Level Up Your Stronghold

Stronghold Level Up.jpeg

At the beginning of a Rampage quest, you'll be limited to using the weakest Hunting Installations. However, by leveling up your Stronghold, you'll gain access to more and stronger weapons and items. As the difficulty increases you'll begin to struggle if you don't use stronger weapons so focus on leveling up as much as you can.

How to level up your stronghold

Defeat monsters
Complete sub assignments
Afflict monsters with Statuses/Blights

Prioritize Targeters and Gate Crashers

Flying Monsters.jpeg

Out of the 3 different types of monsters that can appear, Targeters and Gate Crashers are the most dangerous. Targeters take to the skies and fire on you with long range attacks, causing you trouble while firing from Hunting Installations. Gate Crashers typically ignore everything around them and head straight for the nearest gate, as their name suggests, and attempt to tear it down. Ignoring a Gate Crasher can be the end of a Rampage Quest if you aren't careful.

Target them with Retreat Shots or Piercing Shots to slow them down. Targeters are especially weak to Crag Shots to the head that will knock them out of the sky. Do your best to aim for the head and send them running

Dragonators and Splitting Wyvernshot Reload Over Time

Dragonators and Splitting Wyvernshots may seem like they can only be used once, but they actually just have a lengthy reload time. This can be sped up by using a Power Kiln so you can fire them off more frequently. You'll have time in between waves so depending on when you use the Power Kiln, the Dragonators or Splitting Wyvernshots may be finished reloading by the time the next wave starts.

Make Use of Limited Warriors of Kamura


Warriors of Kamura are strong enough to turn the tide of battle just by summoning them. However, some of the warriors like Yomogi can only be summoned during the wave they first appeared in, so you should be sure to use them immediately or risk wasting them.

Ring the Counter Gong in a Pinch

When ringing the Counter Gong, you'll gain the effects of the Counter Signal which will increase your attack power, as well as monsters attack power while riding them. If you find yourself cornered by a group of monsters, considering ringing the Counter Gong and going to town on them.

Wyvern Riding is Possible

Rampage Wyvern Riding.jpeg

Even during Rampage Quests Wyvern Riding is possible. While riding a monster you'll be able to inflict statuses or blights depending on the monster, so monsters like Rathian, Rathalos, or Pukei-Pukei are recommended.

Riding Under the Counter Signal Effects is Stronger

Under the effects of the Counter Signal, Wyvern Riding is far more powerful. In some situations you may be better off fighting on your own, but being able to deal damage without the danger of taking damage is always a plus.

Don't Forget to Carve the Major Threat Monster


Monsters that appear during waves will run away before they fall so they can't be carved, but the Major Threat monsters that appears at the end of the final wave can be both hunted and carved. Some of the monsters that appear are stronger types that can be dealt with more easily in Rampage Quests, so be sure to strip them of all they have before leaving.

Play Online If You Can

As Rampage Quests are like Tower Defense games, the more people there are the easier they get. On top of that, during Rampage Quests 3 player deaths won't fail the quest, so you don't have to worry too much about messing up. If you're paying for Nintendo Online you should give it a go!

Limited Hunting Installations (Warriors of Kamura)

Charges up a strong slash and strikes nearby enemies for massive damage. Can be used until the end of the rampage so try to use it against the Rampage's major threat to greatly deal damage to it for free.

Buddy Handler Iori

Causes an explosion that causes blights to enemies. Useful for the blight requirement sub-quest if both appears in a rampage. Only usable on the wave he appears at.

Hinoa and Minoto

Attacks enemies using a Lance and a Bow. They can deal decent AOE damage but they are only usable on the wave they appear at.

Master Utsushi

Damages all monsters nearby and makes them rideable. Mostly appears on the Apex wave. It's suggested to use Master Utsushi when the Apex monster appears and it summons a horde so you can ride a monster and deal damage to the Apex monster without being at risk yourself!

Chef Yomogi

Uses a Machine Cannon and repeatedly attacks enemies. While summoned, she also improves hunter's hunting capabilities. Increased hunting capabilities has the same effect as a counter gong.

      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
