How to Beat Malzeno in Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak
Here are all seven abilities that Malzeno uses against you:
This is the most dangerous attack as it applies the new Bloodblight status on you. Once affected, you lose health and you won’t be able to heal. If this status hits you when you are already too low, you’ll lose the fight. It’s recommended to keep your health topped up as much as possible and not get greedy.
If you let Malzeno drain too much of your health, it triggers a transformation and it’ll attack you more rapidly.
Malzeno takes to the skies as it bombards you in a large area. If you see it fly, you should immediately move to cover and avoid incoming fire.
Malzeno throws out three orbs that move away from the boss. Getting hit by these applies the Bloodblight status on players.
These are simple attacks that are often used in quick succession.
If you stay too far from the boss, Malzeno uses this high range attack.
You have to stay somewhat close to the boss, otherwise it teleports close to you and starts laying down damage.
With some of Malzeno’s attacks being reliant on you straying too far from the boss, you can stay close to the boss to completely prevent some attacks from ever taking place. As long as you are not affected by Bloodblight, you should be safe.
