Hunting Tips

・If you get hit by the mud a Barroth flings around, you'll get muddy, which means that any pro hunter should prioritize attacking the muddy parts of the monster to clean it off! Once you've got rid of all that mud, fighting will be some good, clean fun.

Barroth Attack Patterns

Head Bash Attacks

Barroth can use its extremely hard head to headbutt anyone or anything in front of it! This particular attack has three possible patterns:

  • Barroth walks a few steps to the front with its head flexed upward. This is followed by a quick frontal slam with its head.
  • Barroth swings its massive head twice from side to side.
  • Barroth does a slow walk — similar to the first pattern. The difference with this particular pattern is that it delays its head slam by around a second before slamming it with extra force, dealing more damage and possibly leaving a mud pile.

Charge Attack

Barroth hisses like a train, preparing to bulldoze anything in its path.

Mud Sling Attack

When heavily caked in mud, Barroth will sometimes shake some off its body to sling mud piles around it. These mud piles persist for a while and can temporarily restrain anyone within them.

Double Tail Whip Attack

Barroth can use its tail to attack anyone behind it. This is telegraphed whenever its tail is suddenly flicked upwards, followed by two dipping tail whips from side to side.

How to Beat Barroth

Avoid Hitting the Head

Unless your using a Hammer, Gunlance, or Charge Blade, it is recommended that you avoid attacking Barroth's head! Barroth's head is extremely tough and will easily deflect most attacks from almost all weapon types.

Focus on its Hind Legs and Tail

Barroth's Hind Legs are relatively vulnerable parts as most of its attacks come from either its head or tail. Focus your attacks here to safely chip away at its mud armor.

Anticipate Barroth's Charge Attack

Barroth's most dangerous attack is its Charge Attack. This can be easily identified by Barroth's iconic hiss that resembles a train before running over anything in a straight path in front of it.

Always keep an ear out for the hissing sound and get ready to dodge out of the way!

Be Wary of Mud Piles

Two of Barroth's attacks produce mud piles that persist for a few seconds. These are potential death traps that temporarily restrain anyone careless enough to get caught in them.

Take note of their locations at all times and position the fight accordingly.

Mudbeetles are Effective Against Barroth

Mudbeetles are probably the best endemic life you can use against Barroth as its effect can completely negate Barroth's mud armor. Use this to your advantage whenever possible!

Bring Nullberries

Barroth's mud piles can inflict Waterblight on anyone caught inside them. Always bring a few Nullberries to negate this deadly effect!

      I mean u do got a point but how are you supposed to learn from the games' mistake, not mine. As I recall, the attack was a good chunk o' screen away from me. The hit box of the attack is either way too large or my characters' hurt box is that chunky.

    • >>[2]
      Player list provides all of their equipment information. But honestly that doesn't really matter mid hunt. Don't add DPS trackers. It gets really annoying hunting with someone thats just shouting out the damage numbers all hunt
