Fair Game (Free Mode) Tips and Strategies

Fair Game General Tips

Fair Game Free mode
Using characters with strong area attacks is the best way to clear the challenge in the fastest manner possible. Increase your party's defense stat by equipping better armor and muscle gems so your party won't need to rely on Sharla's heals.

Recommended Characters

Shulk Icon Shulk Reyn Icon Reyn Melia Icon Melia

Your character choice will depend on when you tackle this challenge, but the characters that gain strong area attacks early are Melia, Reyn, and Shulk. Melia's Blaze in particular, can rip through the enemies with ease and can guarantee you an S rank.

Wave 1 Enemies and Strategies

Enemy (quantity) Level
Black Flamii (x2) 27
Oasis Flamii (x2) 28

Nothing noteworthy. Focus on using area damaging arts like Stream Edge to clear the wave.

Wave 2 Enemies and Strategies

Enemy (quantity) Level
Leg Skeeter (x2) 28
Crowd Flier (x1) 29

Avoid using Shulk's Monado Arts, and save them for the next wave. Utilize your Chance Arts too to build up the party gauge.

Wave 3 Enemies and Strategies

Enemy (quantity) Level
Archer Tirkin (x3) 27 (x2) & 30 (x1)
Gust Vang (x2) 28

This is the best wave to use a Chain Attack. With Shulk as the party leader and Melia second, use the arts Stream Edge, Discharge, War Swing, Buster (if chain continues). This combo is enough to destroy this wave completely.
