The hardest of all the Buddy Recon Points to reach is here in the familiar Frost Islands. From the high plateau at the northmost point of Area 9, Wirebug up to find a mountain with a single side which can be climbed. From there, you'll find two platforms leading across the gap; Wirebug across, but be careful as you can't climb on the walls here normally. On the second platform, you'll find a shrine with the Buddy Recon Point inside, and Jewel Lilies on the far end.

How to Use Buddy Recon

Set Up from Meowcenaries Menu

Between Quests, you'll need to set up Buddy Recon Points by assigning Buddies to each Map. Talk to Nagi the Buddy Agent in the Market Area of Elgado Outpost to access the Buddy Piazza. From there, select Meowcenaries to find the Buddy Recon option.

1
Select Buddy Recon in the Meowcenaries menu of Buddy Piazza.
2
Select each Map and choose which Recon Point you want to use for that Map, then assign a Buddy to it.

Assign a Buddy to Each Map

Unfortunately, you can only use one of the two Recon Points available on each Map at a time, so choose the one which you find more convenient and switch it out between Quests as you need. Since it's free to assign Buddies and switch Recon Points, go ahead and assign a Buddy to each Map from the start to make sure you always have as many Buddy Recon Points available for use as possible.

The one cost of assigning a Buddy is that it ties up the Buddy, so you can't bring them on Quests. On the upside, since the Level of the Buddy has no effect, you can send your low-level Buddies on Buddy Recon with no penalty, unlike the Argosy or Meowcenaries.

Fast Travel to Buddy Recon Location

MH Rise Sunbreak - Fast Travel to Location

When on a Map where you have Buddy Recon set up, you can fast travel to the Recon Point once per Quest. Note that Buddy Recon is active for all ranks too. Traveling to any Recon Point costs 100 Kamura Points, but it's a small price to pay for an extra fast travel point!
