Monster Hunter Rise has an array of unique enemies that players can challenge to battle. These giant beasts each sport their own special attacks, abilities, and flaws. The Fanged Wyvern, Zinogre is also a unique encounter. This electric beast shocks all who oppose it, pouncing on those unprepared for battle. Make sure you don't end up like a snack fighting this beast by learning how it works. You will find each of Zinogre's weaknesses, resistances, and drop rates.



All of Zinogre's Weaknesses

Zinogre's Elemental Weakness

Zinorgre's main weakness is ice, so be sure to bring a frosty weapon if you have one in your gear catalog. If you don't have an ice weapon, bring water weapons instead, as that's a viable second option, although significantly weaker than ice. Guns are a third effective weapon, although less effective than water. Dragon weapons should be your last resort, as they don't deal much elemental damage to Zinogre. Avoid using thunder weapons on Zinogre.

If you brought any Ice, Water, or Fire elemental weapons for your fight with Zinogre, be sure to focus your attacks on its back and tail for the most damage. Dragon weapons deal the same damage no matter where they hit Zinogre.

Zinogre Location Weakness

If you're not wielding an elemental weapon, you want to attack the places 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 65 70
Torso 25 25 30
Hip 44 44 30
Foreleg 25 30 30
Return 45 40 35
Hind leg 45 45 35
Queue 30 25 25
tail tip 21 19 dix
  • If you are using a sharp weapon, focus on the head or back, hind legs.
  • If you're using a blunt weapon, focus on the head.
  • If you're using an archery/shooting weapon, focus on headshots.

Resistances and ailments of Zinogre

Zinogre isn't exceptionally weak to ailments, but Blast and Iceblight deal significant damage to this Fanged Wyvern. Do not use paralysis disease on Zinogre. Zinogre's immunity makes this disease ineffective. Poison, Stun, Sleep, Exhaust, Fireblight, Waterblight, and Thunderblight will eventually wreak havoc, but are significantly weaker than Blast and Iceblight.



Zinogre Drop Rate - Cut, Capture & 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 prune three times once the monster is dead.
    • You can capture the monster instead of killing it.
      • Or sculpt said monster's broken appendage.
    • To loot the drops from the monster
    • After successfully completing your quest

Most monsters have breakable parts, and Zinogre is no different. Zinogre's head, foreleg, torso, and tail can all be smashed with enough force. If you break these pieces during the hunt, you will earn additional rewards after completing the quest.
