Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Guide

1 week ago · Guide Information



Her happy-go-lucky style and her no-nonsense attitude to life make her a fun addition to Class Zero. Her weapon is highly unique and requires a deft hand to wield it.

There is no beating around the bush with Cater; what you see is what you get. Her attitude to life is such that nothing can get her down or defeat her emotionally. She can come across as a little too blunt at times but you always know where you stand with her at least.

Cater is a ranged character that uses magicite pistols as her weapons. While her weapons don't deal as much damage as others, she is quick and can move around the battlefield with ease. With Charged Shot, her weapon will automatically charge on its own when you're not firing, with the maxed out shot dealing quite a bit of damage, although its range and speed suffer a bit compared to the regular shots.

You do not need to equip her with magic, as she gets access to fire, lightning and ice shots for her weapon. This allows her to use something like Cure instead, making her an all-around character. Despite this, though, she does suffer from low HP and Strength, but makes up for it with good Magic and speed. She takes some time to master but when you do, you can unleash her on a variety of different enemies with a large amount of success.
