Focus On Guarding Instead Of Dodging

The boss has many attacks that have a wide-range & small gaps in between attacks, making it difficult to dodge. It's best to use guard to lessen the damage you receive from each of its attacks.

Bring Elemental Materia

It will be extremely helpful if you link Elemental and Lightning Materia for this fight, as Scorpion Sentinel is weak to this element. You can choose to equip this in your weapon to gain an offensive advantage, or in your armor to gain immunity to lightning attacks (such as its powerful EM Field). We recommend the defensive option, just to be safe.

At Least 1 HP Up Per Person

HP Up

As a common tip for all Hard Mode encounters, bring at least one HP UP Materia on every character! In fact, two might be better. You can never have enough HP, so if you don't have HP Up Materia for everyone, make sure to buy it at Vending Machines! Even if it's low level, don't worry, you can level it up over the course of Hard Mode.

Hard Mode Tail Laser Is Much Faster

One main difference in hard mode and normal is that the Tail Laser in the latter phase of the fight will activate much, much faster! As soon as the first pile of debris is destroyed, immediately run to the next one or you'll die!

Manuscript Reward

For defeating the Scorpion Sentinel on hard mode, you'll get Sharpshooter’s Companion Vol. IV, which gives SP To Barret.
