Shogun Ceanataur Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak: Weakness, armor, weapons, materials & more

Shogun Ceanataur in the Lava Caverns Monster Hunter Rise: SunbreakCapcom

Knowing Shogun Ceanataur’s weakness in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak will give you a huge advantage over this crafty crustacean. After all, beating this gigantic crab will enable you to forge powerful Shogun Ceanataur weapons and armor. 

Just like Daimyo Hermitaur, Shogun Ceanataur also returns in the Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak expansion. However, unlike its cousin, this colossal crab is both quicker and far more deadly. If its lightning-fast claw swipes weren’t scary enough, this monster also has the ability to inflict Hunters with Bleed.

When Bleed is active, players will take damage whenever they move and attack, which makes Shogun Ceanataur a particularly tricky adversary. Combine this with its water jet attack, bone-crunching claw swipes, and speedy movements — and you have a recipe for a fierce fight.

Shogun Ceanataur weakness Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak

Shogun Ceanataur fighting Ludroth in Monster Hunter Rise: SunbreakCapcom
Shogun Ceanataur has returned in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak.

Shogun Ceanataur is weak against Thunder, Blast, and Fire-type weapons and ammo types. This means hunters should take weapons with the above elements to inflict as much damage as possible during the fight. 

Avoid using Dragon elemental types as Shogun Ceanataur is completely immune, while it also has a strong resistance to Water. Just like with Daimyo Hermitaur, we recommend focusing your attacks on Shogun Ceanataur’s claws as breaking them will cause the creature to topple over, giving you the opportunity to hit its head.

Lastly, weapons with piercing damage should attack the monster’s shell as once enough damage has been done, it will break, exposing a weak point that can be hit for massive amounts of damage.
