Tigrex Hunting Tips

The Tigrex's charge is swift, vicious, and far-reaching. During the hunt, keep to its side to stay outside its range; let it keep charging and eventually it will tire and slow down, opening itself up to your counterattack.

How to Beat Tigrex

Check IconStay Close to Tigrex's Underarm

Check IconUse the Quicksand in Sandy Plains

Check IconLead Tigrex into Walls or Pillars

Check IconAnticipate Tigrex's Roars

Break Tigrex's Forelegs

MH Rise - Breaking Tigrex Forelegs

Tigrex is highly mobile for its size, however, breaking Tigrex's forelegs will knock it over, giving hunters ample time to deal heavy damage. Broken forelegs also reduce the speed of Tigrex Rush and can even cause Tigrex to trip during the attack!

Sever Tigrex's Tail

MH Rise - Severing the Tigrex

As with most Flying Wyverns, cutting Tigrex's tail reduces the effective range of its tail attacks, making the hunt easier overall.

Stay Close to Tigrex's Underarm

MH Rise - Staying under the Tigrex
Despite Tigrex's wild attacks, hunters that stay close to its underarms will find it rather easier to dodge most of its attacks compared to staying at mid range.

Use the Quicksand in Sandy Plains

MH Rise - Trapping the Tigrex Using Quicksand in Sandy Plains
Baiting Tigrex into Quicksand in Sandy Plains gives you precious time to dish out your heaviest attacks. This is especially useful in situations in which you want to break the Forelegs or Head as fast as possible!

Lead Tigrex into Walls or Pillars

MH Rise - Tigrex Getting Stuck on a Pillar

Hunters can take advantage of Tigrex Rush by leading Tigrex into walls or pillars where its maw will get stuck. This creates a great opening to unleash your strongest combos and attacks.

Anticipate Tigrex's Roars

MH Rise - Counter the Tigrex

As previously mentioned, most of Tigrex's roars can inflict damage to anyone within range. We recommend that you try to dodge roars as much as possible! Tigrex is vulnerable during its roar animation — Dodging or blocking through it grants you another opportunity to deal damage for free.

Tigrex Attack Patterns

Name Description
Tigrex Rush Tigrex continuously dashes towards its target two to three times before stopping.
Leap Attack Leaps high into the air before slamming down towards its target.
Tail Attacks Use its long tail to deal damage and knock hunters down.

Boulder Hurl Tigrex pushes the ground in front of it with one of its massive forelegs.
Tigrex's Roar Holds its head high with both forelegs upfront then roars. Can deal damage when close by.

Tigrex Rush

MH Rise - Tigrex Rushing
Tigrex tenses up before springing forward, continuously dashing towards its target two to three times before stopping. It is important to note that Tigrex may prematurely end this attack if the first charge connects to its target. Tigrex can also follow-up with either a Tail Spin or Double Chomp immediately after the final charge.

It is best to sheathe your weapon when attempting to dodge as Tigrex can easily change direction and is especially fast when enraged.

Leap Attack

MH Rise - Tigrex Leap Attacking
Tigrex leaps high into the air before slamming down towards its target. This attack usually happens whenever there is a considerable amount of distance between Tigrex and its possible targets.

Tail Attacks

MH Rise - Tigrex Tail Swiping
Tigrex can use its long tail to deal damage and knock unsuspecting hunters down.

Tigrex Tail Attack Patterns

Tail Spin MH Rise - Tigrex Tail Spinning
Tigrex spins in place, flinging its tail in the immediate area and launching anyone caught in the attack. It is important to note that Tigrex's head and arms also deal damage during the spin.
Tail Swipe MH Rise - Tigrex Tail Swiping
Tigrex can also swing its tail twice from side to side, dealing damage to anyone caught behind it.

Bite Attacks

MH Rise - Tigrex Double Chomp
Tigrex uses its massive jaw to bite anyone directly in front of it. These attacks deal high damage and can knock you off your feet — Always be mindful of your positioning!

Tigrex Bite Attack Patterns

Single Chomp MH Rise - Tigrex Single Chomp
Tigrex performs a simple and quick chomp with its massive jaw towards the target.
Double Chomp MH Rise - Tigrex Double Chomp
Tigrex performs two quick bites in a narrow cone in front of it. Dealing damage to anyone in its way.

Boulder Hurl

MH Rise - Tigrex Boulder Hurl
Tigrex pushes the ground in front of it with one of its massive forelegs. This flings three large boulders in a wide cone towards the target. Always be ready to dodge or block this attack!

Tigrex's Roar

MH Rise - Tigrex Roar
Tigrex's roar deals damage to anyone that is too close. Earplugs also do not work so keep away or guard when it is about to roar. Tigrex usually holds its head high with both forelegs supporting its body when it is about to roar so be mindful of this!
