Rajang Hunting Tips

MH Rise - Rajang Riding

A Rajang is most dangerous when its arms are powered up, allowing it even to destroy Shock Traps. Attack its tail to remove this effect. In its regular state, it will also avoid Pitfall Traps. It will immediately attack anything that invades its territory, so watch your step.

Check Icon Some Attacks Leave Rajang Open to Counters

Check Icon Be Mindful with Traps

Check Icon Always Save One Wirebug

Check Icon Remember to Stay Mobile

Be Aware of Rajang's Enraged Mode

MH Rise - Rajang
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's fists are incredibly thick while in this state and will deflect most attacks regardless of sharpness.
  • Rajang's attacks are generally faster and deal more damage during this state.
  • Rajang unlocks its Jumping Slam attack while in this state and can combo it with Lunging Grab instead of the usual Lightning Beam attack.

Attack the Tail During Enraged Mode

MH Rise - Attack Rajang
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.

Some Attacks Leave Rajang Open to Counters

MH Rise - Counterattacking Rajang
Even Rajang needs a breather after its flurry of attacks! Some attacks open Rajang up for counterattacks.

Timing your dodges just after it locks onto its 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:

Backstep MH Rise - Rajang
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.
Jumping Slam MH Rise - Rajang
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 MH Rise - Rajang
Lightning Beam's animation is fairly long compared to Rajang's other attacks. Take advantage of this by landing heavy attacks during the animation.

Be Mindful with Traps

MH Rise - Be Mindful with Traps against Rajang
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!

Always Save One Wirebug

MH Rise - Always Have a Wirebug against Rajang
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!

Remember to Stay Mobile

MH Rise Sunbreak - Remember to Stay Mobile Against Rajang
Rajang is a fast monster, and its Enraged State increases its speed and power even further. Hunters should prepare themselves to move or guard at all times as this monster's attacks are quick and wild.
