Good day, fellow achievement hunters!

So, willing to get all the achievements but you’re kinda new to this game, eh?
Or maybe you’re an oldstager just having some questions about specific achievement?

Honestly, I don’t care. This guide is for both of you, as well as any other player.
Here, I’ll give a try to explain how to get all the achievements in this game in a player-friendly way. Expect many pictures and screenshots as well as text explainations. You can also be sure this guide has completely no spoilers, so don’t be afraid to read it.

But let’s finally get into it!
When I heared that new release of Final Fantasy 7 is going to have achievements, I was afraid of meeting Civilization V-like achievements, like “Build 1000 mines”. Hopefully, FF7 has the best achievements of its kind – Not easy, not impossible, but still VERY challenging (most of the times).
I don’t know how does “challenging” sound to you, but prepare to spend lots of hours in front of your computer. Not kidding here. Maybe it isn’t as bad as constantly building mines, but it will take time.
Another quite important thing to know. You can get all the achievements in one, constant game. I mean here that you can get ’em all right from starting the game to its end without starting a new game. Helps a lot, doesn’t it?

Limit Break Achievements

You do know what are Limit Breaks and how do they work, don’t you? If the answer’s “Yes” then you’re half the way to get these 7 achievements. Simply use your party members’ first limits and you’re done here.

More information on the limit breaks can be found here 


You already know what does it take to have a Limit Break, but do you know how to get a Final Limit Break for any character? If the answer’s “Yes”, skip the paragraph below. Otherwise read carefully:

Every character (Except Cait Sith) has 4 levels of Limit Breaks, and every level has 2 Limits. Except the 4th level, wich is “reserved” for that Final Limit thing. But how to gain more Limits having just the 1st one? It may look complicated, but is in fact pretty simple: To gain the second limit from a specific level you must use the first limit from that level certain amount of times, and to gain a higher-leveled limit break, you must kill 80 enemies using a specific character. Here’s the full table:

1 First limit Use the first Level 1 limit 8 times
2 Slay 80 enemies Use the first Level 2 limit 7 times
3 Slay 80 enemies after getting the first Level 2 limit Use the first Level 3 limit 6 times

Things get complicated when you want to get the Final Limit. To do this, you must know all the previous limits and have a special item allowing you to learn that Limit. I call these items “Manuals” though their name in-game is same as the Limit’s name.

And here the guide’s ending. It’s been the first guide I’ve ever written, to be honest. Has it answered any of your questions related to FF7 achievements? Have you found it helpful? Or maybe you’ve found it unnecessary and worthless? I’d like to hear some constructive feedback from you. That’d make me write some more guides, not only for FF7. Rate, comment, share, etc.

I’d also like to thank Kostas S. for morally supporting me, even if he wasn’t actually doing it…

Enjoy your 100%-done game, achievement hunters!
