Understanding Magma Almudron’s weaknesses and elemental advantages in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak gives you a massive edge when fighting the serpent-like fire monster. Hunting Magma Almudron provides players arguably one of the strongest elemental weapons in the game.

Magma Almudron debuts for the first time in the Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak expansion. The monster shoots out fire and wields a large rock on its tail. Attacking the tail can cause the rock to explode, causing damage. Compared to the normal Almudron, the fire version fights far more aggressively with, well, flames.

Although farming this monster can get annoying really fast, the weapons are definitely worth the time investment. This guide will dive into many of the need-to-knows — including the weaknesses of Magma Almudron and the rewards you can get.

Magma Almudrond debuts in Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak.

Magma Almudron is weak against  Water, Ice, and Lightning weapons and ammo types. And in that order. This means Ice type weapons will deal the most damage, Ice the second most, and Lightning third. Avoid bringing Fire and Dragon elemental weapons on your quest. For ailments, Waterblight seems to be the best vulnerability.

As with most monsters, Magma Almudron’s head is the weakest point of the body. Try to focus your attacks on it in order to stun the monster and inflict as much DPS as possible. But stay wary, as this monster moves around very frequently, with practically its entire body serving as a hit box.

Hitting the rock around its tail is a great way to stagger Magma Almudron. The explosion from breaking the rock creates opportunities to apply DPS thereafter.

If properly upgraded with equipment, Magma Almudron shouldn’t one shot you — assuming you’re playing melee. So for less experienced players, just take the fight nice and slow.

Magma Almudron location

Magmadron can be found in Lava Caverns and Lava Forest.

Magma Almudron is located in the Lava Caverns and the Flooded Forest. Keep in mind, the Lava caverns is the optimal spot to fight it, as the Flooded Forest quest is part of a three monster chain hunt.

It’s important to note that this monster is only available in Master Rank quests. This means Hunters will need to purchase the Sunbreak expansion if they wish to hunt it.

To fight Magma Almudron, you must be at least MR 4. This places the fight right in the middle of the base MR quests.

Magma Almudron armor set

The Magmadron Armor stats are mediocre, unfortunately.

The Magma Almudron armor set is geared maximizing damage when low on health, while also increasing guard effectiveness

In all honestly the armor isn’t that great, but makes for passable layered armor. The aesthetics are pretty nice, giving the original Almudron armor a run for its money.

For meta players, it’s recommended to avoid using this armor set as it can’t compete with other armor sets’ skill. One pro going for the armor set is the decoration slows, which definitely allow for more customization. But frankly, there are still better options that provide stronger skills.
