Once the hunt starts, immediately pick up the nearby slinger ammo inside the camp before you slide down towards the wedge beetles. Use the collapsable rocks against Kulve Taroth if the initial spawn is on the far right side of the map, move quickly as Kulve Taroth will pass through this area shortly after the start of the hunt. However, if Kulve Taroth's initial spawn is in the center, you can take your time and wair for Kulve Taroth to be in position before you use the nearby collapsable rocks.

If you deal enough damage to the chest, it will become red-hot and the metal will soften. This will increase the efficiency of your attacks and make most of his body parts vulnerable. Focus on attacking this part as soon as she comes out of the hole and use Large Barrel Bombs for maximum damage.
In Area 1, Kulve Taroth teleports when she enters a hold in the area and she will emerge on another hole on the opposite side of the map. You can always predict where she will appear as shown in the image above.
If you or any of your teammates are using the hammer or the dual blades as a weapon, you can fight near the slopes to extend your combos for better damage efficiency.
There are three collapsable rocks in area 3 that you can utilize to deal with massive damage to Kulve Taroth without having to attack her directly.
However, if you already have a high tracking level, there is no need for this environmental hazard to be used.
After moving to the final area, make sure that your team is using sleep or blast affinity weapons since they are extremely useful against Kulve Taroth. Keep in mind that Kulve Taroth has a high tolerance against sleep, make sure that only use it on this final phase since it will be pretty hard to do it again for a second time.
Once Kulve Taroth is enraged, she will become more vulnerable however, her attacks will become more powerful. It is a good idea to use Temporal Mantle to keep on the pressure without having to worry about dodging, except when avoiding the magma breath.
|Magma Breath becomes more powerful||Continuous Breath Attacks|
|Enhanced Lava Attack||Front Leg Slam|
Master Rank Kulve Taroth has added a new front leg attack. Although it can deal high damage, it can be pretty easy to avoid. Since the preliminary movement takes a long time to wind up, you will have time to move away even if you make mistakes.
Master Rank Kulve Taroth will now move faster than the regular variant of Kulve Taroth. Using the collapsable rocks in area 1 will become so much harder because of this. You will have to time your slinger shot more carefully during this hunt.
Returning to the base will lose all progress that you have managed to complete during the hunt. This can also decrease the number of appraisal weapons that you will receive at the end. It is best that you wait until Master Rank Kulve Taroth leaves and you return to base naturally.
It is necessary to destroy fifteen or more parts by the time Master Rank Kulve Taroth reaches area 3. in order to make this happen, you must utilize the collapsable rocks in area 1 and use Large Barrel Bombs to deal enough damage.
During the enraged state, Kulve Taroth is vulnerable and extremely powerful. Destroying parts during this state will drastically increase the rare appraisal weapons that you can receive at the end of the hunt.
It is said that your team is required to destroy 15 or more parts from Master Rank Kulve Taroth before she enters the enraged state. Breaking multiple parts early in the hunt can easily be achieved since they will automatically regenerate every time Master Rank Kulve Taroth enters a hole in area 1, because of these you can break these parts again to reach the requirement before reaching area 3.
If your team is not able to reach the conditions before Kulve Taroth moves to the next area, the quest will immediately fail and you will have to start all over again. However, if your tracking level is 4 or higher, it is almost impossible to fail the quest since you will have to deal minimal damage to move to the next area with Kulve Taroth.
|Enraged State||・Destroy 15 parts|
|Armor Release||・Destroy 10 parts
・Deal a certain amount of damage
|Failure Conditions||・Inflict a certain amount of damage before destroying 15 parts|
Rainbow framed rewards will have a higher chance of getting a rarity 8 appraisal weapons. If you are collecting these weapons, try to achieve the conditions mentioned above to get as many rewards as possible in every Master Rank Kulve Taroth hunt you do.
