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.

Basarios Hunting Tips

MH Rise - Basarios

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.

How to Beat Basarios

Green Sharpness is Mandatory

MH Rise Sunbreak - Basarios Green Sharpness

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

MH Rise -  Avoid Basarios
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

MH Rise Sunbreak - Basarios Molten Part

Basarios 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

MH Rise - Basarios Slow Speed
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

MH Rise Sunbreak - Basarios Energy Drink

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.

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

Barrel Bombs Interrupt Its Burrow Attack!

MH Rise - Interrupting Basarios
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 Master Rank Attack Patterns

In addition to its attacks in Low and High Rank quests, Pukei-Pukei uses the following attacks in Master Rank.

Name Description
Double Roll Basarios ups the ante and rolls twice.
Triple Flame Volley Basarios rapidly spits out three fireballs.

Double Roll

Double Roll Attack Information
MH Rise Sunbreak - Basarios Double Roll
Double Roll: Basarios now rolls twice instead of once when hunting it in Master Rank. If you are on its way, watch out on where you will dodge roll, as you may still end up getting rolled over by Basarios' second roll!

Triple Flame Volley

Triple Flame Volley Attack Information
MH Rise Sunbreak - Basarios Triple Flame Volley
Triple Flame Volley: Basarios spits up three fireballs in succession. The third fireball comes out almost instantaneously.

Keep an eye out on where you will be dodging as the rest of the fireballs may end up at the location where you are heading.

Basarios General Attack Patterns

Basarios uses the following attacks in Low and High Rank quests.

Name Description
Burrow Attack Basarios burrows underground, leaves a trail that will hurt the hunter, and will emerge under the hunter.
Breath Attacks Basarios breathes fire. This attack has two variations.
Gas Cloud Basarios releases a gas cloud, ranging from fire, poison, or sleeping gas.
Slow Roll Basarios rolls towards the hunter.
Rush Attack Basarios charges at the hunter.
Tail Attacks Basarios swings its tail.
Hip Check Basarios uses its hips to charge sideways.

Burrow Attack

Burrow Attack Information
MH Rise - Basarios
Burrow Attack: 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

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

Breath Attack Variations
MH Rise - Basarios
Flame Breath: Basarios unleashes a massive beam of flame from its mouth in a straight line. Avoid this attack at all costs!
MH Rise - Basarios
Flame Volley: 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

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

Gas Cloud Variations
MH Rise - Basarios
Fire Gas: 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.
MH Rise - Basarios
Poison Gas: Basarios unleashes a purple mist that inflicts Poison to anyone caught in the attack.
MH Rise - Basarios
Sleep Gas: Basarios releases a blue mist that inflicts Sleep to anyone caught in the attack.

Slow Roll

Slow Roll Attack Information
MH Rise - Basarios
Slow Roll: 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

Rush Attack Information
MH Rise - Basarios
Rush Attack: 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

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

Tail Attack Variations
MH Rise - Basarios
Tail Spin: Basarios spins its tail around for two times, each one swinging its tail 180 degrees.
MH Rise - Basarios
Backwards Tail Sweep: Basarios steps backwards while slapping its tail diagonally two-to-three times.

Hip Check

Hip Check Attack Information
MH Rise - Basarios
Hip Check: 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.
