This is a page about the ATB gauge from Final Fantasy 7 Remake (FF7 Remake). Read on to find out what it does and how to best utilize it in your battle against Shinra!
The ATB Gauge
|How to Fill the ATB Gauge||
Continuously press to attack
Your ATB Gauge will also fill naturally over time based on your Speed stat, going from empty to full in 20-30 seconds on average.
The ATB Gauge has a hidden max value of 2000 as well. At the start of battle, each character will start with a random amount of ATB that can be boosted by the First Strike Materia or the Whistlewind Scarf. The amount of possible ATB a character can begin a battle with is listed in the table below:
|First Strike Level||Starting ATB Amount|
*There is a high chance it will start at 2000.
|How to Fill||Fill Rate|
|Hit an enemy with a Unique Ability||Enemy dependent|
|Use the ATB Boost Materia||Doubles current ATB|
|Hit an enemy with Parry (★2 only)||40-100|
|Equip the ATB Stagger materia and stagger an enemy||★1: 400, ★2: 650, ★3: 900|
|Equip the ATB Assist materia and use two abilities in a row (use the second ability during the first's animation)||★1: 400, ★2: 500, ★3: 600 (also increases other party member's ATB)|
|Equip the Skill Master materia and use 3 different abilities||★1: 400, ★2: 650, ★3: 900|
When you have at least 1 ATB gauge filled, you will become able to use your characters' unique Abilities, cast Spells, or use Items. Summons are also tied to the ATB gauge and can be invoked if the required materia is also set.
Battle Commands can be set to + a face button.
While typically the gauge fills at a steady pace based on your Speed stat, there are a variety of factors that can speed this up or slow it down.
|Inactive Party Member||0.35x|
|While under the Haste status effect||1.4x|
|While under the Slow status effect||0.6x|
|While under the Sleep or Stop status effect||Does not fill|
|While in the middle of an ability animation or stunned||Does not fill|
*Does not affect inactive party members.
Waiting until you have a full ATB gauge will allow you deal more damage all at once, but against trickier enemies it may be smarter to hold onto one bar for an emergency Cure if necessary. Choose your strategy based on the situation!
