  1. Use a Good Bow and Arrow – The most vulnerable part of the Hinox is its eye. Make sure you’re carrying a good Bow and Arrow to hit it where it hurts!
  2. Keep Your Distance – It’s essential to be patient, keep your distance from the Hinox and wait for the perfect moment to hit its eye.
  3. Hit the Eye – When you score a successful hit, the Hinox will stagger, fall over and stay stationary for a few seconds. Take this opportunity to hit its legs with your best heavy melee weapon!
  4. Use Your Best Melee Weapon – Get close and go ham with your best melee weapon (like a double-handed sword or an axe). This will help you deal heavy damage to the Hinox in that small window.
  5. Armored Hinox – Some Hinoxes wear wooden or metal leg armor. Fire Arrows will destroy wooden armor, while Shock Arrows will break metal ones. Remember that hitting an armored Hinox will also reduce your weapon’s durability.

By keeping in mind the tips mentioned above, you’ll be able to take down a Hinox with ease! And don’t forget to watch out for its bomb attacks – they can really pack a punch.
