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 BrachydiosRaging Brachydios, a ferocious and highly aggressive variant of the explosive Brachydios species, dominates the volcanic regions with unrelenting force. Recognizable by its searing red coloration, Raging Brachydios possesses an unparalleled fury, infusing its attacks with explosive power. This relentless monster is characterized by its explosive slime, which leaves a volatile trail in its wake, creating a battlefield of imminent danger. 


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 than 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 monster's 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 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.


MHW Raging Brachydios Attacks and Movesets

Raging Brachydios performs the following attacks:

  • Explosive Punches: Raging Brachydios delivers powerful punches infused with explosive slime, leaving behind explosive puddles on the ground. Hunters need to be cautious of the lingering danger even after the initial strikes.
  • Slime Slam: Raging Brachydios slams its body onto the ground, causing explosive slime eruptions in the surrounding area. Evading the slam area is crucial to avoid taking damage and being covered in slime.
  • Leap and Slam: Raging Brachydios leaps into the air and performs a body slam, creating shockwaves and explosive slime eruptions upon impact. Evading to the side or finding cover is essential to avoid getting hit by this aerial assault.
  • Triple Explosive Pound: Raging Brachydios executes a sequence of three consecutive explosive punches, creating a hazardous trail of slime. Evading or blocking effectively is crucial to avoid being caught in the explosive onslaught.
  • Tail Slam and Explosion: Raging Brachydios slams its tail onto the ground, causing a powerful explosion. Staying clear of the tail slam area is essential to prevent taking damage from the ensuing blast.
  • Explosive Charge: Raging Brachydios charges at hunters with explosive slime covering its body, leaving a trail of hazardous puddles. Evading or using terrain effectively is necessary to avoid getting hit by this charging attack.
  • Explosive Aura: Raging Brachydios may enter a state where its body radiates an explosive aura, making all its attacks more potent. Hunters need to be extra vigilant during this heightened state of aggression.
  • Area Denial Explosion: Raging Brachydios performs a move that covers a significant portion of the battlefield with explosive slime. Hunters must be aware of the dangerous zones and carefully navigate the terrain.
  • Enraged State Combos: When enraged, Raging Brachydios may chain together multiple attacks seamlessly, requiring hunters to anticipate and adapt to its intensified assault patterns.
  • Explosive Burst Finisher: Raging Brachydios concludes some of its attack sequences with a powerful explosive burst. Hunters need to be prepared for these finishing moves and plan their evasive maneuvers accordingly.

      You thought blue Brachy was bad? Poor of you, that was the baby version, get ready for daddy Brachy going BOOM BOOM

      • Maybe I'm crazy and missed it on the page but never see anyone mention it.

        In 1st phase (sometimes second) bringing FlashFly cage you can knock him twice with a SINGLE boom bug cage. Free easy damage, he also goes far as hell being slinger shot for walls

          Fight was challenging to learn, but fun as all hell.
          Did NOT expect a pit fight arena at the very end, truly turned an average 'variant fight' into a spectacle. Gave off some serious Metal Gear Rising vibes too

          • Anonymous

            I despise the last stand. Absolutely hate it. Of the 10s and 10s of attempts, this phase has stopped me defeating him. It is utterly unfun.

            • Anonymous

              Got back to monster hunter, challenged this guy again. Man, its a good fight. Openings are tricky. Try to note which hand is punching and which side gets nuked, you can actually come in during certain attacks, as long as you cover a safe side. When he does his explosive punch walk, you can clutch to his leg or tail, tenderize or get that. Im running fire res against him for the fireblight. My hammer is always rolling from his swipes . Im finding that I just naturally roll out blast if I attack it and dodge what it throws. Its so aggressive, that also helped my dps since rolling for the sake of curing blast is a waste of time. I definitely suggest having augmented gear against this guy.

