Monster Hunter World - Vespoid Location

Where to find Vespoids in the Ancient Forest in Monster Hunter World.


Monster Hunter World, as the name suggests, is all about hunting down monsters and killing them (or capturing them if you know how to trap a monster). With so many different creatures and animals to hunt, it can be difficult to know where to find a specific monster. The Vespoids can be tough to locate, especially for the first Investigation.

Where to Find Vespoids

Vespoids are located in the Ancient Forest, and take on the appearance of waspy, dragonfly-looking insect. In order to find Vespoids, you’re going to want to find a few specific areas, mainly: Area 6, 11, and 13. These are the areas where you will find the largest quantity of Vespoids.

Area 6 is likely going to be your best option, as it is located on the ground floor of the Ancient Forest, and has a decent supply of Vespoids to hunt. You will need to be cautious, as the Anjanath is known patrol this area, as is the Pukei-Pukei.

If you reach Area 6 and can’t see any Vespoids, try climbing the vines in the corner, this should alert the Vespoids and make them come out of hiding. In the event you still can’t find any Vespoids in Area 6, consider heading to Area 11, or even Area 13.

Area 13 is located on the second floor and is made up of vine-covered floors that can be climbed through using the long, ropey vines hanging from the ceiling. Because Vespoids are flying and don’t leave any discernable markings, you’re going to need to know exactly where to find them – you can’t track them like the large monsters.

The Vespoids should continue to spawn, allowing you to kill however many is required to complete the Investigation. If they don’t spawn, try another one of the areas mentioned above.
