I finally reached fatalis and am trying to solo him. I usually main longsword but im not doing too well :(

Ive tried zsd switchaxe and it works well but its very tough to get both head breaks and i need a lot of eyes.

Is the greatsword head grapples a good way to break the head and beat him?

Any other builds good vs him or what works well?

Thanks.

Specifically for headbreaks, I used sticky LBG since you can just target the head the entire time irrespective of what fatalis does. The only concern is, of course, that you're a gunner so you're squishy AF. Just about all his attacks except for the gentlest touches will oneshot you without a divine blessing proc.

Regardless of weapon type, do the ghillie mantle + heavy artillery tricks.

If you're looking for head breaks, the best strategy is probably to work on your cone baiting. Hanging out at a specific distance in front of him often baits him to use flame cone after his exploding ground lines attack. This video demonstrates what you're looking for. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IZFvdHhmpys

For weapon, anything that can do some burst damage. GS and DB are nice.

Insect Glaive. Easy to avoid his attacks and land hits on the head if you know how to use descending thrust. Extracts on the tail heals you for quite a lot too.

Also, you get two CC effects on Fatalis for more head action. 1 for mounting and 1 for paralyze dust if you brought the right kinsect.

I just beat him for the first time solo with greatsword. I broke his head twice like the last minute and finished at 29 minutes lol.

I now remade a 4 piece fatalis set and tweaked some things.

Only about 7 evil eyes to go lol.

Congrats on your first successful Fatalis hunt. It gets easier as you get more gear so hopefully the next few hints don’t cut it as close.
