As you must have noticed by now Monster Hunter Rise is a game about….well…hunting monsters. And boy do they come in all sizes. You’ve got the small ones which just take one slash of the sword to kill and then there are ones where the fight has to be divided into 3 stages to beat them. There are small monsters, large monsters, and apex monsters. And the only common thing between them is they’re ready for a meal any time of the day. Slaying these beasts has its own advantages in the form of special resources. The rarer the monster, the rarer the drop. Unfortunately, that also means harder to kill. In this guide, we give you the low down on the Hardest Monsters to beat in Monster Hunter Rise.
Which monsters are the toughest to kill in Monster Hunter Rise
This is a ferocious-looking beast that looks like a bat with the ability to run, fly, and for the first time, be able to see. The real world is already having a bad time dealing with bats in general. Do we really need to emphasize why this one makes it on this list? The Nargacuga falls under the category of Flying Wyverns and is a force to be reckoned with. Keep your eyes peeled as it favors the darkness.
This is just one nasty creature. And we don’t mean that because it lives in the swamp. Shrek lived in the swamp but he was classy. The Almudron produces a golden ooze from its tail that can actually dissolve the very ground you stand on. Urgh. Shrine Ruins, Sandy Plains, and the Flooded Forest are its favored spots. Stay clear of water bodies to avoid this one.
3. Goss Harag
Don’t let its furry exterior fool you. It might look big and bulky but it is ready to pounce on you. The game accurately calls it the Limb Reaper and its icy blades will do just that. That wooly skin is also good at brushing off your attacks while keeping it from freezing in the harsh climate of the Frost Islands. A savage beast that roams the tundra, it is one whose main attacks you should avoid and rightfully fear.
A monster so brutal and scary they literally named it after the devil himself. This bewinged and horned monstrosity is all of your worst nightmares come true. It rules the dry, sandy plains of the desert with nary a fear. It commands your respect and your attention. However, one interesting thing to note about this monster is the fact that it’s actually a herbivore. It will do everything in its power to stop you from touching its favorite cacti. Remind yourself of this one the next time you tell your vegan friend to eat any form of meat.
1. Thunder Serpent Narwa – Hardest monster to beat in Monster Hunter Rise
You know you’ve got it bad when the monster has got its own arena. Couple that with telekinesis, flying abilities, electric bolts, and the sheer audacity to give you extra guns just so you could come up to its level? This is rightfully the one monster that is the hardest to beat in Monster Hunter Rise. In fact, the fight is divided into three parts and will easily take you the better part of 10 mins to complete this one fight. Beware of its circular ring attacks as just one hit is good enough to incapacitate you.
