Banbaro - Tips & Tricks

Banbaro Overview

Banbaro Overview

Banbaro is a bipedal herbivore known for its large antlers. Although it won't attack on sight, stay near it too long and it will be aggressive enough to attack.

Found In Hoarfrost Reach

The Banbaro can only be found roaming the snowy grounds of Hoarfrost Reach. Players can only access this area with the Iceborne DLC!

Preparing For Banbaro

Bring the Rocksteady Mantle

For Melee users, finding an opening can be difficult due to the number of Banbaro's attacks that causes tremors. A Rocksteady Mantle will help you continue your assault even when near him.

Use the Tremor Resistance Gem

The Tremor Resistance Gem is also good when you want to bring another mantle instead of the Rocksteady One. This is a Level 3 Gem requiring a Level 3 slot.
