Arzuros Tips
Check Icon Keep Honey on Hand

Check Icon Steer Clear of Arzuros' Full Body Tackle

Check Icon Focus on Attacking Its Rear

Keep Honey on Hand

MH Rise Sunbreak - Keep Honey on Hand

Arzuros has a particular taste for Honey. If you have this item in your inventory when Arzuros grabs you, it will steal and eat your Honey instead of following up its attack, allowing you to recover and escape.

Bring Honey with you before going on the hunt or obtain some from nearby Gathering Spots to have an easier time fighting Arzuros.

Steer Clear of Arzuros' Full Body Tackle

MH Rise Sunbreak - Steer Clear of Arzuros

Arzuros' Full Body Tackle has a deceptively large hitbox, so steer completely clear of its path whenever it performs this attack. When caught out of position, don't hesitate to dive-evade or use Wiredash to avoid getting hit.

Focus on Attacking Its Rear

MH Rise Sunbreak - Focus on Attacking Its Rear

Arzuros' primary weak point is its rear, so prioritize dealing damage to it as often as possible. However, stay alert for Arzuros' sitting attack as it can catch you off guard if you recklessly attack its rear.
