Zinogre Details & Locations


Zinogre Combat Info

  • Kinsect Extracts:
    • Red: Head/Forelegs
    • Orange: Chest/Back/Hindlegs
    • White: Tail
  • Enraged mode: When it's fully charged, the camera will pull back and it will howl loudly causing roar stun and lightning will arc from it.
  • Shock Traps do not work while it is charged. If you are looking to capture one in it's charged state, you may use a Pitfall Trap instead.
  • As shown in the developer panel, when it's stunned, you can use the Capture Net to catch the Fulgurbugs off of its back that give it electricity.
    • This can only be done while it is in its charged state, and only works on Zinogre's back. Using the Capture Net on any other part of its body will have no effect.
    • Successfully capturing Fulgurbugs off of its back will decrease the amount of time it remains in its charged state.
  • When it's charging, if you do enough damage to its head, you can interrupt it for a second or two.  It may start charging again after regaining its balance.
  • Doing enough damage while it's charged will cause its to temporarily lose its supercharged state.  You'll hear a ringing sound when this happens and it will recoil and snarl at you.
  • Beating Zinogre out of its charged state will also always end its enraged state. You may take advantage of that by enraging it while Zinogre is not charged and the forcefully calm it down once it discharges.
  • One of it attacks makes it land on its back, making it vulnerable to attacks for a very short amount of time.
  • To evade its claws slams simply dodge roll towards its tail.
  • When it rolls in the air to shoot its lightning orbs, they seem to rotate in a counter clock wise direction.  If you are too close to it, they will hit you.  Distance is key to avoiding this attack.  Once the orbs have traveled a certain distance they will dissipate.
  • Thunderproof mantle will help you avoid Thunderblight.

      You forgot to put the Shocking Climax quest in the "Target of Quests" section (aka the quest where you have to fight a Namielle but accompanied by the Zinogre)

        Zinogre was the most hunted monster in iceborne so now they became the new loot dropping quest like greatest jagras. They drop all types of coal (including the previously unobtainable giant coal chunk) and you can harvest silver and gold eggs off their back when they are downed.

          The Zinogre is that one kid who wants to play electric guitar in band class, but can't, so he learns the electric slide in dance class instead.
          How many other electrifying puns can you make about lightning doggo.

            Should have been introduced earlier, previous hunts were elder dragons already. The head is breakable twice, one horn damaged, then both.

                It's strange that the white and orange extracts are tail and legs respectively, it's normally the other way around.

                  Gloriously underwhelming compared to other monsters. Unless he's powered up he poses literally no threat. Really sad especially given how cool his design is.

                    Whenever they pin me, it just looks like they're licking my face like a very happy dog. Wish I could train one.

                        Ah... Monster Hunter Portable 3rd memories... It feels really great adding this monster to iceborne. Fighting with him will remind me when I was playing on my psp back then.

                          If you think and look at the hunting horn it's kinda funny, it's looks very similar to an electric guitar. not sure if this was supposed to be a little joke but to me it's funny either way. also, who's hyped for stygian? His attacks look freaking awesome (and more complicated from when I remembered in MH4U.) Happy Holidays and Happy Hunting! I wish every single one of you the best of luck. May the Sapphire Star light your way and guide you through the hardest of missions. Don't give up! There's still hope! You are a hero of your lands, a friend, the best hunter in the fleet! Get out there and show the monsters that it's YOUR turf! You can do it! You are the legendary Sapphire Star, NOTHING CAN STOP YOU!
