Use Thunder Weapons
Thunder weapons are very effective against Mizutsune so be sure to use them when taking on the leviathan.
Aim for Mizutune’s head and tail.
Mizutsune’s weak points are its head and tail. The latter is much safer to hit as it lets you avoid most of its frontal attacks. When going for the monster’s head, you will need to look for safe openings to attack, particularly when it misses you with its bubble shots and slide.
Avoid Mizutsune’s bubble attacks
Mizutsune’s bubble attacks inflicts Bubbleblight that causes you to easily slip when moving and makes you an easy target for the monster’s follow-up attacks. Try to fight Mizutsune in an area where you have plenty of room to move around whenever it launches bubbles at you.
You might want to bring a good supply of Cleansers to cure yourself of Bubbleblight if you find yourself struggling to dodge the monster’s bubbles during the fight.
Body Spin Attack
Mizutsune will coil itself before unleashing a spin attack that also shoots out bubbles. Fortunately, the windup is quite long, allowing you to get away from its attack range to avoid it.
Slide to Water Blast Combo
Mizutsune will slide towards you from a distance and will leave a trail of bubbles in the path it traveled. It will then immediately turn around and shoot a water beam straight at its target. After avoiding the slide, immediately run sideways or to the monster’s side to avoid it and get in a few good hits before it retaliates.
