Since 1987, Final Fantasy has remained a staple in games and is widely regarded as one of the best series of all time. Among the countless classics in the series, Final Fantasy 7: The First Soldier stands above the rest and is arguably the most memorable. With several videos games and spin-offs, Square Enix decided to make Final Fantasy 7 worldwide and explore a new frontier: battle royale.
The Tutorial – Final Fantasy 7: The First Soldier
After you create your Soldier, the game takes you into a training session to learn the basics. While you can always access training mode to continue perfecting your skills, it’s important to pay attention to the first session. Final Fantasy 7 does a great job explaining how every attack works, how to loot items, and how to win.
The other benefit of using initial training is that you will be free. After returning to training mode, you will be faced with other players who want to hone their skills. While you cannot die during practice, other players can attack you and cause chaos.
Unlike most battle royale games, Final Fantasy 7: The First Soldier takes each player into Midgar in their personal helicopter. Not only can you customize the look and feel of your helicopter, but that means you have full control to choose which areas of the map you want to land on. Instead of trying to make your way to certain attractions, you can simply point the helicopter to where you want it to go.
We recommend sticking to the suburbs of Midgar when first starting out. That means areas like Area 5 Terminal, Cathedral, Greenhouse, and Colosseum will be safer to land than areas like Corneo’s Mansion or Sector 7 Undercity. The helicopter will start its route randomly, so be sure to remember some drop locations depending on where the helicopter starts going into Midgar.
Inventory Slots – Final Fantasy 7: The First Soldier
When you get to Midgar, you will only have your melee weapon. Searching the map for better weapons and gear is essential to success in Final Fantasy 7, but you’ll need to know how much you can carry in your inventory.
In addition to melee weapons, you can carry two guns, so we recommend using an assault rifle and then choosing the second weapon you’re most comfortable with. There are shotguns, snipers, sub-machine guns, and high-powered pistols to choose from. Although the game is in third-person with a shoulder-mounted camera, you can aim the gun sights for a more precise shot.
When using magic, you can carry 3 Materia, magic can be very powerful, but it can also be dangerous if you used it carelessly. There is friendly fire and self-burning in Final Fantasy 7: The First Soldier, so is careful where you aim fireballs and lightning bolts. We strongly recommend bringing Cure, as you can use it unlimited times if you have enough MP. For healing items, you can carry three Potions of each type.
