You can use the rubbles found on the field to take cover from the The Valkyrie's attacks. Use these to avoid its barrage, and counter attack.
Use Barret To Stagger The Valkyrie Down On Ground
The Valkyrie will mostly be in air, and will be out of melee attacks' range. Use Barret's guns to stagger to bring the machine down, and pummel down with Tifa and Cloud.
2nd Phase: Beware Of Sleeping Gas Attacks
From the 2nd phase of the battle, The Valkyrie will use a gas attack that puts your characters to sleep. Be sure to rack up accessories like Headband to keep yourself awake.Check Out All Accessories List
Beware Of The Powerful AoE Melee Attack
The Valkyrie uses a move called Drill Drive, which slams itself on the floor and swipes near vicinity with its arms. This can be exploited as an opening to engage after this attack, as it stays on ground a while before taking off.
Phase 3: Powerful Laser Attack
In the 3rd Phase, The Valkyrie will use an extremely deadly AoE laser attack. Although dangerous, this move is telegraphed far before its occurrence. Be sure to move away as this is an unblockable move.
