How To Hunt Bishaten

One of the surprises that we are going to find during our hunts in Monster Hunter Rise are the new monsters that have been released in this installment, and since we haven’t met them before, it is likely that during your first confrontations with them you do not know exactly what you should do. Specifically, in this guide, we refer to how to hunt Bishaten.

Bishaten is one of the monsters that are available in Monster Hunter Rise, and is a mixture of monkey and bat that does not stop spinning and throwing all kinds of fruits that can cause different states. So in this guide, we teach you how to hunt Bishaten in Monster Hunter Rise, pointing out the weaknesses and strengths he has, and also in which parts of the game it is better to attack him.

How To Hunt Bishaten

Bishaten: strengths and weaknesses

This enemy does not have any element associated with it. In this case, we advise you to use the best armour you have but taking into account that it is an enemy that can afflict us with poison and paralysis status. Carrying a few antidotes to combat will be more than enough, while paralysis can be cured after being hit by a teammate or by the enemy himself.

It has an elemental weakness to ice, and perhaps also takes a little extra damage from fire and thunder damage, but is resistant to water and dragon-type. It has a two-star weakness to explosions and the ice plague. When it comes to the hit zones, it has quite a few places you could attack. In principle, each type of weapon is effective if you hit it to the head, but cutting weapons can do good damage to its tail.

Best way to face Bishaten

It is not a very complicated enemy, and most of its attacks are physical, so if you are a little away, there will not be much problem. It generally performs rotating movements and you must be especially careful with an attack where it lunges at the players, where you will have to avoid it by dodging to the left or right.

If you hit the enemy while he is spinning, he will drop fruit, which you can use exclusively in this fight to afflict it with a taste of its own medicine; you can even heal with some of the fruit. Obviously, the enemy can also use this fruit, and in fact, it is one of its main movements, and depending on its colour, it can perform a different type of damage. For example, the yellow fruit is a standard projectile; purple fruit can poison you if it hits you; while the yellow-green fruit can cause paralysis.

Finally, when Bishaten covers his eyes with his wings, it will mean that he will cause a flash that will stun hunters, and for a couple of seconds, you will be defenseless, so be sure to either be behind Bishaten or block the flash with a shield weapon (similar to Gypceros or Tzi-Tzi Ya-Ku in previous games).

Personally, I like to go against Bishaten with either a Charge Blade or a Lance, using its block-counter moves do work marvelously against a good number of its attacks.
