Template:FFXIII Enemies Dreadnought is a boss in Final Fantasy XIII. It is fought in the Vile Peaks by Lightning, Sazh, and Vanille.

Fighting the Dreadnought

The Dreadnought is fought twice in quick succession, and whatever last paradigm was used in the first battle will be selected for the second fight. The same strategy works both times, with the only difference being that the Dreadnought will have more health, use Wrecking Ball - a very devastating attack - and use fire based melee attacks in the second battle, meaning at least 2 staggers will likely be needed.

When fighting the Dreadnought, a good strategy is to have Vanille debuff the Dreadnought, while Sazh buffs the team (use Bravery / Faith, depending on the character) and Lightning goes in with Commando. Once the team is fully buffed and the enemy fully debuffed, switch to RAV/RAV/RAV and keep pressing the attack until the Dreadnought is staggered. Once done, switch to RAV/COM/RAV to defeat the enemy.

In the second battle, the same strategy will still work. However, due to the devastating power of Wrecking Ball, a Medic will be needed. Also, the Dreadnought will also be able to include fire in its attacks, increasing the damage it deals.

Upon defeat of the Dreadnought, the Crystarium will be expanded to stage three. Sazh and Lightning will be able to use the Commando and Medic roles, respectively, and the player will now be able to upgrade weapons and accessories, making them more powerful and useful than before.
