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.

Rakna-Kadaki Tips
Check Icon Bring Cleanser

Check Icon Remove Rakna-Kadaki's Webbing

Check Icon Take Out the Rachnoids

Check Icon Interrupt Flamethower Attacks with Flash Bombs

Bring Cleanser

MH Rise - Bring Cleanser against Rakna-Kadaki
Rakna-Kadaki, being a spider-like monster, has a ton of web-related attacks that can disable hunters and opens them up for more dangerous attacks from the monster. Head Lunge, Web Spray, and Web Traps inflict the Webbed status to anyone it hits.

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

Remove Rakna-Kadaki's Webbing

MH Rise - Remove Rakna-Kadaki
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

MH Rise - Take Out the Rachnoids with Rakna-Kadaki
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.

Interrupt Flamethower Attacks with Flash Bombs

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

Double Flamethrower Lunge

Double Flamethrower Lunge Attack Information
MH Rise Sunbreak - Rakna-Kadaki Double Flamethrower Lunge
Double Flamethrower Lunge: Rakna-Kadaki rears its head back before quickly lunging it forward to spew out a long beam of fire in two different directions. This attack usually occurs after Rakna-Kadaki repositions with a Silk Slide.

Hanging Gigantic Flamethrower: Rakna-Kadaki unleashes a red mist from its body before tethering to the cavern ceiling and unleashing a massive beam of fire.
