Final Fantasy 7 Remake doesn’t give you access to a whole ton of weapons, but each one that you do get can change your play style in a meaningful way. In this article, we’ve picked out what we think are the best weapons for every character in Final Fantasy 7 Remake.
For Cloud, we have to go with the Twin Stinger. Once fully upgraded, its physical and magic attack stats sit at a comfortable 73 each, which isn’t the greatest, and certainly not quite as powerful as the iconic Buster Sword. However, the Twin Stinger’s balanced stats make it the most versatile weapon you can equip on Cloud.
Decent, balanced stats aren’t the only thing this weapon has to offer, though. If you take a look at its upgrade tree, you’ll also notice that it offers a lot of max MP nodes, greatly increasing your MP pool, along with increased magic and elemental damage. With the Twin Stinger, Cloud arguably becomes one of the best characters to put your Elemental Materia on because of the increased damage output.
And even beyond that, the Twin Stinger also offers a lot of increased MP regeneration nodes, letting you recover MP quicker in combat. It’s balanced and allows you to conserve MP while dealing strong magical damage, making it the best weapon for Cloud, especially on Hard Mode.
