Furious Rajang Details & Locations


Furious Rajang Combat Info

  • Resistant to Shock Trap, can be captured using Pitfall Trap
  • Kinsect Extracts:
    • Red: Head.
    • Orange: Arms/Body.
    • White: Hindlegs.
  • Enraged mode: Glows Yellow. Lightning constantly runs through its fur.
  • Furious Rajang will constantly be in its powered up mode, making it more aggressive and its attacks quicker. It will never revert back to its black fur form until it is slain.
  • Since it's always in its powered up mode, Furious Rajang can enrage at any time, entering its even more powerful Rampage Mode shortly after. Without wounding it, you won't be able to attacks its arms at all in this mode!

Furious Rajang Tips

  • Furious Rajang does not have a tail (which is why it is Furious) and thus its only weakpoint is its arms/head, which can be hard to hit, tenderizing it's hindlegs can be extremely useful but difficult to manage considering how aggressive this monster is in shaking you off.
  • Attacking its head while it is in its Rampage mode (arms glow red and attacks bounce off) will make it end faster.
  • Furious Rajang has multiple attacks that can hit behind him - be careful of his 'goat-kicker' (his back leg just kicking) and of course always be ready to roll. Still, attacking from behind is your safest strategy.
  • Furious Ragang enrages rather easily and triggers its Rampage mode very fast. Weaken its Arms with a Clutch Claw attack to avoid deflection, be advised that since Furious Rajang is extremely fast, pulling of the Clutch Claw attack might be tough.
  • Since Furious Rajang has no tail, you stop its rampage mode by dealing damage to its head. Be very careful though, as Furious Rajang's attacks are most devastating if you are in front of it.
  • Furious Rajang will destroy Shock Traps and can still attack out of a Pitfall Trap.
  • It is definitely recommended to avoid getting pinned, since Furious Rajang's pin attack will easily deal more than 50% of your health (with Health Boost 3) and knock you down, inflict Thunderblight, and most likely Stun, it, however, can't kill you (like Safi'jiiva's pin, it will leave you at 1hp).
  • Using a Flash Pod on Furious Rajang while someone is pinned will free the pinned hunter.
  • The final attack of Furious Rajang's pin deals heavy damage around him, not just the hunter that has been pinned so be wary.

        Wouldn't this funny monke be considered a deviant, because it had a run in with a hunter, and lost its tail, then became trapped in enraged status?

          capcom: HEY ive got a great idea! how about we combine a monkey with lots of fur with electricity and make it 10 times the size and then add godlike strength to him also take away his tail and for a finishing touch make him pretty much impossible to beat!
          gamers who play mhw: wow.... this monster is the worst idea in the history of monster hunter world

                "Mew are number one!" sounds like a cute kind of quest but soon realize it's the exact opposite. seriously a temper furious Rajang? The only reason I did the quest is because I want to experience something new and OH BOY did I get something new! He doesn't have any particularly new moves but he hits very hard. More so or maybe the same like AT Namielle. Took me like 2 tries to defeat him since I had a pretty good team though the first one didn't do that well. But we managed to do 2 parts broken before I DISCONNECTED BECAUSE OF WIFI! But I thought to myself " okay.. he already has 2 part breaks and you have zero faints so you might win" and I did, and completed the quest in under 40 minutes :) Well that's my experience how's yours?

                  Is it me, or is Furious Rajang an "easier" fight than vanilla Rajang? Yeah, it has more HP, hits harder, has fewer weak points and has bigger and flashier moves, but those big and flashy moves also have bigger, punishable openings, and you have more time to recover after getting smacked. Vanilla Rajang feels faster, more relentless, and tends to unleash more attacks with no tells (like when you try to attack from behind and it instantly 180s to punch you into space). Vanilla Rajang also has no qualms about sitting on your fallen body and smashing you on wakeup for kill combos, whereas I've almost never had Furious do that to me. Finally, Vanilla's big lightning slam seems WAAAAAY harder to avoid than Furious', as it tracks tighter and seems to have a wider AOE (forcing you to rely on panic dives the instant you see the startup), whereas you can easily outrun or roll away from Furious' version, giving you room for a quick punish.

                    This thing's basically a perma-hitbox that darts all over the map before you can hit it where it hurts, and I've hated every iteration of Rajang in every game it's ever been in. That said, one skill has remained consistently good against all monkey monsters in MonHun, and that's Tremor Resist. Even Furious Rajang takes a LONG time to recover from its big ground-pounds, giving you precious seconds to smack its face until its battery goes out. Considering how frequently it hits those quakes, this can be an excellent source of safe damage. Just don't get greedy.

                      Some idiot at Capcom has such a hard-on for this stupid monkey, I'm amazed my ps4 doesn't just ejaculate every time he shows up. What a wasted slot.

                            i keep getting hit buy his new move where he throws lightning balls to ground and it spreads out. also it sticks to the ground then explodes. I wonder how much defense would it take to get so powerful that one hit only takes about 5%of your health?

                              So like whats the deal with him jumping away from pitfall traps? I tried to use them while fighting to deal some damage but every time I baited him onto them he seemed to trigger it and jump away, essentially destroying it. I even snuck up on him once with the ghillie mantle and dropped it right under him while he was standing still and he still jumped away. I think I've only gotten him in the pit maybe 2 out of ten attempts

                                Near impossible, his single-shot instant kill thunder attack grab is super overpowered and needs to be nerfed. Did it to me twice in a row right out of the gate after meeting him, completely put me off to MHW.

                                  I actually managed to solo this beast with a Longsword but I never got a perfect foresight slasg and my sword gauge stayed yellow because it was so hard to get a single hit in, I just basically took my time and used every opportunity I had, going as far as wearing challenger mantle to lure it to a turf war with ruiner negigante and I also ate for felyne safeguard and took advantage of Fortitude boost.
