We recommend studying the very helpful in-game tutorial on the Chain Gauge and Stagger systems before you dive into the battle. A good thing to remember is to just patiently build attacks by alternating between the Commando and Ravager roles then inflict Stagger on an enemy. You will likely have seen this status in prior battles but it is worth examining closer at this point. When you’ve gleaned all the information you need, enter the battle proper.

Boss: PSICOM Marauder

This battle functions mainly as a tutorial battle for Staggering an enemy and, to this end, the boss has a very low Stagger threshold.

PSICOM Marauder Stats
Level / HP LV 25 / 600 HP
Strength / Magic 20 STR / 19 MAG
Stagger / Chain Res. / CP 104% / 0 CR / - CP
Vulnerabilities Physical (Halves)
Common Drop / Rare Drop Credit Chip / None

This high-ranking officer comes with two PSICOM Enforcers. Get rid of them first and, while doing so, you’re likely to Stagger the Marauder. He halves physical damage, but that won’t do him much good since the damage is doubled once you Stagger him. Be on the lookout for the boss’s charging stance - he’ll shoot a couple of Thunder spells at one character, so heal if your HP enters the 50s range. Other than the danger from his magic, he is nothing to worry about!

Six people, from very different backgrounds, get thrown together in a series of tumultuous events. A Pulse fal'Cie (a demi-god) has been found in the seaside town of Bodhum, a place where the fates of everyone converge and the discovery sets in motion a chain of events that will change the world forever. An innocent fireworks display in the town soon turns nasty when government soldiers storm the peaceful celebration and commit everyone to the Purge (sending individuals "contaminated" by the Pulse fal'Cie into exile). This is where your story and legend begins. Can you fight fate?
