Tending to stand on one leg, this monster somewhat resembles an umbrella. The Aknosom is highly territorial; it will spread out its wings and show off its characteristic comb to scare off threats. It also bears flammable venom that burns fiercely and lingers on the ground when lit. Draw the beast to water for an easier fight.

Beak Slam

Fireball Frenzy

Reckless Tackle

Monster Hunter Rise (Aknosom) - Head Rush.gif

Aknosom has a rush attack that can send hunters flying. This is pretty easy to telegraph because Aknosom will bow down before executing the rush attack so this is a fairly easy attack to avoid. When this attack misses, Aknosom will be immobile for a while so use this chance to attack the monster!

Wing Swing

Aknosom will spread its wings and perform a heavy attack! Be wary of the initial movement before it executes the attack and reacts accordingly. In addition, Aknosom will do this move twice when agitated so be careful!

Back Kick

Aknosom raises one foot off the ground and jumps closer to the hunter. It guards its head as it does a back kick, maximizing defense while going offense. This kick can knock you off your feet, so stay vigilant!
