Mizutsune Attack Patterns

Learning the move-set and the attacks of your opponents is the main key to winning a battle in Monster Hunter Rise. Below are the Attacks performed by Mizutsune in MHR.

  • Water Breath Attack: Using his attack, Mizutsune performs a water beam attack in four different patterns.
  • Bubble Attacks: Mizutsune creates bubbles around it with different color having their own unique traits such as: Pink – Causes Bubbleblight on the second hit, Green – Recovers health, Red – gives an attack boost.
  • Tail Slam: Used as a rush attack where Mizutsune strikes with its tail and that at high-speed making it almost impossible to avoid if caught in its range.
  • Full Body Slam: An attack seen from a mile away making it really easy to avoid. When Mizutsune raises its right leg and is in a position where it looks like falling face first, that’s your signal to get out of the way.
  • Jumping Slam: Probably the most dangerous attack on the list. Using this attack, Mizutsune leaps in air and rotates which crates bubbles of some sort making it a surprise attack from out of nowhere.

How to Defeat Mizutsune in Monster Hunter Rise?

Mizutsune will use its body to inflict physical damage on you, which takes 25% of your health away. It also breathes bubbles that knock you back and a beam of water that acts exactly like a laser. This beam of laser is a deadly attack that inflicts negative effects.

Some of the negative status effects caused by the water bubbles and laser can cause you to slip or drain your stamina rapidly. In case of slipping, use a Condenser to cancel the status effect.

Most of Mizutsune’s attacks generate bubbles of water that deal some damage. When it is about to shoot the water laser from its mouth, your character will shout, which will be the indicator for you to get away from it.

Once enraged, Mizutsune will use more physical attacks like tail slam and use its belly to slide on the water and rush towards you.

The key to winning this fight is to keep constantly moving around and dodge the bubbles. There are three types of bubbles that Mizutsune emits. The white bubbles will damage you; red will give you an Attack Boost, and green will give you health.

Avoid the white bubbles as they stick around for a longer time. Make sure you don’t equip any heavy weapon as it will affect your movement speed.

Focus on its head as it takes double the amount of damage it takes on any other body part. When the crest of Mizutsune is destroyed, use Thunder attacks to damage until it is defeated.
