Boltreaver Astalos weakness, tips on how to beat

Boltreaver Astalos is a monster that first appeared in Monster Hunter XX (Generations Ultimate) in 2015. Back then, the monster was weak to ice, and it’s the case as well in Stories 2. So be sure to prepare your equipment and party accordingly.

In her video, Monster Hunter Stories 2 YouTuber Chachacha explained how overall, you should be using Technique attacks thorough the fight, and switch to Power attacks when the Boltreaver Astalos enters rage mode. You should also be especially careful of its Lightning Pulse AoE attack. It’ll hit all of your party for massive damage.
