What is Booping?

Interrupting Behemoth Moves & Attacks

 Interrupting Behemoth Moves & Attacks

Booping is the act of interrupting Behemoths during their attacks and other moves, via a heavy attack or item, which will cause them to stagger and be knocked down.

Watch For Prompt on Behemoth Heads

Watch For Prompt on Behemoth Heads

A booping opportunity will present itself when a prompt appears on a Behemoth's head. Certain attacks or dealing enough damage when the prompt appears can interrupt and stagger the Behemoth.

Opens Up Damage Opportunities

Booping gives the entire team an opportunity to deal massive and focused damage on Behemoths when booped. This also allows you to target specific parts while the Behemoth is down.

High Risk High Reward Move

High Risk High Reward Move

While booping is extremely rewarding, it is equally as risky as it requires precise timing to be performed. Some Behemoths also require you to be directly in front of their charging attack for them to be booped.
