The following guide will show you where to find and how to defeat Espinas in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak.

Where Can I Find Espinas In MH Rise Sunbreak?

Espinas may be found in Sunbreak’s Jungle Locale, a brand-new returning region.

Espinas often shows little regard for its surroundings and may ignore hunters even when they assault it, but when it is agitated, it may utilize the spikes on its body to show its true savagery and destroy those who attacked it.

The distinctive red spikes on the strong green body of Flying Wyverns serve as both a weapon of attack and defense, effectively keeping enemies at distance. They thus frequently appear in their realm spread out and unwinding.

However, when they feel danger, their blood vessels enlarge, turning their hide and wing membranes brilliant red, and they will charge at you with notable violence.

Espinas is noteworthy for having a dual nature that allows it to be both terribly violent when challenged and careless with its environment to the point where it frequently and openly slumbers.
