Apex Arzuros Guide

This page is about Apex Arzuros, a monster appearing in the Apex Arzuros Rampage Quest in Monster Hunter Rise (MH Rise) for the Nintendo Switch. Read on to learn how to beat Apex Arzuros, Apex Arzuros Health Pool, the best Rampage strategies, and when to use each Rampage Hunting Installations.

General Rampage Tips

Rampage Tips

Before facing Apex Arzuros, you'll have to repel the first wave, second wave, and the early stages of the third wave. Below are some general Rampage tips to keep note of when fighting against enemy hordes.

Knock Down Flyers

Knocking Down Flyers

Flyers are annoying due to the fact that they can attack hunters that are using installations from afar. This makes guarding against their attacks harder since you can't focus your attention on them at all times. By using the Ballista's retreat shot, you can knock flyers down and it'll render them helpless for a long while.

Charge the Cannon's Thunder Shot Before a Wave Starts

The Rampage Cannons.png

An often neglected feature of the cannon is its Thunder Cannon. Most players would spam buttons to keep on firing but the Cannon's thunder shot must be charged to maximize its effectiveness. It can deal around 300+ damage when fully charged and is a great way to get a head start on the first few seconds of a wave.

Use the Machine Cannon's Silkbind Move on Gate Crashers

The Machine cannon's silkbind move is one of the strongest mountable structure you can use. It can deal massive DPS from its gatling shot and it can stop gate crashers from attacking gates by using its silkdbind move. Always have at least 1 of them up at all times!

Don't Use Any Special Installations on the First and Second Waves

The special installations like Yomogi, Elder Fugen, and the twins are scarce and valuable. Avoid using them against normal enemy hordes at all cost!

Prepare Defenses in Both Side of the Map

When an Apex Monster appears, there's a high chance that they'll reach the main gate of the first area and destroy it. To prepare for this, make sure that hunting installations on the other side of the map are prepared as well!

Apex Arzuros Key Notes

Use Master Utsushi to Mount a Monster


Master Utsushi's effect allows you to instantly ride a monster. However, Apex Arzuros himself cannot be mounted. When Apex Arzuros appears, wait for it to summon a horde before using Master Utsushi to get a free ride on a monster!

Elder Fugen Deals Around 4000 Damage to Apex Arzuros

Summoning Elder Fugen only when Apex Arzuros appears is highly recommended. He can deal a massive amount of damage to Apex Arzuros and more damage is always welcome when fighting Apex monsters.

Yomogi Triggers a long Counter Signal


When Yomogi is summoned, she'll grant hunters a buff that increases hunting capabilities. This has the same effects as a Counter Gong so go all out when Yomogi is used!

If Available, Use the Splitting Wyvern Shot

Splitting Wyvernshot

The Splitting Wyvernshot is one of the strongest facility you should be using against Apex Monsters. With one use, you can deal around 7000 damage and if used together with Elder Fugen, you can deal more than 10,000 damage with just two installations.

      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
