How to Beat Dodogama

Lava Breath

How to Beat - Dodogama 1.png
Dodogama will sometimes put rocks in its mouth and then perform a lava breath attack, this is a powerful attack that only hits in the front. Try to always position yourself to his sides at all times before attacking to completely avoid this attack.

Inflicting Blastblights

Some of Dodogama's attacks can inflict Blastblight which will explode after a few seconds if left unattended. You can counter this by using a Nullberry or just by rolling on the ground three times.

Focusing the Head

Normal Rocks Eaten

When Dodogama has already eaten rocks, there will be a light red glow and steam coming out of its mouth. During this situation, Dodogama's attacks will be strengthened and he can perform a powerful lava attack. However, if you manage to deal enough damage to his head, this will cause an explosion which can deal massive damage to Dodogama.

You should play aggressively during this situation and focus more on attacking rather than dodging to maximize your damage output and shorten the time of the hunt.
