Final Fantasy VII Remake Guide

Take advantage of enemy weaknesses. Soldiers are weak to Fire magic, robotic enemies are weak to Lightning magic. Use the Assess materia, once you obtain it, to identify further enemy weaknesses.

A good tactic is to use your standard attack (the square button) to build up ATB. Finish off weaker enemies in a group with your standard attacks, allowing you to build up ATB to unleash magic and commands on tougher enemies.

If you're up against a fast-moving enemy (like the Shinra Guard Dogs), you may miss even when using a command like Braver. A good tactic is to use magic at first rather than abilities. Magic seems to hit (rather than miss) more reliably; the magic will also quite possibly stagger the enemy. If the enemy is staggered, you can then use commands like Braver which are now essentially guaranteed to hit, as staggered enemies are stuck in one place and can't move around. Using this technique, you won't waste ATB on using abilities only to have the abilities miss.

At the same time, take into account that magic uses not just ATB but also MP. Abilities only use ATB, meaning one less thing to worry about i.e. you don't have to be concerned about MP running low with abilities.

Blocking is also a good idea to reduce damage from enemies (press R1 on your controller), and also builds up ATB!

Just as in the original game, you can heal your party members outside of battle using items and magic. This means you don't have to heal as often within battles, allowing you to focus on dealing out damage. You should also take advanatge of spots where you can sleep. Sleeping fully restores your HP and MP - keep an eye out for things like seats which can be slept on.

If you learn an ability from a weapon (e.g. Braver from the Buster Sword), then you can use that ability with ANY weapon.

Final Fantasy VII Remake Steal Guide

You can buy the Steal materia from Chadley, for 100 Gil, in Chapter 8 after finishing Battle Intel Report 7. Then equip the materia to a weapon or armor. Using the Steal command will use up one ATB point, and stealing successfully is not guaranteed; it can take many attempts.

N.B. This is not a complete Steal List. It aims to feature only the more significant items you can steal in the FF7 Remake.
