The Blue Hinox mostly uses melee attacks that can be easily dodged. When it starts rolling, get to its sides to avoid the attack and use Stasis as prompted.

Hit the Hinox's frozen body with all you have to take away a large portion of its weak-point gauge. Deplete the gauge completely and perform a Weak-Point Smash for a faster battle.
