Monster Hunter Rise offers players a horde of unique monsters to hunt down throughout the campaign. These beasts are formidable foes, and each creature has its strengths in battle, making every encounter different. Players should know their enemies before fighting them, as enemies like the Nargacuga can do the job of unprepared parties quickly. Study the Flying Wyvern, Nargacuga with our breakdown. Nargacuga's weaknesses, resistances, and drop rates in Monster Hunter Rise are listed below.



All Nargacuga Weaknesses

Nargacuga Elemental Weakness

Nargacuga's biggest weakness is thunder, so if you have any weapons with this attribute, be sure to take them with you into the field. Those without a thunder weapon would do well to pack a fire tool instead. It's a viable second option against the Nargacuga and deals substantial damage, although that damage is noticeably lower than thunder. Ice and Dragon weapons are a good third option, but they are weaker than Thunder and Fire. The boss is immune to water damage, so don't use water weapons on the Nargacuga.

These thunder elemental weapons would do well to focus their attacks on the Nargacuga's clipped wing, head, and tail, as these areas are most vulnerable to thunder damage. If you're using fire and dragon weapons, aim your attacks at the Cutwing as often as possible, as this area will take the most damage. Those with ice weapons should focus on the head and severed wing.

Nargacuga Location Weakness

If you're not using an elemental weapon, you want to attack locations where you deal extra damage. These slots on a monster are differentiated according to the type of weapon you use: cut, impact or shot.

Location damage Cutting damage Impact damage Shooting damage
Lead 65 70 40
Cou/Dos 30 30 35
foreleg 43 43 35
cutter wing 21 24 21
Abdomen 40 40 30
hind leg 30 30 25
Queue 46 40 45
tail tip 40 35 40
  • If using a cutting weapon, focus on the head or tail
  • If you're using a blunt weapon, focus on the head.
  • If you're using a gun/bow, focus on the tail shot.

Resistances and evils of Nargacuga

Nargacuga isn't very susceptible to ailments, but two ailments can deal noticeable damage to the Wyvern: Blast and Thunderblight. Be sure to try and use weapons like the Duals Blades to quickly inflict ailments on the Nargacuga. The boss isn't immune to any ailments, though Blast and Thunderblight are your safest bets in this battle.



Nargacuga Drop Rate - Sculpt, Capture, and Break

Depending on your quest, you can get different rewards for forging armor and weapons, but each has a drop rate percentage, ultimately RNG. It's pure luck what you get.

  • There are several ways to get items
    • You can carve three times once the monster is dead.
    • You can capture the monster instead of killing it.
      • Or sculpt said monster's broken appendage.
    • Looting the drops from the monster
    • After successfully completing your quest

Most monsters have breakable parts, and Nargacuga is no different. The Cutwing, Head, and Tail can all smash onto the Nargacuga, so focus attacks here if you want to smash parts of the monster. If you break these pieces during the hunt, you will earn additional rewards after completing the quest.


The tables below show the percentage and drop rates of each Nargacuga material, low and high rank.
