  • Odogaron's nasty claws cause heavy BleedingBleeding and should be avoided at all costs. Use meat to lure it into traps, stagger it, or coerce it into bouts of rage to tire it out and make it easier to deal with.
  • When in it's rage state it moves faster making it difficult to hit with slow weapons. Dodge till it tires out.
  • Breaking a part and staggering it will cause it to counter attack. So dodge right after
  • The Odogaron's tail has a really weird hitbox when it does its jumping back tail swipe move, so 90% of the time you will not get hit by it.
  • Luring it to Girros, Great Girros monsters will increase the chances of paralyzing it.
  • To farm, hunt it on expeditions. Start at camp 11 to be closest 
  • Resting place/ Lair/Spawn point is located in Floor 1, Spot 13
  • Master Rank Changes:
    • Odogaron will generally show up glowing red from the inside and steaming from its nose (So that's why his weapons have hidden Fire damage). Has even higher Speed and damage in that mode. It will eventually wear off, but it takes a long time. Odogaron will get temporarily exhausted when that happens.
    • He may reenter this state by eating some meat.

      Really like soloing it with DBs its like one of the greatest battles. Fast demon hunter vs fast demon monster.

        I developed a sort of rivalry with old Odo here. since that 1st hunt we've been even with kills. with him pulling some over on me only for me to quickly cut him down. nowadays he's not much of a threat but i'll remember those 1st couple of high speed hunts with him.

        • Anonymous

          this dude is all over the place, use a lance or a gunlance to guard against its fast attacks, use flash pods or bombs to get some hits in

            Probably the best monster in the whole game. Not only is the design really good, this flayed wolf with a really striking, painted style, but the fight itself is excellent too. Sure, he's fast and very mobile, but he still telegraphs his attacks clearly, and does't deal too much damage; Also, he has generous openings that you can exploit if you learn his patterns, so he doesn't feel cheep. All in all a very enjoyable fight. I tend to wear his armour and weapons simply because i don't mind farming him.

              There’s a chance for Odogaron to spawn in the “A Tzitzi for Science” quest in Lower Rank(I’m at HR 5) Not sure what is the trigger, but after I hunted down Legiana it spawned around area 5 and 8. It happened twice for me, but maybe because I didn’t spot it earlier it always left the locale before I could kill it

              • Tbh not too hard. He seems to be quite squishy and damaged by anything that just plain feels bad. As a great sword user, I had a blast as almost all his attacks can be avoided by taking a nice stroll to the left. Keep your distance, cut off the tail (of course!), and promptly tea bag to death.

                  Anyone else thinks Odogaron's super rage mode looks like the Attack Titan's rage mode from season 1 of Attack on Titan?
