Raging Brachydios is a Large Monster in Monster Hunter World (MHW). 猛り爆ぜるブラキディオス in Japanese. It is a variant of Brachydios.

 

A Brachydios variant that is much larger than the normal species. The slime on its body will activate over time and detonate.

Raging Brachydios Details & Locations

 

Raging Brachydios Combat Info

  • Kinsect Extracts:
    • Red: Head/Arms/Tip of tail.
    • Orange: Torso/Body.
    • White: Hindlegs.
  • Normal mode: Permanently covered in Yellow Slime that explodes faster then the regular green slime. The slime on its hands, head and tail will over time switch to red, the so called "Flashpoint Slime" Once Red, its attacks will trigger explosions pretty much instantly. The Flashpoint Slime can be washed off by hitting it with melee attacks, water element attacks or watermoss. However, watch your step, as this will cause the slime to fall off and detonate.

  • Enraged mode: Indicated by a short Pause and a Roar. All Areas of its body immediately switch to Flashpoint Slime. Glows stronger and coats area with slime, areas of the body will glow red including arms, head, shoulders, back , and the end of its tail. This is also a warning sign that its attacks will cause explosions on impact. Hitting slime lodged on its body with Watermoss or Slinger Bombs can dislodge them.  Watch out as this will leave an explosive Slime Puddle underneath the part, that explodes after roughly 2 Seconds

  • Recommended Skills: Blast Resistance, Health BoostEarplugs, Tool Maintenance, Ice Attack, Evade Distance, Evade Window

  • Best Specialized Tools: Fireproof Mantle (if the player does not have level 3 Antiblast), Temporal Mantle, Evasion Mantle.

  • Best Items: Health items including Max Potions, Lifepowders, and Dust of Life to heal you and your teammates, Cool Drink to prevent heat damage from the volcanic area and reduce the heat damage caused by the heated slime secreted by the monster during its final battle phase. Traps for DPS opportunities, Flash Pods for creating windows to heal/sharpen/retreat.
  • It's recommended to use weapons that deal mhw-ice-damage_s Ice Damage as it's the monsters greatest elemental weakness.

  • Sticky Ammo 3 is very effective against it especially if playing in a team. The sticky ammo will knock down the monster and stun it allowing teammates to safely attack.

  • Flash Pods are very useful to create an opening for healing, or stopping an incoming attack. However, be warned as with all master rank monsters they gain  resistance to being flashed. The resistance will go away after a while.

  • Once Raging Brachydios retreats to the Nest Area of the Volcanic Region, head back to camp to stock up on Ammo and Potions. Once the first player enters the Area, Raging Brachydios will perform a flashy move, that blocks the exits of the Area, preventing any escape (even by Farcaster). Traps are also disabled, including the Palico Thundertrap (yes, they patched it). The Area can still be entered through its southern entrance.

  • Raging Brachydios' mechanics completely change in this phase. Instead of just punching you, Raging Brachydios is mostly focused on spreading its completely released Flashpoint slime all over the Area. The slime deals much more damage on contact in this phase. Once a lot of slime is spread, the Raging Brachydios will roar (indicated by a camera Zoom-Out) detonating every puddle of slime in the room. The explosion is so violent it even damages the Raging Brachydios (84 Damage), which can be used to slay it for a good laugh.

  • As stated above, this monster is currently uncapturable and must be slain in order to complete the quest ....And My Rage for All, which is the only quest where it can be fought or encountered; there are no Raging Brachydios Investigations (though they have been announced to come with a future update).

  • It is best to make good use of the Clutch Claw and knock down the monster as often as possible

  • Due to the fact that Raging Brachydios is much larger than a regular Brachydios it becomes more of a threat, as its large size allows it to hit players much more easier due to its larger hit boxes.

  • Raging Brachydios has a similar move set to a regular Brachydios. However, it both has a more potent set of attacks and a few moves unique to the variant.

  • Specific Combat Tips

    • Unless you want to heal or retreat to get more Supplies, DON'T BACK UP. Raging Brachydios has three extremely long range attacks with large hitboxes and huge damage. Staying close to it and chipping away at its legs and fists is much safer. Unless you use ranged weapons, of course.

    • Don't dodge away from Raging Brachydios, dodge into it. Raging Brachydios moves forward with most attacks, so dodging through them is much safer than dodging away from them.

    • Raging Brachydios might be terrifying on the offense, but it doesn't have much health. Using a Pitfall Trap of Shock Trap early on will allow you to deal a large amount of damage, dramatically speeding up the fight. Raging Brachydios cannot be captured anyway, so using traps as a damaging tool is a good idea, though their effectiveness is greatly reduced after the third one.

  • Areas and their Advantages

    • Area 2 (Start)

      • This is where every Raging Brachydios hunt begins. It's not that great. Use the Scatternuts to execute the slinger burst, watch out for Raging Brachydios' punches and move on as fast as possible.

    • Area 3

      • It's rare that Raging Brachydios even stops here, it usually moves on to the next area if you deal enough damage early on. Use the massive Slide in the north of this Area to get some easy mounts and move on to the next area.

    • Area 5 (Middle Part)

      • You will be here quite some time if your damage isn't great. The Ledges are good for mounting or Dual Blades, as is the narrow slide you enter this area through. There are also several Poisoncups for poisoning and a paratoad, nitrotoads, and a sleeptoad; use all of this and beat up Raging Brachydios until it retreats to the Volcanic region.

