Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII PS3 Cheats

General Tips
  • Guarding at the right time can prevent significant damage, so don't just hold it down.
  • Remember to change Schema in the middle of battle, as each one has its own ATB bar.
  • The game allows three schemata at once, so consider a jack-of-all-trades approach: use a physical, magic, and some kind of in-between schema together.
  • Refill Chronostasis with EP, which is accumulated by killing enemies over time.
  • Tackle sidequests to become stronger, but don't feel like you need to tackle every single one. The game can be completed without doing all of them.
  • Monsters can drop skills, so it creates an incentive to fight them even though they don't give experience.
  • If you're low on money, look for medals around towns (they shine on the ground) and sell them to shops.
  • Some enemies can only be defeated with stagger, so focus on their weakness and repeatedly attack that weakness to stagger them.
