MH Rise Sunbreak (Pyre Rakna-Kadaki) - Hunting Tips

Pyre Rakna-Kadaki coordinate with the Pyrantula they scatter around. Ignoring these small fry will strengthen their explosive attacks, so slay any nearby Pyrantula they can spread around. Cotinued attacks cause them to lay eggs and stop coordinating with the tiny Temnocerans.

How to Beat Pyre Rakna-Kadaki

Know the Two States of Pyre Rakna-Kadaki

Like the normal Rakna-Kadaki, Pyre Rakna-Kadaki has two phases during the fight: Cowled and Big Abdomen.

Cowled Big Abdomen

Characterized by webbing on its legs

Characterized by a huge, bloated abdomen

Pyre Rakna-Kadaki will use its Pyrantulas more while cowled. It also uses more thread attacks while on this state.

While on Big Abdomen state, it becomes more aggressive and approaches the Hunter head on. Be careful!

Aim for The Legs While Cowled

MH Rise Sunbreak (Pyre Rakna Kadaki) - Aim for the Legs While Cowled

Pyre Rakna-Kadaki will start the fight with dark threads cowled around its legs. Aim for these as they are easy to hit because they have a huge hitzone.

If you deal enough damage to these parts, Pyre Rakna-Kadaki will topple and transition to Big Abdomen state.

Aim for The Abdomen While It's Huge

MH Rise Sunbreak (Pyre Rakna Kadaki) - Aim for the Abdomen While It

After transitioning to the Big Abdomen state, all of its attacks will be focused on swinging its abdomen like a hammer. While it's in this state, hit the abdomen to deal maximum damage!

If you deal enough damage, Pyre Rakna-Kadaki will topple and transition back to Cowled state.

Focus on the Head After Toppling Down

MH Rise Sunbreak (Pyre Rakna Kadaki) - Focus on the Head After Toppling Down

While transitioning between cowled and big abdomen states, Pyre Rakna-Kadaki will topple and expose its head for a short time. This gives you a huge opening to dish out some free damage.

Use Cleansers to Clear the Webbed Status

MH Rise Sunbreak (Pyre Rakna Kadaki) - Use Cleansers to Clear Webbed Status

Like its cousin, Pyre Rakna-Kadaki also uses its threads to hold Hunters in place. To mitigate this, repeatedly smash any attack button or use Cleansers to quickly cure this ailment.

Cleanser: How to Get and Effects

Pyre Rakna-Kadaki Attacks and Moves

Name Description
Exploding Threads Pyre Rakna-Kadaki connects with nearby Pyrantulas and ignites the thread to create a huge explosion.
Gut Attacks This monster uses its huge abdomen to deal damage in a wide area.
Claw Swipe Attacks Pyre Rakna-Kadaki uses its nimble limbs to extend its reach and sweep foes to the ground.
Flamethrower Attacks Pyre Rakna-Kadaki boasts its control over fire and spews flames that inflicts Fireblight.
Bite Attack A quick bite attack that can flinch Hunters.
Explosive Stomp Pyre Rakna-Kadaki stands on its back legs and slams its front with full force. Explosions also happen on impact.

Exploding Threads

Pyre Rakna-Kadaki will summon Pyrantulas tethered to it by threads, and then ignites them like a fuse. This deals huge damage and can effectively zone out Hunters.

Exploding Threads Attack Variations
MH Rise Sunbreak (Pyre Rakna Kadaki) - Fanning Thread Ignition
Fanning Thread Ignition: Pyre Rakna-Kadaki will throw Pyrantulas into a fan formation while being tethered by a thread. It then ignites a fire that travels through the thread causing an explosion once it reaches the Pyrantulas.

Since the thread spreads in a fan, it is better to be as far away from Pyre Rakna-Kadaki as possible. Avoid touching the threads to avoid this attack!
MH Rise Sunbreak (Pyre Rakna Kadaki) - Rakna-Centric Thread Ignition
Rakna-Centric Thread Ignition: Pyre Rakna-Kadaki will shout then quickly sends out Pyrantulas connected via thread around it. It then ignites them by running fire through the thread.

There are wide, thread-less areas in this attack that will let you evade this attack. Be sure to stay in those areas!

