How to Track Down and Hunt the Tetranadon in Monster Hunter Rise
As the Tetranadon is amphibious, there are two main places players should look for them. This includes the Shrine Ruins and Frost Islands. Along with its natural habitat, this creature exposes itself to danger when eating. The best time for a player to strike the creature is directly after it has eaten. This is because the Tetranadon becomes incredibly bloated after eating other creatures whole. The bloating causes the creature to become slow and stand up on its hind legs. However, while this grants the player a good chance for attacks, it won’t last. Once the player has attacked the Tetranadon, it will force itself to throw up the contents of its stomach.
With this noted, players should think about what types of weapons to use against the creature. The Tetranadon is weakest to Cutting damage but is also quite affected by Blunt and Ammo damage as well. Players should remember to avoid using Water damage as these creatures are completely immune to it. Outside of that, Thunder is the most useful type of elemental damage. Players can also give the creature an ailment or a trap. The best ailments to use are Paralysis, Blast, and Thunderblight. The best traps to use against the Tetranadon are the Pitfall Trap, Shock Trap, Flash Bomb, and Dung Bomb.
Lastly, players should focus on the soft spots of the creature when attacking. If attacking the Tetranadon after a heavy meal, they should focus on long-chained and heavy attacks across the creature’s stomach. Otherwise, the creature will be on all fours and quite a bit faster and players should focus on attacking their head.
