How to beat Magma Almudron in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak

All Magma Almudron weaknesses

Magma Almudron is a firey version of the standard one. Rather than worrying about water, you need to stay on top of the large mounds of fire and lava heading toward you and your team. We recommend increasing your Fire resistance for this encounter.

When battling against Magma Almudron, focus on the tail tip and the head with a Slashing weapon. You can potentially try to break these areas to harvest materials from this monster and heavily damage it. A Blunt weapon will also want to focus on the head, although it’s slightly less effective than a Slashing one. However, both weapons are perfect when hitting the foreleg and abdomen. We recommend Water or Ice when using Elemental weapons, with Fire, Thunder, and Dragon being the least useful.

All Magma Almudron material drops

While fighting this creature, we recommend aiming for the torso, forelegs, body, the head and trying to cut off the tail. The Magmadron Mantle will be the most challenging material to try and loot off this creature, with a three percent chance across the board or worse. If you’ve broken off enough parts and received several materials during the battle, capturing the Magma Almudron is an excellent idea as you will acquire more materials over slaying it.
