Odogaron's weaknesses in Monster Hunter World

Although, Odogaron has no main element, he is weak to Ice and Thunder. He has big claws, which may provoke bleeding if he manages to hit you directly. This means that you should either keep distance using your bow or stick to his sides, chopping him with Charge Blade.

Odogaron is also susceptible to the Paralysis effect, so be sure to use it as well. You can then focus on his head and front claws, or if you're behind him, then focus on his tail, which can also be severed.

If you're fast enough, you will be able to avoid his charges. Then make him limp, and this should be a good sign that you're very close to killing him.

How to Defeat Odogaron in Monster Hunter: World

Probably the best armor set against Odogaron is the Girros Armor, which will increase all of your Paralysis effects and resistance abilities. It can be derived from the Great Girros monster that roams the same Rotten Vale where Odogaron can be found.

If you don't have a good bow or the Charge Blade, then opt for Lance or Gunlance as your main weapon. It will provide you with good blocking, and at the same time, excellent range and high attack power.

If you're fighting the monster in Rotten Vale, you will notice giant bone structures hanging all around the area. You can use Slingers to pull them down on the monster and damage him heavily. On the other hand, if you've stumbled upon Odogaron in Coral Highlands, you can use the Glider Mantle to ride air currents, and thus escape the monster by reaching higher spots.

Note: It is not a good sign when his veins turn red on his back -- this means that he is preparing for a charged attack. Try to avoid it as much as you can, as at this moment, Odogaron hits like an unstoppable train. Dodge his attack, and wait for another opportunity to attack.

If by any chance he damages you with his claws and provokes bleeding, take some Astera Jerky, and it should quickly heal you up. When you'll be done with the monster, you will get the Odogaron Armor, which will provide you with an excellent bleeding resistance in all future hunts.

And of course, if you feel too much pressure when dealing with Odogaron, call for co-op help -- vand other players will gladly give you a hand. After all, this game is about fun and not frustration.
