Arzuros is a Fanged Beast Monster which was introduced in Monster Hunter Portable 3rd. This Monster has thick claws and a heavy forearm which are capable of dealing heavy blows. You’ll first face this beast during the 2☆ Village Quest “Grizzly Glutton”.
Compared to the previous encounters in Monster Hunter Rise, Arzuros is still a pretty simple fight, although some of its attacks can be punishing if you’re unaware of them. Thankfully, due to the size of the Monster it’s pretty easy to hit with most weapons, but beware, this beast can rack up some speed if it wants to.
Arzuros relies heavily on its thick claws and heavy forearms to defend itself, so you’ll want to be attacking from behind to avoid taking any unnecessary damage. Finally, make sure to take Honey with you into the Hunt, as Arzuros will steal it and stop to eat it, allowing you to get some easy attacks in.

Throughout the battle against Arzuros, you’ll notice it will go onto all fours and dash towards you causing you to fall down.
This attack can deal a large amount of damage if you get caught by it, but luckily you’ll be able to easily prepare for this move, as Azuros will have to lean before striking.
As you progress through the battle, Arzuros will attempt to grab you. If successful you’ll not be able to attack for a short amount of time.
Throughout the battle the Azuros will attempt to ram into you sideways or backwards. However this is one of the more difficult attacks to read as there aren’t really any noticable signs to see when it’s about to occur.
Before entering the battle, make sure you have a weapon with the correct element equipped, so Fire or Ice for this fight. Once you approach Arzuros for the first time, stick to the back as this will allow you to avoid most of its attacks and one of Arzuros’ weak spots is the rear which is a bonus!
During the fight Arzuros will lean back, this indicates that he’ll attempt to slash you with his claws, so roll back to avoid it. You’ll also want to watch out for the sideways or backwards ram which will knock you over leaving you vulnerable to attacks. The best way to avoid this, is to go in for a few hits and get back for a moment before going back in for more.
Throughout the battle Arzuros will get on all fours and dash towards you and knock you down. This is easily avoidable as long as you aren’t too close or mid combo. Finally, Arzuros can grab you, so make sure you have a Wirebug available at all times to escape its grasp.
