How to Beat Barroth

Avoid Attacking the Head

The head of Barroth is extremely hard and most slash-type melee weapons will only bounce off. You should aim for the legs as they are the softest part of Barroth.

Mud Armor

Normal Mud Armor
How to Beat - Barroth 1.pngEnlarge How to Beat - Barroth 2.pngEnlarge

One of the unique characteristics of Barroth is that he can cover himself with a mud armor that can enhance his attacks and fortify his defense. Try to stay defensive during this state and wait for the mud armor to release before trying to engage again.

Bowguns are Recommended

Barroth will often bounce off any melee attacks if it lands near the head. It is recommended that you use weapons such as Light Bowgun or a Heavy Bowgun to dish out damage at a distance without having to worry about the sharpness of your weapon.

Use the Environment

You can lure Barroth when he is using his rush attack to hit nearby rock pillars that are present throughout the area. Making him headbutt the rock pillar will stun him for a few seconds allowing you to attack with your most powerful combos.
