Chin Smash : The Steel Uragaan will smash its chin into the ground up to four times, alternating between its right and left side.
Earthquake Chin : The Steel Uragaan slowly raises its head and then brings it down to the ground at full force, damaging any hunter caught underneath and causing a tremor that leaves nearby hunters off balance. The Steel Uragaan may move while charging this attack.
Roll : The Steel Uragaan curls up and rolls around the arena, it’s important that you start moving to avoid this as soon as it starts as the Steel Uragaan is a large hazard.
Cloud : If the Steel Uragaan starts vibrating its length then there is likely a cloud coming that will either cause the Stench status or damage them with fire (depends if the Steel Uragaan is in its normal or enraged state). The moment you see the Steel Uragaan start brewing this attack, move.
Homing Roll : The Steel Uragaan rolls towards the hunter and, upon reaching them, slams the ground with its chin and expels stench gas. Devastating!
The Steel Uragaan need only come with one message - avoid the chin. The Uragaan’s Jay Leno embarrassing face mound is a devestating hammer but that’s only a concern if you let the Uragaan sniff you.
Get to his legs and keep avoiding around him, reacting to his movements with appropriate footsteps of your own - avoid that chin.
What’s more, avoid the rocks. The Steel Uragaan can throw out small explosive rocks and these present yet more arena hazards for you to avoid, particularly considering their blast radius.
When it comes to the Uragaan’s roll, get your weapon away and get running when he is coming towards you, and this is doubly important for the Steel Uragaan with his Homing Roll .
Typical rolls go fairly straight, so it’s up to you to read his angle and react accordingly, but the homing roll will chase you. Just keep moving and don’t consider doing anything other than avoiding him until he has come to a clear complete stop.
- When the Steel Uragaan strikes his chin on the ground any nearby red rocks will explode.
- In Area 6, the Steel Uragaan may burrow underground and then appear atop the 'hill' in the south of the area. It will then roll down towards the player so watch out.
