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.

    • 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).
