunt (Main Quest) in MHW

Urgent: Pukei-Pukei Hunt Main Quest MHW

  • Quest Type: Main Quest
  • Quest Location: Ancient Forest
  • Quest Rank: 3

After securing the camp location during the Bird-Brained Bandit quest, there is still the need to deal with the Pukei-Pukei that poses a threat.

You will need to hunt down the Pukei-Pukei that is guarding the location where a shard from Zorah Magdaros has been found.

Once you have taken care of the Pukei-Pukei, the scholars will be able to examine the evidence that it has been lurking around.


The objective of this quest is for you to hunt down and kill the Pukei-Pukei that is wandering near within the Ancient Forest.


It would be a good idea to start out in Northeast Camp (11) to be closer to where the creature is nesting and from there on you can find its trail faster as you begin.

Look around the area in order to find its tracks and begin to follow them until your Scoutflies lead you to the area it currently is in.

As you continue to follow the Scoutflies, you will eventually find yourself coming face to face with the agitated Pukei-Pukeit.

Start dealing as much damage as you can and take advantage of the element of surprise as the creature will not attack you immediately if you arrive.

The Pukei-Pukei will attempt to flee the area once enough damage has been dealt to it and will do so by flying away.

You can either follow it by monitoring its trajectory or searching for its tracks in the area and following them to its new location.

There is a good chance you will find the Pukei-Pukei near a Great Jagras and the two will begin to fight each other.

You can take advantage of the opportunity and wait for one of them to weaken each other or take them head on.

If the Pukei-Pukei survives the attack from either you and the Great Jagras or simply the Great Jagras alone, it will attempt to flee to its nest.

Head towards its nest and attack it in its weakened state, dealing the final blows to ensure you slay it and complete the quest.

Quest Rewards

Finishing the Urgent: Pukei-Pukei Hunt will reward you with 2520 Zenny and later on allow you to partake in the quest called The Best Kind Of Quest to continue with the story.


  • The Pukei-Pukei is known for being able to inflict you with poison which can drain your health drastically which makes bringing antidotes an important precaution.
  • You can either follow the Pukei-Pukei by watching where it flies off too or hunt it down by searching for the tracks it leaves.
  • Allowing the Pukei-Pukei and the Great Jagras to fight will give you time to prepare to finish off the Pukei-Pukei later on.
