Tetranadon Attack Patterns

Learning the attack patterns of the Tetranadon in MH Rise is very crucial before  going ahead and fighting it. The Tetranadon will perform the following attacks during your battle.

  • Waterball Barrage/Bomb: The Tetranadon has the ability to eject water balls from its massive belly. When it is in its usual state, it will spit three water balls, but when extended, it will discharge one big water ball. When you’re struck, you get waterblight right away.
  • Ground Pound: The Tetranadon will elevate one of its feet and slam it to the ground, similar to a Sumo Wrestler.It will also induce tremors when enlarged, thus having some Tremor Resistance skill would help. As the Tetranadon winds up before smashing its foot to the ground, you can simply move out of range of its attack.
  • Tetrana-splash: In both its normal and extended forms, the Tetranadon will leap far into the air and attempt to crush the hunter. It’s a powerful move with a large hitbox and tremendous damage, so dodge it.
  • Rock Throw: The Tetranadon can pick up rocks and toss them at the player when expanded. It’s a good idea to keep an eye on the rock as soon as it’s picked up so you can quickly avoid the strike.
  • Pebble Wave: The Tetranadon fires a storm of stones laced with water at the hunter using its massive paw. Because it only moves in one direction, this splash can be easily avoided. It has the ability to rip the sound barrier, so stay away from it since it has the potential to knock you out.
  • Kappa Charge: The Tetranadon will charge you in the belly with reckless abandon, seeking to knock you unconscious. With a weapon that can protect, this technique can be blocked. After charging, if the Tetranadon is significantly harmed, it will deflate.