                It's not that bad to kill this monster but if you just want him's materials just bring partbraker 3, bonk his head and you got all you need

                  It's honestly a wonder just how much the Lance trivializes many monster hunts. Raging Brachy is no exception. Only carted to it once during his nuke that I stupidly fumbled around and failed to dodge. Health3, AntiBlast3, Guard5, GuardUp, Weakness Exploit3, Handicraft5, Def7, as much Crit as possible, as much Atk as possible, rank11 Rajang lance, Damascus Armor set (the sheer amount of slots makes this set amazing for Grinding Lands and playing super safe with new/unknown hunts. Because he's so damn aggressive, counter clawing is the name of the game and really protects ya from most hits. Took me ~20 mins to take it out first time, and that's with the Lance QoL mod I use that so desperately ups the MVs of all the Lance's moveset on top of giving better elemental damage because lolelementaldmginmhwilol (sans the bow with its retarded good elemental damage moveset). And no, I don't play multiplayer, period; not even raid battles. Solo all the way, baby. Been a solo hunter since Freedom Unite, and will forever be a solo hunter.

                    Weirdly, I find the second phase significantly easier than the first one. Sure, the big area explosions can absolutely nuke you if you aren't careful, but because his limbs don't get slimed anymore and the explosive patches only blow up in the big boom, it becomes much more predictable.

                    • Anonymous

                      His damage and size are bullshit of the highest order. If he was normal size and did maybe 25% less damage it would actually be a fun fight but the way it is you basically cannot get any openings because all of his attacks reach across entire ****ing arena and deal 80% of your health.

                      But that's nothing new. It feels like the balance team in the later title updates Iceborne was more concerned about making the immortal gods of the speedrun community feel some pain for once rather than making actually fun encounters. I don't mind difficulty per se, I really liked the Raging Brachydios in 4U even though I sucked at fighting him, but not like this. Not when a monster doesn't even give me a chance to observe it's behavior because it's so absurdly deadly even from the first second.

                        Honestly the first phase is too annoying. The damage is to high, the hitboxes are horrendous, and explosions from certain attacks can reach you from other side of the map. However, the second phase is amazing. The phase transition is amazing. It is the first monster, who when backed into the corner goes sicko mode and rages so hard that it even can hit itself with an explosive attack. The atmosphere of the last phase is awesome too,
                        At first it was like 6-7/10 now it is solid 9

                          So I’m back with some more tips. I would HIGHLY recommend using a water or ice weapon. That’s of course assuming you want to get rid of the flashpoint slime. I personally don’t like to get rid of the slime on his arm because when he has it it means less mines in the arena. When it comes to fighting this guys I would say take caution because he hits extremely hard and is really fast. He has a lot of tricks up his sleeve so just be warned . When you get to the last stage it usually gets better there. But when he does his supernova RUN away from him. The damage when he hits you with his fists is ridiculous. Well that’s it for now! Hope everyone has a blessed day! Happy Hunting!

                          • This beast was implemented after over almost a year of of Guiding Lands farming, gear optimization and the Safi'jiva siege. It's not meant to be fought at MR24! Get to MR100 first, feed the steam machine, upgrade your gear, get life regen on your weapon and you will succeed eventually. Your reward will be one of the best armor sets in the game so do your homeworks!

                              He is very fast and hits like a freight train so I would highly recommend taking defense boost for this fight. If you haven’t been taking health boost during Iceborne now is the time to take it. You are going to need around 1000+ Defense so I recommend Shara or Damascus. If you have the option though take Alatreon armor. Always take a water or ice weapon! You want to keep the slime of his arms! I also recommend evade window and/or the evade extender.
                              He is tough and don’t be surprised if you cart once. Once you get to the nest he isn’t that bad. You have to be careful because he is very good at chaining his attacks. He also can trick you into thinking he is going to start moving forward while smashing or just doing one punch and moving to the other side of the area. I carted to this many times. Oh you might also want to take attack boost because he has a lot of health. Remember he is tough and he will take many tries. Personally this is one of my favorite fights but I know people don’t like him. Don’t give up and happy hunting!

                                my first few attempts were horrible and unfun and then randomly I found myself in the final phase and won with only minor complications; had less health than I expected, although I don't know what I was expecting since it still took 21 minutes
                                I still think it's incredibly annoying that neutralising the flashpoint slime creates an explosion shortly after, you can get cheated out of a proper topple punish because of it

                                  I'm surprised i got him on my first attempt considering the only preparation i did was get a frostfang barioth weapon, i feel what really helped was rolling in during attacks and just doing as much damage as i could while underneath him as its relatively safe there, but that could just be switch axe stuff

                                  • I think i've died to this guy more times than i've died to Malenia. He geniunely makes me want to stop playing the game entirely (i won't tho because i love it) and it's because i just feel like i'm not really doing any mistakes while fighting him: i play very safely, remove the slime from his hands whenever i can and i usually just die because bullshit hitboxes on some attacks or just because some random slime puddle he put on top of lava (thus making it near invisible) 23 years ago blew up behind me and nearly one shot me. I've even tried sending an SOS flare, something which i've literally never done before in the game but nobody came. i like challenging fights but it's because i feel like i improve with each failure, while this one just feels depressing. Do you guys have any tips? i already use blast resist 3 and i can't imagine anyone beating him without it. I guess i'll try fully devoting my build to health/defense as i've seen it work for some people online...

