How to defeat Aknosom

Aknosom is a Bird Wyvern type monster which was first introduced in Monster Hunter Rise. This Monster has a major weakness to Water. Unsurprisingly for a bird, it’s extremely agile; although–fortunately for you–it’ll spend most of the fight on the ground. Its weapons of choice are its long, sharp beak and massive wingspan. When pushed, it can shoot dangerous fire balls.

(1 of 2) Head to one of the three locations to find Aknosom roaming around.

Aknosom’s main gimmick is that it supposedly resembles a parasol. Its long legs represent the handle of the parasol, while its large, collar frill can fold in and out like the canopy of parasol. The shape of the frill sometimes provides an indication of what attacks Aknosom will use. For an in-depth strategy to tackling Aknosom, refer to our separate Aknosom page.
