Lunagaron weakness Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak

Lunagaron is weak against a variety of elements including Fire, Thunder, and Dragon in that specific order. This means that the Fanged Wyvern is weakest against the Fire elemental weapons, followed by Thunder the second most, and Dragon as the third. Additionally, you should also avoid carrying Water or Ice elemental weapons as they have negligible to no effect on the monster.

Similar to most monsters in the game, the Lunagaron’s weakest part is its head. For this reason, you should be looking to attack this area whenever you get the chance. However, Lunagaron is incredibly agile, which can make it extremely difficult for Hunters to continuously strike the monster’s weak part.

In order to keep Lunagaron from moving, be sure to strike the monster whenever ice covers its body. This will shatter after a set amount of damage has been done, giving you a few precious seconds to hit its weak points when it has toppled over.
