The Monster Hunter World Great Jagras is one of the first beasts you'll be tasked with taking down in Capcom's huge game, and it basically acts as an introductory fight for the entire battle system. In this Monster Hunter World Great Jagras guide, we'll be walking you through everything you need to know about the beast, including the various Great Jagras weaknesses, as well as how to kill a Great Jagras.

Should you instead need anything else to do with Monster Hunter World, including how to quickly track monsters down using the Scout Flies, or how to capture a monster alive, head over to our Monster Hunter World guides walkthrough hub.

Monster Hunter World Great Jagras Guide

As is generally the case with beasts in Monster Hunter World, you need to know your enemy before you can face it head on. The Great Jagras is a predator found in the Ancient Forest, usually preying on Aptonoth or Kestadon, which causes its belly to swell up after eating.

The Great Jagras's belly drags along the ground after feeding, full of whichever prey it was last hunting. It can take this meal back to its lair and regurgitate it for other Jagras, or it can spit the meal back out when being attacked, as well as using its bloated weight to crush any hunters. Although the Great Jagras is a predator, it's lower down on the food chain than Anjanath and Rathalos, both in the Ancient Forest.

How to Kill a Great Jagras in Monster Hunter World

You can usually find the Great Jagras hunting in the Ancient Forest map, usually in the clearing just past the Southwest Camp starting point. In terms of equipment and weapons to take with you, the Great Jagras is weak to both Fire and Thunder, so we'd recommend taking either the Wyvern Blade, Thunder Lance, or the Steel Axe, which is generally considered to be a good all-round weapon.

As for your Palico's equipment when hunting the Great Jagras, you should go for the Felyne Anja Hammer since it has a Fire bonus, and the Flashfly Cage, great for stunning the Great Jagras.

If you're in an area with wildlife that the Great Jagras likes to prey on, make sure to look around the environment for footprints, but also for skid marks. This tells you that the Great Jagras was recently hunting here, and it's a great way to boost your search for the monster quickly.

Once you've engaged the Great Jagras in combat, either before or after it’s filled its belly with prey, you should always aim for the head of the monster when possible. An ideal tactic when you're wielding the Thunder Lance is to press right trigger and then circle, to perform a counterattack against the beast, which will nearly always hit its head if you're taking it down head on.

Should the Great Jagras flee from battle (it's actually faster on the move than hunters are, so if you want to stop it from fleeing) simply aim with left trigger and hit it with a stone, causing it to stop and turn back on you. Alternatively, the Great Jagras will always flee back to its lair, which is filled with numerous lesser Jagras, which it will feed if its belly is full.

Monster Hunter World Great Jagras Weaknesses

Nevertheless, the Great Jagras is best dealt with simply by tackling it head on. You're nearly always guaranteed to find the Great Jagras near hunting grounds with lesser beasts, so plan your strategy around the fact that it's weakest to thunder, fire, and hits to the head.

Because the Great Jagras is prone to being stunned from repeated heavy hits to the head, you might want to consider taking in a heavy weapon with you. A Hammer, Charge Blade, or Switch Axe could easily be used to pelt the Great Jagras on the head, while quick weapons like the Dual Blades or Insect Glaive could also be used to attack the Great Jagras from the sides.

Now that we’re all done with taking down the Great Jagras, why not check out some of our additional Monster Hunter World guides, including our complete Monster Hunter World weapons guide, as well as our Canteen and cooking guide.

    I feel so lucky that I got odogaron during my first hunt. I am new to MH and I was really intimidated with this monster. I always run away when he is close by, as I play solo right now. He is the ugliest monster for me and the most brutal (as a low rank hunter). I main Insect Glaive, Pulsar Rod III, and I mixed and matched Legiana Armor and Hornetaur Armor for him. I trapped him and oh thanked god I got him! Astera jerky is a must have too!

    Deviljho has no habitat, it's just like bazelguese and wanders killing anything that moves or is meaty, it will even eat it's own tail.

    These are the most unhelpful reviews on the Web. Eat a meal. Avoid attacks. It's the exact same how to for every monster. Try to do damage when possible. I mean really. Your advice is simply to play the game. No tips. No strategy. No nothing. Just try to hit it and not get hit. Thanks for the really great advice.

    Loving some one all your life and finding them changing sure does hurts like hell. My husband was once loving and caring but to a point he stopped and totally forsake me, he wasn't having time for me, all he was having time for was his work and cell phone, i was so devastated that i didn't know what to do. I did love him so much, even when he was still not caring i couldn't leave cause i still loved him, i sought for help from every where i could to have my husband back, i luckily found help from a man who was helping people out on relationship and marriage issues. I went on and contacted him, i explained what i was going through in my marriage, then he assured me that he would help me, i did all that he instructed me to do and then he told me that my husband would return to me after some days, i waited patiently and after some days passed my husband came home one evening and started apologizing to me to forgive him for how he had been treating me, i was so surprised beyond words that i can't thank this man enough. If you need his assistance you can contact him on: DR_MACK@YAHOO.COM
