      From what I remember, AT Kulve Taroth will have a new frenzied mode that you have to achieve in order to get those new rainbow rewards. Basically, the AT element in the fight doesn't manifest unless you break the gold off of the horns.

            Out of all the lbg ammo types to use I found slicing to deal yellow damage but low numbers, sticky seemed to be the best ammo to use to dump damage into the monster, ice and lightning deal roughly the same damage amount with white damage, if you use dragon shots wait for kulve to be stunned/laying down and aim at the tip of the skull by the base of the horns - this ammo is great at chewing the horn plating off, and if you use wyvern then wait for kulve to puff its chest out, dash forward and fire and dodge right at the last second with evade extender.

                When you battle her she’s kind of easy but when you break her gold dress now she’s mad and fast and will melt you in her next dress
