All elements are viable against Shogun Ceanataur, apart from Dragon, which it's immune to. For the best results, equip a Thunder or Ice weapon and go to town on the armored Carapaceon. Fire is also a great element to use if you want to break its claws.

For Carapaceon like Shogun Ceanataur, Blunt damage is the way to go, so Hammers and Hunting Horns get ready. Blunt users should focus on the shell and the claws and let those wielding Cutting weapons concentrate on the head and legs. Bowguns should aim for the head and the legs.

Zero stars mean it is immune to that ailment, while three stars mean it's highly effective against that monster. Against Shogun Ceanataur, Blast is significantly effective to use, along with finding and throwing a Firebeetle and Thunderbeetle to inflict Fireblight (constant damage) and Thunderblight (more likely to stun) at the Carapaceon monster. Though all other ailments will work against this foe, the time they take to affect the monster is not worth it.


Shogun Ceanataur Drop Rates - carves, capturing, breaking, & more in MHR Sunbreak

There are many 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 multiple ways to gain items:
    • You can normally 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
