Rust Duramboros is a subspecies of Duramboros that inhabits the Sandy Plains. The environment in which it lives has left its body covered in sand and grit, giving its hide a copper-pink tone, on top of the natively brown hide. Although similar to ordinary Duramboros in many ways, the Rust Duramboros has developed a wider, more axe-like tail club rather than the spherical, hammer-like club of a common Duramboros. Being struck by the tail can inflict the Muddy status on the Hunter.
Because it is not exposed to coverings of moss and algae, the body of a fully grown Rust Duramboros retains its juvenile appearance to a great degree.
- When exhausted, Rust Duramboros will eat from a patch of woody plants.
- When its tail has been severed, tail slams will no longer inflict the Muddy Status.
- There is an Event Quest in MH3U in which the Hunter must fight an enormous Rust Duramboros (much like MH3 World Eater Quest, where one must hunt a giant Deviljho).
- Unlike the regular Duramboros, its tail can be severed with cutting damage.
