Monster Hunter Stories 2 Eggs
Hatch More Eggs & Bottle Cap Locations
Tips: Eggs can be found in Monster Dens that randomly appear in the field. You can only take one egg out of a den, but as long as eggs remain in the nest, you can exchange the one you have for another one. However, remember to stay alert while you are choosing an egg, as a monster may awaken from its slumber or suddenly return home to its nest and attack you. How long you want to stay and deliberate is up to you!
How to hatch more eggs at the same time? Get more Egg Space by getting more Bottle Caps from Everdens. The in-game Monstie collectibles locations for the Eggs and more are described in this detailed video guide.

Rare Monster Dens with Egg Locations
Tips: There are even some rare dens that pop up infrequently where you can get your hands on elusive monster eggs and ones that contain hard-to-find genes. Once you have made it safely out of the Monster Den, bring the egg to the Stables and hatch it to get a new Monstie for your journey!
Genes: The Rite of Channeling is a ritual that allows you to transfer a gene from one Monstie to another. By doing this, you can awaken a new ability in the Monstie receiving the gene, thereby creating your own original Monstie. During the ritual, you can choose which slot you will place the gene in. This gives you the opportunity to enhance your Monsties by awakening new skills and abilities in interesting combinations.
Each Monstie possesses a variety of genes. The color of the gene represents its element and the pattern of the gene represents its attack type. Align three genes of the same color or pattern in a row—either vertically, diagonally, or horizontally—and you will receive a Bingo Bonus. This will grant your Monstie even more power! In this game, you can place a gene in an empty slot, stack a gene atop one of the same type, and even obtain multiple bingo effects using genes of the same color! Boosting skills and obtaining Bingo Bonuses are great ways to strengthen your Monsties!
Channeling examples: By transferring Yian Kut-Ku’s Fireball Gene to a Lagombi, you can give the Lagombi the ability to manipulate fire that it would never have naturally. Or, if you transfer genes from a Glavenus, Gammoth, Mizutsune, and Astalos to an Arzuros, the Arzuros will be able to use the skills of the Fated Four from Monster Hunter Generations! Through the Rite of Channeling, you can create a versatile Monstie that can use Power, Speed, and Technical skills. Or you can upgrade your Monstie’s fire element abilities until it is a fire specialist. Transferring genes allows you to individualize your Monsties, creating ones that nobody else has!
Co-op Quest Rare Eggs: In Co-Op Expedition Quests, you can connect with another Rider from anywhere in the world and explore special areas only accessible via Multiplayer. This is a great way to get your hands on monster eggs. There are multiple nests in each area, which means more chances to acquire rare eggs. You can even get your hands on many eggs during one expedition.
You will need to obtain special in-game Expedition Tickets in order to embark on Co-Op Expedition quests. There are different types of Expedition Tickets, categorized by rarity level. If you use a rare Expedition Ticket, you will be able to obtain harder-to-find eggs.
