What Is Shinra Battle Combat Simulator?

Battle Challenges With Upped Difficulty

Battle Simulator

The Shinra Battle Combat Simulator is a facility in the Shinra building, accessible Chapter 16 & Chapter 17 only. It features challenges that are significantly more difficult than those of the Corneo Colosseum, but the rewards are also greater in part.

Aerith Only Available Chapter 17

Since you don't gain access to Aerith in Chapter 16, Chapter 17 is the only time you can use Aerith for this challenge! Because having a healer is so important for three-person battles, we strongly recommend you play on Chapter 17.

No Items Allowed, Partial Healing Between Rounds

All Battle Challenges consists of 5 round matches under a special rule. During these battles, item usage is prohibited but you will heal for 50% HP & 50% MP in-between rounds. Note you cannot adjust difficult of 5-star rank battles!

More Details On Difficulty Level & Setting

Ch. 17 Is The Fastest Way To Get To This Location

By starting Chapter 17 from the Chapter Selection, you only have to fight one group of enemies before you arrive at Chadley & the Battle Simulator, making this the fastest way to get to the Simulator!

Farm EXP, AP, and Get Manuscripts

Exp AP
Click to Enlarge

You can use the Shinra Battle Simulator as a means to farm EXP & AP for characters. As the challenges can be repeated indefinitely, you can take advantage of it by participating in fights to grow your team to the maximum level of 50!

Obtain Hard Mode Only Manuscripts

7 fights in the Shinra Battle Combat Simulator are only available on Hard difficulty. Four of these are solo matches & will provide characters with a Manuscript that increases their SP! This is really important for pushing your weapon level to 6, as that can only be done by doing Hard mode content!

Just right a plain guide, this page is stupid and confusing as hell

So does Ragnorok if I’m not mistaken? Which they’ve used in many other FF games for these ultimate boss fights.
