Watch Out For Thunder Attacks
Zinogre's thunder attacks are powerful and can afflict Thunderblight once hit, so make sure to use Thunder Resistant armor or use Nulberries.
Remove Super Charge With Flinch
Zinogre has a super charged state, and during this, the range and power of its attack increases. This state can be cancelled out with flinch, so aim for weak spots such as its head and afflict flinch.
Shock Trap Effectiveness
Since Zinogre's super charge state deals with electricity, the Shock Trap is only effective when it's at its normal state. However, do note that if you use it too much, the chances of it getting super charged gets higher.
※Attack patterns are based from MHW.
More Aggressive When Charged
Zinogre goes into super charged state after several thunder attacks. It becomes more aggresive when it is in its charged state with an increased range and area of effect damage, so be more careful and mindful of your positioning.
Stay To The Side During Frontal Strike
When the Zinogre raises its front legs, its time for you to get out of the way. Best places to dodge to are to the monster's sides or rears. Be careful as this attack can cause shockwaves on certain terrain.
Chance To Counterattack
Zinogre is unable to move quickly after its frontal strike move, so use this as an opportunity to attack if you are successful in avoiding the strike.
One of Zinogre's most powerful attacks is the body slam. Zinogre slams itself into the ground while charged. Area of effect is small but deadly. It barks once as a sigal for this attack so make sure to move away once you see it.
Chance To Counterattack
Just like with Frontal Strike, a chance for a counterattack comes right after this move. Since the Zinogre will land on its back, you can use this as an opportunity to get a few hits in before it stands back up. You can use this as an opportunity to get a few hits in before it stands back up.
Counterattack After Flinch
Zinogre will counterattack using its front legs after it recovers from flinch. The likelihood of this counterattack is high and it will attack continuously, making it quite a dangerous move. Make sure to start avoiding it when it starts to raise its front legs.
