the way at about I12. Snipe it. Head to the right and pick up the 3000 Gil. Go
jump down at G2.

Fifth map, get the Handgun Bullets and Potion that are near. Continue on to the
red circle of the map.

Sixth map, at I8, face north and crouch to shoot the 3rd Memory Capsule. At M5,
get the Rifle Bullets. Continue on to the next area.

The 7th map, much bigger than all the others so far. From where you start, turn
around for a Red Ether. Continue on. On the way, get 3000 Gil and Machinegun
Bullets. Further on, 1000 Gil and Mega Potion. Next, Makou Point, 3000 Gil, Red
Potion, Red Potion. Moving on, a Shop and Phoenix's Tail after breaking a box.
After that, Machinegun, Machinegun, Handgun and Handgun Bullets. Hit the switch
to open a door. Hit more switches and open more doors. Just beware the insects
from the back. A Makou next then enter the door. A quick boss fight here.

Boss: Black Widow TW
Run and keep shooting it. This should be a pretty easy battle here.

After, hit the switch to open the lift, get in and hit another switch. Head out
the lift after.

For the 8th map, well, there is no Map here. Check out each section for Rifle
Bullets, 3000 Gil, Machinegun Bullets and DG Extreme Secret Data. Now, go pass
the door that's at the back of the lift. A Makou Point on the way. Clear out
the enemies at the bridge, the 4th Memory Capsule is also around. From how you
enter to this bridge area, face the left and check the further bridges to the
left. You can just snipe around the bridges far away and you would spot it. It
is the bridge about NW from the door you just entered through. Now continue on
and go through the first crystal room. Second room, full with spheres, you can
also get another DG Extreme Secret Data here. Then move on. Eventually, Cloud
will get Tifa to send you the map of this area. Continue on, get the Handgun
Bullets, hit the switch at the platform to go down. Clear more bombs on the way

For the 9th map, continue on for a Shop and Machinegun Bullets. Within the big
area that's made of 4 rooms, you can get 3 more DG Extreme Secret Data. Moving
on to the upper left area of the map, get the Handgun Bullets, hit the switch
on the platform to go down.

As the platform going down, pay attention to the NW of the map. There's the 5th
Memory Capsule for you to shoot.

Last map, continue on and eventually, a Makou Point. Continue on, a room with
Handgun Bullets, Rifle Bullets, Machinegun Bullets and Ex Potion. Continue on
and eventually, boss time.

Boss: Blue Azul Equip 2
Running around and keep shooting.

Boss: True Azul
Alright, guns here don't work, so that leaves to close combat. Of course, have
Vincent to transform into Gallian Beast. There are lots of Makou Points here,
but you need to lure Azul to break those metal barrels first.

Another way to attack Azul is using Blizzard. Similar to shooting, use Blizzard
and keep running away.


# Of Memory Capsule: 15

First map, get to A7, face NW. The 1st Memory Capsule is by about A6. Moving on
to get the Handgun Bullets, then continue on down. More enemies to clear out
and these ones can fly around. After you clear 8 of them, more and an enemy got
the Card Key. With that, you can unlock the gate at B8 which leads to 1200 Gil

Fifth map, pass the gate and continue to M9.

For the 7th map, from where you start at B14, face south and look up. It's the
6th Memory Capsule. Slowly move on and you can roll in to the right at F13. It
leads to a Makou Point and a Shop. Continue on to the north of the map to get
on a cart. While moving, turn around and shoot down all the enemies that are
chasing you. Eventually, there will be even helicopters.

For the 8th map, there is the 7th Memory Capsule at about B9. Get to C9, face
west and look down. Under the Shinra logo and the track, there it is. Now, get
a move on toward K6. You will drop down then toward K12.

the top of the house, then snipe the 10th Memory Capsule. At I10, there is the
Rifle Bullets. At I7, there is a Makou Point and the Blow Machinegun. After,
you will be locked. Clear all the hounds to get the Card Key. The box at I8, it
is a Makou Point. Now, go up to I8, get another Card Key. By around I7, face
NE, look up to that house. The 11th Memory Capsule is left of the chimney. Now
get to E7, face north and you can easily spot the 12th Memory Capsule. Pass the
gate and move on. There is a Shop at D8. At E9, face south but don't drop down
yet. Look up and do you see the box? Near the left of the box, you can snipe
this explosive barrel to knock the box down. That's the Fairy L Barrel.

