Explosions + spider = bad news.

Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak is the expansion for Monster Hunter Rise. It adds a considerable amount of monsters for you to take down and harvest for materials—turning them into weapons and armor.

A subspecies of Rakna-Kadaki filled with explosive material, their bodies are covered in a dark red, explosion-resistant webbing. On offense, they strike their forelimbs like flints to induce explosions.

An advanced chain of command lets them direct their offspring with a special sound-producing organ. Connecting special detonation threads to offspring in the area lets them expand the explosive area to their positions.

You only have two options when taking on Pyre Rakna-Kadaki with an elemental weapon: Water and Ice (water being the better of the two). It is immune to every other element, including Fire, Thunder, and Dragon. If you are using Water or Ice, focus on the claws and head.

Zero stars mean it is immune to that ailment, while three stars mean it's highly effective against that monster. Since Pyre Rakna-Kadaki uses blast-coated webbing and is a giant spider, it is immune to Blast damage and Poison. But it is pretty weak to stun, which is why hammer-wielders should focus on the head. Inflicting it with Waterblight, using a Mudbeetle is always a plus.
