Final Fantasy 16: How to Defeat Gigas

The first boss in Final Fantasy 16 is called Gigas, and it may be found during the main mission “Lost in a Fog.” We will go into great length on how to cope with this boss fight in this article, offering you helpful advice on the approach to take, the kinds of attacks and skills he can use against you, where to find him, and the rewards you will receive if you succeed in taking him down.


Location, rewards, and abilities

In the main mission “Lost in a Fog,” which takes place in the Stillwind region of the Grand Duchy of Rosaria, players will face the powerful boss Gigas, as we previously announced. Clive will have to put his abilities to the test in this difficult battle, and if he succeeds, all gamers will reap the benefits.

The following prizes are offered to players in appreciation of their effort and commitment: a Bone Necklace, a pair of Hard Leather Armlets, 45 Ability Points (AP) to improve their character's skills, and 54 Experience Points (XP) to assist them to advance in their quest. As trophies honoring the players' victorious overthrow of Gigas, these prizes serve as symbols of triumph.

However, it's vital to keep in mind that Gigas shouldn't be taken lightly. This powerful boss, like Clive, has unique skills that have a significant impact on the battle's result. One such skill is referred to as the Big Swing, a deadly maneuver that calls for rigorous planning and preparation to defeat. We will go into great detail regarding Gigas' Big Swing ability in the parts that follow, ensuring that you have all the information you need to take on this formidable foe.

How to beat Gigas

Gigas generally relies on swinging its club during the majority of the battle, hence its repertoire of actions and abilities might be classified as straightforward and uncomplicated. Gigas's normal attacks are rather slow, thus you have a chance to benefit from Precision Dodge. By pressing the dodge button (R1) precisely at the moment an oncoming attack hits you, you can use this technique to dodge correctly. You can counterattack with a Precision Attack if you successfully execute a Precision Dodge. You can respond by launching a string of precisely timed blows by hitting the attack button (Square).

Gigas will swing its club in multiple directions during this battle, offering a threat from a variety of angles, thus recognizing the best direction to evade is essential. You can successfully avoid Gigas's club's blows by paying attention to its swinging trajectory, which will also help you set yourself up for a successful counterattack.

Gigas will raise its club in an upward motion, giving you the chance to dodge toward the left or right side before it strikes downward. It is crucial to keep in mind that in this scenario, avoiding by scurrying backward can be relatively difficult due to the potential of being struck by the club tip held by Gigas. On the other hand, if you see Gigas carrying its club over its right shoulder, you should quickly run away since it will swing sideways. Dashing to the left or right to avoid this particular strike won't work.

Gigas' special ability

Gigas, as we've already seen, has a special move known as the Big Swing, in which it furiously swings its club in a circle, repeating the motion seven times while approaching you. It is imperative to steer out of conflict with Gigas while performing this move. When you are struck by the Big Swing, Gigas will continue to swing relentlessly, trapping you and making you vulnerable to damage until the ability expires.

Instead, it is advised to keep your distance and merely run around, dodging Gigas as you patiently wait for the Big Swing to stop. An important window of opportunity opens up once Gigas has finished spinning. You can take advantage of this brief reprieve to launch a series of potent assaults that will effectively weaken Gigas's willpower and cause it to become staggered. Victory can be more easily attained by taking advantage of this opportunity.
