How to Defeat Dread Comet in FF16

Dread Comet is a level 38 A-rank Chocobo, so stack some potions and elixirs for the battle. Dread Comet cannot be staggered and a has few attacks, but each is powerful enough to reduce your health.

It will mostly charge at you or use its beak to damage you, so you must be ready to dodge it. Dread Comet has a couple of meteor attacks (Choco Meteor and Choco Meteorain), which must be avoided, or you will lose much of your health in FF16.

In addition to these fireballs from above, a shockwave will be produced when these meteors hit the ground. So, by dodging these meteors, you must get away from the area to avoid these shockwaves. You must not lose attention in the battle, or you will fall prey to these meteors.

The number and pattern of comets will change as Dread Comet loses a significant amount of its health in Final Fantasy 16. You must find openings and use your Eikonic abilities to hit it with combos to lower its HP to zero.

Tips to Defeat Dread Comet

  1. Dread Comet will attack you with its feet. Dodge the attacks and grab the opportunity to counterattack it.
  2. Using Eikonic Abilities catches Dread Comet in a loop and gives extra damage.
  3. Keep checking Dread Comet’s health. Once it drains below half, Dread Comet releases shockwaves, stays on guard, and jumps immediately.
  4. Keep attacking without resting and heal immediately after receiving damage.
