Gore Magala is one of the returning monsters in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, and along with it also comes the return of another ailment known as the Frenzy virus, and its adult form, Shagaru Magala. This mysterious monster’s return is upping the challenge as not only will the hunters have to deal with Gore Magala itself, but they also have another ailment to worry about aside from the spreading affliction.
In this guide, we will talk about Gore Magala and share some tips on how to make the hunt for it more manageable.
Gore Magala Characteristics
Gore Magala is a mysterious monster that still retains its ??? tag to this day. Its entire body is pitch black in color, accented only by the purple glow of its skin that shows in between the gaps of its scales. Despite being a monster possessing more than four limbs, it is not classified as an Elder Dragon, although its adult form Shagaru Magala is classified as one.
Gore Magala’s head looks similar to the Xenomorphs from the Aliens franchise and that it also does not possess a pair of eyes. In lie of its sight, it has these horn-like feelers or antenna that fold flush along its head in its normal state, and flare upwards when Gore Magala is enraged. Gore Magala also scatter its pollen-like scales which its uses to sense its prey’s heat in conjunction with its feelers.
These pollen scales are also the vector of what is known as the Frenzy virus. Any monster or hunter that gets fully infected by it will have lowered health recovery on top of a lowered defense. If a hunter successfully fights off the infection, they will gain a temporary boost in their attack affinity, as well as a temporary immunity to the Frenzy virus.
Gore Magala’s antenna is its most susceptible part of its body and it is also highly weak against the Dragon element. Every other part of its body is weak against the Fire element. Cutting damage is also highly effective against its antenna and head, followed by impact and shot damage.
Since Gore Magala has no eyes, Flash Bombs will have no effect on it, so use traps to incapacitate it instead. Be very cautious about fighting a Gore Magala and a Malzeno at the same time since you do not want to deal with bleeding and frenzy all at once.
Gore Magala Moves
The Gore Magala has several moves and most of its attacks can inflict the Frenzy ailment. Listed below are the most notable moves in its move set.
Frenzied Mouth: Gore Magala’s mouth will drip out the Frenzy virus and does a 180 full body swing. It will then leave a pool of Frenzy below where its head stops.
Frenzy Blast: Gore Magala shoots out a ball of Frenzy forward.
Moving Frenzy Blast: It shoots out three balls of Frenzy that move on land following different paths. The first two are shot on the side and follow a curved path, while the third shot moves straight forward.
Triple Frenzy Blast: It shoots out three static balls of Frenzy that explode after a split second. It can do this while on the ground or while hovering in the air.
Wing Slam: Gore Magala raises its wing limbs and slams them to the ground.
Wing Stomp: It uses its wing limbs to stomp on its target twice.
Quintuple Frenzy Blast: It shoots out Frenzy on the ground or at a distance which radiates into explosions on both sides.
How to Beat Gore Magala in Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak
Gore Magala’s antenna will only take significant damage when they’re flared up during its Frenzy state, but you can still focus on hitting its head during its normal state. It’s best to use traps or wirebug trips during its Frenzy state to be able to hit its antenna easily.
Don’t bother using Flash Bombs.
When hit with the Frenzy virus, continue to attack Gore Magala or other monsters to remove the virus. As long as it’s done before the infection gauge fills up, you will recover form it and gain the affinity boost and virus immunity.
When Gore Magala is in its Frenzy state, it will start using its wing limbs to attack. This also causes its wing membrane to be flared up, making it easier to land attacks on its foreleg.
If possible, use a Stinkmink to lure another monster to deal damage on Gore Magala; just be careful when luring Malzeno as bleeding and frenzy’s recovery methods go against each other.
Gore Magala has two phases: normal and frenzy state.
Gore Magala Normal Phase
In its normal state, Gore Magala will keep its wingarms folded on its shoulder unless it is flying. Damage done to its head in this state will hit its head alone and will not affect its antenna much. Since its wings are covering most of its body, it is best to concentrate all attacks towards its head.
Gore Magala Frenzy State Phase
When Gore Magala enters its Frenzy state, it will start using its wingarms as additional pair of legs and it will also use them to perform heavy attacks, such as the Wing Slam. Its wings will also be flared up most of the time, exposing its side and legs. It will also raise its antenna up high, allowing hunters to be able to inflict damage on it easily.
Some of its attacks will be upgraded with more Frenzy and will hit harder than usual. It is also going to be more agile than before, and perform more attacks in a shorter interval. To take it out of its Frenzy state as soon as possible, its antenna have to be broken off
