These juvenile Gravios are famous for their rock-hard carapaces. They often burrow underground, mimicking rocks and savaging oblivious miners. Because their carapaces are tougher than that of a full-grown Gravios, they'll attack a threat by charging at it. They are also known to emit a poisonous gas.

Hunting Tips

・Its thick, hardened shell is impervious to most attacks, making it tricky to approach, but if you can break its abdominal plating, you should be able to rip off its shell and deal some heavy hits. Attacks that produce heat will soften up the hide and make the job easier.

Basarios Attack Patterns

Burrow Attack

Monster Hunter Rise (Basarios) - Burrow Attack.gif

Like Diablos, Basarios can bury itself underground and come up underneath the hunter. Unlike Diablos, however, Basarios damages you through the trail it creates as well!

Breath Attacks

Monster Hunter Rise (Basarios) - Fire Breath.gif

Basarios can unleash flames from its breath whenever its head is molten. This particular attack has two variations:

Breath Attack Variations
Flame Breath
Monster Hunter Rise (Basarios) - Fire Breath.gif

Basarios unleashes a massive beam of flame from its mouth in a straight line. Avoid this attack at all costs!
Flame Volley
Monster Hunter Rise (Basarios) - Fire Volley.gif

Basarios ejects a series of fireballs towards its target. It is fairly easy to avoid as long as you're not too far away.

Gas Cloud

Monster Hunter Rise (Basarios) - Fire Gas.gif

Basarios ejects a dangerous gas from its underbelly, damaging anyone caught in the attack and applying specific status effects depending on the gas itself.

Click the button below to see all of the gas types:

Gas Cloud Variations
Fire Gas
Monster Hunter Rise (Basarios) - Fire Gas.gif

Basarios releases a red mist from its abdomen before igniting it in a fiery stream. This particular gas attack can have two patterns.
The first pattern is a stationary attack that releases all of the gas in one sitting.
The second pattern is a series of short gas bursts while Basarios moves forward three steps.
Poison Gas
Monster Hunter Rise (Basarios) - Poison Gas.gif

Basarios unleashes a purple mist that inflicts Poison to anyone caught in the attack.
Sleep Gas
Monster Hunter Rise (Basarios ) - Sleep Gas.gif

Basarios releases a blue mist that inflicts Sleep to anyone caught in the attack.

Slow Roll

Monster Hunter Rise (Basarios) - Slow Roll.gif

Basarios postures up before crashing down to the ground in a slow barrel roll. This attack is very easy to avoid due to its slow animation.

Rush Attack

Monster Hunter Rise (Basarios) - Rush Attack.gif

Basarios flexes its wings before running towards its target. Once again, this attack is easy to avoid due to its very slow animation and large telegraph.

Tail Attacks

Monster Hunter Rise (Basarios) - Backwards Tail Sweep.gif

Basarios can use its tail to slap hunters who stay behind it for too long. This attack has two possible patterns:

Tail Attack Patterns
Tail Spin
Monster Hunter Rise (Basarios) - Tail Spin.gif

Basarios spins its tail around for two times, each one swinging its tail 180 degrees.
Backwards Tail Sweep
Monster Hunter Rise (Basarios ) - Backwards Tail Sweep.gif

Basarios steps backwards while slapping its tail diagonally two-to-three times.

Hip Check

Monster Hunter Rise (Basarios) - Hip Check.gif

Basarios flings its massive body sideways, dealing damage launching anyone who lingers on its sides for too long. This attack is surprisingly quick, so be prepared to dodge or block at all times.

How to Beat Basarios

Green Sharpness is Mandatory

Monster Hunter Rise (Basarios) - Green Sharpness is Mandatory.png

Unless you're using a Gunlance, we recommend that you use weapons that have Green Sharpness or higher against Basarios — Anything lesser will be ineffective.

Avoid Hitting the Wings

Monster Hunter Rise (Basarios) - Avoid The Wings.gif

Basarios' wings are incredibly hard and can deflect the attacks of most weapon types regardless of sharpness.

It is recommended that you focus attacks towards the legs, abdomen, lower tail, and head (when it's molten) instead.

Keep an Eye Out for Molten Parts

Monster Hunter Rise (Basarios) - Molten Parts.png

Basario heats up specific body parts to perform various attacks. You can use this to identify which attack Basarios can use through the fight:

Molten Part Possible Attacks
Head & Lower Neck Breath Attacks
Abdomen Fire Gas

Another thing to note is that molten parts are softened, meaning you can dish out maximum damage towards these parts without the fear of bouncing!

Take Advantage of Its Slow Speed

Monster Hunter Rise (Basarios) - Basarios slow speed.gif

Similar to most heavily armored monsters, Basarios suffers from having slow attack animations. Take advantage of this by landing heavy attacks of your own as they play out!

Bring Antidotes and Energy Drinks

Item Effects / How to Get
A cure for poison/venom.
Crafted or bought from the Merchant.
Antidote Herb
Boosts stamina and prevents sleep.
Crafted using Materials.
Nitroshroom + Honey

As previously mentioned, Basarios' Gas Clouds can either inflict Poison or Sleep status ailments. Always bring Antidotes or Herbal Medicines to nullify Poison — Energy Drinks, on the other hand, can negate the Sleep ailment!

Alternatively, you can also check your base camp's Supply Box once you start the hunt for any free Antidotes or Energy Drinks.

Barrel Bombs Interrupt Its Burrow Attack!

Monster Hunter Rise (Basarios) - Interrupting Burrow Attack 2.gif

Basarios' burrow attack can be lured into Large Barrel Bombs. Not only will this damage the Basarios, it will also unburrow it and stun it for a few seconds!

Basarios Materials and Drops

Mine Basarios' Back for Ores!

Monster Hunter Rise (Basarios) - Mining Basarios.gif

You can mine the back of Basarios to obtain various low and high rank Ores. This is only possible once it's in a capturable state — Let basarios flee and submerge into the ground to rest.

      Each upgrade level adds 2 points to defense. Depending on rarity the armor will have different levels to max up to. Take the total levels minus one and multiply by 2 to get the total defense plus what the armor started with.
