Flaming Espinas happens when you add further aggression to an already aggressive species. Needlessly to say, it is dangerous, rocking an array of powerful fire and poison attacks, along with practical immunity to both. It is a monster that will not give you an inch if you don’t create that inch yourself. Thankfully, we’ve got you covered on that front. Here’s Flaming Espinas’ weaknesses, resistances, and drops in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak.

All Flaming Espinas information and weaknesses in MHR Sunbreak

Type Flying Wyvern Threat Level 9/10
Main Weakness Water Minor Weakness Thunder/Dragon
Main Status Weakness Blast Monster Resistant to Fire/ice

An Espinas subspecies with a slightly more muted body color. The boldness of the standard Espinas remains: run-of-the-mill attacks won’t rouse Flaming Espinas from their slumber. Their breath attack contains a powerful poison, and a dense acid that deteriorates armor. Take this attack head-on, and you won’t stand a chance…

Flaming Espinas Elemental weakness in Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak

Flaming Espinas is even more difficult to fight than the standard species. This is because of this ridiculous aggression and ruthless combination of attacks laced with flame and poison. The longer the fight, the harder it will be to survive, so you’ll want to bring it down as soon as possible. We recommend you use a Water weapon to achieve this. In most other means of elemental damage, Flaming Espinas will just shrug off. Its legs and abdomen are its main weak spots, so aim for as much as possible.

Parts Fire Water Thunder Ice Dragon
Head 0 15 10 5 10
Abdomen 0 15 10 5 10
Back 0 10 5 0 5
Wing 0 10 10 0 5
Leg 0 15 10 5 10
Tail 0 10 5 0 5

Flaming Espinas Weapon location weakness in Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak

Both severing and blunt force weaponry work well against Flaming Espinas. If using a severing weapon, we recommend aiming for its tail. If using a blunt weapon, we recommend aiming for its head and abdomen. If using a Bowgun, we recommend focusing all firepower on its legs.

Parts Cut Blunt Ammo
Head 30 30 20
Abdomen 30 30 25
Back 20 20 15
Wing 23 23 20
Leg 38 38 40
