Volvidon Attack Patterns

Volvidon has an array of different attacks up its sleeve and knowing these attacks beforehand will be really helpful. Below are the different attacks Volvidon will use during the fights in MH Rise.

Tongue Flick: In this attack, Volvidon will stretch his tongue to attack you from a distance.

Stink Cloud: Volvidon will release a stink cloud when you get too close, and it will damage you with each tick.

Low Claw Swipes: Volvidon will use his claws to smash the ground rapidly. If you are close to him, he will charge at you three times with his claws in this attack.

Cross Claw Swipe: In this attack, he will swipe and slash his claws at you at the same time.

Armored Shell Attacks: This is his signature attack in which he will roll towards you with his shell in front. He will either barrel roll towards you or bounce towards you, trying to crush you with his shell.

Paralyzing Spit: The Volvidon spits forth a vial containing of yellow saliva, trying to paralyze everything it comes into contact with.

How to Defeat Volvidon in Monster Hunter Rise

So, as you can see, Volvidon has only got three major moves that might come hard on you. For this, you should keep the following three points in mind as a starter:

  • Bring deodorant with you to avoid the stench.
  • Try to bring paralysis-resistant armor with you.
  • Don’t step back when it marches forward for scratching or rolling attack.

Now that you have the keys to the fight in mind let’s talk about how the fight proceeds.

So Volvidon will start off initially with simpler attacks. These include the bouncing jump attack and the scratching one.

You can block the bouncing jump attack, but you must dodge the scratching one. You can also manage to hit it during the rolling attack, and if successful, it will make Volvidon fall off onto the ground remain motionless for a few seconds.

Next, you should stay vigilant of its paralysis attack; there is a good opportunity in it! When Volvidon sticks out its tongue for the paralysis attack, you can damage its tongue and it will inflict pretty good damage to it.

Besides, you can also keep hitting it from the sides to break the tough red shells on its back. It will not only make it incapable of making the rolling attack but will also make it more prone to damage.

Focus on his head and abdomen as these are the areas that deal him the most damage. Also, make sure that you bring weapons that have Green resistance.

Volvidon’s protective shell is extremely thick, and yellow sharpness weapons will be quite useless against him. It is recommended to take at least a weapon with Green Sharpness.

So, keep fighting it until it goes low on stamina. It won’t be able to do the paralyzing and rolling attacks then. This makes it further easy to fight with and soon, you will have made it make a run out of the area. Chase it down and finish it off!
