How to Defeat Basarios in Monster Hunter Rise

Basarios is a huge monster dragon in MH Rise. Since it is weak to water and dragon weapons, these are the best choices for going against Basarios. It will hide underground with only its back exposed, camouflaging as simple boulders.

Basarios Weak Spots

Bararios’ tail, chest, and back can be broken. These allow you to not only damage it but make it hard for Basarios to make his tail sweep attack, or harder to hide if he runs away, and even lower his defenses.

Aim for Basarios’ Chest

Breaking Basarios’s chest/stomach will drastically lower Basarios’s defense. Since other body parts are harder to hit, damaging the stomach will be the best option to weaken Basarios. Other than this, the tail and claws are the best weak points to aim for.

Take Advantage of its Slow Speed

It has high damage but is slow, and the player can avoid it if they do not become greedy with their hits. The most common attack Basarios uses is his rush attack. The best way to punish it is by dodging to the side so you don’t get hit, then attacking Basarios’ tail.

Make Use of Bombs

If Basarios manages to run away and hide, it’s best to start the fight with bombs. Since Basarios will be in the ground with only its back out, you can easily place several bombs and blow them off.

Since bombs deal damage regardless of hardness, they will give a great start to the fight. Also, Basarios takes 1.1x damage when underground. Not much, but it’s good to use.
