MHR Sunbreak Amatsu Weakness

In MHR Sunbreak, Amatsu is particularly weak to Fire and Blast-type damage. Meaning – bring Fire and Dragon weapons for this encounter. As for weak spots, its head and tail are where you can inflict the most damage to it, so you should try and aim for these places when attacking it. It is also vulnerable to Flash Bombs, so you can use these to distract it if you find yourselves in a tough spot during the battle.

How to Beat Amatsu in Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak

Even armed with the knowledge of its weaknesses, get ready for a very difficult battle against Amatsu. The first important tip here is to pay close attention to Amatsu when it starts gathering up storm clouds around it. This means that it is getting ready to launch a massive AoE attack, which can potentially one-shot you. Not getting caught up in it is by far the most crucial thing here. To dodge it, use Great Wirebugs to lift yourselves up into the air and wait out until this attack is over. Next, make sure that you are using canons and restraining ballistae around it. These can not just damage it, but also cause it to stagger and cancel some of its attacks.
