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.

Volvidon Tips
Check Icon Green Sharpness is Mandatory

Check Icon Keep Deodorant on Hand

Check Icon Prioritize Attacking Its Head and Abdomen

Check Icon Remember to Stay Mobile

Check Icon Anticipate Its Armored Shell Attacks

Green Sharpness is Mandatory

MH Rise - Green Sharpness is Mandatory
Volvidon's armored shell is incredibly thick and can easily repel attacks from weapons with yellow sharpness. We recommend bringing a weapon with at least green sharpness to prevent attacks from bouncing off Volvidon's shell. Learn more about sharpness by clicking on our guide below!

Sharpness Guide: How Does Sharpness Work?

Keep Deodorant on Hand

MH Rise Sunbreak - Keep Deodorant on Hand

Volvidon can inflict Stench with its Stink Cloud, which prevents you from using health and stamina recovery items until it wears off. Negate this potentially deadly status effect by stocking up on Deodorant during hunts.

You can also check your base camp's Supply Box at the start of the hunt for any free Deodorant.

Prioritize Attacking Its Head and Abdomen

MH Rise Sunbreak - Prioritize Attacking Its Head and Abdomen

Volvidon's head and abdomen are softer and easier to hit compared to its legs and back. Focus your attacks on these particular body parts to deal as much damage as possible!

Remember to Stay Mobile

MH Rise Sunbreak - Remember to Stay Mobile

Volvidon has several attacks that can punish careless hunters that overcommit and end up out of position, such as its Swiping Attacks, Paralyzing Spit, and Stink Cloud. We recommend staying mobile and not lingering for too long near its front and rear to avoid getting hit by Volvidon.

Anticipate Its Armored Shell Attacks

MH Rise - Anticipate Its Armored Shell Attacks

When dealing with Volvidon's Armored Shell Attacks, take a step back to recognize the path of each attack and position yourself where it stops. Volvidon is often vulnerable after performing these attacks, so doing this gives you plenty of time to deal damage to the monster.

Volvidon Master Rank Attack Patterns
