Dodogama - Tips and Tricks

Roll To Get Rid Of Blast Status Effect

Roll To Get Rid Of Blast Status Effect

When the Dodogama hits you with its lava attacks and rocks or you step into its magma pool, roll to get rid of the Blast status effect. This prevents you from getting too heavily damaged from explosive attacks.

Attack Head When Mouth Is Red To Trigger Explosion

Attack Head When Mouth Is Red To Trigger Explosion

When the Dodogama eats rocks and its mouth is full & red, it's best to attack its head. If enough damage is dealt, this will trigger an explosion that will deal really heavy damage on the monster.

Focus On Head & Tail To Deal Heavy Damage

The Dodogama's weak spots are its head and tail. Focus your hits on these parts to finish the monster & hunt quickly and efficiently.
