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 during rampage mode(red arms), will ignore Pitfall Traps when not enraged 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.

      I thought might give some tips to people who are struggling with this monster. Basically, the best thing you can do is try to bring his health to zero while at the same time keeping yours above zero. Two good ways to do this are to dodge his attacks and also attack him. Hopefully this was helpful. Good luck, and happy hunting!

      • Rajangs have some attacks where they are immobile for a short time afterwards. Be patient and look out for these moment and then strike. That's pretty much all there is to this fight. For a long time Greatsword was my weapon of choice for them but shelling Gunlance was even better. Negating the thick armor. Just don't get too greedy.

          it's retarded that he has two attacks with the same animation before
          using a bow you have to dodge towards him when he spits the electricity in front of him but when he does the dive bomb you have to dodge backwards or to the side
          he's also so small and fast you often can't follow him unless you're using a mouse because the analog stick literally doesn't turn fast enough
          get too greedy with attacks and he'll usain bolt sprint towards you and damage you with his persistent hitbox because apparently hunters are fatally allergic to rajang fur
          it's not even difficult it's just really annoying, you get hit because of BS reasons or because you got greedy which only makes you roll your eyes at best

          melee on the other hand he's relatively easy

          raging brachy is a 10x better fight than the yellow monke

            I beat it in solo!
            Here is my story.

            First I tried shooting it with a light bowgun... It didn't work.(reloading leaves me open too much)

            Then I came back with an ice bow... It didn't work (took too long)

            Lastly I used a high elemental jewels with the velkhana SnS my skills were Max evade window and Max evade extender vitality 2, medicine 2 and gobbler 2. It worked so well that it even destroyed a tempered furious rajang with 5 minutes remaining on the clock and no carts!

            That's a win!

                Me seeing Rajang in Monter Hunter Stories:
                "This is the stupidest looking monster I've seen yet."

                Me after fighting Furious Rajang in Iceborne:
                "I TAKE IT ALL BACK."

                  Was doing his quest and saw him having a turf was with ruiner. This one time today he actually made ruiner nergi retreated. First time seeing nergi losing a turf war... must be the 3rd or even 4th form of this super saiyan.

                    This is my favorite fight in the game honestly. Not so much the tempered furious though. Using greatsword against him is super fun to me especially solo. It might be harder with other weapons though

                      I like how it's called "furious rajang". They probably needed to call it, and I quote: "mad angry infuriated irate raging fuming enraged thundering wrathful berserk out-of-any-control rajang"

                        I have about 14 monsters I haven't killed yet, but so far Furious Rajang is the hardest so far. You get the quest pretty quick after Iceborne's story, so it's not like I was using end-game gear. He carted me twice and I was really scared on my last life (even running to Ruiner Nergigante for free damage). Even though I've only done it once, I believe the trick to this thing is to go Kirin-mode, you come in for 1 attack, smack his face, get out... repeat until stunned or a good opening appears. Also, Evader Extender is amazing for this (if not literally every monster).

                            Barely managed to beat him once by sheer luck with less than 5 minutes left. Never again seriously fk this fight its zero fun and when you do win it just dosnt feel good, it feels cheap

                              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.

                                                  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

                                                            This was one of the most infuriating hunts to do solo, but I did it first try after failing in multiplayer so, so many times. All I can say is ranged weapons are far easier to use compared to melee (Insect Glaive vs. Bow), watch out for his two new attacks that do insane damage in terms of 'wha-' and surprisingly his laser is one of the safest moves (if not the safest) to get in damage, and if you are going to do it solo, PLEASE use Shieldspire tool on your palico, it distracts Rajang and allows you to heal and prepare (or get in safe damage using range!) for round 300 while the stooge takes like 100 hits, and if you didn't unlock the spire in the main story or get it up to level 15, do that beforehand.

Going as far as taking a f*cking laser to the face and just walking it off like it was nothing while drinking Comission Brand energy-drink. We’re only able to feel pain, but we never get injured or die. We’ve hunted everything that can be viewed as a f*cking life-ender. And we took soooooooooo many blows that should’ve killed us so many times. No wonder we’re the best f*cking hunter of the Comission, if not the Guild, if not the entire f*cking world. We’re just Rocky Balboa;”This ain’t about how hard you can hit, its about how hard you can get hit. About how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. That’s how winnin’ is done.” (Please don’t mind if I got the quote wrong or something... its been a while since I last saw any of those movies)

I don’t mean easier in a bad way, not at all. Get off your game for a second and Furious’ll end you in no time. However, the introduction of a new small handful of ranged moves hurts the usually untouchable Ranged weapons, but gives a cunning Melee user the time to strike. The endlag after these new moves are just what we needed to make Rajang the balance between crazy difficult and too easy. Also, hitting the head to get out of rage is SO much nicer! I was never able to knock base Rajang out of rage because the tail takes up 3 pixels. Hitting the head is far riskier, but more rewarding, and I want horn breaks anyways. Still hate base, but Furious improved my liking of this monster :)

                                                                      • Anonymous

Not only do you get the powerful maximum might secret at 2 pieces, but at 4 pieces you get Heroics secret which gives 40% attack boost at low health when completely maxed. That right there is dangerous. 40% damage on top of reliable affinity boost is devastating. absolutely risky, but devastating.

Rajang has a xeno attack where it sends energy into the ground and detonates it in a cone in front of it. Also the pin can no longer be escaped from like normal rajang. Bring lifepowders. Additionally Rampage mode can only be stopped early by targeting the head now instead of the tail. Be extremely cautious in this scenario.

                                                                                I've saw a video where this dirty monkey does a dirty move, that when he's dying he punches one last time AND ONE SHOTS YOU IF IT HITS. Is this for real or misinformation? If so I'll be extra paranoid of what I'll be doing so I don't get stuck in animation when he's dying and end up carting...

                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                  Expecting to be given the thumbs down into the abyss, but I have to ask, what the heck is this guy going to be like? Base Rajang can already smack a Savage Jho upside the head. He’s got flinch counter, stun counter, a near guaranteed enraged pin hit (not the starting of the pin, the point blank punch against the wall), tremor moves, near one-shots with high defense and elemental countering, minimal end lag, Base Raj feels a bit unfair, but hey, we can go through it. But this... thing? Two confirmed pins, likely more, probably retains the flinch/stun wall rebound counters, arms in super state more often, can probably still throw us off of the arms, a triple beam strike... I understand a challenge, I live for it, but come on now. Rajang doesn’t feel “challenging”, and not in the “haha scrubs git gud” way because let’s face it, I’m a fiver, not my job or right to try and judge other’s skill level, but because the key to Rajang for me is to disconnect yourself from the fight, attacking only during very precise moments, which really doesn’t feel that fun IMO. It’s difficult, yes, but less as in “learn to overcome a new threat in your own style” as it is “play this way, this one way, maybe another sometimes, or die.” This seems like it’ll be worse, which sucks because I’ve only heard praise of the old Raj’s and their actually challenging nature that proves a hunter’s worth, but rather than a learning experience, this just seems like it’ll be another game of “spot the exploit or get banana slamma’d”. I want to feel a sense of success when beating this monster. When I beat base Raj the first time, I just felt... empty. Every other monster has made me feel a sense of accomplishment upon beating it, like I learned and grew. Raj left me feeling almost sad. I did it, but only via a cheap tactic. It felt wrong. But hey, might be different, and the fight is the most fun I’ll have in the game. It might truly be that test of power and experience I want to see. Only time will tell.

Or are they a separate craft tree? I'd wager on the former, and hope to see some interesting improvements.
