Walkthrough Part 6 – Escape from Midgar Strategy

1) Breaking out of the cell

After you go to sleep, there will be an attack on the Shinra Building. Escape from the cell and follow the trail of blood. You can obtain 2 Potions along the way. Take time to use the save point as well.

3) Boss: Hundred Gunner

Hundred Gunner Boss Guide
Hundred Gunner is fought with Aerith, Barrett, and Red XIII. Take the time to remove any lightning magic materia from Cloud or Tifa and equip them to any of those three to help in the fight, as the boss is extremely weak to it. Barrett does very well with any lighting elemental magic on his weapon since he will be the only one able to reliably inflict physical damage to the boss. Have Aerith and Red XIII exclusively use magic attacks. Use Red XIII’s Limit Break on the boss as well.

4) Boss: Heli Gunner

Heli Gunner Boss Guide
The second boss has a similar weakness to the first one, though it will hit harder and attack more frequently. Be ready with healing items and Aerith’s Limit Break when you get too low on HP.

5) Boss: Rufus and Dark Nation

Rufus Boss Guide
Make sure to equip useful materia like Restore and any lightning spells on Cloud before fighting Rufus and Dark Nation.

Dark Nation will cast Barrier and MBarrier on Rufus and itself, so focus on bursting it before it has the chance to fully buff its master. Lightning magic is especially effective against Dark Nation. When only Rufus remains, bombard him with magic to quickly defeat him.

6) Motorbike Battle

Cloud gets on the bike, ready to protect the car. Attack the enemies using the sword before they do serious damage to the vehicle. A boss battle will begin as you make for Midgar’s gate.

7) Boss: Motor Ball

Motor Ball Boss Guide
When the battle begins, tap L1 and R1 at the same time to face the boss immediately. As it is another mech boss, lightning magic will once again deal major damage. Just make sure you have enough HP to prepare for its Rolling Fire attack which can do around 80 to 90 damage to the entire party.
