Bazelguese is a nomadic flying wyvern that can randomly appear in any locale. It tends to attack other large monsters, resulting in chaotic turf wars. Bazelguese drops scales that explode on the ground and can litter the area with them. This makes it a very challenging foe to take on.

Wearing armor with high fire resistance will mitigate damage from Bazelguese’s attacks. The high rank Anjanath, Rathalos, and Rathian sets offer very good fire defense. Be sure to eat a veggie platter at the canteen to stack up even more fire resistance.
Use Nullberies to cure yourself of fireblight. If you do not have any, roll on the ground to remove it.
Watch Out for its Explosive Scales
Bazelguese is very risky to engage with melee weapons because it frequently drops exploding scales. When its scales are glowing, they will immediately explode on impact. When they are dormant, they will lay on the ground and explode after a while. It is safer to attack Bazelguese when its scales are dormant. Focus on evading it when they are glowing.
Ranged weapons are good against Bazelguese, though you will need to watch out for dormant scales waiting to explode.
Don’t Stand in Front of It
Many of Bazelguese’s most damaging attacks hit targets in front of it. Among these are its body slam, charge, and fire breath attacks. The first and last also cause nearby dormant scales to explode. Attack Bazelguese from its side to avoid getting hit.
Be Careful of Your Surroundings
Bazelguese will drop dormant scales that take a while before they explode. You may accidentally run over them while dodging Bazelguese the moment they glow and explode. Position yourself where Bazelguese has not dropped any of its scales when fighting it.
Bazelguese’s Carpet Bomb Attack
Bazelguese will often go into the air and rain down explosive scales twice before performing a dive bomb attack. If Bazelguese is enraged, the dropped scales will explode upon touching the ground. If it is in a normal state, the scales will just lay on the ground and explode after a while. Note that Bazelguese’s dive bomb attack causes dormant scales to explode as the monster crashes into the ground.
Avoid the dive bomb attack by sprinting away from Bazelguese. You can also perform a sprinting dive or “superman” dive if you do not create enough distance as it approaches you. Since Bazelguese is very big, doing a normal dodge is likely to get you hit.
Using flashpods forces Bazelguese to crash down to the ground while airborne. These can be used to interrupt its carpet bomb attack or bring it down when it takes to the skies. Attack Bazelguese as it struggles to get up but beware of exploding scales that it might drop if it is enraged.
Cut off Bazelguese’s Tail
You can cut off Bazelguese’s tail to reduce the range of its tail whip attack. Be careful as explosive scales may also drop from its tail.
