How to Make Large Monsters Sleep

Methods for Applying Sleep to Monsters

Use Sleep Weapons

MH Rise - Somnacanth Frilled Claw I Dual Blades

Equipping weapons with sleep status ailments is the most straightforward way to inflict sleep against large monsters. Just keep hitting them until the sleep ailment affects them! Sleep Ammo is also a good choice as all shots are guaranteed to cause buildup.

There's a hidden stat that slowly fills up every time you hit a monster with a sleep weapon. Once this stat goes past a threshold, the target monster will fall asleep.

Dual Blades, Bows, and Sword and Shields are particularly effective weapons for inflicting ailments against monsters!

Make the Monster Reach Critical HP

Enemies that take enough damage will try to rest. This is usually signalled with the a blue icon on the monster on the map or when your Palico mentions that it is ripe for capture.

Most monsters that are on critical HP will look for a safe place to rest. While resting, their HP quickly recovers so it is necessary to track the monster as soon as you can to finish the hunt or capture it for better loot!

How to Capture Monsters and Benefits

Use a Monster's Sleep-based Mounted Punisher

MH Rise - Riding a Great Baggi

Some monsters such as the Great Baggi and Somnacanth can apply sleep in their finishing move when Mounted Punisher is executed.

Use Drugged Meat

MH Rise - Drugged Meat

Drugged Meat is an item that you can leave on the ground during hunts. Monsters that eat the meat will fall asleep but they will only do so when fatigued and unalarmed.
