How to Beat Barioth

Barioth Tips
Check Icon Bring Fire Element Weapons

Check Icon Blunt Weapons are Recommended

Check Icon Bring Nulberries

Check Icon Prioritize Barioth's Forelegs and Tail

Check Icon Remember to Stay Mobile

Bring Fire Element Weapons

MH Rise - Bring Fire Element Weapons
Barioth is most vulnerable to the Fire element. Bring weapons with this particular element to take advantage of its weakness and make the fight less challenging.

Blunt Weapons are Recommended

MH Rise - Blunt Weapons are Recommended
In addition to the Fire element, Barioth is also generally weaker to blunt damage. Due to this, we recommend bringing Hammers, Hunting Horns, and other weapons with blunt damage moves when fighting Barioth.

Bring Nulberries

MH Rise - Bring Nulberries

Barioth's Ice Breath Twister and Tail Whip inflict Iceblight on anyone they hit, drastically slowing their Wirebug regeneration. You can negate this effect using Nulberries so make sure you bring a full stack into the hunt!

Prioritize Barioth's Forelegs and Tail

Foreleg Break
MH Rise - Barioth
Tail Sever
MH Rise - Barioth

To mitigate Barioth's mobility and weaken some of its attacks, prioritize breaking Barioth's forelegs and tail. Breaking its forelegs can cause Barioth to slip off-balance after performing any of its Leap Attacks, while severing its tail reduces the effective range of its Tail Whip.

Remember to Stay Mobile

MH Rise Sunbreak - Remember to Stay Mobile
Barioth is a fast monster and can easily reach far away hunters with its Leap Attacks and Ice Breath. Prepare to evade or guard at all times and avoid overcommitting attacks to prevent yourself from being overwhelmed by this monster.

Barioth Master Rank Attack Patterns

In addition to its attacks in Low and High Rank quests, Barioth uses the following new attack in Master Rank.

Name Description
Tail Slam and Sweep Combo Barioth leaps forward, slamming its tail on top of the hunter before forcefully sweeping it aside.

Tail Slam and Sweep Combo

Tail Slam and Sweep Combo Attack Information
MH Rise Sunbreak - Barioth Tail Slam and Sweep Combo
Tail Slam and Sweep Combo: Barioth leaps forward, slamming its tail on top of the hunter before forcefully sweeping it aside, hitting a wide area.

The initial tail slam tracks the hunter and also covers a surprising amount of distance, so prepare to dodge at the last moment or dive-evade to avoid getting hit.

Barioth General Attack Patterns

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

Name Description
Ice Breath Twister Barioth unleashes an icy breath that turns into a freezing twister on impact towards its target.
Leap Attack Barioth dives towards the hunter's position, tackling them with its heavy body. This attack has several variations.
Claw Swipe Barioth swipes at its target with its massive claws, dealing heavy damage and potentially knocking them down.
Shoulder Check Barioth performs a quick shoulder tackle, knocking away hunters that get too close.
Tail Whip Barioth whips its tail towards the front of its head from its left or right side.
Airborne Combo Barioth performs an aerial Ice Breath Twister before diving towards the ground to perform a spinning body slam.

Ice Breath Twister

Ice Breath Twister Attack Information
MH Rise Sunbreak - Barioth Ice Breath Twister
Ice Breath Twister: Barioth unleashes an icy breath that turns into a freezing twister on impact towards its target. When hit by this attack, hunters become coated in Iceblight, a negative status effect that slows Wirebug regeneration tremendously.

Leaping Attacks

Barioth is an extremely mobile monster that can attack hunters from any angle and distance. Its leap attacks are arguably on par, if not better, than Nargacuga's. There are four variations of this attack.

Leap Attack Information
MH Rise - Barioth
Running Leap Attack: The most basic variation of its leap attacks, Barioth performs a short hop before committing to a large leap towards the hunter.
MH Rise - Barioth
Hop Attack: Barioth quickly hops forward, lunging towards the hunter. Barioth often uses this attack when hunters stick too close to it.
MH Rise - Barioth
Reckless Dive: Barioth curls up before rapidly diving towards the hunter, dealing heavy damage on contact. This variation covers the most distance and can be used consecutively depending on the state of Barioth's forelegs.

IMPORTANT: Barioth can slip off-balance after performing this attack if at least one of its forelegs is broken.
MH Rise - Barioth
Leap Slam: Barioth targets a hunter and performs a high leap before slamming back to the ground on top of them, dealing heavy damage and knocking down the target if it connects. This variation deals the most damage.

IMPORTANT: You can evade this attack using a well-timed dodge. Stay on the move and wait for Barioth to leap upward before dodging.

Claw Swipe

Claw Swipe Attack Information
MH Rise - Barioth
Claw Swipe: Barioth swipes at its target with its massive claws, dealing heavy damage and potentially knocking them down.

Shoulder Check

Shoulder Check Attack Information
MH Rise Sunbreak - Barioth Shoulder Check
Shoulder Check: Barioth uses its massive size and arm spikes to shoulder tackle any hunters attacking from its sides, dealing heavy damage on contact and knocking hunters away. This attack has a large hitbox, so make sure to time your dodges well or prepare to block!

Tail Whip

Tail Whip Attack Information
MH Rise - Barioth
Tail Whip: Like Nargacuga, Barioth can whip its tail towards the front of its head from its left or right side. This attack can inflict Iceblight and knocks its target backward if it connects.

Airborne Combo

Airborne Combo Attack Information
MH Rise Sunbreak - Barioth Airborne Combo
Airborne Combo: Barioth performs an aerial Ice Breath Twister before diving towards the ground with a spinning body slam, smothering a large area with its body and dealing heavy damage on contact.

Barioth's spinning body slam turns its entire body into a hitbox, so don't hesitate to perform a dive-evade when caught in the path of this attack! In addition, If you're quick enough, you can flash Barioth out of the sky by using a Flash Bomb before it performs the combo.
