You can choose between poison or blast, as either of the two are effective against Kushala Daora.
Focus on the Head or Tail
Depending on your weapon, you need to focus on one part to weaken Kushala Daora. Hunters that rely on close quarters should strike its head, while those who wield a bow will have a better time shooting its tail.
Time your use of Flash Pods
It can be tempting to throw flash pods to keep it under control, however you can’t afford to waste them. When deploying these pods, you need to wait for the gust to peter out. Once its cover drops, use a flash pod to make it fall, then close in to land your combos. Also keep in mind that pods can’t affect Kushala Daora once it flies to its nest.
Plant Barrel Bombs
When Kushala Daora’s health has dropped, it will take to the skies to rest in its nest. When it awakens, it will begin to summon fierce winds. You need to quickly pull it out to prevent the field from being consumed by the harsh winds. Use barrel bombs and strike it with attacks to finish it off.
