How to Beat Odogaron

Watch Out for Quick Combos

How to Beat - Odogaron.gif
Odogaron's attacks usually have a sequence of follow up that can be difficult to avoid if you are playing too aggressive. Be sure that Odogaron is finished with his combos before closing the gap and engaging again.

Counter Bleeding

If you are hit by Odogaron's claws during an attack, you will be inflicted with the Bleeding status ailment. This can be troublesome if it is not dealt with immediately. This can deal damage depending on how much movement you make while it is present. It is best that you cure it immediately once you have this status ailment with an Astera Jerky.

Which Part to Aim For

Destroying the front leg of Odogaron can drastically reduce his movements making the hunt easier in the long run. Also, if you can break the claws on his front legs, the chances of inflicting bleed will drastically decrease.

Using Meat Traps

Since Odogaron is a large monster with a strong appetite, it will eat any meat trap that you set along its path. You can use Drugged Meat, Tinged Meat, and Poisoned Meat which will all work perfectly for this hunt.

Cornered Odogaron

Odogaron will sometimes move to a corner and then suddenly stop. This only means that Odogaron is waiting for an opportunity to attack incoming hunters. This attack can take a huge chunk of your health, try to watch out for this behavior pattern, and draw him out in an open area before engaging again.
