Vs. Shinra Thugs Battle Guide

Battle #1

Vs. Shinra Thugs #1

Enemies
Security Officer ×1
Grenadier ×2
Sentry Gun Prototype ×1

Human Enemies are Weak to Fire Spells While Mechanical Enemies are Weak to Lighning

This Batlle Challenge has multiple human and mechanical enemies in it. Use Fire magic on the Security officer and Grenadier, but use Lightning on Sentry Gun Prototype instead. It is best to focus on the Grenadiers first, due to their high damaging grenades.

Battle #2

Vs. Shinra Thugs #2

Enemies
Flametrooper ×2

Attack from Behind

Flametroopers are resistant to physical attacks. Rely on Fire spells for big damage. Attack from behind when you have to do damage with physcial attacks. Do enough damage to their back and their gas canister will explode, doing significant damage and putting them into the pressured state!

Battle #3

Vs. Shinra Thugs

Enemies
Shock Trooper ×1
Sentry Ray ×2

Steadfast Block for Faster ATB Charge

This fight will have you blocking a lot. Having Steadfast Block materia will help block more damage and give you the ATB needed to cast spells for this fight. Take out the Shock Trooper with the help of Fire magic. The Sentry Rays will be easier to fight as they will be sitting ducks at this point!

Battle #4

Vs. Shinra Thugs #4

Enemies
Riot Trooper ×1
Slug-Ray ×2

Focus on the Slug-Rays Then Deal with the Riot Trooper

The Riot Trooper is slow, you can focus the Slug-Rays with no problem to deal with the Riot Trooper one on one. Make sure to attack the Riot Trooper from behind or use Fire magic to deal with him effectively.

Battle #5

Vs. Shinra Thugs #5

Enemies
Sweeper ×1
Sentry Launcher ×1

Destory the Sentry Launcher First

The Sentry Launcher can deal a lot of damage to you if left alone. Try to destroy it as fast as possible, get in close and it will have a hard time hitting you. Fighting the Sweeper by itself will be a simpler fight. Just stay behind it and attack from there. Both are weak to Lightning magic, so fill up your ATB and cast those Thunders!

      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!
