Final Fantasy 7 (PS1): How To Beat Emerald Weapon
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 is also incredibly durable. It can still be defeated with the right strategy.
The 20-minute limit on the Emerald Weapon boss fight is the first obstacle. Although it is possible to defeat the super boss within this time limit, it’s best not to risk it. Therefore, players should head to
Look for an enemy known as Ghost Ship and the Junon Underwater reactor. They can use the Morph command on the guidebook to convert it into a Guide Book. This can then be traded to the 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.
