This page will detail how to defeat all of the Rank 2 opponents of Fort Condor. Fort Condor is a new mini-game found in the INTERmission DLC for Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade.

How to beat Jessie

(1 of 2) Jessie, a Rank 2 opponent, can be found sitting outside the Seventh Heaven bar

Jessie, a Rank 2 opponent, can be found sitting outside the Seventh Heaven bar (left), consider using this Loadout against her. (right)

Suggested Board Jessie’s Board
Assassin Board I Battalion Board II
Suggested Vanguard Units Suggested Ranged Units Suggested Defense Units
Shock Trooper Grenadier Blast-Ray
Helitrooper Elite Grenadier
Elite Security Officer

Once you reach Rank 2, head to where the Seventh Heaven bar is in the Sector 7 Slums and you’ll find Jessie sitting outside. Taking a look at her Units, you’ll notice she’s gone with a mix of Defense and Ranged Units, accompanied with a Guard Dog as her sole Vanguard Unit. What’s more important to note however, is the Board she’s using, the Batallion Board II. This is a tricky board to play against as it favors Defense with increased HP for both the Headquarters and her Outpost. To make matters even more tricky, you’ll notice she has four Materia to play with, all of which will throw a spanner in the works.

(1 of 2) Begin by placing a Grenadier on the left to deal with her first wave of Defense Units

Begin by placing a Grenadier on the left to deal with her first wave of Defense Units (left), then you can send a Blast-Ray up the right flank to start working on the Outpost. (right)

As such, you’ll want to counter the Board with the Assassin Board you won at the end of Rank 1, this will give you access to the useful Haste Materia and the ATB will fill quicker. For your Units, be sure to include the Elite versions of the Grenadier and Security Officer while a single Blast-Ray should be enough to deal with the Guard Dog when she deploys it. Save your Fire Materia for when she deploys her Missile Launcher, Blast-Ray or the Grenadier Barracks, don’t waste it on the other fodder. Your reward for victory here is the Grenadier Barracks (Ranged) and x3 Condor Coins.

How to beat Roche

(1 of 2) Roche, a Rank 2 opponent, can be found on the path to the train station

Roche, a Rank 2 opponent, can be found on the path to the train station (left), consider using this Loadout against him. (right)

Suggested Board Roche’s Board
Assassin Board I Assassin Board II
Suggested Vanguard Units Suggested Ranged Units Suggested Defense Units
Shock Trooper Grenadier Blast-Ray
Helitrooper Elite Grenadier
Elite Security Officer

To find the final opponent for Rank 2, make your way towards the train station and you’ll come across the eccentric Roche, who you may remember from your tussle on the bike back in Chapter 4 of the Main Scenario. Roche is a step-up from any of the other players you’ve faced yet and may take a few attempts before you’re able to beat him. He uses high cost Units, with the Elite Helitrooper and Monodrive among his most frequent Units. To make matters worse, both the Cutter and M.O.T.H. Unit has plenty of HP and his Assassin Board II will allow him to place units at a fast pace.

(1 of 2) Double up on the Cutter Unit

Double up on the Cutter Unit (left), the Sentry Gun is a useful Unit to deal with Roche’s threats. (right)

You’ll almost certainly have to use the Assassin Board I yourself here to be able to keep up with him and then consider bringing along some high cost Units yourself. The Sentry Gun is a fantastic Unit for this match (purchase from Old Snapper) as it can target the Elite Helitroopers that Roche will deploy often. The Blast-Ray and the Elite Riot Trooper should be more than enough to handle the deadly Cutter and you should utilize Fire Materia against the M.O.T.H. Unit when deployed. Victory for this match will reward you with the Elite Helitrooper (Vanguard) Unit and x3 Condor Coins.

Rewards for completing Rank 2

Once you’ve beaten both opponents at Rank 2, you’ll obtain the Batallion Board II that Jessie was using, along with updating the wares available at Old Snapper’s Condor Coin Shop. Be sure to pick up all of the available Units there before progressing to the next Rank.
