How to Beat Brute Tigrex

Utilizing Earplugs

How to Beat - Brute Tigrex 1.png
The Brute Tigrex will constantly roar during the whole fight, this can deal some damage if you are within its range. You should raise your Earplugs skill to at least level 5 to negate its effects.

However, if you are confident with your dodging capabilities, raising your Evade Window skill is also a good idea to increase your invincible frames.

Weakening the Roar

You can weaken damage and shorten its range of Brute Tigrex's roars by breaking the head. Try to focus this part to make the hunt easier for the late game.

Evading the Roar

How to Beat - Brute Tigrex 2.png
Brute Tigrex will sometimes do a powerful roar in front of him. This wide cone-shaped roar can deal massive damage if you get hit directly. It is also extremely difficult to dodge even if you strafe left or right. It is best that you immediately get close to him and move to his sides to avoid this attack.
