Dodogama is one of the funnier looking creatures in Monster Hunter World, but don't think it won't put up a tough fight. In this Monster Hunter World Dodogama guide, we'll be detailing how to kill a Dodogama as easily as possible, revealing the very best weapons and armor items you can bring with you for the battle ahead.

Should you instead need anything else at all on Monster Hunter World, such as how to safely capture any monster in the game with a shock trap and tranq bomb, or how to track down any monster using the Scout Flies to your advantage, head over to our Monster Hunter World guides walkthrough hub.

Monster Hunter World Dodogama Guide

All throughout Monster Hunter World, you’ve seen elegant beasts like the Legiana soar through the skies, or ferocious monsters like the Odogaron intimidate even the most skilled hunters. The Dodogama fits into neither of these categories, looking not dissimilar to an oversized lizard, that scrapes its bloated belly along the ground, not a million miles away from the Great Jagras back in the Ancient Forest.

Laughable though it is, the Dodogama can still put up a fierce fight against any Monster Hunter World player, especially when you come up against it in the treacherous region of the Elder’s Recess. You’ll want to bring armor that has both an incredibly high defense rating, as well as one that can protect you against fire attacks, as this is the area that the Dodogama specializes in.

How to Kill a Dodogama in Monster Hunter World

In order to take down the Dodogama in Monster Hunter World, you’re going to have to be quick on your feet. We’d recommend taking one of the Bow weapons with you into battle against the beast, as you can stand back and blast it with specialized Piercing and Blast ammo while your Palico temporarily distracts it. Alternatively, you could wade into the thick of the fight with a quick weapon like the Dual Blades or Insect Glaive, or even the Long Sword, which would allow you to maintain some distance from the Dodogama.

But if you get up close to the Dodogama, then you’ll have some pretty ferocious attacks to deal with. One attack the Dodogama loves to pull off is thrusting its head into the earth, and burrowing forward across the battlefield, damaging everything in its path. Another attack to watch out for if you’re close to the beast is that pit of the lava, where the Dodogama rears its head back, before turning orange and belching out a pool of lava right in front of it. This can be fatal to hunters on around half health, so it’s definitely an attack you’ll want to watch out for.

If you chose to bring a Bow weapon with you, and keep your distance from the Dodogama, then the beast still has ways of reaching you. A deadly attack that comes in two forms is where the creature pelts you with a fireball or five from range, all of which have a fairly excessive blast radius once they hit the ground. If you ever see sparks coming out of the mouth of the Dodogama, then you know it’s time to stow your weapon and run parallel to the beast, hopefully avoiding the incoming fireballs.

We might be all done with our guide on how to take down the Dodogama, but we have a wealth of other Monster Hunter World guides, including our full weapons guide, as well as our guide on the best armor in the game.

    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
