This page has all the details on running away in the game Final Fantasy VIII Remastered (FF8, FFVIII). Read on to see information on how to run away, as well as its advantages and disadvantages in the game.
List of Contents
Running away is a method to quickly end a battle. Running away gives the players minimal to no rewards depending on the actions taken before running.
Holding the L2 and R2 Buttons will make your party members show a running animation away from the players. After a while, the party will be able to escape successfully. There is no Run Away command in the Menu.
Setting the ATB Mode to wait will pause the ATB Gauge from filling up. This means even enemies won't be able to take action while you are choosing commands. Go to one of your abilities and let it stay there while you run away. The party will be able to escape while the enemies are not attacking.
This is both an advantage and a disadvantage. Raising your level in FF8 means that Enemy levels will also raise. Raising your levels will increase the overall difficulty of the game and you won't be able to maximize the effects of Stat Boosting abilities from your GF. For more information about Stat Boosting abilities, see the link below.
