Magma Almudron live in the Lava Caverns, manipulating rocks, unlike normal Almudron. They secrete a special liquid that melts the ground, allowing them to move freely through the earth.

Magma Almudron Elemental weakness in Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak

Thunder is the best element against Magma Almudron, followed closely by Fire. All damage locations are flat for each element, apart from the tail tip, as every element is exceptionally effective in hitting this location. However, it's not worth bringing a Water elemental weapon specifically to do extra damage at the tail tip.

Blunt damage is the best against Magma Almudron, so Hammers/Hunting Horns should get into the fray and purely focus on its head, with Ammo users backing them up. Those who inflict Cutting damage, focus on the tail tip, especially if you have a Thunder elemental weapon.

Magma Almudron Status resistances and ailments in MHR Sunbreak

Zero stars mean it is immune to that ailment, while three stars mean it's highly effective against that monster. We wouldn't recommend using any status ailment against Magma Almudron. Even though everything but Blast can work against the Leviathan, it's better to go with Raw damage in this fight. Before starting the battle, find a Mudbeetle (Helping Helper) to inflict Waterblight on Magma Almudron, which will increase all damage dealt.


Magma Almudron Drop Rates - carves, capturing, breaking, & more in MHR Sunbreak

There are multiple ways to get monster parts, but it all heavily revolves around a percentage system, which is ultimately RNG. You may get a rare item or none at all.

  • There are a considerable amount of ways to gain items:
    • You can carve three times once the monster is dead, but this can change with skills and the type of monster
    • All chopped appendages of said monster can normally be carved once
    • Capturing the monster instead of killing it can alter the percentage of rewards
    • Breaking monster parts, claws, and wings increases the odds of getting more parts
    • From obtaining the white drops that fall from the monster
    • Gaining rewards for completing your quest
