Blast Wave Materia
For those uninitiated, Blast Wave is Command Materia that is applied to Zack’s sword that focuses on blasting or throwing the enemy out of the battleground. As for the animation, casting the Command Materia will allow Zack to lift in the sky and slam his Sword into the ground unleashing a blast. The cherry on top is that this Materia also includes a chance of knocking out the enemy, thus giving players a huge tactical advantage during combat.
Let’s look at some of the essential stats of the Blast Wave Materia that can help you identify the massive potential during the battle.
AP Cost: 12
As you can see, casting the Command Materia will only cost 12 AP, which seems like a pretty good tradeoff considering the massive effect it offers to your character. On top of that, players can achieve an Attribute Bonus on the Blast Wave for up to five Levels that will increment +1 on each consecutive level.
Now that you know how Blast Wave Materia works let’s discuss how to obtain it in Crisis Core Reunion.
To get the Blast Wave Materia in Crisis Core – Final Fantasy VII Reunion, you can consider the following strategies:
Complete the quest “Regain the Mako Facility M3-3-6” to unlock the Blast Wave Materia.
Explore and open chests in areas such as “Twins in the Caverns” M-7-5-5 and “The Irritated Recruiter” M-7-6-4 to find Blast Wave Materia.
Create your own Blast Wave Materia through the Materia Fusion System by combining a Mastered (Five Star) Graviga and an Assault Twister.
Choose the method that suits your gameplay style and progress in the game to obtain this valuable Materia.
How To Unlock Blast Wave
Among the different abilities you unlock throughout the campaign, Blast Wave stands at the top of all the abilities to offer the most unique and powerful Status Effect on Zack’s attacks. Moreover, players can consider various approaches to unlock Blast Wave. You can either consider unlocking it through campaign progression, looting different chests lying around in the dungeons, or crafting your own using the Materia Fusion system in the Crisis Core – Final Fantasy VII Reunion.
Regain The Mako Facility
Regain the Mako Facility is the M3-3-6 and the only mission available in Crisis Core FF7 Reunion that allows players to receive Blast Wave as a final reward. We will not go into much detail about the mission, but it is worth noting that it will involve intense clashes with Genesis’s Forces. So make sure you are coming prepared with the right equipment and abilities for Zack to clear the dungeon and unlock the mighty Blast Wave easily.
Another prominent approach involving receiving the Blast Wave Materia is through the chests spread across the dungeons in specific missions. The first mission where you can find a chest with Blast Wave is “Twins in the Caverns,” which is M-7-5-5. Meanwhile, “The Irritated Recruiter” M-7-6-4. All you need to do is to scrounge every corner of the dungeons in these missions to pick up the Blast Wave and move on to the following missions in the campaign.
Stealing From Martial Tank
Surprisingly, the game also enables players to loot the Blast Wave Materia from the specific boss known as “Martial Tank.”Players will be able to encounter the boss during the M1-4-4 Destroy The Mobile Artillery and M7-4-4 Fourth Contract.
Despite being a Normal enemy, Martial Tank features a massive HP pool of 108,770. Meanwhile, if you play the game in Hard Mode, you can expect this HP to increase to 142,420. You can equip Crisis Core Reunion best Materia to dish out the best damage to the enemy and defeat it quickly. Once defeated, Martial Tank will drop Blast Wave, which you can claim forever.
To create Blast Wave Materia, I had to master Materia Fusion. This technique combines specific Materia to form a unique one. But, it’s not always straightforward; sometimes you need rare or upgraded Materia to reach your character’s goal.
The same goes for our Materia Fusion which requires a Mastered (Five Star) Graviga and an Assault Twister. Fusing these both will yield the Blast Wave Materia.
In Crisis Core Final Fantasy VII Reunion, facing tough enemies and challenges is a given. Upgrading my character’s abilities with Blast Wave Materia was a game-changer. Knowing how to obtain and use this command Materia made my gameplay more powerful and enjoyable.
