If you want to unleash all the power of the FF7 Rebirth party, here’s a list of all Limit Breaks in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth and how to use them.

FF7 Rebirth Limit Breaks explained

Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth’s Limit Breaks are powerful attacks that deal big damage and don’t require ATB points to use. However, they must be charged separately from your other special moves, which can’t be done using items.

The only two ways to charge up a character’s Limit Gauge is to take hits or deal damage to staggered enemies. That being said, there are also Synergy moves that can speed up how quickly the meter fills up to let you use them more often.

How to increase Limit Break levels in FF7 Rebirth

Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth players can upgrade their Limit Break levels using certain Synergy abilities. Some of these special team-up skills will unlock level two and three Limit Breaks for the duration of the fight, giving you access to bigger and better attacks.

New Synergy abilities can be earned by leveling up character Folios, which is done by visiting Folio Vending Machines at Maghnata Books or a Rest Stop. Be sure to keep an on the effects for each one, as level two and three Limit Breaks can quickly turn the tide of a fight.

Another way is to equip certain accessories, which are unlocked in the last chapters and we won’t spoil them, but they can upgrade the Limit Break level of any character at the start of the fight.
