One of the optional side quests within Monster Hunter World Iceborne is the Research Requests. This requires you to take photos of different Palico moggies doing all sorts of different things, one of which is ordering a group of their own.
Each quest comes with its own requirements and there are 20 in total, some of which are locked out until you perform certain requirements.
In order to activate this you need to firstly speak to the Lyrian Researcher in Seliana, he will tell you about the research and will also give you a Surveyor Set, which is used to take photos of the moggies doing whatever it is they do.
Once you think you have a good enough photo you will need to return to the Researcher in order to hand it in he can be a pain at times, I now like to call him ‘Awkward Blighter’ as he has some serious issues with perfection. You will probably learn of this too if you intend to go for the Gold Rewards.
Gold Rewards however are not mandatory and you can simply pass with a mere Bronze if you so wish to. However, my guides are focused on getting that perfect shot and claiming the all mighty Gold.
Capture as large as possible = Means mainly just capture the moggy, not the environment. The more of the moggy you get and less of everything else the better basically.
1 Subject: Front = The moggy needs to be facing the camera.
REQUEST 4) Under a Chilly Wet Roof
* Capture as large as possible
* 2 Subject: Front
* A trendy Grimalkyne with a leaf umbrella
GOLD: SublimeFirst Wyverian Print
SILVER: Golden Egg
BRONZE: 2000 points
This one requires you to first get the Bugtrappers to level 6, to do this simply head to them on the map (they should be marked). Your Palico will befriend them and then you can go and fight whatever, keep repeating this to level them up.
After doing so, you can then accept this task. It is quite simple or at least it was for me. You will want to head for the area marked on the map in the picture below and off in the distance you should see the cats cowering under the rain with a leaf umbrella.
