Final Fantasy 7 (PS1): How To Beat Emerald Weapon
Sephiroth may serve final Fantasy 7Although he is the biggest bad in the game, the silver-haired super-soldier is far from the most difficult boss. The title’s two super bosses, Ruby and Emerald Weapon, share the honor. It will take some effort to defeat them, but it can be made easier with a little planning.
Though Ruby is widely considered the more challenging of the pair, Emerald Weapon is certainly no walk in the park. Final Fantasy 7’s Emerald Weapon has a staggering 1 million HP. It also boasts an impressive offensive arsenal. It can still be defeated with the right strategy. The 20-minute limit on the Emerald Weapon boss battle is the first obstacle. Although it is possible to defeat the boss within this time limit, it is best not to risk it. Players should visit the Junon Underwater reactor to find the enemy Ghost Ship. The Morph command will allow them to transform it into a Guide Book. This can be traded with Kalm Traveler to receive an orb of Underwater material, eliminating the time limit.
Although many strategies to defeat Emerald Weapon require some grinding to increase the stats of each party member, it is possible to do so without much effort. That said, for this strategy to work, players will need to obtain a Gold Chocobo, either through breeding or defeating Ruby Weapon. This will enable players to obtain Knights of Round materia. Once they have it, an orb of HP absorbs material can refill the user’s HP every time it is used.
The battle can be made much easier by this alone, but it is possible to make it even more simple with a bit of effort. Players can also master the orb of Counter material and pair it with Mime to remove any challenge. Finally, they can equip the W-Summon material. To increase the HP of their main attacker to 9,999 and to boost their Magic stat, players can equip HP Plus or Magic Plus material. However, Emerald Weapon deals 1,111 damage multiplied by the number of materials they have. This means that if a party member has more than eight materials, they will instantly die.
