How to Beat Great Girros

Destroy the Head

GG1.jpg
The bite attack of Great Girros can inflict a paralyze status ailment, but you can greatly reduce the chances of this by destroying the head part. This can also lower the chances of Great Girros calling more allies to help him during the hunt.

Group of Girros

The Great Girros can call a handful of Girros to help him during the hunt. These small monsters should not be taken lightly since they can also inflict a paralyze status ailment if it deals damage. You should kill them immediately as soon as they spawn to make the hunt easier.
