Volvidon Hunting Tips

MH Rise - Volvidon

The toxin that Volvidon spit out can paralyze on contact. You'll also want to carry some Deodorant, as the gas they emit can cover you in a stench so powerful that it makes it impossible to stomach anything.

Green Sharpness is Mandatory

MH Rise - Green Sharpness against Volvidon
Volvidon's armored shell is incredibly thick and can easily repel attacks from weapons with Yellow Sharpness. In light of this, we recommend bringing a weapon with at least Green Sharpness so attacks can go through. Learn more about sharpness by clicking our guide below!

Sharpness Guide: How Does Sharpness Work?

Focus on the Head and Abdomen

MH Rise - Focus on Volvidon
Volvidon's head and abdomen are relatively soft parts compared to its legs and back. Focus your attacks on these particular parts for maximum damage!

Stay on Your Toes

MH Rise - Stay on Your Toes

Volvidon inflicts two potentially deadly status effects: Stench and Paralysis. The former is applied by ejecting a stink cloud from the rear, while the latter is applied through Volvidon's spit attack.

We recommend that you always stay on the move and never stay in either its front or rear for too long.

Abnormal Status and Elemental Blight Guide

Anticipate the Armored Shell Attacks

MH Rise - Anticipate Volvidon

It's easy to panic once Volvidon rolls up into a ball of death. Take a step back to deduce which Armored Shell Attack it will do, and position accordingly. Volvidon becomes open to attacks afterward!

Bring Deodorant

MH Rise - Bring Deodorant against Volvidon

The stench is a potentially fatal status effect that prevents you from using most items from your item pouch. Negate this status effect by stocking up on Deodorant bringing a stack with you during hunts.

Alternatively, you can always check your Base Camp's Supply Box during the hunt for free Deodorant.

Volvidon Attack Patterns

Name Description
Tongue Flick Volvidon flicks its long tongue out, reaching at its target from afar.
Stink Cloud Get to close and the Volvidon will stink up the place.
Low Claw Swipes Volvidon strikes the ground with ts claws in rapid succession.
Cross Claw Swipe Swinging its claws at the same time, Volvidon attempts to slash at its target.
Armored Shell Attacks Volvidon's signature move; an arsenal of armored shell attacks.
Barrel Rolls, Bouncing Barrel Rolls
Paralyzing Spit The Volvidon lobs a globule of yellow saliva, attempting to paralyze anything it touches.

Tongue Flick

MH Rise - Volvidon
Volvidon's tongue flicks can reach very long distances in, thus making them difficult to dodge.

Stink Cloud

MH Rise - Volvidon
An added challenge to facing a Volvidon is its close-range defense, a stink cloud. This stinky cloud also covers you in the Stench status effect which negates you from using consumables and stops you from recovering HP and Stamina.

Low Claw Swipes

MH Rise - Volvidon
Volvidon aggressively roars before swiping low at its target three times. This attack is easy to dodge as the roar is the tell, which gives you time to react.

Cross Claw Swipe

MH Rise - Volvidon
Volvidon smacks its claws together, shredding anything caught in between. Volvidon will do a large swing before swiping which makes it easier to dodge.

Armored Shell Attacks

MH Rise - Volvidon
The carapace or outer shell of a Volvidon is very tough and acts as the armor of the monster and the primary mode of movement. If challenged, it will curl up into a ball and attack by barreling towards you at high speeds. This particular attack can have two possible patterns:

Barrel Rolls

MH Rise - Volvidon
Volvidon will do a series of two to three barrel rolls that ram anyone in the way.

Bouncing Barrel Rolls

MH Rise - Volvidon
Volvidon will do two to three hops while rolled up, slamming back down each time to deal high damage to anyone it hits.

Paralyzing Spit

MH Rise - Volvidon
Volvidon's spit inflicts Paralysis on anything it hits. Catching this attack almost always leads to a painful beating, unless your Palico saves you.
