Tips to defeat Barroth in Monster Hunter Rise
Players should focus more on defending with the monster. Since the monster is slow, you will have enough time to attack. Don’t attack him head-on because his head is blocked. Just try to attack him from the front when using a blunt weapon. This should be the weapon of choice for this battle. Aim for its forearm and tail, because this is its weakest point.
During the entire battle, he is covered in mud most of the time, so it is difficult to cause more damage. But to solve this problem, use elemental weapons of water and fire. When it is covered with mud, it will be weaker than water, and when it is clean it will be weaker than fire. We recommend that you keep hitting it until the mud clears to make it more vulnerable.
But this vacancy is short, because he will roll into the mud and be coveredagain. The dirt will stay on the ground for a while so be careful not to step on the dirt as this will slow down your mobility. Try to avoid all his attacks, because he is very powerful and each attack will cause some serious damage.
