Leviathan Movesets

This battle is confusing as it is cinematic. Leviathan will often come up from below, or from the water, leaving very little openings through which Noctis can attack initially. This sequence won't last long, however; though Leviathan can be a troublesome opponent. The Hydraean, as Leviathan is otherwise known, will also use water projectiles to attack Noctis, giving him very little breathing room, if any.

How to Beat Leviathan

This is more a cinematic battle than a strategic one. Leviathan will initially have the upper hand, keeping Noctis on the backtrack. However, further into the battle, Noctis will gain the power of the Armiger (even with an incomplete collection of Royal Arms). With this power, you will be able to endlessly use the power of the Armiger, warp at will, and gain a boost in HP. Whereas you should keep point-warping initially, this time, you can warp-attack Leviathan; alternatively, you can warp in and out to attack and avoid any water projectiles or counter-attacks.

With a tactic aimed at maximizing the powers of the Armiger, Leviathan will soon become another summon in your arsenal.

      Hi! Thank you for your question :)
      Noctis needs to sneak behind the Black Chocobo until Ignis distracts it. The player should keep the chocobo inside his field of view to see if it is looking around, if so, Noctis needs to duck (hold square). Keep on doing this while also moving towards the chocobo until Ignis distracts it. While it is distracted, pick up the glasses then run away before the timer ends.
