Hunting Tips

・In their supercharged states, Zinogre not only have different attack patterns but also become faster, hit harder, and gain immunity to Shock Traps. Staggering them, however, may knock them out of this state.

Zinogre Attack Patterns

Leg Stomp

MHRise Zinogre Leg Stomp
This is a classic move introduced back when Zinogre was introduced. When uncharged, Zinogre will slam one of its front legs forward with a massive stomp. When Zinogre is charged, however, the stomp will generate electricity - throwing you back while giving you thunderblight.

Summon Lightning!

MHRise Zinogre Summon Lightning
Zinogre will call on the skies with a huge howl and summon lightning from above! Please evade when you can!

Charge Attack

Zinogre will hop backward, and followed by a charge attack towards its target.

Body Slam

Zinogre will jump and throw its whole body onto you. When charged, this generates an AoE lightning effect in the area giving you the thunderblight when you are nearby!

Tailryuken NEW

MHRise Zinogre Tailryuken
This looks like a new move introduced in Monster Hunter Rise (MHRise). Zinogre will perform a somersault tail uppercut which summons electricity that sends you flying in the air! It even feints with a leg stomp, this cheeky dog!

If you have played Iceborne, this move looked similar to Zinogre's tail flip attack that it uses to back off. This time, CAPCOM added in the lightning attack to throw the hunter away instead!

How to Beat Zinogre

Position Beside Zinogre's Forelegs

You are open to the full force of Zinogre's Leg Stomps whenever you position directly in front of it. Always position beside one of its forelegs at all times instead to easily dodge these powerful attacks!

Focus on Zinogre's Back, Forelegs, and Tail

The potency of Zinogre's charged state directly corresponds to the state of its Back, Tail, and Forelegs. Breaking these specific parts will signifcantly reduce the power spike ZInogre acquires during its charged state.

Attack While Zinogre's Charging

Zinogre is vulnerable for a significant amount of time whenever it charges its fur. Take advantage of this and deal as much damage as possible!

      Is April 20 confirmed?? Where’d u get the date

    • >>[2]
      Player list provides all of their equipment information. But honestly that doesn't really matter mid hunt. Don't add DPS trackers. It gets really annoying hunting with someone thats just shouting out the damage numbers all hunt
