How to Defeat Magma Almudron in Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak

Here are a few tricks that will help you easily take down Magma Almudron with relative ease in MH Rise.

Picking the Right Weapons

Since Magma Almudron is a fire element monster and is immune to fire-type attacks then be sure to pick weapons that deal anything other than fire damage.

Magma Almudron in MH Rise is weak against Ice and Water attacks thus make sure that your attack arsenal includes lots of water and ice type of attacks so you can deal damage.

Hitting the Spot

Magma Almudron has straightforward anatomy and like most monsters, this one is also weak at the head. Aim your attacks toward its head to deal the most amounts of damage. When you are fighting the monster, keep one eye on its tail as most of its attacks are launched using the tail. It’s not very fast thus the attacks are fairly predictable.

Dodging Correctly

Often time Magma Almudron will launch magma balls at you that will either come rolling or flying through the air and a common thing about them is that there will always be more than one with some distance between them

Try to dodge by staying between that distance and also be sure to not over-dodge as you will get hit by the second one.

Using Its Attacks Against It

Some of the Magma’s attacks involve it half-burying itself into the ground while the upper half of its body is exposed. Use that to your advantage and launch as many attacks as possible because during that time it cannot defend the exposed parts of its body.

When it uses the Magma Explosion attack, it need rest after that so be sure to take full advantage of that situation and launch an all-out attack and deal as much damage as possible.

Attack, Dodge, Repeat

The best way to take down this monster is by following a simple strategy. Attack, Dodge, Repeat. This seemingly mundane yet successful strategy will help you take down this boss.

Though it makes take a reasonable amount of time you might want to take your time with your attacks because this is not an easy boss and taking your time and waiting for that opening and then launching an attack will help you take this boss in one try.
