How to defeat the Magnamalo in Monster Hunter Rise: best weapons and tactics to defeat the flagship monster
Magnamalo behavior and techniques
The first thing you should know is their behavior. The Magnamalo bears certain similarities to other Tusk Wyverns., like for example the Zinogre. Defense of this monster? A quick, withering attack.
The Magnamalo will haunt you with constant setbacks, blows, jumps and his most lethal weapon, a cloud of infernal fire that will release and detonate in various ways. If the explosive steam hits you, it will inflict a hellfire plague that deals delayed damage to you. To get rid of this plague you must use cordoesprint skills or apply deodorant.
Fighting the Magnamalo is extremely annoying, since you will have to dodge its attacks all the time. We recommend that you do short and quick combos to be ready to protect you or dodge their stakes. This monster also has very powerful ranged weapons and jumps. With its tail it will generate energy balls and a “laser” that can knock you out if you get lost. His most damaging attack causes him to teleport at lightning speed from the sky on a downward trajectory.
Techniques to defeat him: better weapons and weaknesses
As usual, the monster’s head is its weak point. This is where we will apply the most damage, either with cuts or with blows of a mace or shield. With projectiles we will cause less damage to any part of the body.
If you can’t hit him on the head, opt for a much more affordable area, blade arms. They are more accessible and you can disable one of their offensive resources. And speaking of suppressing threats, if you want to have a calmer combat, you’d better try cut off its tail, since the vast majority of their attacks come from there.
When it comes to weapons, the best you can equip is something that is balanced and not too slow. The long sword, the shield sword or the insect glaive they are good options. Although you can also use a good spear and ensure defense and a simpler, but constant attack.
By last, the Magnamalo is more vulnerable to the water element and secondly, to lightning, so make sure you have weapons of these elements to make the hunt more enjoyable. Good luck and remember that this monster will be much more difficult to hunt at high rank.
