A deafening roar
Rolling over hill and dale
The weak flee in fear
But the strong prevail
On the snowy mountainside
White is drenched with red
When the ancient tyrant hunts
All are filled with dread

Quick Combat Tips

  • Tigrex is weakest at its head and forelegs. Breaking its forelegs is recommended to reduce its charging speed and cause it to trip from time to time after charging.
  • Severing Tigrex's tail will reduce the reach of its tail attacks and is generally safer than attempting to break its head.
  • Stay near the forelegs to easily dodge many of its attacks. If at the proper location, its tail sweep attacks will usually miss you even without dodging.
  • Try to have your back against walls and other solid structures and bait Tigrex's charges. Tigrex can get its fangs stuck on such structures giving hunters ample time to perform a punishing combo.
  • Using Flash Bombs and other similar blinding effects will temporarily disable Tigrex's charging attack, forcing it to resort to its close-ranged bite and tail sweeps instead.
  • Use Shock Traps and Pitfall Traps to provide openings to break its forearms while enraged. A stationary Tigrex is a vulnerable Tigrex!

 

Tigrex Attacks & Moveset

Relentless Charge - Tigrex postures up and opens its mouth before dashing forward in relentless pursuit of its target. Tigrex has a very large hitbox while charging so learn to anticipate its charges and get out of the way. You can also dodge through and under Tigrex's wing but the timing for this is very tight. Remain vigilant when Tigrex is charging as it can quickly change direction and charge again, especially when it is enraged. Tigrex can also follow-up a charge with a very quick Tail Spin.

Tigrex Roar - Tigrex's roar is so powerful that it can knock away and deal damage to hunters who are too close. Watch it closely as it telegraphs its roars by planting its forelegs firmly into the ground with its head raised high. Maintain your distance or anticipate the roar and dodge roll it the very last second.

Bite - Tigrex faces a hunter, opens its maw and then lunges forward. Deals moderate damage and has a narrow hitbox. An alternate version of this attack sees Tigrex winding up by raising its head diagonally whilst opening its jaws. It then lunges with a double bite attack that hits in a short cone in front of it, dealing moderate damage. Dodge through and to the side to evade. Tigrex can follow-up its charge attacks with the double bite version.

Boulder Hurl - Tigrex raises its head up high and slams one of its forelegs into the ground with enough force to shoot a boulder at its target. Depending on the locale and terrain, the boulder may inflict an elemental blight. For example, in the Frost Islands, this move with cause the Iceblight effect on a direct hit.

Leaping Body Slam - Tigrex lowers its body ever so slightly and then leaps towards a target, attempting to crush them with its body. This move comes out quick and does not have a very obvious tell. You can dodge towards the Tigrex and under it as it flies through the air.

Tail Sweep - Tigrex leans towards one of its forearms very briefly and then spins 360 degrees as it whips its tail around. Either dodge through the tail opposite its direction or get out of the attack's medium radius. Tigrex will often follow-up its charges with a Tail Spin.

Tail Slap - If hunters stay near its rear for too long, Tigrex may perform a double tail  slap from side to side. Deals light damage but knocks players away.

      I dread the day capcom decides to make an apex variant and make Tigrex behave like he's on meth the entire time

        Boulder hurl changes base on what terrain he is currently on fire blight if on or really close to lava, ice blight on snow, water blight when in water or puddles. If not on any elemental surface it’s just rocks ( yet to see dragon or lighten blight from him)
