Avoid Hitting the Head

MH Rise - Minimal Damage on Barroth’s Head

Unless your using a Hammer, Gunlance, or Charge Blade, it is recommended that you avoid attacking Barroth's head! Barroth's head is extremely tough and will easily deflect most attacks from almost all weapon types.

Focus on its Hind Legs and Tail

MH Rise - Break Barroth

Barroth's Hind Legs are relatively vulnerable parts as most of its attacks come from either its head or tail. Focus your attacks here to safely chip away at its mud armor.

Anticipate Barroth's Charge Attack

MH Rise - Barroth

Barroth's most dangerous attack is its Charge Attack. This can be easily identified by Barroth's iconic hiss that resembles a train before running over anything in a straight path in front of it.

Always keep an ear out for the hissing sound and get ready to dodge out of the way!

Be Wary of Mud Piles

MH Rise - Barroth

Two of Barroth's attacks produce mud piles that persist for a few seconds. These are potential death traps that temporarily restrain anyone careless enough to get caught in them.

Take note of their locations at all times and reposition yourself accordingly.

Exposed when Rolling in Mud

MH Rise - Barroth Weak while Rolling

In the midst of battle, the Barroth will sometimes leave to find a small oasis or a watery area. Here, the Barroth will roll around for a bit, coating itself in mud. Once this happens, you will have an opening to punish the Barroth and unleash your strongest combos and Silkbind Attacks.

Mudbeetles are Effective Against Barroth

MH Rise - Use Mudbeetles Against Barroth

Mudbeetles are probably the best endemic life you can use against Barroth as its effect can completely negate Barroth's mud armor. Use this to your advantage whenever possible!

Bring Nulberries

MH Rise - Free Nulberries in the Item Box

Barroth's mud piles can inflict Waterblight on anything caught inside them. Always bring a few Nulberries to negate this deadly effect!

Barroth General Attack Patterns

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

Name Description
Head Bash An arsenal of head bash attacks from the Barroth.
Charge Attack Barroth hisses like a locomotive and charges at its target.
Mud Sling Mud so thick, it's like quicksand.
Chomp Barroth wants a nibble off the top.
Double Tail Whip A tail whip so deadly, it's done twice.

Head Bash

Barroth can use its extremely hard head to headbutt anyone or anything in front of it! This particular attack has two possible patterns.

Head Bash Variations
MH Rise - Barroth
Quick Head Slam: Barroth walks a few steps to the front with its head flexed upward. This is followed by a quick frontal slam with its head.
MH Rise - Barroth
Muddy Head Slam: This attack is mostly similar to the Quick Head Slam. The difference with this is that it delays its head slam by around a second before slamming it down with extra force, dealing more damage and leaving a mud pile. This attack is only available in High Rank.

Charge Attack

Charge Attack Information
MH Rise - Charging Barroth Attack
Charge Attack: Barroth hisses like a train, preparing to bulldoze anything in its path.

Mud Sling

Mud Sling Attack Information
MH Rise - Barroth Mud Sling Attack
Mud Sling Attack: When heavily caked in mud, Barroth will sometimes shake some off its body to sling mud piles around it. These mud piles persist for a while and can temporarily restrain anyone within them.

Similarly, somebody parts such as the Head, Tail, and Back of the Barroth can be coated in mud. These body parts and fling mud off and make traps, so it is ideal to hit these parts if coated with mud.


Chomp Attack Information
MH Rise - Barroth Trying to Chomp a Hunter
Chomp: This is Barroth's simplest attack but is often used. Nothing too special about it, just a light chomp at the Barroth's aggressor.

Double Tail Whip

Double Tail Whip Attack Information
MH Rise - Barroth
Double Tail Whip: Barroth can use its tail to attack anyone behind it. This is telegraphed whenever its tail is suddenly flicked upwards, followed by two dipping tail whips from side to side.
