A Rakna-Kadaki is usually seen covered in sticky webbing. Clinging to its abdomen are its offspring, known as Rachnoid, which it controls using the flammable gas that builds up there. Rachnoid spit fire, capture prey, and support the Rakna-Kadaki's massive body. As their numbers dwindle, the beast will hatch more, at which point it is extremely dangerous.

Hunting Tips

・It moves quickly by tethering webs to its offspring, but a strike timed well enough to sever these threads will cause the Rakna-Kadaki to lose its balance and provide you an opening. If, however, you become entangled in its web and roasted by its flames, expect to take a significant amount of damage.

Head Lunge

Sharpclaw Attacks

Monster Hunter Rise (Rakna-Kadaki) - Hanging Gigantic Flamethrower.gif

Rakna-Kadaki will spray fire in various directions while moving though out the fight. This attack has an easy telegraph so once you see the red mist all hunters should sprint, dodge or wirebug their way to safety.

Rakna-Kadaki can immediately transition to this attack whenever someone gets snagged on a web trap.

It is important to note that this attack flings Web Traps around the attack area.

Rachnoid-Based Moves and Attacks

Monster Hunter Rise (Rakna-Kadaki) - Rachnoid Attack.gif

Rakna-Kadaki nests a group of Rachnoids on its Abdomen. These little critters aid Rakna-Kadaki in a series of moves and attacks, making the hunt even more dangerous.

Rachnoid-Based Moves and Attack Patterns

How to Beat Rakna-Kadaki

Bring Cleanser

Monster Hunter Rise (Rakna-Kadaki) - Bring Cleanser.gif

Rakna-Kadaki's Head Lunge, Web Spray, and Web Traps inflict the Webbed status to anyone it hits. This particular status disables hunters momentarily and opens them up for more dangerous attacks from the monster!

Fortunately, Cleansers easily and quickly remove this status — Make sure you bring a full stack before heading into the hunt!

Remove the Webbing

Monster Hunter Rise (Rakna-Kadaki) - Remove the Webbing.gif

Sometimes the best way to hunt a monster is to take the fight to it! Maintain the offensive throughout the fight to slowly chip away at its webbing.

Once enough damage is dealt, Rakna-Kadaki's webbing will unravel — Exposing all of its parts and disabling certain Flamethrower patterns.

Take Out the Rachnoids

Monster Hunter Rise (Rakna-Kadaki) - Take Out the Rachnoids.png

Removing the Rachnoids on its abdomen will disable its various silk dashing abilities. Keep damaging this particular part until the abdomen is completely exposed, this will make the fight a lot easier.

Use Flash Bombs to Interrupt Rakna-Kadaki's Flamethower

Rakna-Kadaki's Flamethrower attacks are arguably its most dangerous attacks. Always bring Flash Bombs with you to interrupt these attacks at important situations!
