Monster Hunter Rise Arzuros: Weaknesses, Parts and Tips on Beating It

The Arzuros is a monster longtime fans will remember, and it's back in Monster Hunter Rise.

Monster Hunter Rise Arzuros Weaknesses

The Arzuros is primarily weak to fire, meaning picking a flame-based weapon is an easy way to make a hunt a little simpler for you.

Its forelegs are the best place to attack with such a weapon, but Ice weapons are handy to have if you need an alternative.

Interestingly, you can deal the same damage to the forelegs with a thunder-based weapon, but you'll see damage falloff elsewhere – making the flame or ice weapons the best choices overall.

Finally, we'd recommend carrying some honey with you. While it can be used to craft better healing items, the Arzuros can actually steal it from you. Doing so will leave it vulnerable as it starts to eat, allowing an opportunity for hunters to exploit.

Ailments 

The Arzuros is particularly susceptible to poison, paralysis, and sleep attacks, meaning support players can do well just to keep the Azuros poisoned, paralyzed or asleep.

It's also highly affected by Exhaust, so if you have any ranged Hunters, it makes a useful coating to deplete the Azuros' stamina.

Tips For Slaying the Arzuros in MH Rise

The Arzuros has some attacks that make it absolutely lethal:

  • The Arzuros can charge and tackle, and this is a hard move to dodge - keep a wirebug handy.
  • Speaking of wirebugs, the Azuros can be mounted with relative ease - making it a great monster to ride against others for a damage boost.
  • As we mentioned earlier, take Honey into a hunt for some easy distractions for the Arzuros.
  • The Arzuros has a hip-attack that's not well telegraphed. It doesn't do huge damage, but it's worth remembering if you're getting in close.
  • If Arzuros grabs you, wirebug-dodge away.
