Monster Hunter: World guide: gourmet shroomcaps location guide (Fungal Flexin’ in the Ancient Forest)

How to find a “Unique Mushroom Colony”

Trying to finish the Fungal Flexin’ in the Ancient Forest quest in Monster Hunter: World? We’ll show you how to find the gourmet shroomcaps.

  1. Go to area 4, which is in the southeast of the Ancient Forest.
  2. Collect the pink mushrooms. (You may see a pink question mark on your map that reads “Unique Mushroom Colony, a location in the Ancient Forest to gather special items.” That’s your destination.)
  3. Gather the pink mushrooms labeled “Unique Mushroom Colony.” (You’ll need to do this more than once.)
  4. Travel north to area 5 to collect the final mushrooms.

That’s it. Check out the video above to see the quest in action.

Polygon’s coverage doesn’t stop here. Monster Hunter: World is not a game that will hold your hand. Some things, like main mission quests, are impossible to ignore. But so much else, from managing your items with your pouch and item box to upgrading your armor to the unspoken loop that informs what you should do next, aren’t obvious, particularly for players new to the franchise who can learn a ton in our Monster Hunter: World beginner’s guide.

Enter Polygon’s Monster Hunter: World guides. We’re here to help you understand Capcom’s game, in part because it isn’t always terribly concerned with explaining itself. Check out the guides in the tables of contents above to make your journey through the New World a lot less confusing.