    • Area 14 (End Phase)

      • Welcome to Hell! Don't forget your Cool Drink. This is where a large part of the fight is spent. Which is bad because there's no cover, lava everywhere and only one environmental aid in form of the volcano. Use the ledge in the room for mounts and lure Raging Brachydios to the active Volcano (you can tell it's activating by the floor shaking). Stand your ground and bully Raging Brachydios to its nest.

    • Area 15 (Last Stand)

      • If you managed to get this far, good work. The hardest part is behind you. Stock up on items before you enter though, just to be safe. Use the slope to maneuver around Raging Brachydios and the Flashpoint Slime, Avoid the Slimeprints as much as possible and enjoy the fireworks.

      Safi's Aquashot LBG is amazing in this fight for multiplayer

      Sticky bombs will knock him to the ground often (esp at the start when threshold is still fresh). You can heal teammates with recovery ammo 2 (which happens often and can mean the difference between a clutch or cart). And despite all of that, you still have access to your own paralysis and sleep ammos. If knockdowns are becoming rarer in the 1st volcanic area, that's a good time to cheese the traps (and please correct me if im wrong but trap paralysis has a different threshold/timer than regular paralysis, and vice versa). Then in the last area, paralysis and sleep can continue to CC him. All the while, your main DPS option can knock him with several shots even as the threshold goes higher.

      release 3 for two charges of sticky 3 before reload, and evade reload 2 is fast provided nothing scuffs you up on the 2nd evade (like those damnable ledges!)

              His element is blast, but the damage of blast is fire, heavy fire resistant gear is great, same for fire res mantle. Better to use elem meal L then take max potion, Blast resist won't help at all for explosions he detonate himself, like his special punches. Traps won't be place able last phase, best to spam him early on. Temporal mantle is great, theres many chances to wall bang him in this fight

                  who do you think would win this guy or frost fang barioth?
                  give a thumbs up for raging brachydios and give a thumbs down for frost fang barioth
                  be honest and if you give a thumbs down then just cause you dont like it im gonna think it a vote

                    First of all: In my opinion he's easier solo (and that's noobs opinion).
                    Second: Last area is the easiest. The slime no longer deals blastcourge but instead deals damage like lava in volcanic region does. Even his supernova isn't anything that will one shot you when you have at least 150 HP.
                    Attack his legs, it's extremely easy to exhaust or ko him this way. It is also hard to mount him so plan your mounts carefully
                    In lava region set some traps on the lava geyser
                    And one tip for glaive users: it's very easy to exhaust or ko him with descending thurst hitting his legs and fists

                      90% of the time (I didn't count the % part I am just wanna show how frequent it is) in the 3rd place where Raging Brachy goes which is in the lava area with the lava geyser that there would be 2 faints or more and my party would be down to 1 faint almost all the time in that area! And eventually someone dies in the last area sadly :( He is so difficult because not only that he is genuinely a challenge already but almost every time I fight with a random party theres always gonna be that someone who only has around 900 or 800 defense and thats why most of the time I failed the quest. Tips for Raging Brachy? well...
                      1. Bring ice/water elemental weapons
                      2. Have at least over 1000 defense! (But if your good at dodging then do whatever you want)
                      3. Every time you have blast courge roll about 6-7 times
                      4. bring cool drinks when your in the lava area
                      5. Flinch shot to wall for more damage and part break
                      6. In the last area he will close all the exist and you would fight him in that single area so before you fight if you have only little bit of healing or you have no cool drinks than go back to your camps to prepare.
                      7. Note that I don't really know about this but I think its true that in the last phase you can't use far caster to go back to camp you can only get carted.
                      8. For more info try checking the bottom comments. Ok thats all good luck :)

                        Up until the final phase, Raging Brachy isn't particularly different from normal Brachy, aside from a few things: slime falling off of attacked limbs (i.e., don't mash attack and prepare to roll at a moment's notice), its penchant for slime Shouryukens (which sometimes shoot fast-acting slime in a V shape), and its triple headbutt into tracking Shouryuken (DON'T roll towards Brachy for the final uppercut; either he'll follow your movement and nail you, or you'll get caught in the slime trail. Use lateral movement for the three headbutts, and run AWAY for the uppercut, Superman'ing if necessary). For the final phase, I highly recommend coming in with some sort of Earplug buffs (I personally use Shara Ishvalda's set + Mantles), as this will give you time to escape if Brachy does its detonation roar and you happen to be standing on explodo-lava. Since you no longer need to worry about slime exploding (aside from the roar), you can really just wail on him until he does his scream, escape/panic dive during the scream if you have Earplugs, and repeat. Of course, that detonation roar can easily wipe out an entire party of unaware randos, so it MIGHT be best to do this guy solo rather than with a PUG.

                          I failed so many times facing this mofo. Finally did it after 20ish hunts. If this monster was this hard, Dunno what it's like to face alatreon later...

                            Roll to the side to dodge, forward works of you are near his legs and can get to his back. Hits hard but is clumsy, letting an attack pass, keep near enough to smack him and withdraw quickly/ go to his side or back again is good. It’s dangerous to trade hits w it. Only combo if he is staggered/ attacking an ally and not facing you. Best to smash his head from the side. Lots of slime in front. Prep an evasion mantle when he calms down, you can safely clutch him and flinch shot to a wall. Or use it defensively for his rage state. Prep good gear vs blast
