Tetranadon Characteristics

Pattern Changes Depending on Size

tetranodon expanded
The Tetranadon can eat to expand its body size. It's moves will change when it expands and some of its existing moves will gain new effects. Make sure to approach the fight differently depending on Tetranadon's state.

Tetranadon Attack Patterns

Attack Power Increases When Expanded

tetranodon giant form
Upon expansion, Tetranadon gains a massive increase in damage. To compensate, it's speed is greatly reduced, on the demo that was shown, it might also be able to expand automatically when enraged.

Attack To Shrink the Tetranadon

The Tetranadon's massive size can be shrinked back to original by dealing enough damage to it. When Tetranadon expands, stay on the offensive while evading its attacks!

Rush Attack Can Be Dodged Sideways

Tetranadon's Rush Attack is a straight forward move. Move sideways to avoid this attack. Take note that this attack will be harder to dodge if Tetranadon's size is expanded.

Water Breath Attack

The Tetranadon is capable of unleashing waterballs. During its normal form, it will spit three waterballs but when expanded, it will shoot one giant waterball instead.

Jump Attack

The Tetranadon can jump high and land on the ground. It's an attack with a huge hitbox and high damage so make sure to dodge it!

Slam Attack

tetranodon slam
Similar to a Sumo Wrestler, the Tetranadon will raise one of its foot and slam it to the ground. When in expanded form, it will also cause tremor so bringing some tremor resist skill will help. It is also unconfirmed if the tremor attack can be dodge via the wirebug so stay tuned for our team's findings!

Rock Throw

When in expanded form, the Tetranadon can pick up rocks and throw it at the player. As soon as the rock is picked up, it's a good idea to watch its movements to easily dodge the attack.

Use the Wirefall When Restrained

When the Tetranadon restrains your character, your character will be thrown away. Use the Wirefall to easily get back to your feet and resume the battle.

    • Is it possible to view the armor and weapons we have equipped in the demo???

    • I hope they have different accessories for the Palamute like how the Palico can use Palico Gadgets! Maybe fang accessories which could inflict Poison, etc.?
