|An Arzuros so mighty, it was crowned an Apex. It is eternally possessed by wrath and terror, possibly due to the myriad wounds that cover its body. Its forelegs are massive, deft removers of any who'd stand in their way. The call of an Apex unleashes its tortured anger on nearby beasts, driving them into a frenzy.|

Reach HR 8 after hunting Apex Arzuros in a Rampage Quest
Once you update to Version 2.0, reach HR 8, and has fought Apex Arzuros in a Rampage at least once, you are now able to take on Apex Arzuros in its own slay quest!
|Jump Smash||Apex Arzuros will jump high in an arc then land on an unsuspecting hunter. This also deals Tremor in an area after it lands!|
|Rock Throw||Apex Arzuros will throw rocks at hunters because of its rage. When angry, it will perform this move twice in a row.|
|Apex Bear Swipes
|Apex Arzuros' ultimate move where it swipe with extreme force. A hunter caught in the attack will be thrown up and followed up with a punch - basically a death combo.|
|All of Apex Arzuros' moves in the Rampage is also present when hunting it in the Hub Quest!|
Apex Arzuros will jump high in an arc then lands on hunters. Any hunters in the center will receive massive damage and those in the landing zone will be stunned due to Tremor. You can easily telegraph this by checking if Apex Arzuros goes down on all fours and while shaking its behind.
This move also has a very large opening when it misses allowing you to attack so try to telegraph this as much as possible.
Apex Arzuros can hurl rocks towards hunters. When Apex Arzuros is angry, it will execute this move twice! This has a pretty large hitbox so guard if you're using a shield, counterattack with moves, or use Emergency Evade!
Apex Arzuros will use its very powerful arms to swipe hunters to the air, up to five (5) times when angry. Anyone caught will be thrown into the air where Apex Arzuros can follow up with a very powerful punch. This can reduce your health to zero so be careful!
If you're caught with one of the swipes, use a Wirefall (zL + B) before the follow-up attack!
Aim for the head and arms
Beware of Apex Arzuros' Roar
Apex Arzuros Cannot be mounted
Traps don't work
Keep one Wirebug for the Apex Bear Swipes
Apex Arzuros has weakness on its heads and arms. For the Normal Arzuros, the weakness is at the rear but Apex Arzuros' rear is extremely hard. We suggest going for the head and the arms!
Apex Arzuros, unlike the normal Arzuros, has a loud roar! Take note whenever it raises both its arms!
Apex Monsters like Apex Arzuros cannot be mounted. Take note of this whenever you try to launch monsters towards it - just go for Mounted Punishers.
Apex monsters know all your tricks from all the hunters it has faced (and survived) before. Both Shock and Pitfall Traps wouldn't work against Apex Arzuros so don't bother carrying and setting one! Flash Bombs work against them though so just invest in those for crowd control!
Subsequently, Apex monsters can't be captured as well. Take note of this when on Apex hunts to not waste resources!
Apex Bear Swipes can one-shot hunters when not mitigated properly. When you see yourself taking one swipe and flying upward, Wirefall (zL + B) away before the follow-up attack!
Knock Down Flyers
Charge the Cannon's Thunder Shot
Use the Machine Cannon's Silkbind Moves
Avoid Using Special Installations at the first waves.
Set Intallations on both Map
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.
Flyers are annoying because 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.
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.
The Machine cannon's silkbind move is one of the strongest mountable structures you can use. It can deal massive DPS from its Gatling shot and it can stop gate crashers from attacking gates by using its silkbind move. Always have at least 1 of them up at all times!
The special installations like Yomogi, Elder Fugen, and the twins are scarce and valuable. Avoid using them against normal enemy hordes at all cost!
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!
Rampage quests are often recommended to be done by multiplayer. In our guide, we'll be approaching the Rampage Quest solo! Learn how to best the Blue Apex with our Apex Arzuros Rampage Quest guide!
|Apex Arzuros Key Notes|
Use Master Utsushi to Mount a Monster
Elder Fugen Deals Around 4000 Damage to Apex Arzuros
Yomogi Triggers a long Counter Signal
If Available, Use the Splitting Wyvern Shot
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!
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.
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!
The Splitting Wyvernshot is one of the strongest facilities 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.