                                      This guy alone made me switch from GS to LS. No matter what I did, just could not survive. These hitboxes are insane, but persevere hunters, we'll make it through this. We always have.

But then I've soloed every monster at some later point. This guy left (and whatever comes next), and I just get instagimped. Died twice before getting SOS help, died again immediately. I guess I should go for some blast resistance, maybe even defense. Go for durability over dmg..

                                                  From what I experienced as an elemental CB user, I equipped my palico a sleep status weapon and a flashfly cage gadget, and just do an SAED on Brachy's head whenever he sleeps and flinching him with Boombug and Thunderbug cage as much as possible. He slept on me 2 times then went into his area for his last phase. Then I went back to camp to restock and change my palico gadget to a meowlotov then tenderized his arm and ordered a Meowcano.

                                                          2) Using a water or ice weapon is OBLIGATORY. They make that slime fall. When the slime falls, it's attacks no longer explode. Though the dropped slime will explode on the ground, be careful. I used Noble Ana Palas. (upgraded Velkhana SnS)
                                                          3) Dodge through the attacks as the wiki says, try not to dodge outside. And use your whole invulnerability window, stay lying on the ground if you must because he chains his attacks mostly.
                                                          4) Blast resistance is not obligatory but it helps.
                                                          5) Defense is not the main concern if you can dodge, I used Teostra B+ and had around 850 defense. Stock up on fire resistance though, as it's slime incinerates you on top of exploding.
                                                          6) You can't use traps in the last phase so try to use them early on. The damage windows they create can really shorten the fight.
                                                          7) Try to keep your HP full. An explosion can take around 90 HP. I got carted once because of that. Try to fit some Health Boost in your build.
                                                          8) Temporal Mantle really helps. Fireproof Mantle + and Immunity Mantle (+ if you can) are good choices too as they help with blasts.
                                                          9) Try the Coalescence skill. It grealy boosts your attack and elemental damage after recovering from Blastscourge. I had a Phoenix Jewel 3, even level 1 Coalescence helped a lot.
                                                          10) Stamina Thief is another great skill, especially for the last phase as tiring him out is much easier than clutch claw or mounting.
                                                          11) He's not always enraged in the last phase, try waiting and dodging a bit for him to calm down and slam his head to the walls. When dodging, try to get all his slime in a half of the area. Try to move to the other half of the are when it makes them explode and damages itself. Rinse and repeat. Spreading the slime all over will make it harder.
                                                          12) Slinger is a lifesaver. Try to get slinger ammo, it usually drops slinger bombs from clutch clawing. When aimed at the head, it's enough to make him flinch for a moment. And in the last phase, try to use the crystalbursts on the ground. They make him flinch at the head too. If not for the slinger bombs, I had failed.
                                                          13) STOCK UP ON POTIONS

                                                            Just trap spam him then it’s easy also you can always knock him into a wall twice. Once you get the hang of it he is very easy

                                                              This fight would absolutely be bearable if it wasn't for his floor slime taking up half your health. Sucks for lancers. Tip: tool specialist 2-3 and fireproof mantle. Slot in gobbler in the mantle and bring crafting mats for 12 max pots. You can also bring blast resist if you plan on staying under him like lancers do. This will make the fight bearable to farm.

                                                                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!)

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

                                                                            give a thumbs up for raging brachydios and give a thumbs down for frost fang barioth

                                                                              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

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                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.

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

With some decos my stats were max def, max blast resist, regen max, health max, vaal set bonus, stun proof, max fire res, max part breaker. Vit and tempo mantle. Legiana ls. A bit of advice for solo pro's is to prio def L at canteen and adamant pills. Also bring comb mats for max potions. I also solo run safi with same set.
