Brachydios Type: Brute Wyvern Know them. Respect them. Hunt them. The world of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is teeming with monsters that inhabit land, sea and air, including 30 new species and subspecies sure to test your might. Monsters range from small and relatively harmless to awe-inspiring and lethal. Discover more about the kinds of creatures you can expect to encounter as you explore the vast and varied terrains that await each and every hunter who heeds the call of the wild. But beware – with every mountain path you tread or lake you plunge into, you could find yourself face-to-face with a savage beast that is more than a match for any unprepared hunter. These pages hold details on just a few of the vicious creatures that roam these wild lands; study your enemy carefully and victory can be yours. Threat: These powerful monsters are fast on their feet and capable of smashing anything in their way, but they present an even bigger danger: slime that sticks to hunters and then explodes. Rathian Type: Flying Wyvern Threat: Barioth Type: Flying Wyvern Threat: Volvidon Type: Fanged Beast Threat: Capable of spitting balls of paralysing fluid or curling into tight balls and rolling over unwary hunters, Volvidons are definitely threats to be reckoned with. Fire-breathing female wyverns, also known as the “Queens of the Land”. With powerful legs and poison-secreting tail spikes, they hunt mainly on the ground. Sometimes seen preying as a pair, Rathian co-operate well with Rathalos. Wyverns that rule the eternally frozen Tundra. Barioths use their tusks and spiked scales to move freely atop the slippery ice: this ability makes them very difficult to keep up with. Qurupeco Uragaan Type: Bird Wyvern Threat: Type: Brute Wyvern Threat: Brute wyverns that feed on ore, using their mighty jaws to crush bedrock to powder. They cleverly affix rocks and ore to their hides with lava, then cast them about, using vibrations to make them explode. Will sometimes drop ore. Gobul Type: Leviathan Threat: Boasts strong camouflage skills and powerful neurotoxins. Poor swimmers, Gobuls conceal themselves by imitating plants, attracting prey with their luminescent lures. They love frogs. Bird wyverns with unique plumage. Well known for using their thoracic vocal organs to imitate other monsters’ calls, first summoning them, then using the distraction to flee. Spits a dangerous combustible body fluid. Royal Ludroth Type: Leviathan Threat: Royal Ludroths use their sponge-like manes to absorb water and prevent drying out on land. Once the sponge loses moisture, they attempt to re-enter the water. They also spew mucus to trip up their prey. Bow For the skilled hunter, the bow’s potential is unmatched. Use a range of arrow coatings and attack from a distance with unparalleled accuracy. Tools of the Trade If your hunt is successful and you manage to slay a monster, you can carve the body and take from it precious resources that can be used to create great and wondrous weapons, armour and items – all of which you will need to hunt the strongest monsters. Each weapon fits into one of 12 weapon classes, and you can create a huge number of weapons with the spoils of victory. Choose and master your favourite weapon type to become the ultimate hunter. Gunlance A large arm-mounted cannon teamed with a huge lance, capable of unbelievable close-range damage. Dual Blades Lightning-fast twin blades ideal for fast, fluid strikes. Master the rhythm of attacking and dodging and monsters will fall. Switch Axe This incredible weapon changes between an axe and a sword on command. Demonise While your blades are drawn, press the R Button to enter a special state that increases your attack power at the expense of stamina. Heavy Bowgun A powerful ranged weapon with enhanced defensive capabilities, its biggest drawback is its weight. Hunting Horn An enormous weapon that allows the user to play musical notes. Stringing notes together into certain melodies grants hunters beneficial statistic boosts. Hammer A melee weapon that sacrifices defence to focus purely on offence. Charge up its power to unleash a variety of techniques that will leave monsters reeling. Light Bowgun A lighter firearm that showers enemies with bullets from long range. Can be adapted for support by changing its ammunition type. Weight Difference The different types of Bowgun will affect their user’s behaviour in a number of ways. For example, the Heavy Bowgun’s weight reduces its user’s movement speed, while the Light Bowgun allows rapid-fire shots. Hit A Home Run The Hammer’s Windup Smashes will change depending on how long they’re charged. You can continue to move about freely as your weapon charges, but be aware that your stamina gauge will also decrease while you charge. Lance Sword and Shield A basic style that employs both a sword and a shield. Popular for its flexibility in adapting to many different situations and for its high manoeuvrability. With the advantage of an impenetrable shield, strike your foe down with your long, deadly fang from afar. Only Masters of the Block-Advance Can be Called True Lancers! Great Sword Possesses the greatest destructive power and the longest reach out of all weapons, and can be used to block in place of a shield. The Block-Advance can come in handy in a wide variety of situations. You can even combat monster breath with a Block-Advance Approach: Shield Attack mid-thrust! Long Sword With as much beauty as strength, this long sword slices through steel like paper. A direct hit with the long sword increases the spirit gauge. Master the Charged Slash The Charged Slash, which builds up power before unleashing it all at once, is a powerful technique only available to Great Sword wielders. However, be aware that while it deals incredible damage, it leaves you defenceless while charging. Spirit Roundslash Pull off a Spirit Roundslash when the gauge is red and hit your foe with all your might. Hunt, Carve, Forge Items strewn across the hunting fields are treasure for hunters. If you see a gathering icon above your character’s head, you’ll know that there are materials there just waiting to be collected. You can also mine, fish and farm to receive invaluable materials for improving your weapons, armour and items. Craft items, weapons and armour from foraged items and carved monsters, with thousands of new items and equipment pieces to create. Each blade forged can bring you a step closer to becoming a hunter whose exploits will pass on into legend. Elementary Many monsters are weak to certain elemental attacks, but the damage you deal depends on the body part you’re targeting. Watch the monster’s reaction carefully to judge the best part to attack. It’s possible to purchase certain items, but a true hunter knows the value of a created item or finely-crafted weapon. Upgrade Your Weapons With the right components, your weapons can be made even more powerful. Increase their sharpness to cut through tougher monster hides or add additional attributes such as fire, lightning or even poison damage. Construct Your Armour Armour offers more than just raw defensive capabilities: a matching set can add useful traits such as attack increases, enhanced health and stamina, or the ability to detect your enemies from afar. Break off a Piece Deal enough damage to monsters’ horns, tails and crests and you may be able to break them off; a vital skill to master if you wish to get the most out of each battle.
