There are some ferocious predators for you to face off against in Monster Hunter World, and one of the most deadly of these is the Anjanath. In this Monster Hunter World Anjanath guide, we'll be detailing exactly how to kill an Anjanth, as well as pointing out the various Anjanath weaknesses along the way, so you've got a complete guide to the beast right here.

For anything else on the massive game of Monster Hunter World, including how to use the Scout Flies to rapidly hunt down monsters, as well as how to capture a monster alive, make sure to check out our extensive Monster Hunter World guides walkthrough hub.

Monster Hunter World Anjanath Guide

As we previously mentioned, the Anjanath is one of the most aggressive beasts found throughout Monster Hunter World, and you’re going to want to approach it with extreme caution. Found in the Ancient Forest area of Monster Hunter World, the Anjanath will attack any creature it sees, whether it’s the smaller Great Jagras, or the far larger Rathalos.

We’d recommend going with a weapon that either attacks from range like the Bow or Gunlance, or a weapon that allows you to quickly dodge out of the way of incoming attacks, like the Insect Glaive or the Sword and Shield combination. Dodging the Anjanath’s attacks is paramount in the fight ahead, and you’ll want to take full advantage of any transformation attacks your weapon has on the right trigger.

How to Kill an Anjanath in Monster Hunter World

As with every other creature found in Monster Hunter World, the key to killing the Anjanath lies in hitting it where it hurts. This means two places: the head, and the tail. The head of the Anjanath works as a weak point no matter what sort of weapon you’re wielding, as if its a heavy/bladed weapon you can stun the Anjanath by hitting it in the head with a charged attack, and the same goes for any ranged weapons, like the Bow’s piercing shot.

The tail of the Anjanath however, can only be severed by using a bladed weapon, like the Switch Axe, Great Sword, or Long Sword. Any of these weapons will work well against the Anjanath, but particularly the Long Sword, as it won’t penalise your mobility while you’re attacking. If you can manage to sever the tail of the Anjanath, you’ll have taken one of its primary weapons out of the fight, and you’ll also be able to examine its tail using Circle/B to recover any items like an Anjanath Scale or Anjanath Pelt.

The Anjanath has a trick up its sleeve: the ability to spit fire at your character. Once you’ve delivered enough damage to the Anjanath, it’ll sprout fins on its back and head, indicating that it’s going to start going berserk. Whereas the Anjanath had fairly vicious swiping attacks with its feet and head before, it’s now going to start breathing fire out of its mouth. Keep in mind that although the fire attack can be deadly if you’re not wearing fire-protective armor, it does have a fairly big build up, where the Anjanath will rear back its head and you can see flames begin to form around its mouth.

Monster Hunter World Anjanath Weaknesses

The Anjanath might be one of the toughest beasts in Monster Hunter World, but it still has weaknesses just like every other monster. We mentioned that a heavy weapon like the Hammer can work if you're targeting the head of the monster, but a bladed weapon can also be used to cut the tail off the Anjanath entirely, giving you another useful monster part to harvest.

Since the Anjanath is a fire-based monster, you're going to want to use ice-type attacks if possible from your main weapon. Keep in in mind that if you don't have an ice-based main weapon, then a Kinsect with ice damage from your Insect Glaive is always a viable option.

Once the Anjanath has eventually been felled after a long, drawn out battle, you’ll have the opportunity to scavenge its corpse for rare items like the Anjanath Pelt or Anjanath Scale, but your chances of obtaining a Flame Sac are drastically increased if you manage to capture the beast alive using a trap and a Tranq Bomb.

Now that we’re done with our guide to defeating the Anjanath, why not check out some of our additional Monster Hunter World guides, including our our complete weapons guide, as well as our guide on how to kill a Great Jagras.

    I feel so lucky that I got odogaron during my first hunt. I am new to MH and I was really intimidated with this monster. I always run away when he is close by, as I play solo right now. He is the ugliest monster for me and the most brutal (as a low rank hunter). I main Insect Glaive, Pulsar Rod III, and I mixed and matched Legiana Armor and Hornetaur Armor for him. I trapped him and oh thanked god I got him! Astera jerky is a must have too!

    Deviljho has no habitat, it's just like bazelguese and wanders killing anything that moves or is meaty, it will even eat it's own tail.

    These are the most unhelpful reviews on the Web. Eat a meal. Avoid attacks. It's the exact same how to for every monster. Try to do damage when possible. I mean really. Your advice is simply to play the game. No tips. No strategy. No nothing. Just try to hit it and not get hit. Thanks for the really great advice.

    Loving some one all your life and finding them changing sure does hurts like hell. My husband was once loving and caring but to a point he stopped and totally forsake me, he wasn't having time for me, all he was having time for was his work and cell phone, i was so devastated that i didn't know what to do. I did love him so much, even when he was still not caring i couldn't leave cause i still loved him, i sought for help from every where i could to have my husband back, i luckily found help from a man who was helping people out on relationship and marriage issues. I went on and contacted him, i explained what i was going through in my marriage, then he assured me that he would help me, i did all that he instructed me to do and then he told me that my husband would return to me after some days, i waited patiently and after some days passed my husband came home one evening and started apologizing to me to forgive him for how he had been treating me, i was so surprised beyond words that i can't thank this man enough. If you need his assistance you can contact him on: DR_MACK@YAHOO.COM
