    This was my favorite hunt by far (so far) very entertaining and came so close to dying so many times and using up all my pots. Took around 30 minutes of intense battling but managed to capture it. Was fantastic!

  2. Jaylin on August 20, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    i absolutely cant kill diablo with dual blade if even i can it would take very long and id use all my potions its not worth ittttttttt

  3. xMithril on August 20, 2021 at 9:51 pm

    Diablos is a predator? I thought they were an herbivore that eats cactus

  4. We the sheeple on August 20, 2021 at 9:55 pm

    meh "oh look at my legendary gear it’s so easy gaiz". Nothing useful

  5. Thomas Rolater on August 20, 2021 at 9:55 pm

    I give zero fucks about this how the FUCK do I get the shell

  6. richmond Bernardo 2309 on August 20, 2021 at 9:57 pm

    Did anyone else realise that barroth is in almost all the cutscene and it gets killed all the time

  7. kenneth toh on August 20, 2021 at 10:00 pm

    how do you do a superman dive on ps4 lol is it just the same as running and the press X?

  8. Brett Haifley on August 20, 2021 at 10:01 pm

    Tricerascorpion is the second thing that has me hoarding the struggle bus. I killed ratholos first go and thought Diablo’s was gonna be an easy 10 minute kill (insect glaive, and I suck). Boy was I wrong. Fighting Odogaron and then this has been the most frustrating two kills so far… and I’m not even far into the game

  9. AmeliaBuns on August 20, 2021 at 10:02 pm

    I remember when i first saw anjanath and thought ‘woah that’s so scary aaaa" and thought it’s so hard.
    God I had no idea what was about to come after xD

  10. mralex070 on August 20, 2021 at 10:04 pm

    This monster even in low rank is harder than most high rank monsters… Literally stun locked me from full health and killed me fully buffed with best fully upgraded low rank gear.

  11. John Flemming on August 20, 2021 at 10:06 pm

    long sword advice?

  12. Brigand01 on August 20, 2021 at 10:06 pm

    Thank you for the guide and all you have done for new players Arekkz. Finally downed the fast bastard on my second attempt–last life. Took me longer then I care to realize that hes faster than he looks.

  13. Paul Fulache on August 20, 2021 at 10:07 pm

    I captured diablos at early game hunter rank 5 but i cant find him again

  14. Tofu Delivery on August 20, 2021 at 10:08 pm

    I’ve had two attempts at Diablos already, the first time I was killed 3 times without landing any hits, the second time I ran out of time when he probably had 1% health left, hopefully third time’s the charm, wish me luck

  15. Dylan Claydon on August 20, 2021 at 10:10 pm

    @Arekkz Gaming what do you do with a drunken diablos what do you do with a Diablos what do you do with a drunken Diablos early in the morning?

  16. HaviboX on August 20, 2021 at 10:13 pm

    i cant cut this fuckers tail!

  17. Jared Hays on August 20, 2021 at 10:14 pm

    Controversial opinion: Diablos is easier than Rathalos. At least Diablos fights fair, unlike that flying asshat

  18. brett woodcock on August 20, 2021 at 10:15 pm

    So I thought that since the horns were blocking my attacks that the head wasn’t a weak point, and the tail deflected my attacks for a while before I realized that was just the tail. So not knowing how to use the screamer pods then not knowing the weak points and the fact it destroyed all the pillars with its tail and how there’s no environmental help or ways to rly mount. I fainted twice and only managed to capture it, why do u make it sound so easy.

  19. Asphyx Noir on August 20, 2021 at 10:15 pm

    Died 10 time fighting this shit . Equipped every possible equipment . Even recomended ones . Used all 5 lucky vouchers . Might seed . Demon powder . Hardshell powder . Screamer pod and flash pod . I FUCKING HATE THIS GAME OMG

  20. Richard k on August 20, 2021 at 10:16 pm

    Do a monster mastery on the legiana it so op

  21. Armand WolfGang on August 20, 2021 at 10:17 pm

    With the pc version, it is possible to edit any game ps4 and other platforms can be hacked but the amount of effort to do so is time-consuming

  22. Wild mixed Games on August 20, 2021 at 10:19 pm

    I beat it first try with With dragon hammer

  23. wiLLiam on August 20, 2021 at 10:19 pm

    "Apex predator of the waste" bruh it eats cacti

  24. jonbodhi on August 20, 2021 at 10:20 pm

    Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!! I failed against this horny bastard four different times until I watched your video. No one else clearly explained which way to run when he burrows. On my next try, I beat him without one faint. I wish I could give you a thousand upvotes!

  25. Chiver on August 20, 2021 at 10:20 pm

    Honestly tight spaces are better for Hammer users, You dont need to run to the monster it comes to you

  26. Joeygotjokes on August 20, 2021 at 10:21 pm

    Hi Arekkz. Are you ever going to continue this series for at least the rest of the exclusive monsters to World? This is a really well done, and informative series.

