Tips On How To Beat Rajang
All Attack Moves Of Rajang
|Double Lariats||Swings both arms and moves forward. Watch out for the tremor at the end of its attack.|
|Spinning Attack||Bends the upper body and spins. Avoid by dodging to the side.|
|Charge||Charges forward. Don't face in front of him since it's hard to dodge after seeing this attack coming.|
|Kelbi Step||Jumps to the side like Kelbi. The range is long enough to capture gunners.|
|Jumping Attack||Jumps vertically and falls forward. Easy to dodge since preliminary action is long.|
|Bear Hug||Jumps toward the hunter and bear hugs. Use Scatternut to break away.|
|Breath||Shoots light beam. Good timing to attack from its side.|
|Back step||Step backward. It steps back very frequently so don't stand behind it.|
|Slamming||Slams the hunter when its skin is hardened. Avoid by moving behind it.|
Can't Use Clutch Claw To Its Head
When you aim Rajang's head and use Clutch Claw, you hold on to its arm. You still can slam Rajang into wall by grubbing on to its arm so don't worry.
Use Ice Attack & Aim At Its Tail
Rajang's elemental weakness was Ice Attack and its weak point was its tail in the previous generation of Monster Hunter. There is a high possibility that these characteristics are the same.
Aim Its Body When Rajang Is Rampage Mode
Rajang becomes golden and becomes stronger when entering rampage mode. Arms are too hard to attack when it's in rampage mode so attack its body instead.
Some Traps Won't Work Against Rajang
Rajang's resistance to trap differs depending on its condition. Refer to the table below.
|Pitfall Trap||Shock Trap|
