Hunting Tips
・A Mizutsune slicks itself up to do a sliding attack, but its sliding also makes it susceptible to falling over, providing an opening for attack. If you're hit by its bubbles, you can scrub them off by running around and dodging furiously, or using a Cleanser.

Mizutsune Attack Patterns

Name Description
Straight Water Breath Attack Water-breath attack in a straight line
Sliding Water Breath Attack
Moving water-breath attack by sliding using bubbles
Sweeping Water Breath Attack Water-breath attack that sweeps from side-to-side
Rotating Water Breath Attack
A water-breath attack in a circle, sweeps 360°
Bubble Attack Spits multiple bubbles
Big Bubble Attack
Spits one, huge bubble
Tail Slam Attack that slams the tail forward
Jumping Slam Charge attack that jumps and lands while rotating
Full Body Slam Body slam attack using its belly. Mizutsune will usually stand up with front legs before it executes the move.

Water Breath Attack

Monster Hunter Rise (Mizutsune) - Water Breath Attack.gif

Mizutsune will execute a water beam attack that can deal a lot of damage! Take note that there are four ways Mizutsune will execute this:

  • Side-to-Side
  • Straight Line
  • Straight line but sliding side-to-side
  • Circular motion, 360°

Bubble Attacks

Monster Hunter Rise (Mizutsune) - Bubble Attacks.gif

Mizutsune is constantly wreathed in bubbles of various colors each of which have unique effects when popped by hunters.

Bubble Color Effect
Pink Causes Bubbleblight after being hit twice
Green Recovers health
Red Grants an attack booth

Big Bubble Attack

Monster Hunter Rise (Mizutsune) - Big Bubble Attack.gif

Aside from the usual bubble attacks, Mizutsune will also charge and blow a huge bubble that is very difficult to evade! Use Wirebugs to execute a faster evade especially if you are near Mizutsune!

Tail Slam

Monster Hunter Rise (Mizutsune) - Tail Slam.gif

This is the Mizutsune's bread-and-butter move. This is a very fast move especially when Mizutsune is enraged so be careful!

Jumping Slam

Monster Hunter Rise (Mizutsune) - Jumping Slam.gif

This attack is the most dangerous of all! Mizutsune usually does this when enraged and it can catch hunters off guard. Mizutsune will jump up and land while rotating, creating bubbles in the process. This can cart most hunters unaware of the tells so be mindful!

Full Body Slam

Monster Hunter Rise (Mizutsune) - Full Body Slam.gif

This is an attack that is frequently executed by Mizutsune and can be telegraphed properly. Whenever Mizutsune raises its head and stands up half-way with its rear legs, prepare for a body slam attack! This has a huge hitbox so try evading very far whenever you see the tells.

How to Beat Mizutsune

Keep a Cleanser Handy

Monster Hunter Rise (Mizutsune) - Use Cleanser

When you really cannot handle the Bubble, keep a Cleanser handy! Whenever you see that bubbles are accumulating on your hunter and you find it hard to maneuver, use it!

Throwing Kunai Can Pop Bubbles

Monster Hunter Rise (Mizutsune) - Throwing Kunai Can Pop Bubbles.gif

Though we do not recommend it, you can use Throwing Kunai to pop the bubbles Mizutsune creates. The throwing kunai are infinite too so do not worry about running out!

However, we recommend dodging and walking away from them though as popping them manually can distract you from Mizutsune's attacks.

Prioritize Head Attacks

Monster Hunter Rise (Mizutsune) - Prioritize Head Attacks.png

Mizutsune is weakest on its head so try targeting it as much as possible. The head can be broken twice as well so more monster material drops after the hunt!

Attack Opportunity After Roars!

Monster Hunter Rise (Mizutsune) - After Roar

Mizutsune will be open for attacks after every roar. Most silkbind attacks have counterattack capabilities so use this to get free hits! Be warned though, most of these counterattack silkbind moves cost 2 wirebugs so make it count!

Side and Hind Legs Are the Safest Parts

Monster Hunter Rise (Mizutsune) - Side and Hind Legs Are the Safest Parts.png

For Mizutsune in general, you'd want to hit the head but should you need to play safe for the time being (eg. when Mizutsune is angry), stay near its side and hind legs. The damage to Mizutsune will not be as great as when hit in the head but it will be safer.

Wirebug to Dodge the Water-Breath Attack

Monster Hunter Rise (Mizutsune) - Wirebug to Dodge the Water-Breath Attack.gif

When Mizutsune is about to unleash a straight-line water-breath attack, it is easy to evade to the side. The problem lies when it does a side-to-side water-breath attack so use a wirebug when it does. Time it properly so you can safely cross to the safe zone when it sweeps!

If you are out of wirebug charges then an emergency evade will also suffice. To execute an Emergency Evade, sprint away from the monster and dodge by pressing B!

If you are hit by the water-breath attack, you will be afflicted by Waterblight. This will greatly increase your stamina consumption so be wary of this status effect. You may use a Nulberry to nullify this or use a Wiredash to dry yourself off.

Use Thunder Element Weapons

Monster Hunter Rise (Rathian) - Thunder Weapon.png

Mizutsune is weak against the Thunder element so use a weapon that has the same element. Moreover, monsters affected by Thunderblight will be more susceptible to stun even without using blunt weapons!
