Deathclaw uses physical attacks and magical laser attacks; the rays spin around it, and fly out in straight lines and are impossible to phase through when they return to the Deathclaw. It can draw its claws together to form a single large laser beam. It employs Dark-elemental attacks and is weak to shields, machinery and Fire. It swipes with its tail if the player stays behind it. Its claw attacks can be blocked.
Ignis can bestow the Fire element to Noctis's weapon so he can deal more damage. Elemancy is also potent, and mixing some with Healcast might be useful. Its lasers can be avoided by point-warping and by staying behind it; this way, the player can also get blindside-strikes, which may link with Gladiolus if he is nearby. Unleashing a Technique makes the users invincible during the animation, which can be used for strategic advantage when Deathclaw starts some of its tougher attacks.
