Slaying monsters are nothing new for fearless Hunters of New World but Behemoth is unlike any beast they have encountered before. Going up against him will need you to come up with some finest tactics and reliable teamwork.

Of course, strategies are the key here but that doesn't mean you shouldn't worry about weapons and item loadouts. A well planned defense may fall apart by his relentless attacks once he locks target on you with a wrathful gaze.

Players would be wise to aim for his head and try to block or evade his big hits to save up health. Few support-focused teammates wielding weapon types like sword and shield, light bowgun or hunting horn can come in handy in this case.

Someone with health boost and wide-range, similar to skills from Lunastra armor set can also be very useful in your squad. Keep an eye around and watch out from Behemoth making his ultimate move, Ecliptic Meteor to cause an instant faint!
