Brute Tigrex is a Large Monster in Monster Hunter World (MHW). ティガレックス亜種 (tigarekkusu ashu) in Japanese. It is a subspecies of Tigrex.

Brute Tigrex Combat Info

  • Kinsect Extracts
    • Red: Head
    • Orange: Body/Hindlegs
    • White: Forelegs
    • Green: Tail
  • Enraged mode: its eyes become red and it starts to roar a lot.
  • Its roars can deal damage and they have surprisingly good range.
  • Brute Tigrex tends to roar a lot, so Earplugs 5 can be useful, although it won't protect you from its most powerful roars that deal damage.

      There's a change to get Large Gold Crown or Mini Gold Crown in the new event quest "Brand New Brute" but it is a Limited Quest.

          General tigrex and barioth tip, every fore limb break is a knock down, you don't want to break one during a wall smash knock down, you'll waste it. Just sma***** up, then go to the head if you've been beating it up a lot and feel it'll break soon. His weak roars are a good chance to clutch and wall smash him.beware of his strong Roar Shockwave when enraged.

            Hi, guys. With maxed out Shara I. armor, a mega armorskin and level 3 defense meal (fish), you can tank Brute Tigrex even without augments (my Guiding L. are all level 1, I'm just fighting MR 70+ stuff through events.)
            Most Brute T. hits will remove 15 to 20% of your health. Only its enraged and really quick charges remove about 40% of your HP. Still doable. :)

                I don't know if it's cheating so don't hate on this but I was going on my day doing an SOS flare for the guiding lands and trying to get level 6 on my rotten vale. When I got in I found out there is a mysterious monster so of course i went to check. Until I went to the rotten vale I saw it... BRUTE TIGREX!! I really couldn't believe I saw him before the intial quest. I wanted to help fight it but sadly got killed by the other hunters in seconds when I came. I got this same scenario for 3 times (except the getting killed instantly part). I learned it's movements and I knew I was already prepared before the Brute Tigrex encounter when I get rotten vale level 6.

                    First time fighting him was the "Roar that Splinters the Sky" Event Quest. Easiest fight ever, don't know what I was so scared of. Just went in with Spread 3 HBG and absolutely clapped his cheeks with np at all.

                      why do its weapons have sleep attribute? nothing about the monster sends you to sleep. hell why do normal tigrex have blast when the monster hasten got explosion powers ? I get the game designers wanted to give us some options for fighting ice dragon but we got glavanus and brakidios for new weapons or you can upgrade your old rathian weapons for fire or hell dodogama for blast if you want to keep your old equipment so this seams like a slip up.
