Barret's Backstory and Profile

Barret Wallace.png

The leader of an independent Avalanche cell in Midgar, Barret was disavowed by the old guard for his extreme methods that attracted too much attention. He subsequently came to Midgar, where he resolved to continue to pursue his vendetta against Shinra with a small but trusted group of followers. When not fighting against the corporation, he and his comrades serve in the neighborhood watch and keep the people safe─including his daughter Marlene, who he dotes on as a loving father.

Barret feels really weak in the demo. Hope he scales up well later in the game and not just become a guy that kills out of range enemies.

There's something irritating about this character.. Maybe, he's attitude.. but can't tell.. at least he deals massive damage..

      Thank you for giving me hope! I didn't know it was coming out on xbox! But maybe at that point you might as well wait for a PS5 version and play with a PS5?
