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.Check Out How To Use The Clutch Claw!
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.
Brute Tigrex - Weakness & Effective Damage Type
The Brute Tigrex has weak spots in 3 areas - its head, arms, and tail. The head and forelimbs are breakable while the tail can be cut off.
