Monster Hunter Rise Khezu Weaknesses

The neck and head of the Khezu are its main weak points. Other than that, the wing is its only particularly strong area. You’ll want to use fire against the Khezu, with water and dragon also doing marginal extra elemental damage. 


Poison is the only 3-star ailment that can be inflicted on Khezu. Bring some Poison Smoke Bombs with you and try to use them when it is weak. Blast and Fireblight are also good here. Khezu can deal Thunderblight, so bring Nulberries.
