Uragaan - Tips and Tricks

Break Uragaan's Chin To Make It Weak Spot

Break Uragaan

The Uragaan's chin becomes a weak spot when it becomes broken or chipped. Though it's hard to target, this opens it up for heavier damage so aim to break this monster part as soon as possible.

Roll Away When Uragaan Sprays Fumes

Roll Away When Uragaan Sprays Fumes

It's best to keep your distance when the Uragaan stays still and looks like it's going to spray clouds from its body. These clouds will either inflict sleep on you or hurt you with fire damage.

Blue Is Sleep, Red Is Fire

When the clouds that the Uragaan emits are blue then this means it'll inflict you with sleep. Go near a ledge or have a teammate hit you to wake you up. When the clouds are red, it'll inflict you with fire damage, dealing damage-over-time if you don't extinguish the flames.

Keep Distance From Bomb Balls

Keep Distance From Bomb Balls

When fighting the Uragaan, it will toss ignited balls of magma onto the ground from its body. Keep your distance as these "bomb balls" will explode after a few seconds and cause fire damage-over-time.
