Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier offers an interesting combination of shooting-style skills and hero shooters. When it comes to ranged weapons, The First Soldier includes the standard mix of firearms you would expect from a battle king. While the game’s arsenal isn’t very imaginative, the weapons are complemented by Magic Materia and other abilities that make some of them more effective at playing specific classes.
The best weapons in Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier
Because of the way each class works in Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier, the best weapons are the ones that work best for each class’s preferred game style and reach, while causing great damage.
Thanks to its Manawall ability, the Monks are uniquely suited for long-distance combat. Manawall reduces the damage of incoming shots, but does not prevent players from moving. The best weapon for Monk players in Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier is Mark 5 sniper rifle. This semi-automatic DMR hits hard in medium and long range and will not disappoint you if someone is in a hurry.
Warriors are at the opposite end of the spectrum: with their Rush abilities and passive melee properties, they excel at SMGs and shotguns. The best weapons of Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier for Warriors are Disent’s Bane SMGand Shotgun model S-7. Both weapons hit really hard at short distances and do not require much aiming for work.
Because of their ability to judge, Rangers perform best in medium range and like to move frequently to gain a better angle for their opponents. The best weapons for the Rangers in Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier are Mk3 Combat Rifle Mod 2and Hell LMG. Both weapons prefer a close to medium range mobile play style.
Wizards can play for free, however they want, because their set is mainly focused on Magic Materia. This means that most of the Magic Materia’s offensive abilities require you to get a short distance, so a flexible short- and medium-range weapon is recommended. This choice largely depends on your own style of play, but our personal selection of the best Sorcerer weapon in Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier is MP-60 type A. Unlike Disent’s Bane, this SMG is very accurate, even when used on the road.
Other weapons worth using in Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier are the Executioner Gamma sniper rifle and the A2 Wrath revolver. Both weapons bring a serious blow and at the same time are very effective ammunition. If your primary weapon specializes in medium or short range, consider taking an Executioner or A2 Wrath as a backup. It allows you to threaten opponents from a distance or push them up close with high damage.
