In order to clear Monster Variants Pt. 1, you'll have to defeat three unique monster variants. These are kind of like “shiny” versions of enemies, in that they will have different colors, as well as increased HP / attack, and different battle patterns.

Crosshair Mark

Enemies that have a crosshair shown next to their name are variants. You can check these both in battle, and via enemy intel reports.

Easy to find in Odd Jobs

    • The gameplay isn't enough to scoff at either, even without talking about the story, I would say that this is one of the best games on the PS4

      If you complete the game and go to Chapter 17 with Chapter Select, you will be able to find Chadley near the start of the chapter and access all the VR missions with any three characters of your choice. Hope this helps!
