Player Strategy to Kill Rakna-Kadaki in MHR
Rakna-Kadaki’s fire breath will first have an explosion around her when the player should dodge away. Right after the explosion, the fire will pour down in a stream of circular motion around her. This time it is best to stand directly below her if she is hanging from the ceiling or around her if she is on the ground. This will help you sneak a couple of attacks on her and kill Rakna-Kadaki in Monster Hunter Rise.
For the silk beams attack, you will see a telegraph warning. Rakna-Kadaki will momentarily just aim the beams close to her. At this point, get as far away from her as possible and dodge her attack. If you get caught in the silk, you will lose mobility for a few seconds.
Rakna-Kadaki’s Rachnoids in Monster Hunter Rise have their own health. So even when they are attached to her, a hit on them will not hit Rakna but only her babies. You have to deal with both of their health bars individually. When the Rachnoids on the ground, you can kill them separately too.
To make Rakna-Kadaki lose the Rachnoid attacks, aim for her legs. Once you attack her legs enough, she will start losing her silk vein. This would result in her losing grip on her Rachnoids and you will have one less attack to deal with. On top of that, her abdomen area will now be more vulnerable and take more damage than before. This damage could help you kill Rakna Kadaki faster.
But Rakna Kadaki is an improviser who you will not be able to defeat easily. Once her babies are off of her, she will use her abdomen in a hammer sort of way and try to hit the hunter down to the ground. Also remember, time is the key. Once at this stage, she will try to grow another layer of silk and Rachnoids. If enough time passes in this stage before you knock her down you will have to deal with her silk and Rachnoids again right from the start.
In short, the way to Beat Rakna-Kadaki in Monster Hunter Rise is speed, you first remove the webbing off her body, making her lose her Rachnoid attacks and becoming more vulnerable. This is when you attack her the most and fastest to kill her during this short time frame.
