List of Contents
An autonomous robot discarded by Shinra. As part of its self-repair protocol, it used nearby scrap material to repair its body. It knocks down foes by swinging its arm with a wrecking ball attached.
Normally, attacks do not affect its stagger gauge, but inflicting a certain amount of physical damage does make it susceptible to staggering.

Aerith will be your main damage dealer in this battle. Control Aerith and focus on damaging the wrecking ball with her basic attacks and Lightning spells to quickly stagger the Chromogger. Do not forget to use Arcane Ward for a faster battle.
|1||The Chromogger will slowly move toward the active character and use melee attacks like Skull Cracker.|
|2||It will sometimes release Silencing fumes and use Whirling Smokestack|
Hitting its wrecking ball with magic fills up the Chromogger's stagger gauge quickly. Have Aerith do this since her basic attacks deal magic damage and she can also cast spells while she is at it. Since it is weak to lightning attacks, cast Thunder (or higher) on the wrecking ball to deal massive damage and quickly stagger it at the same time.
The Chromogger will try to close its gap between your active character. When it is already close, prepare to dodge its melee attacks since it is slow but deals heavy damage, especially the Skull Cracker.
Occasionally, the Chromogger will release red fumes that deal damage and inflict Silence on contact or blue fumes with its Whirling Smokestack ability that deal damage and inflict paralysis on contact.
Be extra careful when it uses Whirling Smokestack, as the Chromogger might pulverize your character with Skull Cracker while it is paralyzed.

The mocap actors for the game only just start work.
This prove the game is still in the very early stage of development.
So the early trailer for part 2 is likely be in 2022 and the release date is likely 2023-2024.
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!
