Blood Orange Bishaten is a new subspecies added with the Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak expansion. This variant is much more aggressive than the common Bishaten and has now adapted to use explosive pinecones instead of fruits as part of its arsenal against monsters and hunters.
In this guide, we will talk about Blood Orange Bishaten and share some tips on how to make the hunt for it more manageable.
Blood Orange Bishaten Characteristics
Blood Orange Bishaten is a fanged beast and is a subspecies of the Bishaten. It has taken on an orange-brown colored fur and has ditched using fruits as projectiles and moved on to using explosive pinecones. They are so adept at using these pinecones that they can even turn them into tops that move in a circular path.
They have also learned how to breathe out fire, which they use to attack hunters or to ignite their pinecones. Proper caution should be observed when dealing with a Blood Orange Bishaten as it can easily be overwhelmed by the pinecones, especially when it fills the area full of them.
Blood Orange Bishaten Weaknesses
Weak Points – Head, Tail
Elemental/Ailment Weakness – Water, Blast
Elemental/Ailment Resistance – Fire, Dragon
Resistant Points – Torso, Foreleg
Tail severable?: No
Blood Orange Bishaten is extremely weak against the water element and is also slightly susceptible to blast. Its tail is also a weakpoint and should be prioritized by all damage types. Hitting its tail while standing with it will make it topple down.
Keeping it grounded and incapacitated using traps while it’s on all fours is recommended so that its head will be open for hits.
Blood Orange Bishaten Moves
Blood Orange Bishaten shares most of its attacks with the common Bishaten with some minor changes. Listed below are the most notable moves in its move set.
Pinecone Throw: Blood Orange Bishaten throws a pinecone towards its target which explodes upon impact. When on normal state, it chucks the pinecones out to the target, while on rage state (on its tail) it will throw them like tops, either one by one or two at the same time.
Double Pinecone Smash: When it is standing on its tail, it will bring out two pinecones and pounce on a target while smashing the pinecones on the ground.
Claw Swipes: It will use its claws to attack 1-2 times.
Tail Whip: It does a flip to whip its tail out to its target.
Pinecone Spin: It takes out two pinecones and spins around, also spinning the pinecones like tops around it. It will then switch into standing with its tail.
Triple Tail Whip: While on its tail, it will do a front flip to whip it towards its target thrice.
Triple Backflip: It stands on its hand and proceeds to do a triple backflip while chasing a target. It can do this attack twice.
Fire Breath: It breathes out fire from its mouth that reaches far.
Pinecone Barrage: It throws a bunch of pinecones at a spot and then flies through them while spinning to set them off.
How to Beat Blood Orange Bishaten in Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak
Prioritize the head when Blood Orange Bishaten is on all fours, while focus on the tail when it is standing on its tail.
Don’t shy away from using blast on your weapons since it is also weak against it.
Try to lure another monster using a Stinkmink to make the fight faster.
Blood Orange Bishaten has two phases: normal and rage state.
Blood Orange Bishaten Normal Phase
Blood Orange Bishaten will be attacking using its claws and tails, but it will also start using its pinecones as projectiles at hunters. As it transitions to its rage state, it will start standing on its tail more.
Blood Orange Bishaten Rage Phase
Blood Orange Bishaten will start becoming more aggressive and relentless with its attacks. It will start using its pinecone attacks strung back to back, along with its back flips. It can also start shooting out its fire breath and its pinecone barrage.
At this point, it will often be on its tail, so focus on the tail to topple it down and get free shots at its head. It’s not recommended to use Flash Bombs while it is on its tail due to this.
