Kushala Daora - How To Fight

1Use Poison Kunais to reliably inflict poison
2Use Pierce Ammo and aim for the head
3Use other monsters to weaken Kushala Daora
4Break Kushala Daora's horn
5Tail can be hard to sever

Use The Poison Kunais

Poison Kunais

Poison Kunais are provided for this mission and can be acquired by using the Supply Box. Throw the Kunais when you're near Kushala Daora to increase their chances of hitting their mark as their range is limited. Kushala is very vulnerable when poisoned, so use the Poison Kunais as soon as you can.

Pierce Ammo To Damage Kushala Daora

Pierce Ammo against Kushala Daora

Kushala Daora can passively deflect non-piercing ammo. Aim for the head to reliably land a shot or equip Piercing ammo for your ranged weapons. You can also try breaking Kushala Daora's horn to weaken its wind abilities.

Use Wyvern Riding To Deal More Damage

Magnamalo versus Kushala Daora

Get as much help as you can by using other monsters in the field to damage Kushala Daora. As they are unaffected by Kushala Daora's winds, they can contribute significant damage when used properly.

Break Kushala's Horn To Weaken Its Wind

Break Kushala Daora

The source of Kushala Daora's wind power is its horn. Destroy it as fast as you can to make the fight easier. Wait for Kushala Daora to land and strike its head then back away and wait for another opportunity.

Severing The Tail Can Be Difficult

Severing the tail can be difficult

Despite its size, Kushala Daora's tail can be very hard to hit due to its small size. It moves a lot even when Kushala is down and can be a waste if you try hitting it. Instead, concentrate on speeding up the process and destroy the more important and easy to reach head.

Kushala Daora - Attack & Hunting Guide

1Dodge its breath attack
2Avoid the tornadoes
3Get away from the pounce & charge attack
4Beware of Kushala Daora's vacuum attack

Dodge Kushala Daora's Breath Attack

Dodge the breath attack

Kushala produces a strong gust of wind that travels down a straight line. Hunters caught in this blast will be sent flying, leaving them open to further attacks while mid-air. This attack hits hard so don't underestimate it. As it hits only those directly in front of Kushala, try to stay to its sides when attacking.

Lasts Longer When Enraged

enraged breath attack

When enraged, Kushala Daora instead does a sweep breath attack for 3 seconds. Again, this attack damages only those directly at its front so stay to the sides to evade.

Avoid The Tornadoes

Avoid the Tornadoes

Similar to its wind breath attack, Kushala Daora's tornadoes can hurl players to the air, while damaging them. These tornadoes can remain in the field for a few seconds, limiting your angles of attack. When enraged, Kushala can create multiple tornadoes in an instant.

Pounce & Charge Attack

Pounce and charge attack
▲ Kushala Daora places its weight to one side before leaping forward

Kushala Daora pounces forward then charges. Those unfortunate to get caught with the pounce attack will get damaged by the following charge or wind blast. Do a Wirefall to the sides when you find yourself getting hit by the pounce. Also, note that Kushala Daora can easily do a 180 after this attack.

Beware Of The Vacuum

Beware of the Vacuum

When near-death, Kushala Daora summons its strength and creates a vacuum, pulling hunters toward it. After sometime, a large tornado will appear, dealing continuous damage to those remaining inside it. Roll away when you get caught in this attack as it deals serious damage. Do not even try to block as the attack can easily chew through your guard with its multiple strong attacks.
