The Volcano is a location introduced in Monster Hunter 2, it is a lot larger than its Monster Hunter predecessor, the region is also far more harsh and inhospitable. You may be under contract on a quest during an eruption, tread lightly. In Monster Hunter Freedom Unite two extra areas can be explored, they are mainly for Lavasioth hunts.

Lava flowing in this region is dangerous to walk near, and it overflows at night time causing some changes in the layout. You can find explosive rocks in some areas which will react to enough damage.


Base Camp

A shore, much like in the Jungle, instead of a tent your Base Camp has a Boat, there's two paths, one leading to Area 4 and the other to Area 1.

Area 1

An open area surrounded by high ledges and a deep ravine in the bottom left, during the day Apceros can be seen wandering around, while in the night the area may be filled with Bullfango and Iodprey, you don't need a Cold Drink here.

Area 2

Another open area similar to the previous one, BUllfango, Melynx and Ceanataur are common here, you can see lava flowing on stone, near the entrance to Area 3, the other path leads to Area 10, you don't need a Cold Drink here.

Area 3

A volcanic cave frequented by Ceanataur, from here on you'll need a Cold Drink to prevent the heat from draining your health, there are paths leading to Areas 4, 5, 7 and back to 2.

Area 4

A large open volcanic cave, during the night the rising lava makes this open area into a stretched zig-zag, you may see some Ceanataur, Vespoid or Apceros here, along with Large Monsters such as Rajang and Gravios.

Area 5

Another open volcanic cave, several mining points can be found here, commonly inhabited by Vespoid, Large Monsters may come here.

Area 6

A crescent-shaped area, some mining spots can be found here, the road to Area 8 is only available during the day, in the night volcanic rock will block the path.

Area 7

A stone pathway in a river of lava, during the day it has a circular shape with an inaccessible center, during the night a portion is covered by lava, making it into a crescent shape.

Area 8

A small clifftop with some mining points, inaccessible during night, you can jump off to Area 7.

Area 9

A area that opens to a large body of lava, from where Lavasioth jumps out, some Ceanataur may be seen.

Area 10

Similar to Area 9, this place is meant to be for Lavasioth hunts, Ceanataur can also appear here.

Secret Area

There is a 3% chance of landing here (only in High-rank or G Lvl missions). There is a mining spot, so bring Pickaxes, but beware of the Bullfango. Located between Areas 5 and 6, connected to Area 6.
