    • There is a small window of opportunity while it is rolling, during which any attack landed on the monster will result in a guaranteed knock-down.  
    • In order to know when you can attack it for a guaranteed knock-down, pay attention to its rolling animation. A couple seconds before it finishes its rolling sequence, it will start to slow down, and its body will start to wobble, and it will almost appear to be moving in slow motion. Attacking the monster while it is wobbling like this will cause it to lose its balance 100% of the time.

  • Shattering its bone armor is the key to winning a fight against this beast.

      I’m willing to bet that if MR armor-sets become layered, heavy bowgun mains are just gonna cosplay the absolute hell out of Doomguy... litterally...

        This guy is fun to fight, but can pretty much die from anything. I use a great sword and have found that you should (with pretty much any monster) focus on cutting off the tail. His lack of backwards attacks makes this pathetically easy. Then just play monster hunter world until he's dead.

          fought him once... broke a lot of parts his parts cut his tail, etc..... he s almost naked then in a certain area while we fight i see him bath in the bones go a little underground and emerge as if i didn t break anything.... his tail was as if i never cut it, he got bones to his face, horns at his legs... i was really scared ... i tough i had to redo everything... then after 2-3 hit i see the skeleton icon on the minimap and capture him.

            If he starts tumbling, not rolling, hit him. If anything hits him at that point, even if it’s a rock from your slinger, he’ll fall over and go through the tripped animation.

              I tried to Capture it, I waited until he was sleeping placed a trap and hit it with 2 tranqs but it didnt capture him.. Does his face armor have to be removed first? He had just replaced all his armor in the area prior to limping... Anyone have any tips for capturing him ?

                If you’re looking for the easiest fight in the game, just bring the blazing bow and smash the arrow volley and raining rocks. This will literally take out his armor in seconds and if you’re good at aiming it he will be knocked out for half the fight.

                  This guy is sooo much fun to fight as a LBG user. You just set your mines down and he runs over them with no hesitation. He practically kills himself while breaking his own armor for you. Toss on some sticky rounds for more explosions and fire piercing rounds till he runs away limping, then drop a trap down and pump 2 traq rounds into this numbskull and call it a hunt.

                    Um, I'm a Switch axe user, and I'm not really sure about taking it down. How can I make it easier for me? Do I upgrade my axe? Do I change my Weapon?

                      dragonbone glaive and you're done in seconds... honestly, this thing really is the least you have to worry about in the rotten vale, I have more trouble taking down a jyuratodus, that's how easy this is XD
