Warning: Solitary Rajang Spotted Rampaging In Monster Hunter 4

By Eugene . September 13, 2013 . 1:28pm

Bellowing from its unknown habitat and rushing out to gore foes trespassing upon its territory comes Monster Hunter 4’s next creature to hunt: Rajang! Rarely spotted in the wild, coming face to face with one is a serious challenge.


Rajang, who returns from Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, will stomp the ground and swipe with its powerful forelegs, sending unprepared hunters crashing to the ground as the earth trembles. If so, hunters should dodge away as soon as possible or risk getting snatched up and crushed to death by its huge front paws.



Don’t assume you can stay far away from Rajangs and snipe them to death. Those muscular forelegs will rip up the earth itself as a boulder and fling alarmingly fast and accurate boulders straight at hunters.


Pushing Rajang to its limits will cause it to enter an almost golden state, which hunters whisper in fear as Rage mode. Charging electricity and light particles Rajang unleashes a pure blast of breath energy in a wide arc in front of him that will shock hunters and fry the unwary.




Monster Hunter 4 will be available for the Nintendo 3DS on September 14th.

      Last I checked the game got 15 ratings with 5/5 in general… >_>
      So it isn’t out yet, huh… >_>

      I’ll probably buy it when I have the funds or they reveal some REALLY good free DLC like a Berserk armour and side quest or something even if Zelda is pretty awesome. They did Conan after all.

        It’s out now on the eShop. Took me about 4 attempts to even start the download because of so many people flooding it.

        Spent 30 minutes finally creating my character.

        • Has the character creation been improved? >.< I'm gonna go scavenge on YT for some videos. Hopefully Japanese players are uploading.

            Search Twitchtv – many Youtube vids have been taken down. It’s better imo, few more options and whatnot. The one thing that stands out is how damn fluid the hair is in this game.

    I know a lot of people said rajang was the first true hurdle for them but I could kill him quite easily

    • Wesley Kenneth Houpt Mattingly

      Ever finish the final quest offline in MHFU called Monster Hunter. A true feat for any class and Rajang at his best since it’s a nice confined space. Sure he is easy when he is not SSR, or in a good party with a SnS Melynx Tool user, but he can be trouble without some good hunters.

      • The challenge of MH is why we love it. All in all he’s easy once you got down his moveset.

    Capcom htfu and localize this, dammit.

  • J_Joestar

    There are rumors that Jho is back too…

    You know what that means right?

  • Fango

    They really should have updated the rajang model….

  • Areuto

    Oh Gawd 0_O now this game went from hard to insane putting deviljho and rajang in the same arena hunt

  • I am shamed that that I have never scene this monster. I started with Tri went to Portable 3rd, and now Tri G. So I missed out on some of these early monsters. I will need to find some footage of this Super Beast!

      I admit I started on the Gen 3 train, but I saw vids of these previous ones. I’m glad many are returning in 4; cannot wait to fight them.

      You know, after I get past these damn gathering quests.

  • Hinataharem

    Oh god why. I don’t need more buttkickings

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    I can’t wait the tears from many new Mon Hun players lol when they first time meet with SSR.^_^

  • Croix Zapp