  27. Grimm Pasta on August 20, 2021 at 10:21 pm

    I wish I could use a team hahaha
    No gold ;-;

  28. zZzZzZz on August 20, 2021 at 10:21 pm

    i actually wanted to know how to find it lol.. it bearly spawns for me

  29. King Koopah on August 20, 2021 at 10:22 pm

    This was the wall for me until today. Tried constantly with the heavy bow gun to kill him, ended up having to switch to dual blades to finally get a kill.

    Unless you are incredibly proficient with it I don’t recommend using the heavy bowgun against him if you are running solo, its just too slow and clumsy when you constantly have to dodge charges. Ideally if you do then prepare the area with traps and bombs.

  30. fuggles the imp on August 20, 2021 at 10:22 pm

    Where the hell are its eyes?!

  31. FleoN on August 20, 2021 at 10:23 pm

    This monster is going to be the death of me, then again I suck at this game.

  32. Dragon Fire on August 20, 2021 at 10:24 pm

    How do you got his teeths ?? When he is dead ?

  33. sean small1999 on August 20, 2021 at 10:26 pm

    Whats the best armor to use while hunting diablos

  34. The Phat Jesus on August 20, 2021 at 10:26 pm

    I beat him in 1 try

  35. Clark A on August 20, 2021 at 10:27 pm

    God I’m so bad at diablos with the charge blade. I’m always way to aggressive and get caught in his charges

  36. R Garcia on August 20, 2021 at 10:28 pm

    Monster Hunter World is a piece of shit game, a game that requires zero skill, because you spend 50% of your time with NO control over your character as he flops on the ground, or stands with stars on his head and his thumb up his ass while some monster rapes him.

  37. raindrain1 on August 20, 2021 at 10:29 pm

    I’m just gonna chime in here, sometimes the best strategy to fight a monster giving you trouble is simply to… switch weapons. Diablos was giving me no end of trouble as a die-hard Long Sword user, because I (foolishly) kept trying to cut his tail, getting deflected a ton by his tail weight, tail swiped, and generally abused without getting much damage in. Switching to even a distinctly inferior Insect Glaive and just vaulting whenever he burrowed made my life MUCH easier, gave me a lot of free damage on his back and wings (unlike other wyverns he has zero aerial game), and I still got to cut his tail off. Similarly, Paolumu and Radobaan who were at least challenging with the LS (one refuses to give you windows to Spirit Slash for extended periods of time, the other has deflect armor you can’t break all over his body) were all but trivialized with the Heavy Bowgun. I still main LS, build nearly every sword I can, but having a backup weapon or two can make your hunt life much easier.

  38. infinet kaos on August 20, 2021 at 10:33 pm

    What armor is that

  39. Alan Vannieuwenhze on August 20, 2021 at 10:34 pm

    This is the only monster I had to use an SOS flare for, I played the rest of the story entirely solo.

  40. York Barnes on August 20, 2021 at 10:37 pm

    Diablos is broken and now I’m looking here

  41. Jacob Dehm on August 20, 2021 at 10:38 pm

    who all here is an insect glaive god like me?!?!

  42. Spectacular_Insanity on August 20, 2021 at 10:39 pm

    Fighting Diablos (or even tempered Black Diablos) with Guard lvl 4 or 5 on a lance or gunlance makes the fight almost trivial. Even more so if you’re like me and you run a defensive regen build (to deal with chip damage or minor screwups). Assuming you don’t take any big, devastating hits while overextending, lance and gunlance are great for these fights. If you have Guard at a high level (3 or higher at least to reduce knockback), you can actually do the fight more easily with any weapon that has a shield, if you don’t want to use lance or gunlance. Just keep in mind you take a lot more chip damage and stamina drain on other weapons types unless you have Guard maxed at lvl 5.

  43. Codeman_87 on August 20, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    i’ve done all of this, Im starting to think switch axe is just screwed against it

  44. Mollotovs on August 20, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    Im taking so much dmg from this monster, and i dunno why. It’s so fucking frustrating, because a barroth or a odogaron are easy to me, but this one two hits me every time bruh.

  45. Rollin That on August 20, 2021 at 10:44 pm

    I love how welcoming the monster hunter community is.

  46. Shiro26 on August 20, 2021 at 10:46 pm

    Diablos got more harder to kill in mhw cuz back in the later games its more easier to kill

  47. Blinded on August 20, 2021 at 10:46 pm

    Diablos just gave me the very first quest fail… and right after my head got big for rather easily defeating Rathalos too.

  48. lofi snapple on August 20, 2021 at 10:47 pm

    Why the fuck is everyone having very good armor and weapons at the begging of the game what am i doing wrong smh
