How to beat Omega Weapon
Omega Weapon is definitely the toughest Boss in
FF VIII, you will need skills, luck, and perhaps
some inteligence to defeat him. If you lack the
attributes mentioned above, fear not, read on.
There is a rumor that one will need 'Hero Drinks'
(Invinsibility) to defeat Omega Weapon. Not true,
as I've kill Omega many time over without using
To fight Omega Weapon, you will need to find it
first. It is in the room where you find the pipe
organ in Altemesia Castle. But you will need to
'summon' it first. Here is what you do.
1. You will need both parties, the party that is
going to face Omega (here forth Omega), and the
party that is going to summon Omega (here forth
2. Get Omega to the garden where the fountain is,
at the green light, switch to Alpha.
3. If Alpha is at the main entrance, head upstairs,
turn right, and go through the door. Take notice
of the bell hanging from the ceiling. Head downstairs
to the bottom left hand corner, there you will find
a rope. Give it a pull and the bell will sound.
Move quickly to the green light and switch to Omega.
The timer would be activated.
4. Go through the door up north, Omega will be waiting
in the room.
Before You Face Omega
As Omega is very fast, i suggest that you configure
the Active Time Bar (ATB) to wait, and battle speed
to the slowest.
I'd advise that you let Squall, Irvine, and Zell
fight this beast. Coz they have awesome Desperation
Moves a.k.a. Limit Breaks. Let one of them equip
Leviathan's Recovery and let the other two characters
equip Item, Magic, and G.F. Let me warn you that
Omega will cast Death, so junction Death to Status
Defend. Do not juction Holy to Element Attack.
Here are the the moves that Omega is gonna make.
3. HP to 1 on all characters (9998 damage to all)
4. Demi (HP reduced to 1/4)
5. Mega Death (you will know when you see it)
7. 9999 damage to a single character.
Speed is everything in this battle. So junction
Haste to Speed, equip Cerebrus' Haste as well. Make
sure that all the characters have 9999 HP coz Omega
has got a nasty 9998 damage to all attack.
Omega is definitely gonna cast Death for his first
move. So you have nothing to worry about. Summon
Cerebrus, so that you can cast spells yourselves
3x consecutively. It is advisable that the character
that is equipped with Cerebrus has a high 'affection
rating' with it. ('affection rating' rates the speed
of a Guardian Force when it is summoned by a particular
Cast Aura so that you could do the Desperation Moves
without having your HP to critical. If you still
can't get it, press Triangle multiple times until
you do. Don't bother summoning Guardian Forces to
inflict damage as Omega won't feel a thing. The
only Guardian Force worth summoning is Eden which
damage incurred exceeds 4 digits, i.e. more than
9999. At Level 50, Eden does 30,000 t0 40,000 damage!
Then Omega will cast Meteor, fully heal your characters
coz he will inflict a 9998 damage to all soon after.
After your characters HP has been reduced to 1,
use the Desperation Moves for your advantage. Desperation
Moves performed are better when HP is critical.
(E.g. Irwin can shoot up to 8 times when his HP
is critical but only 3 to 4 time when HP is full
using Aura.) Do not bother to heal your characters
as the next attack followed is Demi (HP reduced
to 1/4) your HP is already 1, it will stay that
way. Then, fully heal yourself and summon GFs with
high HPs, or you can use 'Hero Drink' (invincibility)
in your inventory if u have it. Omega is gonna cast
Mega Death that is devastating. If you have summoned
Gfs, they will probably die, when they do, your
character continues to sustain damage from the attack!
Do not bother to heal, as the next attack would
be again Demi. Use the Deperation Moves to your
advantage. Next, Omega will unleash a 9999 damage
on a single character.
After that, Omega would unleash (what I believe)
random spell attacks, but never the same spell consecutively,
so good luck!
