Platinumfish is one of the rarest types of aquatic animal in Monster Hunter World. It’s quite possible that your first encounter with the species will take place when the grizzled fisherman pulls you to the side and asks you to catch one. Without telling you where to find it. It can be a pretty frustrating affair, and we hope we can help you catch a platinum fish with out Monster Hunter World platinumfish location guide.
Where to find platinum fish in MHW?
After you meet with the Piscine Researcher at Elder’s Recess, travel to sector 8 of the area. The platinumfish can be caught in the crystal-enaces pond next to the camp there, in the eastern part of the sector. If you use Fake Fodder, you’ll notice one fish is always running away from you, instead of heading towards the hook/sinker. That’s the platinum fish. In order to catch it, you’ll need to use proper bait instead of Fake Fodder – we used a Bait Bug.
We suggest you clear out the less important kinds with Fake Fodder – the Goldenfish, Gunpowderfish, Pink Parexuses and such. Once you’re left with only the stubborn one, switch to the more expensive kind of bait and catch it.
