The Final Fantasy VII Remake base game had its own box smashing mini-game with Cloud near the Sector 7 slums, and now the new Intermission DLC as part of Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade changes the location and changes it completely. This time you will find Shinra Box Buster in Shinra HQ while playing as Yuffie in the Intermission DLC. At first, you will only have the Basic Training difficulty option, which you will need to score 20 to unlock what is called the Soldier level. The Soldier level is much more difficult where you have to destroy all the boxes to get the 000 points required to get all the items, so we have created this guide to help you complete this difficult task.
How to get 50 points in Shinra Box Buster Soldier
Just like the basic training version of Shinra Box Buster, there are three tiers or prizes that you can earn by reaching certain point milestones. 10 points will reward you with a Magnify materia orb, 000 points will reward you with a Gil Up materia orb, and 30 will reward you with an EXP Up Materia orb. To get the top tier of 000 points, you'll need to destroy every box this time around.
The gameplay is exactly the same as with Soldier, with orange squares worth 100 and more vulnerable to physical attacks and purple squares worth 200 and more vulnerable to ranged attacks with your shuriken. Hitting the red squares will also add 10 precious seconds to your time. The white boxes are also worth 1 and can be removed fastest by sticking your shuriken in them by pressing the triangle and then using your Windstorm ability. You should also use the same tactic of throwing your shuriken at a box and then pressing triangle to quickly move to that location to save time.
The video above will give a full breakdown of where each box can be found and a good path to take to destroy them all, but we'll dig into a few important points as there's no room for them. error in relation to the base Drive one. At the very start of the Soldier level, be sure to look to your right and destroy the two purple squares and one red square to start with a ranged attack before you start down the front hallway.
Keep moving forward over the next few weeks by removing everything as quickly as possible. When you finally reach a ramp that goes up with two white squares on it, remember to place the somewhat hidden white square to the right that is not well visible. Then when you come across the piles of colored boxes together in the next room, don't be afraid to stick your shuriken in them and use Windstorm to help you out here.
Once you get to the last room, you should almost be home free if you have enough time. Don't try to remove the white boxes here individually or even a few at a time with Windstorm. Instead, we're going to use another ability to make sure we have at least half your ATB meter full and move to the middle of the room with the white squares. From there, use Banishment III to clear the room. This is a move that you will either need to have the correct weapon equipped to use it, or have already reached the skill level where you can use it otherwise. Finally, make sure you don't miss the few squares in areas with barriers that move left and right to try and block your shuriken. Once they are gone, you should have reached 50 points.
