Final Fantasy 7 Remake Chadley’s Intel Reports
Chadley’s Battle Intel Reports in FF7 Remake are important part of character progression in this game as it provides a number of powerful materials other than that you will not be able to get them naturally in the game.
This includes powerful summons namely Shiva, Fat Chocobo, Leviathan and Bahamut. All of them being greatly useful for their elemental affiliations against enemy weak points and also for their raw stopping power.
You will be meeting Chadley first in Chapter 3, with the young scientist showing up in the Sector 7 Slums, presented to you in the Chadley’s Report side quest which is the first side quest in the game.
This side quest is helpful as it actually directs you to complete the first Battle Intel Report by using the Assess Materia that the young person gave you and from there further missions will be unlocked with greater rewards.
Chadley’s mission unlocks are based on two criteria:
- Missions which you have already completed
- How far you have gone in the game
