Battle[edit | edit source]
Normally, it will only attack by using Laser Barrage, but if it is damaged by an elemental spell, it will hit a random party member with the level 2 version of that spell (i.e. if hit by a Fire-elemental spell, it will counter with Fira). These counterattacks are particularly brutal and can easily one-shot a party member if they are not at a high enough level; even at level 40, the News Eye's counterattacks can severely cripple them. When confused, it will use Object 199 which deals 9999 damage to any one ally, instantly killing them.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
The part should use physical attacks or non-elemental spells, such as Bio, to defeat it.
