The beast, Bandersnatch FFXV is a huge beast who has an incredibly strong and long tail that is able to sweep the party off the ground. However, it is weak against Polearms as well as Lightning. When the beast spins it takes out its very long and strong tail and whips it around before charging at the player. More often than not, this move is followed by a powerful side bash. So try dodging these heavy attacks.

When you are in the Malmalam thicket, you will be able to make use of the command called warp to point, warp high up on the tree. When you have downed the beast Bandersnatch, you will be able to trigger and make use of the team technique known as a cross-chain. Just like other enemies who are huge in stature Noctis will try to fend off the attacks done by Bandersnatch by making use of the fire flask.
