When fighting the Behemoth, make sure to have your Jump Emote set to your Radial Menu. This will make jumping the Meteor way easier.

② Set a Good Distance From Yourself to the Meteor

Avoid being too near the meteor when it starts. Try to be on a position where you can see the meteor clearly to make the dodge timing work better.

③ Jump After The Hunter's Animation
