How to beat the Silver Rathalos in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak
Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak players will need to be ready to fight it. It is a tough creature that has very few weaknesses.
Here are some tips on how players can take advantage of its weaknesses and defeat it:
The Silver Rathalos is extremely weak to Water damage. It has a smaller weakness to Thunder damage.
Fire and Dragon-based weapons should be avoided as they will do little to no harm to the monster.
Its main attacks are aerial attacks, with its claws and breath attacks that send beams of fire at players.
Affecting it with Waterblight will see it become very vulnerable to other Water attacks.
The head, neck, abdomen, tail, and back are all very resistant to damage.
Attack its wings and legs to deal the most damage.
Bring some stun grenades into the battle to knock it out of the sky in order to focus on its wings and legs.
It does have an enraged Incandescent state that gives its attacks more intensity, but the state does turn its head into one of the weak points. Assault the head during this state to deal great damage and bring it back to its normal battle form.
The Silver Rathalos often rears back before attacking, so use this as an indication to get ready to dodge.
After dodging, Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak players should
attack the creature with everything they’ve got until it moves back into a guarded position.
