Beware The 3 Thunderbolts Of Thunder Pillar Attack
Dash & Evade To Avoid Getting Hit By Combo
Avoid The Thunderbolt On The Ground
Can't Wyvern Ride Nor Trap Because It's An Apex

Equip Lightning Resistant Armor

Apex Zinogre has many powerful lightning attacks, so it's best to protect yourself with plenty of lighting resistant armor to prevent taking in more damage. Lightning damage becomes ineffective if the total lightning resistance hits 20.

h3:Equip Armor With Stun Resistance Effects

Get hit enough by lightning attacks and you'll end up fainting or getting stunned. Equip armor with stun resistance effects to prevent this. Stun becomes ineffective if you have at least Lv3 stun resistance.

Keep Close To Its Hind Legs

Apex Zinogre inflicts heavy damage with its forelegs and frontal attacks. The good news is that it has almost zero back attacks, so it's best to keep close to its hind legs. The hind legs are also weak and breakable, so you're hitting two birds with one stone by doing so.

Beware The 3 Thunderbolts Of Thunder Pillar Attack

Apex Zinogre

Apex Zinogre will launch 3 wall-like bolts of thunder with its Thunder Pillar Attack and are quite dangerous if you're hit. You'll know it's attempting this attack when you notice that the ground starts to shine. Take that opportunity to evacuate, or if caught in the crossfire, then move through the gaps.

Dash & Evade To Avoid Getting Hit By Combo

Apex Zinogre has a deadly combo as seen in the video above. Once caught in this attack combo, it would be very difficult to evade it, so make sure you sheath your weapon and quickly dash away.

Avoid The Ground Thunder Pillar

Apex Zinogre

Apex Zinogre will shake its tail in preparation for its Ground Thunder Pillar Attack. Get hit and you'll take in damage, so make sure to avoid going through the pillar.

Can't Wyvern Ride Nor Trap Because It's An Apex

As will all other Apex Monsters, you won't be able to control them with Wyvern Riding nor capture them with traps.

Apex Zinogre - Attack Patterns

Rush Attack
Jumping Attack
Lightning Punch
Ground Thunder Pillar Attack
Thunder Pillar Attack
Tail Whip

Rush Attack

Rush Attack

Apex Zinogre performs a rush attack just like the regular Zinogre. However, due to its larger body, evading this will likely prove harder than the regular variant's attack.

Jumping Attack

Jumping Attack

Same as regular Zinogre, Apex Zinogre also has a jumping attack which you'll need to be very careful to dodge.

Lightning Punch

Lightning Punch

With this attack, Apex Zinogre will land a lightning-infused punch.

Ground Thunder Pillar Attack

Ground Thunder Pillar Attack

After electrifying his body, Apex Zinogre will generate a stream of lightning on the ground. This attack looks evadable as long as you do not step on the afflicted part of the ground.

Thunder Pillar Attack

Thunder Pillar Attack

Apex Zinogre will launch three wall-like bolts of thunder. You can avoid getting hit easily by positioning yourself in the gaps.

Tail Whip

Tail Whip

Same as regular Zinogre, Apex Zinogre also uses a Tail Whip Attack. However, this Tail Whip is usually followed up with a Pillar Attack, so be careful not to get hit by his tail.
