How to defeat Almudron

Almudron is a Leviathan type monster which was introduced in Monster Hunter Rise. This monster has a major weakness to Fire. Almudron is another muddy monster, so fighting it can be rather messy if you’re inexperienced. As one of the later monsters you’ll encounter, definitely don’t take the Almudron lightly.

(1 of 2) Head to one of the three potential locations to find Almudron.

Besides flinging mud all over the place, Almudron is very agile and likes to whack hunters with its long tail. It can also dive underground to avoid attacks and try to frighten its prey. For an in-depth strategy to tackling Basarios, refer to our separate Almudron page.

Return to Kamura Village

Once you’ve defeated Almudron, return to Kamura Village and speak with Hinoa to bring this quest to a close.
