Tzitzi-Ya-Ku Combat Info

  • Tzitzi-Ya-Ku has the ability to perform a special attack where blinding light emanates from its head. The attack can cause Stun and Disorientation. This attack cannot be avoided by looking away from it, it  has a telegraphed pattern beforehand that warns hunters of the range it will cover. You must be out of its range or to its side/back The stun will activate even if the hunter or camera is facing away. The flash attack can be blocked by looking at it with a shield up. (Gunlance, Lance, etc.)
  • This large monster can perform powerful kicks
  • A major weak spot is the head, which doubles as a breakable part.
  • Weak to mhw-thunder-damageThunder and mhw-ice-damageIce
  • Kinsect Extract:
    • Red: Antennae, Forearms
    • Orange: Head, Tail
    • White: Body
  • Tzitzi-Ya-Ku's organs begin to radiate before it releases its blinding pulse, giving you enough time to escape and flank it. Damaging this organ will dramatically reduce the flash's effective range and can even nullify it entirely.
