How to Beat Diablos

Utilizing Screamer Pod

Diablos has a habit of diving into the sand when enraged, you can use a Screamer Pod to force Diablos out of the sand and stagger him for a few seconds because of the loud sound the Screamer Pod creates. Use this as an opportunity to attack with your best combos and maximize your damage output for efficiency.

Weapons with Shield

Many of Diablos' attacks have a wide range but can be easily dealt with using a shield with the skill Guard Up. You can abuse this to repel most of his attacks while consistently trying to deal chip damage on the horn.

Using the Environment

How to Beat - Diablos 1.png
Diablos will frequently do rush attacks that you can also use to your advantage. You can lead Diablos to charge towards the rock pillars that are scattered throughout the map. This will not only deal massive damage but it will also stun him for a few seconds giving you another opportunity to attack.

Attack from the Sand

How to Beat - Diablos 2.png
Diablos does a unique attack that he can only do in area 14. There is a wall of sand that he can enter and instantly rush towards you after a few seconds. This can cart you if it hits at low health or if you do not have enough defense. Be sure to prepare to roll away and keep your distance when Diablos enters the sand wall.
