How to Beat Barroth

Barroth Tips
Check Icon Avoid Hitting Barroth's Head

Check Icon Focus on Barroth's Forelegs, Hind Legs, and Tail

Check Icon Be Wary of Mud Piles

Check Icon Vulnerable While Rolling in Mud

Check Icon Use Mudbeetles to Soften Hide

Check Icon Bring Nulberries

Avoid Hitting Barroth's Head

MH Rise - Avoid Hitting Barroth

Unless you are aiming to break Barroth's head with a blunt weapon like the Hammer, you should avoid attacking Barroth's head. Barroth's head is extremely durable and can easily deflect most attacks, so prioritize dealing damage to its other body parts instead.

Focus on Barroth's Forelegs, Hind Legs, and Tail

MH Rise Sunbreak - Focus on Barroth

Barroth's forelegs and tail are its primary weak points, so prioritize dealing damage to these body parts as often as possible. If these parts are hard to reach, focus on attacking Barroth's hind legs instead.

Be Wary of Mud Piles

MH Rise Sunbreak - Be Wary of Mud Piles

Some of Barroth's attacks produce mud piles that persist for a few seconds. These plies of mud can be deadly obstacles as they hinder movement. Be mindful of your positioning and avoid these mud piles as much as possible.

Vulnerable While Rolling in Mud

MH Rise - Vulnerable While Rolling in Mud

During the hunt, Barroth sometimes moves towards wet areas to cover itself in mud by rolling around on the ground. While this happens, Barroth is completely vulnerable, so take advantage of this opening by dealing as much damage as possible to the monster.

Use Mudbeetles to Soften Hide

MH Rise Sunbreak - Use Mudbeetles to Soften Hide

Mudbeetles are particularly effective against Barroth as they inflict Waterblight, which softens Barroth's hide and completely negates its mud armor. Pick up and use these Endemic Life to your advantage whenever possible!

Bring Nulberries

MH Rise - Bring Nulberries

Barroth's mud piles can inflict Waterblight on impact, which slows down stamina recovery. Negate this potentially deadly status ailment by bringing Nulberries to the hunt.

You can also check your base camp's Supply Box at the start of the hunt for any free Nulberries.
