Getting Doomrats to Spawn in Rat Problem in Final Fantasy 7 Remake

Once you clear the first couple of chapters in Final Fantasy 7 Remake and make it to the Sector 7 slums of Midgar, you’ll be able to start taking on optional side quests for various characters. The item shop owner will have a quest for you, titled Rat Problem, where you have to kill a bunch of Doomrats in the outskirts of the slums.

Head to the objective marker on the map where you’ll find a congregation of Wererats. Kill all of them, and Cloud will remark that those enemies weren’t very dangerous at all. They were not, in fact, the Doomrats that you were tasked with killing. Thankfully, getting them to spawn is pretty easy and straightforward.

After killing the Wererats, head back to the item shop and talk to the owner. After that, head back to the objective marker on your map where you killed the Wererats, and this time, the Doomrats will be there in their place.

These enemies are also pretty easy to kill, though they do have a fair bit more health and they can deal more damage as well. Focus on getting their Stagger bars up with magic and unique abilities, then have Tifa wail on them once they’re Staggered properly. Once you’ve dispatched of them, head back to claim your reward.

To recap, here’s how to get the Doomrats to spawn during the Rat Problem side quest in Final Fantasy 7 Remake:

  1. Kill the Wererats at the marked location.

  2. Go back and talk to the item shop owner.

  3. Head back to the marked location, and the Doomrats will now be there in their place.
