Hunting Tips
・Arzuros love honey so much that they may steal any you might be carrying and start to eat it on the spot, leaving them vulnerable. Carry around a stash of honey to exploit their sweet tooth.

Arzuros Attack Patterns

Name Description
Triple Claw Swipes Consecutive claw swipe attacks
Cross Claws Strike A claw swipe attack that crosses together
Charging Bear A reckless charging tackle attack on all fours
Hug and Toss A lethal bear hug and toss
Full-Body Slam A brutal body slam with no remorse

Triple Claw Swipes

Monster Hunter Rise (Arzuros) - Consecutive Claw Attacks.gif

Arzuros will stand up on its hind legs and assume a bipedal position. It will then proceed to swipe the ground directly in front of it in a brutish swinging motion. Dodging this attack is easy as it is very deliberate and slow, added that it is very obvious to spot as well.

Cross Claws Strike

Monster Hunter Rise (Arzuros) - Swipe Attack.gif

The Arzuros stands up on its hind legs and dives downward in the direction of the hunter. It will then unleash a swipe attack using both of its claws, meeting in the middle. If you are quick enough, you can dodge roll backward since there is only a certain range when this attack is effective.

Charging Bear

Charging Bear.gif

Arzuros will charge at the hunter and run over the hunter with reckless abandon. Easy enough to dodge as Arzuros goes in a singular direction but changes its course to follow the hunter. Even if it hits the hunter, it will continue charging until it tires itself out. You can also stop this charge by throwing a Flash Bomb, stunning the Arzuros mid-charge.

Hug and Toss

Monster Hunter Rise (Arzuros) - Arzuros GrabGrab Attack.gif

The Arzuros uses its body to pin the hunter down and then grab them in a lethal bear hug. After shaking the hunter like a rattle, Arzuros will then toss the hunter up in the air. Use the wirebug to escape and if a fellow hunter is grabbed, you can aid him by stunning the monster via various means (flash bombs, traps, etc.)

Full-Body Slam

Monster Hunter Rise (Arzuros) - Tackle Attack.gif

A slightly hard-to-dodge move from the Arzuros. It doesn't have an obvious indicator if it will be used and can be used to attack sideways. Stay vigilant to avoid getting hit as it not only send you flying up but leaves you stunned as you land on the ground.

Its Tackle Can Cart You Easily

Monster Hunter Rise (Arzuros) - Arzuros Tackle

Arzuros' tackle has a deceptively large hitbox so try avoiding it by using wirebugs! A very powerful attack in its own right that lacks finesse but makes up for in brute force.

Rear Weakpoint

Monster Hunter Rise (Arzuros) - Behind Weakpoint.gif

Arzuros takes a great amount of damage when attacked from the rear! Be careful though because its full-body slam has no tells and can catch you off guard!

Very Easy to Put Into a Mountable State

Monster Hunter Rise (Arzuros) - Easy to Ride.png

Arzuros is observed to be more susceptible to mounting compared to other monsters. It likes interrupting the hunter if it is fighting another large monster, oftentimes instigating Turf Wars against other Large Monsters in the Shrine Ruins. Take advantage of this to practice Wyvern Riding and deal massive damage on the monster you are hunting.

Keep a Honey Handy

Monster Hunter Rise (Arzuros) - Arzuros Loves Honey

Arzuros loves honey! During its grab attack, the hunter can use Honey to escape - similar to how Dung Bombs are used to escape Deviljho's Feast attack!

      Each upgrade level adds 2 points to defense. Depending on rarity the armor will have different levels to max up to. Take the total levels minus one and multiply by 2 to get the total defense plus what the armor started with.

    • Thunder God's Armor
