Monster Hunter: World Iceborne - Velkhana


A monster that feeds on rocks. Its body resembles a giant crocodile, and it has a frog-like head with a huge throat. Dodogama’s mouth contains strange crystals that, when infused with its saliva, produces explosive rocks. It defends itself by shooting targets with the explosive substance. Unlike other monsters, it is not territorial and will only resort to attacking intruders if they dealt the first blow.

Blast its Mouth

Dodogama uses its giant maw to gather some explosives in its mouth. Wait for it to store minerals in its mouth, but don’t wait for too long. When its mouth is full, shoot its face to cause the minerals to explode. The blast will cause it to stagger, allowing you to close in and deal some damage.

Strike its Head

Dodogama has two weak spots, namely its tail and its head. Despite relying on close quarters, its head is the weakest spot. You can use a bow to deal with it to avoid having to dodge its attacks when up close.

Cure Blastblight

If you’re wielding a melee weapon, you need to pay attention to the clouds that form on the field. Stepping on them inflicts Blastblight. Use a Nulberry to cure it immediately to prevent its follow up from instantly killing you. Alternatively, you can also roll three times to put an end to its effect.