Gut Attacks

Pyre Rakna-Kadaki weaponizes its large abdomen towards its foes. Anything caught in the way will feel its full force!

Gut Hammer Attack Variations
MH Rise Sunbreak (Pyre Rakna Kadaki) - Gut Punch
Gut Punch: Pyre Rakna-Kadaki uses its huge abdomen to dash and deal damage to unsuspecting Hunters.

This move is fairly quick so quick reaction is key to avoid this move! It's also a perfect opportunity for a counterattack since it's not usually followed by another attack.
MH Rise Sunbreak (Pyre Rakna Kadaki) - Gut Hammer
Gut Hammer: Pyre Rakna-Kadaki uses its huge and heavy abdomen to deal huge damage against anything on its underside. Since this species of Rakna-Kadaki is more explosive, the attacks are also infused with fire and can cause Fireblight. This monster also does this move twice if enraged.

This move has a long wind up so it gives you time to evade them properly. Simply evade to the side!

Claw Swipe Attacks

Pyre Rakna-Kadaki uses its long limbs to trip or damage unsuspecting Hunters. Careful not to get caught off guard!

Claw Swipe Attack Variations
MH Rise Sunbreak (Pyre Rakna Kadaki) - Front Claw Swipes
Front Claw Swipes: Pyre Rakna-Kadaki extends its front claws to take a swipe on the Hunter. This can throw Hunters to the ground!

It's fairly hard to avoid this move because of its wide reach however, evading backwards does the trick.
MH Rise Sunbreak (Pyre Rakna Kadaki) - Limb Swipes
Limb Swipes: Pyre Rakna-Kadaki drags its huge limbs on the ground damaging anything caught in the way.

The move's hitbox is only at the front, so evading towards Pyre Rakna-Kadaki's abdomen will help in avoiding this attack.

Flamethrower Attacks

Pyre Rakna-Kadaki boasts its control over flames and spews streams of fire from its mouth and body. Know how to deal with each one so you'll survive!

Flamethrower Attack Variations
MH Rise Sunbreak (Pyre Rakna Kadaki) - Ground Thrower
Ground Thrower: Pyre Rakna-Kadaki will expel flames from its mouth in a straight line. Anything caught will be inflicted with Fireblight.

Evade sideways to avoid this attack!
MH Rise Sunbreak (Pyre Rakna Kadaki) - Sweeping Ground Thrower
Sweeping Ground Thrower: When a straight line flamethrower is not enough, Pyre Rakna-Kadaki will expel flames from its mouth and sweep from side to side twice.

It is fairly hard to avoid this attack because of its wide reach but try executing an emergency evade when caught inside!
MH Rise Sunbreak (Pyre Rakna Kadaki) - Side Thrower
Side Thrower: Pyre Rakna-Kadaki will concentrate all heat to its side and expel it in a short range flamethrower attack. The monster may even move sideways (toward the direction of the fire) to catch Hunters who think they have evaded the move.

Don't let your guard down with this attack especially since Pyre Rakna-Kadaki may move to catch foes napping.
MH Rise Sunbreak (Pyre Rakna Kadaki) - Towering Flamethrower
Towering Flamethrower: Pyre Rakna-Kadaki extends its head upwards then expels flames from above. It will sometimes sweep the flames in a circle around it, hitting anything caught in the radius.

If you're near the monster, avoiding this attack by evading under Pyre Rakna-Kadaki. If you're far away, continue creating distance between you and the monster, as this move can reach very far.

Bite Attack

Bite Attack Information
MH Rise Sunbreak (Pyre Rakna Kadaki) - Bite Attack
Bite Attack: A quick bite attack that can flinch Hunters. Also causes the Webbed status.

Evade this move simply by rolling sideways.

Explosive Stomp

Explosive Stomp Attack Information
MH Rise Sunbreak (Pyre Rakna Kadaki) - Explosive Stomp
Explosive Strike: Pyre Rakna-Kadaki uses its legs to strike at its target, causing an explosion. This inflicts Fireblight on impact!

Time your evasions to when Pyre Rakna-Kadaki is about to hit you.This makes sure you're safe from this homing attack. You may also use this opportunity to counterattack because it has a long windup animation.
