This is a guide to the Shinra Combat Simulator in Final Fantasy 7 Remake (FF7R). This guide will explain how to unlock the combat simulator, as well as obtainable rewards. If you are having trouble beating battle challenges, read on for tips and strategy!

What Is the Shinra Combat Simulator?

Get various rewards for completing battles

The Shinra Combat Simulator is a facility inside of the Shinra Building that allows you to take on successive battles in order to receive various rewards. Of these rewards, the EXP Up Materia and Gil Up Materia are very useful, so we highly recommend going after them.

Unlock all battles after beating the game

All battles inside of the Combat Simulator become available after clearing the main story of FF7R. After clearing the game, you'll also have access to Chapter Select, which you can use to go to Chapter 17 and find the Simulator near the beginning.

Can be done multiple times to farm EXP

After completing a battle in the Combat Simulator, you can take it on again to receive EXP and Gil. Since the Gil Up and EXP Up Materia are both found here, you can equip them to rake in even more gil and EXP while you take on these challenges.

Go in equipped with the Lightning MateriaーTheir weakness

The Cutters you will have to fight is weak to Lightning based magic, so be sure and equip the Lightning Materia. If you can stagger it and then unleash Thundara or Thundaga on it, it will drop in no time.

Constantly change control of characters and attack from behind

All of the Cutters' attacks come from their front. If you can position both characters on either side of one and aim to constantly attack from the rear, you'll have a much easier time.
