Monster Hunter World Iceborne Trophies Guide

One thing to note before you crack into Monster Hunter World Iceborne is that you’re going to have to have finished the base game’s story. Some of the trophies in this list will also involve you getting over the seemingly insurmountable hump that is the narrative of the Iceborne expansion, and also ensuring that you’ve gotten into the Guiding Lands content.

Obviously, there will be spoilers for the monsters that are going to appear, so turn back now if this is a problem for you. Veterans of the series will recognize a bunch of trophies to do with endemic life, and also achievements to do with the Lynians that were introduced in the base game. If you’re having trouble netting any of the critters for trophies, we would recommend acquiring the Feline Zoomaster food buff that increases your encounter rate with rare endemic life.
