Upgrade Your Armor

MH Rise - Bazelgeuse Upgrade Your Armor

Bazelgeuse is going to be tough because it's the first monster you would probably fight post-update. Since Update 2.0 introduced additional armor upgrades, don't forget to upgrade your existing armors to increase their defense before taking on Update 2.0 monsters!

Stay Away from Scales

MH Rise - Bazelgeuse Igniting Scales

When Bazelgeuse scatters its explosive scales on the battlefield, it will detonate after a few moments. When it turns red, stay away because that is the indicator that it is about to explode! Always be aware of your surroundings when fighting Bazelgeuse.

Ranged Weapons are Recommended

MH Rise - Ranged Weapons Are Recommended

Bazelgeuse is a very big monster and it is quite hard to fight it toe to toe while minding all the explosive shells it scatters on the battlefield. Hence, we suggest using ranged weapons to better position yourself!

For Heavy and Light Bowguns, we recommend going for Pierce Ammos and Pierce Shots for Bows!

Emergency Evade During Divebombs

MH Rise - Bazelgeus Emergency Evade Divebomb

Whenever Bazelgeuse does the fly-by move, it will most likely follow it up with a divebomb. Wiredash away from it or emergency evade to save yourself!

How to Avoid Attacks: Frame Dodge Guide

Use a Flash Bomb When It Flies By to Cancel the Divebomb

MH Rise - Bazelgeuse Flash Bomb

Bazelgeuse will hover and fly away - a tell to know that it's going to turn back and execute a Fly By. Get ready and try flash bombing Bazelgeuse to stop it on its tracks! This will not ground Bazelgeuse but will save you from the divebomb!

Flash Bomb: How to Get and Uses

Go Aggressive When It's Red Because the Hide Becomes Softer

MH Rise - Bazelgeuse Enraged

Bazelgeuse will turn red and be more aggressive when enraged but this also softens its hide. We suggest going aggressive whenever this happens to deal significantly more damage. Also, we suggest the skill Agitator because it gives you bonus attack and affinity when the monster is enraged! Go toe-to-toe to win!

Everything Explodes When Bazelgeuse is Red

MH Rise - Bazelgeuse Explosions

When Bazelgeuse turns red, that's when everything turns explosive. It will try to scatter more red volatile scales around the battlefield or drag its underside that triggers explosions.

Take Note of Changing Weakpoints

Not Enraged Enraged

When Bazelgeuse is not enraged, the weakness for ammo damage (Bowguns and Bows) is at the wings and tails. When enraged, all the weakness is concentrated on the red parts on the chin and the tail - though we honestly suggest aiming for the tail because it is safer and larger.

If you're a gunner, make sure to take note of this and adjust your aim accordingly!

Bring Dung Bombs To Make It Leave

MH Rise - Dung Bomb Info

Bazelgeuse can appear in all locales and invade your hunt for other monsters. Whenever it arrives, throw a Dung Bomb to make it leave the area!

Dung Bomb Location: How to Get and Uses

Bazelgeuse General Attack Patterns

Name Description
Big Chomp A quick bite attack that can flinch hunters. Can hold hunters above explosive scales.
Big Stomp A forceful stomp attack from the air. Follows an aerial glide.
Fire Ball A quick fireball attack that travels in a straight line. Doesn't happen very often but can be executed by Bazelgeuse from time to time.

Chin Drag
Scatters scales in a straight line then drags the chin on them for explosive damage!
Bombing Fly By
Bazelgeuse will glide in the sky and drop bombs on the ground. It usually follows this up with a divebomb so be careful!

Big Chomp

Big Chomp Attack Information
MH Rise - Bazelgeuse Big Chomp
Big Chomp: A very quick bite attack that can flinch an unaware hunter. Bazelgeuse can use this as a way to keep the hunter stationary, especially above a volatile scale.

Big Stomp

Big Stomp Attack Information
MH Rise - Bazelgeuse Big Stomp
Big Stomp: Bazelgeuse will fly and glide over the hunter and will forcefully slam its huge underside. Evade sideways or wiredash away!

Fire Ball

Fire Ball Attack Information
MH Rise - Bazelgeuse Fire Breath
Fire Ball: A really quick fireball attack that can deal fireblight. Only travels at a straight line so just evade sideways!

Bomb Scatters

Bazelgeuse's main mechanic revolves around scattering scales around the battlefield then igniting them to mess with the hunter's movement and repositioning. This also causes Fireblight and deal massive damage.

When Bazelgeuse is angry, instead of the usual dark-colored scales, it scatters red scales that explode faster. Mind your positioning and the environment whenever it's mad!

Bazelgeuse can also scatter volatile scales in different patterns which can originate from either the chin or the tail.

Bomb Scatter Variations
MH Rise - Bazelgeuse Arc Bomb Scatter
Arc Bomb Scatter: Bazelgeuse can scatter volatile bombs in a 180° arc. For this pattern, you should evade either forward or backward away from Bazelgeuse.

If scattered from the tail, Bazelgeuse can follow this one up with a Linear Bomb Scatter - using the previous explosion as a mask to disorient the hunter. Keep this in mind to reposition effectively!
MH Rise - Bazelgeuse Linear Bomb Scatter
Linear Bomb Scatter: Bazelgeuse throws volatile scales in a line, in front or behind, depending on if it originated from the chin or the tail. We suggest evading sideways if it's not too late, else perform an emergency evade.

If scattered from the chin, Bazelgeuse can follow it up with a Chin Drag that can deal massive damage from the explosion and Bazelgeuse itself!

Chin Drag

Chin Drag Attack Information
MH Rise - Bazelgeuse Chin Drag
Chin Drag: Bazelgeuse will scatter two rows of scales in front of it then proceeds on dragging its chin in the middle of the two rows, igniting them in a fiery line. Evade sideways when you see Bazelgeuse scatter two rows of scales in front of it!

Bombing Fly By

Bombing Fly By Attack Information
MH Rise - Bazelgeuse Fly By
Bombing Fly By: Bazelgeuse flies above hunters in a straight line then turning back to glide again - all while scattering scales all over the battlefield in a wide area. It will do this three times before ending it with a Divebomb that can one-hit KO hunters.

Use a Flash Bomb while it is flying by to stop Bazelgeuse from divebombing or perform an emergency evade when it's too late.

Divebomb Attack

Divebomb Attack Information
MH Rise - Bazelgeuse Divebomb
Divebomb Attack: After the Bombing Fly By, Bazelgeuse will execute a Divebomb that can one-hit KO hunters. Since hunters are focused on evading all the scales scattered during the Bombing Fly By, it is very easy to ignore Bazelgeuse and only notice it when it's falling on you.

To stop Bazelgeuse from executing the Divebomb, use a Flash Bomb while it is Flying By which can instantly disorient it and abort the Divebomb. If you don't have a Flash Bomb or you're already too late, perform an Emergency Evade to save yourself!
