There are several resources you’ll need to hunt down in Monster Hunter Rise to increase your arsenal and upgrade your equipment. Most of these can be acquired by taking on the larger creatures, but a handful of resources can only be picked up from the smaller monsters, such as Meaty Hide. You can find it in a handful of places, and it’s a hard resource to find. This guide will cover how to get Meaty Hide in Monster Hunter Rise.
The region you want to visit to find Meaty Hide will be the Frost Islands. You can access this area once you reach two-star hunter quests with the Village Quest board. From there, you can freely take expedition or gathering quests to roam these areas. If you’re solely looking for Meaty Hide, we recommend you take an easier quest to avoid worrying about battling a massive monster on the map.
The creature you want to find in the Frost Islands will be the Zamite. It’s a dragon-like creature, an amphibian, so you’ll want to stick to the regions with water in the Frost Islands. Meaty Hide will only drop off of Zamite in low-rank areas,s and they are the only creature in Monster Hunter Rise with a chance to drop it.
You can usually find them wandering around regions 5, 8, and the eastern part of 10. You can also find them between 4 and 6, and 10 and 5, the areas right in the middle of these regions. It would help if you had your wirebug to access these areas, and there are plenty of monster bones and rocks scattered throughout the area to make the terrain difficult to manage.
The Meaty Hide drop off a Zamite happens when you carve them, and there’s a 38 percent chance of it appearing when you do it.
