Dodogama - Tips and Tricks
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
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.Dodogama Monster Info Here!

Rushes Forward & Leaves Magma Trail
The Dodogama does a rush attack when it lowers its head onto the ground and moves towards you. You can easily move to the side to avoid getting run over by this move.
Eats Rocks & Spews Magma Towards You
When the Dodogama starts eating rocks, it'll spew magma balls towards you more often. Follow the trajectory of the magma balls to know which direction to stay away from when he spits them out.
Spits Lava Pool That Inflicts Blastblight
The Dodogama also spits out a lava pool within a small range. Don't step foot on it or you'll be inflicted with Blastblight which can deal heavy damage when you're hit by an explosive attack.Check out Dodogama's Rewards & Crafting Item lists here!
