Khezu Attack Patterns

Name Description
Neck Swing Attack Elongated neck attack that has a long range
Electric Breath Attack Electric attack from the mouth that rushes on the ground
Causes paralysis to hunters
Discharge Attack An area-of-effect charged electric attack
Ceiling Latch Khezu will jump up and latch on the ceiling
Body Slam Attack Jumps up and slams its whole body to the ground

Neck Swing Attack

Neck Swing Attack

The Khezu can unleash a long-ranged swing attack. Ranged users need to be careful with this attack as its damage is high and the range can be surprising.

Electric Breath

Electric Breath Attack

The Khezu uses a slow electric breath in a 180-degree arc. It's extremely slow so it'll be fairly easy to dodge but make sure to bring lightning-resistant gear to be safe.

Electric Discharge

Discharge Attack

The Khezu can cover itself in lightning which will shock all enemies close to the Khezu. This is a nightmare for melee users but is a great vulnerability against ranged weapons.

Latch to the Ceiling

The Khezu can latch on the Ceiling to perform an evasive maneuver. It then shoots electric balls, it is easy to dodge but is a hassle since the Khezu will be out of reach. Aim to weaken its leg to make it fall when using this move!

Body Slam Attack

Body Slam

Khezu will spread its arms, jump up and slam its whole body to the ground with full force! This one is usually followed up by a huge opening but sometimes Khezu will chain this attack with an electric discharge attack so observe and act accordingly!

How to Beat Khezu

Use Fire Weapons

Khezu's main weakness is fire, as such fire element attacks will deal the most damage and drastically speed up the hunt.

Don't Overcommit on Attacks

Khezu's electrical discharge can and will fire off quickly and will knock you out of your combo and potentially stun you. Hunter's should be careful when attacking especially when using weapons that have long animations like the Dual Blades.

Bring Earplugs

Khezu roars a lot and hunter's will often find their combos, and silkbind attacks suddenly interrupted by a piercing Khezu roar. Bringing the Earplugs skill will help mitigate this and sustain damage.

      Each upgrade level adds 2 points to defense. Depending on rarity the armor will have different levels to max up to. Take the total levels minus one and multiply by 2 to get the total defense plus what the armor started with.

    • Thunder God's Armor
      Pigment 2 for all is 160, 50, 15
      Head and chest 1: 35, 65, 20
