Use Fire Weapons

Khezu's main weakness is fire, as such fire elemental attacks will deal the most damage and drastically speed up the hunt.

Don't Overcommit on Attacks

MH Rise - Khezu Discharge Attack

Khezu's electrical discharge can and will fire off quickly and will knock you out of your combo and potentially stun you. Hunter's should be careful when attacking especially when using weapons that have long animations like the Dual Blades.

Use the Earplugs Skill

Khezu roars a lot and hunters will often find their combos and silkbind attacks suddenly interrupted by a piercing Khezu roar. Bringing the Earplugs skill will help mitigate this and sustain damage.

Khezu's Attacks Can Cause Paralysis

MH Rise - Palico and Palamute Helping Hunter from Paralysis

During a paralyzed state the hunter won't be able to move. Have your Palico or Palamute around to snap you out of paralysis quicker.

Khezu General Attack Patterns

Khezu uses the following attacks in Low and High Rank quests.

Name Description
Neck Swing Attack Elongated neck attack that has a long range
Electric Breath Electric attack from the mouth that rushes on the ground
Causes paralysis to hunters

Body Slam Jumps up and slams its whole body to the ground

Neck Swing Attack

Electric Breath

Electric Breath Attack Information
MH Rise - Khezu Electric Breath Attack
Electric Breath: Khezu uses a slow electric breath in a 180-degree arc. It's extremely slow so it'll be fairly easy to dodge but make sure to bring lightning-resistant gear to be safe.

Electric Discharge

Electric Discharge Attack Information

Ceiling Latch

Ceiling Latch Attack Information
MH Rise - Khezu Latching on Ceiling
Ceiling Latch: Khezu can latch on the ceiling to perform an evasive maneuver. It will shoots balls of electricity to paralyze hunters.

The move is easy to dodge, but attacking Khezu will be quite a hassle. Aim to weaken its legs to make it fall or use exhaust coating in your attacks!

Body Slam
