Note: Not all gathering areas shown on the map will be there when you enter. Gathering areas are randomly selected and after using one up, it might respawn after ten minutes or so.
Welcome to Frozen Seaway , the area which holds the award for best battle music (okay maybe I'm just a bit biased). This place, unlike the Arctic Ridge, hugs the ocean coast and so several areas are not land, but thick, sturdy ice that safeguards you from the violent ocean beneath. Some of the monsters here will burrow through the ice between the ice and the water, so watch out!
Areas 3 and 9 do not have multiple levels, but they are on pretty severe slopes, so be careful of how the camera or your range might get messy due to the elevation change. Gunners especially should be aware of how the slope can cause your aim to go awry.
Be sure to bring Hot Drinks!
