How To Interrupt Behemoths In Dauntless

While each of the Behemoths has its own tell, the best way to see when you can perform a stagger is when you see red lines around its head. During this window, if you can deal enough damage you’ll be able to stagger the beast and it will be open to some brutal follow up attacks from you and your team. Here are the openings for each of the gigantic monsters: 

  • Shrike: During the flying charge attack. 
  • Skraev: Also during the flying charge attack. 
  • Skarn: As the beast rears up on its hind legs. 
  • Shrowd: The flying attack during the blind phase. 
  • Rezakiri: During the swooping attack. 
  • Stormclaw: As he charges at you. 
  • Embermane: Another one that is vulnerable during its charge attack. 
  • Gnasher: Just before a charging attack there is a small hop that can be punished.
