How to Beat Raging Brachydios

Final Area Preparations

When you reached the final phase of your hunt. Raging Brachydios will start to attack the rocks near the entrance of Area 15 to trap you inside if you ever come in.

Upon reaching this point, your recovery items and your ammo will be low on supply. Be sure to return to camp first and replenish your items and gears before heading on to Area 15.

Slimes and Explosions

During the final phase, the slimes will explode only when the Raging Brachydios uses his roar. These explosions will be impossible for you to dodge unless if you are wearing Earplugs to negate the roar's disable. The damage from the explosion can take about 80% of your max health, be sure to maintain high health during the whole fight.

Blast from the Tail

Raging Brachydios will now slam his tail on to the ground dealing massive damage. This new move has been added for the Raging Brachydios to prevent hunters who are poking him from behind making the fight more difficult.

Slime Explosion

As the fight goes on, slimes will start to appear around Raging Brachydios making him more dangerous. These slimes will start to appear when Raging Brachydios is agitated. Try to break the head, arms, or tail before reaching this state and remove the slimes to prevent the explosions.

Slime Drops

During some of the attacks of the Raging Brachydios, slime will drip off of his arms, head, and tail which will explode after a few seconds. This makes the fight more difficult especially if you are using a melee weapon. They can also deal massive damage so try to avoid them as much as possible.

You can try to use Watermoss to remove these slimes from the Raging Brachydios. As an alternative, if you do not have any Watermoss available, you can try attacking the body part directly using your main weapon.

Taking Down Raging Brachydios

Raging Brachydios takes a long time to recover when you broke a body part. Try to equip the skill Part Breaker when before fighting him head-on.

Preparing Dust of Life

As mentioned above, once you reach the final phase of the fight. You won't be able to escape the area until you defeat the Raging Brachydios. It is suggested that your party will bring multiple Dust of Life to support each other during the fight.

Fire Damage from Slimes

During the last phase of the fight, the slimes on the ground can deal damage over time if stepped on. Heat Guard will not be able to prevent you from taking damage on this. However, you are desperate, you can try using the Fireproof Mantle to reduce the damage you take from the heat. Minding your positioning can also help you during this fight, try not to step on any of the slime to prevent damage.

Health Booster for Sustain

Since you won't be able to leave the area, you and your party can use a Health Booster for additional sustain during the fight.
