How to Beat Shogun Ceanataur

Heal Bleeding by Crouching or Eating Sushifish

Shogun Ceanataur - Heal Bleeding by Crouching or Eating Sushifish

Shogun Ceanataur primarily inflicts the bleed status when it attacks with its long, sharp claws. Bleed fills out a meter that if kept uncheck, will deal extra damage on the next received attack.

Heal the bleed status by crouching for a short time or eating Sushifish.

Heal Waterblight with Nulberry

Shogun Ceanataur - Heal Waterblight with Nulberry

Nulberry Location: How to Get and Effects

Stay Aggressive to Topple Shogun Ceanataur

Shogun Ceanataur - Go Aggressive to Topple The Monster

It is very easy to topple Shogun Ceanataur so always go into the offensive to maximize the time it is down. It won't come easy though, as the monster will also go all out on you!

Attack After the Claw Impaling Move

Shogun Ceanataur - Attack After the Claw Impaling Move

This one attack where Shogun Ceanataur impales its claws on the ground will leave it open for successive attacks. Evade this move then switch into the offensive as Shogun Ceanataur tries hard to pull its claws from the ground!

Break the Shell for Another Weakpoint

Shogun Ceanataur - Break Shogun Ceanataur Shell for Another Weakpoint

Your attacks may not be as effective as they should when hitting the shell on its back but hit it enough and it will break - exposing a weak point that you can exploit afterwards!

It burrows on the ground after a while though and it will re-emerge with a brand new shell so try to be super aggressive before that!

This move is very easy to telegraph as the monster will move first before striking. Reposition accordingly to avoid this attack.
Shogun Ceanataur - Half Moon Claw Strikes
Half-Moon Claw Swipes: A quick 180 degree attack that punishes Hunters that stays on its back for a long time. This move always come in two's so careful not Wirefalling back to the monster until the second one's done.

Always expect this attack to come whenever you're attacking Shogun Ceanataur's back. It's quick and very hard to evade so try counterattacking instead.

Burrowing Strike
