How to Beat Ultima Weapon | Final Fantasy VIII

This is a walkthrough for the boss Ultima Weapon from the game Final Fantasy VIII (FF8, FFVIII). Read on for tips and strategy about how to beat Ultima Weapon, including Ultima Weapon's stats and other useful information.

How to Beat Ultima Weapon

Preparation

Card-Mod Ability, Laguna/ Gilgamesh Card, Initiative ability, Item Command, Meltdown Magic / Doomtrain. Reduce your Party's HP to a critical level if possible.

Moveset

Light Pillar, which kills a single party member, Quake, Meteor, and Gravija

Strategy

Have your party member with initiative immediately use Holy War. If this item is not available then let each party member use a Hero on themselves. Immediately cast Meltdown or Doomtrain once everyone is on Invincible (and Critical) Status. Once the preparations are ready, keep unleasing your offensive Limitbreaks and have other characters on standby for reapplying Holy War/Hero on your party members.

Drawing Eden

This is the only way to draw the GF Eden before disc 4. Be sure to do so before the battle is over.
