Stats[edit | edit source]

Battle[edit | edit source]

The Bunkerbeast has high damage resistance until it is Staggered. It has a high chain resistance, but its stagger point is low.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The party should aim for a preemptive strike to bring the Bunkerbeast's chain gauge up to 120% immediately, drastically reducing the effort necessary to defeat it. The player should begin with Cerberus or Relentless Assault to stabilize the chain gauge, then switch to Tri-disaster to stagger the Bunkerbeast. Once it is staggered, the party should switch to Cerberus to deal as much damage as possible.

Paradigm Pack[edit | edit source]

As an ally, the Bunkerbeast has one of the highest HP growths, its HP eventually exceeding 10,000 when fully maxed out with Potent or Vitality materials. It also has Improved Ward. These attributes, and early and extended favorable coverage in game press, made it the most popular Sentinel. Its passive resistance against Deprotect and Deshell makes it one of the best against monsters that debuff with those status effects.

Bunkerbeast does not naturally come with the Mediguard ability, so it is recommended to infuse a Level 20 Pulsework Knight into it. It is expensive to raise, requiring more materials than most other monsters that can achieve level 70. Seasoned players often prefer the defense against damage that Sentinels, such as Navidon and to a lesser extent, Pulsework Gladiator, are equipped with already. Both begin their leveling with materials of a higher grade than Bunkerbeast and go to the same maximum level, so players may find Bunkerbeast both adequate and comparatively cheap.
