Apex Diablos - Attack & Hunting Guide
|1||Attack his head while enraged|
|2||Wider attack range|
|3||Be aware of flying rocks|
|4||Attack while preparing for a big move|
Attack His Head While Enraged
Apex Diablos has a soft head when enraged. It is also dangerous to attack from the front, so we recommend attacking from the side.
Wider Attack Range
Since it is larger than a normal Diablos, it has a wide range of attacks. For example, the speed when rushing towards you is faster, and it is difficult to avoid it even when running or evading while the weapon is sheathed. It is safe not to stand in front of him because of this rush attack.
Be Aware Of Flying Rocks
Apex Diablos slams his tail and makes a rock-flying attack. Gunners attacking behind can be targeted easily, so if you see him trying to smash the ground using his tail, it's better to run away quickly.
Attack While Preparing For A Big Move
When using a big move, perform consecutive attacks at the specific place on the map. In the meantime, you can cancel the big move by giving a certain amount of damage and frightening it. In addition, since the trap does not work on Apex Monster, it cannot be trapped and stopped.
Fighting In The Center Of The Map Makes It Easier To Stop His Moves
Apex Diablos is preparing for a big move behind the map, so if you fight in front of the barrier, the big move will be activated while chasing Apex Diablos. If you guide them to the center of the map when fighting, it will be easier to prevent big moves, so it is recommended to go to the center of the map and fight when you are aiming.
