Synergy Abilities in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth deal incredible damage to enemies. Luckily, we have you covered on how to do them.

Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth sees Cloud and his friend embark on a journey to defy destiny and defeat Sephiroth. However, trouble awaits through the different regions outside of Midgar, and you’ll have to face a number of challenging foes. Synergy Abilities will help tip things in your favor during battle encounters, and we will tell you how to use them in the guide below.

How Do You Use Synergy Abilities in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth?

Synergy Abilities can be activated in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth by opening the commands menu with the X button, choosing the Synergy Ability tab, and selecting the ability you want to cast. Battles in the game can be hectic. Therefore, it is best to have the commands menu inputs ready if you wish to use a Synergy Ability faster.

Additionally, players must note that all participating party members must have enough Synergy to cast the abilities. Using character-centric skills (Focused Thrust for Cloud) with a rectangle beside them indicates they will help build Synergy and must be done for everyone. Furthermore, players can see which characters can cast which abilities while in the Synergy Ability tab.
