Be Aware of Rajang's Enraged Mode
Attack the Tail During Enraged Mode
Some Attacks Leave Rajang Open to Counters
Be Mindful with Traps
Always Save One Wirebug
Rajang can enter Enraged Mode whenever its fur glows yellow. The transition to this state is telegraphed by a strong roar, shortly followed by its fists turning red.
Here are a couple of things to note whenever Rajang enter its Enraged Mode:
Rajang can be knocked out of its Enraged Mode by dealing enough damage to its tail. This will also knock down Rajang making it a perfect time to strike.
Even Rajang needs a breather after its flurry of attacks! Some attacks opens Rajang up for counterattacks.
Timing your dodges just after it locks onto the target and positioning appropriately throughout the fight are the keys to efficiently hunting down this fiercesome monster!
Here's a list of attacks with counterattack opportunities:
Rajang can perform a backstep after its Furious Zig-Zag. Positioning at the tip of its trajectory allows you to dish out heavy attacks for free.
Rajang takes a while to recover from its Jumping Slam. Use this to your advantage by dishing out your heavy attacks!
Additionally, weapons such as the Charge Blade, Lance, and Long Sword can use their counterattacks on the slam itself.
Lightning Beam's animation is fairly long compared to Rajang's other attacks. Take advantage of this by landing heavy attacks during the animation.
While it is possible to trap Rajang, It is important to remember that Rajang can break traps when in Enraged Mode. Make sure not to waste any traps by only using them in during its normal state!
Rajang's Lunging Grab is always followed-up with either a Lightning Beam, Fist Slam, or even a Jumping Slam (Only in Enraged Mode).
With this in mind, it is important to always have one wirebug with you at all times to wirefall away from the follow-up attack!
Rajang is a fast monster and its super mode greatly increases its speed and power. Hunters should be prepared to move or guard at all times as attacks are fast and wild.
|Lightning Beam||Rajang fires a lightning beam from its mouth.|
|Jumping Lightning Blast||Rajang jumps into the air and fires a ball of lightning down.|
|Ground Slam||Rajang slams the ground with its fists.|
|Jumping Slam||Rajang jumps up before slamming down on the ground.|
|Fists of Fury||Rajang swings its fists side-to-side.|
|Cannon Ball||Rajang jumps up, curls into a ball, and slams down on the ground.|
|Lunging Grab||Rajang lunges at the hunter. If caught, Rajang slams them down then throws them back.|
|Triple Slam Combo||Rajang slams the ground with its fists thrice.|
|Furious Zig-Zag||Rajang moves towards the hunter in a zig-zag motion.|
|Spinning Fist||Rajang spins towards the hunter.|
|Upheaval||Rajang slams down the ground with extra force, launching anyone in its vicinity into the air.|
Rajang's signature attack is the beam of lightning it fires from its mouth. Rajang can unleash this attack rather quickly so its best to never be directly in its line of sight.
Rajang jumps high into the air and fires a blast of lighting down at its target. When Rajang jumps hunters should prepare to dodge.
Rajang will rear up before slamming its fists down directly in front. The telegraph for this attack is easy to spot so hunters should remain aware.
Rajang will occasionally jump before slamming back to the ground, dealing massive damage to anyone caught in it.
This is telegraphed by a short roar while standing straight on both legs and can only happen while in Enraged Mode.
Rajang will swing its fists wildly in wide arcs while moving forward. This attack has a very wide range and can catch unaware hunters off guard.
Another one of Rajang's jump attacks. It will curl into a ball before crashing down. This attack has an area of effect so be sure to be a good distance away from the impact zone.
Rajang lunges at a hunter. If this attack connects the hunter will be picked up then smashed and thrown across the field. If being thrown doesn't KO the hunter, then a potential follow up Lighting Beam, Fist Slam or Jumping Slam will.
Rajang does three slams on either side with its fists. The third slam is a delayed overhead slam that is more powerful than the first two.
Take note that Rajang can pivot itself before the third slam, which can potential catch anyone directly behind it.
Rajang hops towards its target destination in a zig-zag pattern, dealing damage and tripping anyone caught in it.
It is important to note that Rajang can propel itself backward in a straight line after reaching its destination.
Rajang quickly postures up before spinning towards its target. Anyone caught in this attack suffers high damage and gets knocked down.
Rajang breaks the ground in front of it, dealing damage and launching anyone caught within the area.
