Bring Thunder and Dragon Element Weapons
Keep Cleansers on Hand
Prioritize Attacking Mizutsune's Head
Stay Near Mizutsune's Sides
Use Wirebugs to Avoid Water Breath Attacks
Mizutsune is most vulnerable to Thunder and Dragon. Bring weapons with these particular elements to take advantage of its weaknesses and make the fight less challenging.
Mizutsune can inflict Bubbleblight on hunters with its multiple bubble attacks. While the first stack of Bubbleblight can be beneficial as it increases your evasive capabilities, a second stack causes you to begin slipping and sliding when you move around, leaving you vulnerable to Mizutsune's attacks.
Cleansers can quickly remove Bubbleblight from the hunter, so don't forget to bring a stack with you whenever you decide to hunt a Mizutsune.
Mizutsune's primary weak point is its head, so prioritize dealing damage to it as often as possible. You can also break Mizutsune's head twice, increasing the chances of extra monster material drops after completing the hunt.
When not dealing damage to Mizutsune's head, staying near its sides makes it easier to react to and avoid most of its attacks, letting you spend more time dealing damage instead of dodging.
Mizutsune has an array of water breath attacks that sweep across a large area on the ground. We suggest using Wiredash to move out of these attacks' line of fire and close the distance with Mizutsune.
In addition to its attacks in Low and High Rank quests, Mizutsune uses the following attacks in Master Rank.
|Sweeping Tail Slam Combo||Mizutsune sweeps its tail around before performing a flipping tail slam.|
Lunging Water Breath Combo
|Mizutsune rapidly lunges towards the hunter before turning around to spray them with its water breath.|
|Sweeping Tail Slam Combo Attack Information|
Sweeping Tail Slam Combo: Mizutsune sweeps its tail around before performing a backflip to slam its tail on top of the hunter.

Up and Around Combo: Mizutsune shoots its water breath upwards before sweeping it across from one side to the other. Evade away from Mizutsune's front to dodge the first attack, then perform a Wiredash or dive-evade to avoid the sweeping water breath.
Sliding Water Breath: Mizutsune quickly jumps away from the hunter. Afterward, it releases its water breath while sliding towards the hunter, sweeping it over a large area.
