How to Beat Magma Almudron

Take Note of Exploding Lava Rocks

MH Rise Sunbreak (Magma Almudron) - Exploding Boulders

Magma Almudron will occasionally spawn rocks in the arena, which would explode over time. Be wary of this as they tend to inflict a great deal of damage to unsuspecting Hunters in its area of effect.

Burrowing Underground Softens Its Legs

MH Rise Sunbreak (Magma Almudron) - Burrowing Softens the Arms and Legs

When Magma Almudron burrows itself underground to perform a move, it re-emerges with red limbs. The lava underground softens these parts, making it a huge weak point you can exploit until it hardens again.

Cure Fireblight by Rolling

MH Rise Sunbreak (Magma Almudron) - Cure Fireblight by Rolling

Magma Almudron inflicts Fireblight, especially on attacks that involve magma. Fireblight deals damage over time so it can be detrimental if left unchecked. Roll three times or once over water to cure this blight.

You may also use Nulberries but rolling is free and sometimes quicker.

Tail Attacks Can Spawn Lava Streams

MH Rise Sunbreak (Magma Almudron) - Tail Attacks Spawn Lava Streams

Most of Magma Almudron's tail attacks spawn lava pools that travel in a line. Don't run straight to its tail but instead evade sideways to avoid the pools.

Flash Bombs Won't Drop the Ball

MH Rise Sunbreak (Magma Almudron) - Flash Bombs Won
