Brute Tigrex - Tips & Tricks

Brute Tigrex Overview

Brute Tigrex Overview

The Brute Tigrex is a Tigrex subspecies that has a different coloring from its normal variant. It's known for roars that have a wider range that can do more than normal damage.

Found In Guiding Lands

The Brute Tigrex can only be found in the Guiding Lands. Hunters need to reach Master Rank 70 and get to Rotten Region Level 6 to have the Brute Tigrex show up in the Guiding Lands.

Preparing For Brute Tigrex

Equip Earplugs Or Use Rocksteady Mantle

As with the normal version, the Brute Tigrex will continuously roar its way through the fight. Having Earplugs or using the Rocksteady Mantle will keep you mobile during the monster's shouts, helping you avoid any instant attacks from the monster.

Weak To Water Weapons

When facing the Brute Tigrex, make sure to bring your most powerful Water weapon. This monster has a high weakness to the Water element.

Break Head To Lower Roar Damage

If you break the Brute Tigrex's head, you'll lessen the damage caused by its roars. You can use your Slinger Burst & Clutch Claw attacks to effectively damage & wound this monster part.

Bait Monster's Charges To Exhaust Itself

The Brute Tigrex will naturally exhaust itself when it does its continuous charges. Bait this move out so you can run and attack it when it stops to catch its breath.

Wear Temporal Mantle when Attempting to Flinch Shot

Since most of the Brute Tigrex's attacks are frontal, it's hard to stay attached to its head when attempting a Flinch Shot. This can be circumvented by wearing the Temporal Mantle before using the Clutch Claw.
