5 Monsters to Watch Out For in Monster Hunter World: Iceborne
Posted by Martin Patino September 12, 2019

The release of Monster Hunter World: Iceborne brought with it not only a new world for hunters to explore but also a multitude of new monsters, small and large, for them to face. Not only do the new monsters consist of brand new beasts indigenous to the new region, Hoarfrost Reach, but also several fan favorites from previous Monster Hunter games. We’ve listed down five of the monsters in Iceborne that you should definitely watch out for.


Banbaro was one of the first new monsters to be revealed for the Iceborne expansion. The two-legged Brute Wyvern uses its gigantic antlers to not only charge at its enemies but also hurl tree and snowy boulders. Banbaro isn’t incredibly aggressive and won’t attack on sight but hunters who overstay their welcome will soon see themselves being charged by this beast.


One of the most iconic monsters in the franchise is making a comeback in Iceborne! Tigrex doesn’t wield any elemental attacks and simply uses its brute strength and incredible speed to take down both hunters and monsters that get in its way. Even its roar is powerful enough to hurt hunters who are too close.


Velkhana is the flagship Elder Dragon of Iceborne and the latest to join the ranks of Monster Hunter’s most powerful monsters. While Velkhana is relatively smaller than other Elder Dragons, it commands the power of ice with its frost breath and its ability to summon both erupting ice pillars and falling stalactites. It’s also equipped with a spear-like tail to impale hunters with.


One of Monster Hunter Generation’s Fated Four is making an appearance in Iceborne. Glavenus is known for its heavy armor as well as its humongous and sharp tail that it can sharpen and heat up for powerful flaming tail attacks. It can also spit fireballs or do fire damage with its bites when its mouth is on fire.


One of the last monsters unveiled before the release of Iceborne, Rajang’s announcement came as both an exciting and terrifying surprise for hunters. It’s huge stature, speed, and powerful electricity-based attacks make it one of the most formidable foes hunters will be able to face in Iceborne. Rajang isn’t currently available in the game yet but will be released in the near future.

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is currently available on the PlayStation 4 and will come out on PC in January 2020.
