Check Icon Keep Nulberries on Hand

Check Icon Prioritize Attacking Aknosom's Crest and Wings

Check Icon Keep Aknosom in Wet Areas

Check Icon Remember to Stay Mobile

Bring Water or Thunder Element Weapons

MH Rise Sunbreak - Bring Water or Thunder Element Weapons
Aknosom is most vulnerable to Water and Thunder. Bring weapons with these particular elements to take advantage of its weaknesses and make the fight less challenging.

Keep Nulberries on Hand

MH Rise - Keep Nulberries on Hand

Aknosom's fireball attacks can inflict Fireblight, which deals damage over time. Negate this potentially deadly status ailment by bringing Nulberries to the hunt.

You can also check your base camp's Supply Box at the start of the hunt for any free Nulberries.

Prioritize Attacking Aknosom's Crest and Wings

MH Rise Sunbreak - Prioritize Attacking Aknosom

Aknosom's primary weak points are its crested head and wings, so prioritize dealing damage to these body parts as often as possible.

Keep Aknosom in Wet Areas

MH Rise Sunbreak - Keep Aknosom in Wet Areas
Aknosom's fireball attacks tend to bounce and leave lingering flames on the ground. These flames make it difficult to close the distance to Aknosom and also inflict Fireblight on contact.

We recommend moving Aknosom toward wet areas to stop its fireballs from bouncing and causing lingering flames. You can do this by luring it with a Stinkmink or Wyvern Riding the monster towards these locations.

Remember to Stay Mobile

MH Rise Sunbreak - Remember to Stay Mobile Against Aknosom
Aknosom is a fast monster and often chains its attacks one after another. Prepare to evade or guard at all times and avoid overcommitting with attacks to prevent yourself from being overwhelmed by this monster.

Aknosom Master Rank Attack Patterns

Fireball Attack Variations
MH Rise Sunbreak - Aknosom Triple Fireball Spit
Triple Fireball Spit: Aknosom spits out fireballs in three directions, with each projectile bouncing on the ground and leaving a trail of lingering flames. Move away from Aknosom's head as it performs this move to avoid getting hit.

Wing Sweep

Wing Sweep Attack Information

Hopping Pounces: Aknosom performs up to two pounces, dealing moderate damage as it lands on top of the hunter with its clawed legs. Afterward, it performs a delayed jumping Crest Slam, dealing heavy damage and causing nearby hunters to flinch.

Since Aknosom can pounce multiple times before its Crest Slam, watch carefully for the short pause after its final pounce to avoid getting hit.
