Shiny Gold Helmcrab

Shiny Gold Helmcrab in the Private Suite
Location Caverns of El Dorado
Type Terrestrial

Shiny Gold Helmcrab is an Endemic Life creature in Monster Hunter World (MHW). These animals and insects are found out in the field, and can be captured by dedicated Hunters looking to research the New World.


This little one isn't too different from your regular Gold Helmcrab, but it's a lot shinier. Guess it hoarded more grub for itself?

Shiny Gold Helmcrab Location

You can find Shiny Gold Helmcrab in:

  • Caverns of El Dorado, Sector 1 and Sector 2

 The Shiny Gold Helmcrab will sometimes spawn near the Fire Herb in the top-left corner of Sector 1, out on the sunlit rocks. It will also spawn in Sector 2 in the sunlit patch on the rocks above the lava fissure. Unlike the standard Gold Helmcrab, this creature is almost completely covered in gold and is extremely noticeable in the sunlight.

Shiny Gold Helmcrab Capturing Rewards

You can capture Shiny Gold Helmcrab by using the Fixed Item Capture Net, equip it via pushing Square/X when highlighting it, then use L2/LT to aim and R2/R2 throw the net at the creature.

  • House placing: Carpet, Floor, Hearth, Garden
  • Other rewards: 120 RP
