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.

          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.

                  His pin can kill you, don't know what kind of bullcrap these people are on, but I've died three times to that God forsaken pin.

                    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.

                      You have to respect your Hunter’s durability. We all faint from time to time and always stand back up without dying. 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)

                        it took the 4 of us 39 minutes to slay this guy. I mean, granted we're all not BiS engame geared, that's some serious effort that we had to put in to capture this guy.