Moving on. At E11, face south and look pass the fence. You would spot the 13th
Memory Capsule. Get on the machinegun at C12, clear all the enemies to get the
Card Key. Then you can go pass the gate near the machinegun. Get the 2000 Gil,
Card Key and Phoenix's Tail. Head up to D5. Yes, there is a gate but you can go
around, so you don't need any Card Key. Get the 10004 Gil. Continue on, there

Next, there are 3 Makou Point. Clear the enemies to get the Card Key. Move pass
the gate.

Last map, there is a Shop near and Handgun Bullets. Go up for Rifle Bullets, as
we as  Machinegun Bullets. Continue to go up. There is another Shop, a Card Key
near and shoot the device on the floor for a Potion. The Shop is actually just
an enemy. Continue on up and go along the paths. Clear enemies, get Card Keys
and go pass gates. At H12, face the east and wait til the countdown gets to 0.
By 0, a Sabotendaa/Cactus will up. You can also shoot it, but you need to do it

Next, continue on for Rifle Bullets, a Shop and 5000 Gil. Clear lots of enemies
then get the Card Key. At I9, face NW, just by that opening under that bridge,
you can snipe the 15th Memory Capsule. If you go through the gate by J11, you
will get to another area where you need to finish off enemies to get another
Card Key for the other gate. That gate will lead you to a mission to kill 100
enemies. If you can pull that off, you get the Gold Moogle Doll. That's more or
less a reference item. Of course, you can also sell that for 35000 Gil.

Now, get a move on to I9. Get 3000 Gil and a Makou Point. Go down the stairs,
go take the right door for another Shop. Move on from the left door. Clear the
enemies and drop down. Head to K8, shoot the device at the ceiling for the Card
Key. At J8, there is a Makou Point. At H7, which is the ladder, there is one
more Card Key in mid air. After that, continue to go up another ladder, and a
Shop, as well as a box which is another Card Key. Check the back of the Shop,
there is another Card Key. Move to G6, move slowly and get the Card Key. Back
to J8, use the machinegun to shoot down a box at the top left cliff. Go destroy
that box for another Card Key. Back to J8, face SW and snipe at the cut of a
red pipe. You can see a red device which is another Card Key. You now have 7
Card Key. Now, go open up the gate at I9, that gets you 2 more Card Key which
you will have 8 now. Now, time for the 7 consecutive gates at I7. You get the
Lucky S Barrel, as well as 2 more Card Key. So, you have 3 right now. And there
are 3 more gates, so just enough.

After you get the items behind those 3 gates, move on toward E2. Time for the
boss fight.

Boss: Jet Black Darkness Nero
Easy enough. Keep moving and shoot. Eventually, he will multiplies to 3. Just
get behind some rock, then take them down one by one. Another way to damage him
here is the Blizzard. Keep the distance mid range, so you can run and avoid if
you need to.

on the way. Run through and clear bunch of bugs to get the Card Key. By B7, go

Point here, and by B10, within this near barrel, shoot through the barrel to
get this 5th Memory Capsule. Now, take the platform at the middle to go up. At
about D6, which is the upper left corner, it is the last/third G Report. If you
need some boost with your jump, just use Gallian Beast. Go back down and enter
through the door. By F10, which is just after the door, facing NW and look up.
You should spot the 6th Memory Capsule. Get the Machinegun, Rifle and Handgun
Bullets, as well as a Hi Potion. Hit the near switch to open up the gate. It's
time for a quick fight.

Boss: Dragon Flyer PT
Just keep shooting and it will go down. This is not much of a fight at all.

Now, the 8th map. Hit the switch, continue on and you will get to a Shop. Move
on after that. Time for another boss fight.

