Final Fantasy 7 Remake Shears’ Counterattack

As mentioned before, there are certain choices you need to make prior to chapter 9 to make sure this quest pops up for you. We are listing those decisions below:

  • When talking about Tifa with Sam, choose “She’s great at handling books”
  • Don’t talk to the hotel receptionist in Wall Market
  • Ignore the Johnny Incident in Wall Market
  • Complete Burning Thighs and Price of Thievery side quests

The Shears’ Counterattack quest in FF7 Remake is pretty simple. All you have to do is to head to the Colosseum. Go ahead straight and take the elevator to the first floor.

Go straight from here and talk to the Gatekeeper standing by the gate. He will show you three options – Special Match, Free Battle or Cancel. Select the special match and you will pop in for a fight against Cutty – a good dual round-bladed machine.

It’s an enhanced model of the Cutter enemy type, so all you have to do is to focus on the physical damage you deal to cut off its arms. Stay aware of its move of using its cutters as wheel for a fast attack.

Deal enough damage and soon you will be victorious. Head out of the hall then and talk to Madam M. She will give you the reward then and tell you about Aerith too.

So this is pretty much everything about this simple FF7 Remake side quest. If you have any questions still, please let us know.
