Monster Hunter World is full of side quests to tackle and some of them are a little more annoying than others. One of the quests that has been driving many players crazy is the one that asks them to find the phantom bird. Not to worry, there’s a pretty simple trick to locating this sneaky bird that any Monster Hunter World player should be able to pull off.
YouTuber Mtashed has found an easy way to locate the Downy Crake, though it might feel a little like a hack… To pull it off, players just need to continually reload Wildspire Waste or the Ancient Forest. In the first section of each of these maps, the sneaky bird has a chance to load on the backs of the wildlife.
After reloading these zones until you spot the bird, you’ll need to carefully sneak up on the creature. Be sure to be wearing a ghillie mantle to avoid detection. Once you’re close enough, you should be able to easily interact with the creature and capture it.
After collection of the bird, players can return to the researcher and claim the Gold Wyverian Print. This special items allows players to get any gem in the game. Be sure to put it to good use.
That’s all there is to it! For more tips and tricked, be sure to check out our other Monster Hunter World guides.
