Final Fantasy 7 Remake is filled with side quests and optional boss fights that will challenge you at your current level. Early on, a side quest battle that might surprise you with its difficulty is the battle against the Attack Dog from the On the Prowl side quest. In this guide we’ll give you some tips and tricks for how to beat the Attack Dog in Final Fantasy 7 Remake.
How to Beat the Attack Dog in Final Fantasy 7 Remake
The Attack Dog isn’t a particularly complicated fight. In fact, it’s very straightforward; it’s just that the dog hits real hard and takes more damage than probably anything you’ve fought to this point in Final Fantasy 7 Remake, other than the Scorpion.
The key for beating the Attack Dog is to guard a lot. Don’t just and hack and slash it otherwise you will get punished very hard. Block and chip away at its health while using Potions when needed.
Whether you’re using Cloud or Tifa mostly, make sure that you remember to use Unbridled Strength to get her Chi to the max level.
When you do Stagger the Attack Dog, use her entire Triangle combo (3x) to up the damage multiplier and then hit it with Divekicks and Braver shots from Cloud. This will make sure that you trigger the next phase as quickly as possible.
The Attack Dog will run away. Follow it and you’ll eventually come across Wymer who will point you in the correct direction of where it went. Go to it, and rinse and repeat the above to successfully beat the Attack Dog.
