      In these comments, elitists with the brain power of a Rajang complaining that it's too easy. The rest, sensible people.

        What a embarrassment of the Monster Hunter series. How can you go from one of the hardest boss ever made in the series to this brain dead fight that even an unborn fetus could beat? And what is your reward for casualizing the game? People will complain about how easy Rajang is and how WE lied to the newfriends. You like that don't you? You like to hype up the monster then disappoint us with easy brain dead fight that every casual can first try.

          amazing move from capcom, force people to use their stupid clutch claw if they don't want a 50% damage cut, and then add a monster anti-clutch-claw ....

            The fight is actually pretty fun, just one BS move, that goddamn Super Saiyan AOE slam that is super fast, only thing that one shots me. and it was ONLY USED ON ME. Not even the IG user who was constantly getting hit had that move used on them... God. F@#$ing. Damnit. I hate that move.

              Rajang is a disappointment as expected from nu-MH. How will we ever be compared to Dark Souls ever again? F uck Capcom, f uck Ryozo but most importantly f uck pseudo censorship.

                My recommendation for LS users is you need to use ice weapons since this will drain its health much faster. Also if you hit its tail enough you can flinch it out of its “rampage” mode. It will hit harder and it will be easier for your attacks to deflect off its arms.

                  He is mighty difficult for some, and even match for others, yet to those having trouble. Don't give up! Y'all got this, regardless of your chosen weapon. YOU WILL PULL THROUGH AND SUCCEED!!! NOW GO OUT THERE AND HUNT THAT BLOODY BASTARD BEAST APE DOWN!!!!!!! CHAAAAAAARRRRGGGE!!!!!

                    If you're using melee weapons, this monster is bull*****to fight. There are almost no openings, his attacks do way too much damage, his arms can become resistant to purple sharpness, and he can grab you off him when you clutch claw. MHW was my first Monster Hunter game, so I had never faced Rajang before, but this thing is so rage inducing that I can't physically understand why anyone would find it fun.

                      I just sa a stream where one guy keep getting hit and ran out of potions against Rajang but because restocking potions is such a broken mechanic that he brute-forced the fight. What a joke of a game! How can you die if you have unlimited healing items?
