Rewards

Score Reward
1st Place Luck Up Materia

Your reward for the Darts Minigame is the Luck Up Materia, obtained when beating Wedge's 1st place record. However, you won't receive the Materia until Wedge gives it to you directly in the second half of Chapter 4, so keep this in mind if you're jumping around to different chapters using the Chapter Select feature.

How to Win at Darts Checklist



Move your Control Stick slightly to adjust the cursor

When aiming your cursor during a game of Darts, be sure to move your control stick ever so slightly to adjust. If you move the control stick too far, the cursor will go flying off in another directly, and you'll lose the progress you made with aiming. Make only careful adjustments when aiming your throw!

The pointer can be hard to control, so if it's easier for you, try holding the controller stick with your thumb and index finger, like an arcade stick or crane game, which will allow you to move with more precision.

Throw when the circle shrinks to be within the cursor

To throw your darts directly at the cursor and get a Perfect throw, you'll need to wait until the moment the moving circle goes within the yellow circle of the cursor. If the moving circle is still outside of the yellow circle when you throw the dart, the aim will be a bit off, and there's a high chance you'll miss your mark.

As long as the outer circle is within the red circle pictured in the screenshot above, you should still be able to get a Great throw, which will not vary too far from your cursor's location.

There's also a gauge within the circle which indicates your time limit until the dart will be automatically thrown. Make sure to throw the dart the first or second time the circle shrinks to be within the cursor, or you'll run out of time and miss your mark.

Aim for a Bullseye

Winning at Darts is not as simple as getting as many points as possible – you start off with a score of 301, and your points will be decreased for that total. To win, you need to aim for a secore of exactly 0. The best way to accomplish this is to aim for five bullseyes for 50 x 5 = 250 points, and hit the 17 triangle's triple area for 51 points, achieving a total of the needed 301 points.

Alternately, you can aim to hit the 20 triangle's triple area five times, yielding 60 x 5 = 300 points. This will give you a bit more leeway if you miss once, as you'll have made up for some of the missing points with the other throws.

Finish the game in 6 or 7 throws

As Wedge achieved his first place ranking with a total of 8 throws, you'll need to win with a total of 6 or 7 throws to beat his score. Follow the advice above and practice until you can achieve this feat.

Thanks so much for this! Your thought about holding the control stick with the thumb and index finger really helped a lot. I have another suggestion too - play "Descendant of the Shinobi" on the jukebox. It's really calming.

    • 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!
