List of Contents
|Apex Arzuros||Apex Rathian||Apex Mizutsune|
|Apex Rathalos||Apex Diablos||Apex Zinogre|
Apex Arzuros is the first Apex Monster hunters will encounter in the Rampage. Sporting red eyes and black fur, Apex Arzuros is more ferocious than its regular counterpart.
Most of its slam attacks produce a shockwaves that travel a considerable amount of distance, damaging anything they come into contact with.
Apex Rathian is the second confirmed Apex Monster for Monster Hunter Rise. This particular Apex Monster boasts new attacks and the ability to inflict Noxious Poison, making it a deadly foe for anyone who is unprepared!
Apex Mizutsune is arguably one of the most aggressive Apex Monster currently in Monster Hunter Rise due to its deadly ranged attacks and ability to close the distance between it and hunters.
Aside from producing regular bubbles like any Mizutsune, Apex Mizutsune has the ability to produce Apex Bubbles which explode on contact and inflict Hellfireblight.
With the release of Update 2.0, Apex Rathalos joins the roster of Apex Monsters appearing in Monster Hunter Rise (MH Rise).
Apex Rathalos brings fiery vengeance on all Hunters who have wronged it. It boasts stronger and hotter fire breath attacks that can incinerate foes and structures alike.
Together with Apex Rathalos, Apex Diablos also joins the roster of Apex Monsters in Monster Hunter Rise (MH Rise) Update 2.0!
Apex Diablos brings sheer brutality and will never stop for anything in its path while charging. It boasts a stronger physique and more refined horn.
Apex Zinogre is the lone Apex Monster that arrived in Update 3.0 of Monster Hunter Rise (MH Rise)!
Apex Zinogre stomps its legs that summons lightning from above and its yellow sheen is a testament of how much control it has over lightning. Be careful out there!
Apex monsters are a special type of monster that are stronger than their normal monster counterparts. They have a predominantly darker coloration with red eyes and streaks all over their bodies. This reminds us of the Apex monsters in MH4U that served as the endgame monsters!
Apex Monsters can't be captured with Pitfall Traps or Shock Traps, much like Elder Dragons. But unlike Elder Dragons, Apex Monsters have an added restriction of you not being able to Wyvern Ride them.
As soon as they arrive on the battlefield, Apex Monsters wreck havoc to anyone or anything in their way! They are so powerful that they can break installation platforms and walls completely! They also hurt a lot so use Wirebugs to evade effectively!
Apex Monsters appear in specific Rampage Quests in which they are the Major Threat. This means that you have to defend the stronghold against two waves of regular monsters before their arrival.

What is the Rampage?
Aside from hunting them in Rampages, Apex Monsters also appear in their own solo hunt quest. Be careful, these are difficult quests considering you don't have the help of installations in Rampages. The Emergency quests are especially difficult ones, so be extra careful!
