2 Head back down and approach the steel ladder on the other side of the area. Go up to find another Mako gas-filled area.
3 Grab onto the Mako Purifier and clear out the gas along the west side of the room first (go through the broken steel fence to reach it). Afterwards, go back through the broken fence and operate the controls of sealed door to the east. Once it is open, grab onto the Mako Purifier again and go through it. Finally, clean up the last two pockets of Mako gas here.
4 Before going up via the elevator, walk up to the northwestern corner of the area and climb up the boxes. There is a small area here with a tall stack of crates that is hiding the Comet materia.
5 Go up via the elevator.

When the boss clings to the ceiling during the second phase of the fight, force it down to the ground by attacking any of its legs with Fire again.
