Bazelgeuse flies overhead and scatters pinecone-like droppings from its beard and tail that explodes at Bazelgeuse's will. When enraged, Bazelgeuse will glow red and become aggresive but will have a softer hide. Use this opportunity to fight back!

Bazelgeuse is going to be tough because it's the first monster you would probably fight post-update. Since Update 2.0 introduced additional armor upgrades, don't forget to upgrade your existing armors to increase their defense before taking on Update 2.0 monsters!
When Bazelgeuse scatters its explosive scales on the battlefield, it will detonate after a few moments. When it turns red, stay away because that is the indicator that it is about to explode! Always be aware of your surroundings when fighting Bazelgeuse.
Bazelgeuse is a very big monster and it is quite hard to fight it toe to toe while minding all the explosive shells it scatters on the battlefield. Hence, we suggest using ranged weapons to better position yourself!
Whenever Bazelgeuse does the fly-by move, it will most likely follow it up with a divebomb. Wiredash away from it or emergency evade to save yourself!
Bazelgeuse will hover and fly away - a tell to know that it's going to turn back and execute a Fly By. Get ready and try flash bombing Bazelgeuse to stop it on its tracks! This will not ground Bazelgeuse but will save you from the divebomb!
Bazelgeuse will turn red and be more aggressive when enraged but this also softens its hide. We suggest going aggressive whenever this happens to deal significantly more damage. Also, we suggest the skill Agitator because it gives you bonus attack and affinity when the monster is enraged! Go toe-to-toe to win!
When Bazelgeuse turns red, that's when everything turns explosive. It will try to scatter more red volatile scales around the battlefield or drag its underside that triggers explosions.
When Bazelgeuse is not enraged, the weakness for ammo damage (Bowguns and Bows) is at the wings and tails. When enraged, all the weakness is concentrated on the red parts on the chin and the tail - though we honestly suggest aiming for the tail because it is safer and larger.
If you're a gunner, make sure to take note of this and adjust your aim accordingly!
Bazelgeuse can appear in all locales and invade your hunt for other monsters. Whenever it arrives, throw a Dung Bomb to make it leave the area!
Bazelgeuse uses the following attacks in Low and High Rank quests.
|Big Chomp||A quick bite attack that can flinch hunters. Can hold hunters above explosive scales.|
|Big Stomp||A forceful stomp attack from the air. Follows an aerial glide.|
|Fire Ball||A quick fireball attack that travels in a straight line. Doesn't happen very often but can be executed by Bazelgeuse from time to time.|
|Bomb Scatters||Scatters explosive scales in multiple patterns. Can mess with hunter positions so be careful!|
|Scatters scales in a straight line then drags the chin on them for explosive damage!|
Bombing Fly By
|Bazelgeuse will glide in the sky and drop bombs on the ground. It usually follows this up with a divebomb so be careful!|
|After a fly by, Bazelgeuse will aim for the explosive scales and ignite them as it divebombs!|
|Big Chomp Attack Information|
Big Chomp: A very quick bite attack that can flinch an unaware hunter. Bazelgeuse can use this as a way to keep the hunter stationary, especially above a volatile scale.
|Big Stomp Attack Information|
Big Stomp: Bazelgeuse will fly and glide over the hunter and will forcefully slam its huge underside. Evade sideways or wiredash away!
|Fire Ball Attack Information|
Fire Ball: A really quick fireball attack that can deal fireblight. Only travels at a straight line so just evade sideways!
Bazelgeuse's main mechanic revolves around scattering scales around the battlefield then igniting them to mess with the hunter's movement and repositioning. This also causes Fireblight and deal massive damage.
When Bazelgeuse is angry, instead of the usual dark-colored scales, it scatters red scales that explode faster. Mind your positioning and the environment whenever it's mad!
Bazelgeuse can also scatter volatile scales in different patterns which can originate from either the chin or the tail.
|Bomb Scatter Variations|
Arc Bomb Scatter: Bazelgeuse can scatter volatile bombs in a 180° arc. For this pattern, you should evade either forward or backward away from Bazelgeuse.
If scattered from the tail, Bazelgeuse can follow this one up with a Linear Bomb Scatter - using the previous explosion as a mask to disorient the hunter. Keep this in mind to reposition effectively!
Linear Bomb Scatter: Bazelgeuse throws volatile scales in a line, in front or behind, depending on if it originated from the chin or the tail. We suggest evading sideways if it's not too late, else perform an emergency evade.
If scattered from the chin, Bazelgeuse can follow it up with a Chin Drag that can deal massive damage from the explosion and Bazelgeuse itself!
|Chin Drag Attack Information|
Chin Drag: Bazelgeuse will scatter two rows of scales in front of it then proceeds on dragging its chin in the middle of the two rows, igniting them in a fiery line. Evade sideways when you see Bazelgeuse scatter two rows of scales in front of it!
|Bombing Fly By Attack Information|
Bombing Fly By: Bazelgeuse flies above hunters in a straight line then turning back to glide again - all while scattering scales all over the battlefield in a wide area. It will do this three times before ending it with a Divebomb that can one-hit KO hunters.
Use a Flash Bomb while it is flying by to stop Bazelgeuse from divebombing or perform an emergency evade when it's too late.
|Divebomb Attack Information|
Divebomb Attack: After the Bombing Fly By, Bazelgeuse will execute a Divebomb that can one-hit KO hunters. Since hunters are focused on evading all the scales scattered during the Bombing Fly By, it is very easy to ignore Bazelgeuse and only notice it when it's falling on you.
To stop Bazelgeuse from executing the Divebomb, use a Flash Bomb while it is Flying By which can instantly disorient it and abort the Divebomb. If you don't have a Flash Bomb or you're already too late, perform an Emergency Evade to save yourself!
