Rathalos Wing drop rate?!

10 posts in this topic

I seem to be having no luck at all in getting Rathalos to drop his item. What I've been doing: replaying Rathalos / Twilight over and over again, beating him in about a minute each time. I've been using the M47 (rocket launcher) to take him down and it's just really beginning to test my patience now. I thought it would be smooth sailing after I S ranked all of the damn vehicle missions but that has not been the case..

 

For anyone who managed to get the item to drop, does this sound normal? Can you remember how you got him to drop his item? Lethal or non-lethal kill? Any advice/help would be appreciated.

 

As for now, I'm going to stop playing this mission and go back to batting Peace Walker Custom; haven't managed to get it's leg drop for Zeke either.. 😶

If you are lucky, you'll get it without much trouble. If you are unlucky, like the vast majority, you will have to keep replaying that mission. Try and retry, rinse and repeat, you will get the drop eventually.

I guess I'm part of the unlucky group. I've switched up my tactic.. I've been searching all over for the best ways of getting the item to drop and it seems that destroying his tail/wings/head with a lethal weapon and then proceeding to tranquilize him offers the best chance of getting the item to drop. Only time will tell I guess..

You can try that, but it won't make a big difference. Just like you, I guess it took me between 30 something to 50 tries to get the drop. I tried destroying its wings then tranquilize it, destroying all their parts with the M134/M47 plus bandana, etc... Just keep playing and it will drop when you expect it the least. Good luck.

Just over 100 attempts later and the prick finally dropped the item... but now I have a new problem. It's saying I don't have the required staff to develop the item... but I have multiple staff in my Intel unit with the Japanese Patriot skill? My R&D team is at level 99 so there's no issue in that regard.. I guess I'll just go back to grinding mission 49 in hopes that the game registers that I have staff with the skill.. very disheartening.

 

Edit: Wow... turns out I couldn't develop the item because I hadn't any staff in my R&D department with the Japanese Patriot skill.. I had them all in my Intel team 🙃 Panic over!

Yes, the staff needs to be in the right team in order to develop the desired item/weapon.

yeah, I think the highest chance is destroying body part+non-lethal+S-Rank and even then it's luck if it drops or not. I only have 99% weapons because the one in the Pupa base arena never wants to drop the weapon part for 100% xD
