Boss Strategy Guide

The Valkyrie

The Valkyrie

Where it Appears Weaknesses
Collapsed Highway Thunder

Because The Valkyrie mostly stays in the air and out of reach, it'll be hard for most characters except Barret to reach him. Be sure to combo Barret's weapon with Elemental Materia and Lightning Materia so his shots will hit for increased damage.

How to Defeat The Valkyrie - Key Points

  • Hide behind the wall to avoid its bullets and rockets
  • Equip Elemental Materia + Lightning Materia to Barret to deal consistent damage
  • Dodge out of the way of its laser
