Viper Tobi-Kadachi - Tips & Tricks
Viper Tobi Kadachi Overview
A new subspecies of the Tobi-Kadachi called the Viper Tobi-Kadachi has been announced as a new monster for Iceborne!
Characterized By Large Poisonous-Looking Tail Barbs
Though not confirmed, the Viper Tobi-Kadachi looks like it has large poisonous-looking barbs on its tail. The key artwork also shows it flying around, possibly inflicting poison to Hunters it hits.
Found In Hoarfrost Reach
The Viper Tobi-Kadachi's main artwork shows that it can be found in the snowy areas of Hoarfrost Reach. You will also need the Iceborne expansion in order to encounter this monster!
Preparing For Viper Tobi-Kadachi
Bring Poison Resistant Equipment
Make sure to equip yourself with armors and skills that will allow you to resist a ton of poison damage. The monster will be employing several poison attacks, and the area where you will fight has a number of ways to poison your hunter.
Has A Weakness To Thunder
The Viper Tobi-Kadachi has a weakness to thunder. Make sure to bring a weapon with a high thunder damage output as it can help you out with the hunt of the monster.
Aim For The Tail To Weaken Poison Damage
It is recommended to prioritize focusing your fire on the monster's tail. When it is broken, the poison damage that it deals to your hunter is weakened and is not as lethal as it was when the tail was still intact.
Break Head To Lower Paralysis Damage
After breaking the tail, your next priority is to try and break the monster's head. When broken, it will not deal as much paralysis damage to your hunter when it tries to bite you!
