How to Unlock Different Limit Breaks in Final Fantasy 7 Remake

As we all know about the limit breaks in Final Fantasy 7, they have returned in Final Fantasy 7 Remake. In this guide, we will be discussing How to Unlock Different Limit Breaks in Final Fantasy 7 Remake for each character.

We will also take a look at how each limit break works in FF7 Remake.

How to Unlock Different Limit Breaks in Final Fantasy 7 Remake

Limit breaks have two levels in Final Fantasy VII Remake for every character. The first limit break is already unlocked as soon as you start playing but the second limit break is up to you to unlock as a side option.

These limit breaks are actually abilities and can enable the character to either do more damage, become faster, more stagger, better defense or armor or faster healing.

The third limit break is only accessible with a materia called Refocus. It is very peculiar just as summons and enemy skills are.

One more thing to note is that you will have to equip your second limit break after you have unlocked it.

For that, go to Battle Settings in the main menu and you can select whichever limit beak you prefer. There will an option to choose Refocus or other Limit Breaks if the required materia is equipped.
