The Reaver is an enemy that appears in Final Fantasy XIII-2.

Stats[edit | edit source]

Battle[edit | edit source]

When it receives enough damage, the Reaver stands on its hind legs and fully restores its HP. In its bipedal state, it can use the Fira spell to deal heavy damage.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The Tri-disaster paradigm (RAV/RAV/RAV) can rapidly increase the Reaver's chain gauge. Once it is staggered, Serah and Noel can switch to the Cerberus paradigm (COM/COM/COM) to deal as much damage to it as possible before the stagger ends. Casting Poison on the Reaver can make battling it easier.
