Gigginox guide

Contents

[edit] Preparation

[edit] Items

[edit] Equipment

  • Gigginox is weak to fire, so a fire weapon may improve damage output.
  • Negate Poison can be very useful against Gigginox, and an armor set with this skill should be considered if available, even if it has slightly lower defence.
  • Gigginox parts can be broken with either slice or blunt damage, so any weapon type is viable.

[edit] Companions

If Cha-Cha and/ or Kayamba(Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate only) are unlocked, they should have dances equipped that will help the hunter to survive. Dances that give health regeneration are especially useful. Abilities on the Shakalakas' masks may vary, but Fire Attackand Antidotal may be particularly useful. The Eaplugs ability can also be helpful, as it allows companions to attack the hunter when theGigginox roars to give the hunter the chance to escape the next attack.

[edit] Combat Suggestions

[edit] Breaking Points

The Gigginox Can be broken in three places:

  • The Head-shown by two glowing pink spots when in dark caves(areas 5 and 7), and by two small, strangely-textured bumps when in light
the head is at the front of the body (obviously)
the head is slightly larger than the tail and is held slightly higher, making it distinguishable from the tail.
the head is a good place to do large amounts of damage, except for when the Gigginox is in Rage Mode
  • The Body-shown similarly to the head, with two spots that glow in the dark
the body is between the head and tail, and is sometimes protected by the wings
it is less obvious when the body is broken than when the head or tail are broken because the spots on the body are under the Gigginox unless it is upside down after taking heavy damage
the body is always a good place to attack the Gigginox, and will never bounce weapons with yellow sharpness or higher
  • The Tail-almost identical to the head, but slightly smaller and located at the rear of the Gigginox
located at the back
slightly smaller and lower than head
will bounce weapons unless Gigginox is in Rage Mode
