The stronger and more ferocious version of Diablos, Black Diablos, has returned to Monster Hunter Now for a limited time! If you’re having trouble locating Black Diablos, here’s where to find Black Diablos in Monster Hunter Now.
Where to Hunt Black Diablos in Monster Hunter Now
Black Diablos is a special event monster, which means that it only appears during specific time periods. The first appearance of Black Diablos dates back to the release of Monster Hunter Now in September, and now it’s making its triumphant return.
To help celebrate ring in the new year, Monster Hunter Now has several events going on throughout the month of January. The first event of the new year, starting on December 23, 2023 and lasting until January 8, 2024, features both Black Diablos and Pink Rathian appearing throughout the world.
Black Diablos are found exclusively within desert habitats. There are three habitats in Monster Hunter Now: forests, deserts, and swamps. The desert is easily distinguished between the three thanks to its bright orange yellowish coloring, so keep an eye out when you’re searching for desert habitats.
Since Black Diablos is a special event monster, it’s marked with a white star next to its map icon. Keep an eye out for this icon, as it can help you spot it in a sea of monsters.
Black Diablos is the stronger variant of Diablos, so make sure you come prepared with an ice element weapon. It’s also susceptible to paralysis, so use a paralysis weapon if you prefer.
