The Diablos is arguably the ruler of the Wildspire Waste region of Monster Hunter World, and it'll hunt everyone and everything around it. In this Monster Hunter World Diablos guide, we'll be detailing exactly how to kill a Diablos, while pointing out the various Diablos weaknesses, so you know how to take down this beast quickly and effectively.

If you need anything else at all on Monster Hunter World, including how to safely capture a monster for rare parts, or how to quickly track down a monster using the Scout Flies, make sure to check out our Monster Hunter World guides walkthrough hub.

Monster Hunter World Diablos Guide

The Diablos is at the very peak of the food chain in Monster Hunter World’s Wildspire Waste area, which is saying a fair amount, considering the land is home to the likes of the Barroth and Rathian. If you start from the northeast Camp in the Wildspire Waste area, all you simply have to do is head into the open desert area just to your north. The Diablos is nearly always guaranteed to be here, but even if it isn’t, you’ll still find plenty of tracks and markings that will let the Scout Flies lead you straight to the monster.

The Diablos is the prime predator of the Wildspire Waste, and this means that it will attack any other monsters on sight. As you’ll see in the opening scene of the ‘Horned Tyrant Underneath the Sand’ quest, the Diablos can take down a Barroth in one bite, and it’ll make short work of the powerful Rathian. The nasty trick that the Diablos has up its sleeve is that it can tunnel under the sand at a moments notice, travel a fair distance, and then re-emerge underneath the player or any monsters, dealing massive damage in the process.

How to Kill a Diablos in Monster Hunter World

Killing a Diablos in Monster Hunter World is no small feat. You’re going to want to use weapons that either allow you to move around incredibly quickly, or attack from range. We’d recommend the Dual Blades due to their rapid attacks, the Bow due to its ranged ability, or the Insect Glaive because of its aerial abilities. If you’re skilled enough with the Insect Glaive (see our full Insect Glaive guide for help), you can potentially vault and land on the back of the Diablos, although don’t attempt this while the beast is moving, as it’ll hit you in midair.

When the Diablos burrows underground, instead of running directly away from the monster, run around it in a circle, so that when it tunnels towards you and erupts out of the ground, it’ll miss you if you’re running sideways. Outside of this, the Diablos mainly specializes in lunging attacks, charging headfirst at the player very quickly. Its charge attack is difficult to avoid, especially if you’re in close proximity to the Diablos, and so we’d recommend keeping a fair distance when you can.

The Diablos doesn’t have one, true weakness, but it is particularly prone to being mounted and attacked from above. The best way to do this is obviously with an Insect Glaive aerial attack, and if you manage to land on the back of the monster, it’ll put little effort towards shaking you off. If you’re going after the Diablos with the Bow, let your Palico draw its attention with a few attacks, and then lay into it with the charged shot, aiming for either its head or wings.

Due to the sheer ferocity of the Diablos’ attacks, you’re going to want to go with the armor that gives you the best defense rating. We’d recommend the Odogaron armor set, not only because it has a fantastic defense stat of 156, but the set skill bonus increases this rating by +5.

We might be done with our hefty Diablos guide, but why not continue ahead to our additional Monster Hunter World guides, including our complete armor guide, as well as our Wildspire Waste 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
