Stoneshears is an enemy in Final Fantasy XV fought in Leide. They spawn on the beach opposite from Galdin Quay. They are unremarkable enemies that are weak to greatswords, shields and ice. They use piercing attacks that ignore the player's Vitality. When vulnerable, they helplessly lie on their backs. They swipe at the party with their claws and their attacks can be parried and blocked.