Boss: Nero Rough Rare
Run and shoot. The barrier will break after shots. Then you can attack that
Nero. Repeat til you beat him. Don't bother with others, just run, avoid and

Boss: Nero Wing Shooter
A bit annyoing here because he always warps around. But, he tends to appear on
one side a lot more than the other side. Just face one side, look at the screen
and if you see any darkness around, he will appear there. Equip the Snipe Scope
and snipe his head.

Afterward, there is 5000 Gil near and a Shop as well. Continue on for more boss

Boss: Pure White Emperor Vice(Houjou)
Don't bother, you can't win. Let him kill you.

Boss: Vice(Houjou) With The Power Of Omega Dwelled Within
Stay around a tube and work from there. If he's moving around, you can fire at
him then go behind a tube. When you've done enough damage, he will move to the
center and use lasers. Just run and jump to avoid them. If he uses a shockwave,
then jump as well. He can also send out slash slashes, then you can just keep
moving and shoot.


# Of Memory Capsule: 1+1

(For the 2nd Memory Capsule, you will need to watch the G Ending first. I will
talk about that below.)

Vincent will be in Chaos form with the Death Penalty gun. Continue on and try
not to use the Death Penalty Bullets. You can go through here with the Ultima
Weapon just fine. Just switch weapon with L2. For the 1st Memory Capsule, just
move on and drop down at K12. Head to J11, face NW or W. You would vaguely see
it at further of this spiral path. Continue on to the next area.

Second map, continue on to the second floor. At E8, get another Omega Report.
Go on up to the third floor. At F7, there is the final Omega Report. After, at
the top, clear all the enemies for more scenes.

As for the rest, just clear out enemies after enemies. Continue up to the top.
If you are running out of bullets, use others and save Death Penalty Bullets.
If you don't want to fight the enemies, just rush to the top.


# Of Memory Capsule: NONE

Nothing to it, the final 3 battles of the game.

Boss: Crystal Feeler
Just look out for the buds here. Anyone lights up, get near and close combat to
destroy it. Repeat til you get rid of all of them.

Boss: Omega Cocoon
Switch to Death Penalty and keep shooting it.

Boss: Omega Vice
Same here, use the Death Penalty. I have about 370 Bullets. Run and shoot here.
For his attacks, you can stay behind the moving walls here. The rest is just
keep shooting his front. He has lots of Life, so this takes quite sometimes. If
you need to heal, use items.

If Vice comes down, switch to Ultima Weapon and shoot him. Keep shooting him
and he will go back up to Omega. Then Omega Vice is likely to fly up high in
the air. This is time to heal. Omega Vice will use a fireball attack, which can
cause around 1000 damage.

Next, Omega Vice gets more active here. He will come to you and attack. Just go
the other side, attack and repeat. It's important that you also keep your HPs
high here. By the time I beat it, I have about 260 Bullets left for the Death
Penalty. Which means I roughly used up 110 Bullets to kill it, but that's not
counting the Handgun Bullets I used on Vice when he comes down.

Afterward, you have beaten the game.


If you have followed this walkthrough, or at least have obtained the three G
Report, then you will get this ending after 'The End'. And yes, G is Gackt. As
for Gackt's 3 lines:

~Nemuri ni tsuku no wa mada hayai~
(It's still early to fall asleep)

~Tomo ni shuuen wo kanadeyou~
(Let's play the demise together)

~Otouto yo~
(Younger BROTHER)

Load the Clear Data. Based on how many Memory Capsule you have collected, you
will be able to view events of the game. If you have followed my walkthrough
all these time, then you will definitely have 81 Memory Capsule so far. As you
can see from the Last Chapter in Event Viewer, you are still missing one.

<82th/Last Memory Capsule>
After seeing the G Ending, get back to the second part of Chapter 12, aka the
part that's titled as 'Vincent Chaos Descents'. Head to L15, face SE, and look
up to the 2 wings of Omega. Below the lower wing, snipe the last Memory Capsule
and that's it.

If you go back to the Event Viewer, the last one of Chapter 12 will be unlocked
and titled as G. Yup, that's the G Ending.
