Vs. 3-C SOLDIER Candidates Battle Guide

Battle #1

Vs. 3-C SOLDIER Candidates 1.jpg

Enemies
Unknown Entity ×1
Enhanced Shock Trooper ×1

Try to hit the Enhanced Shock Trooper as soon as you can with Firaga to quickly stagger it and take it down, then divert your attention to the Unknown Entity. Another Fira or Firaga will help stagger it unless it goes down before that. The Enhanced Shock Trooper's Twister can trip you up if it isn't handled quickly so watch out!

Battle #2

Vs. 3-C SOLDIER Candidates 2.jpg

Enemies
Zenene ×1

The Zenene is quickly pressured by magic or Triple Slash, so if you keep up the assault it won't get a chance to do much at all.

Battle #3

Vs. 3-C SOLDIER Candidates 3.jpg

Enemies
Sledgeworm×1

One of the more annoying fights in this challenge, this glorified game of whack-a-mole can end poorly if you aren't careful. Weak to Lightning magic, try to hit it with Thundara or Thundaga as soon as it pops out. Be careful with the timing, though, as you have a chance of missing and wasting your MP. A few good hits with magic should stagger it, allowing you to go to town on it.

Battle #4

Vs. 3-C SOLDIER Candidates 4.jpg

Enemies
Armored Shock Trooper ×1

Incredibly weak to Lightning, a 2 shots of Thundaga should get the Armored Shock Trooper very close to stagger and death so you can swoop in for the kill.

Battle #5

Enemies
M.O.T.H. Unit ×1

High in HP and a bit dangerous up close, once again hit this nuisance with Lightning magic to take down its HP. Having Elemental linked to Lightning will make is Shock, High Voltage, and Ultrahigh Voltage attacks either heal or do no damage to you depending on the materia level so go wild!

>>1 There is no reason to have ATB Assist Materia since these are one-on-one fights
