Final Fantasy 16: Atlas, Breaker Of Worlds [Detailed Guide]
Equipping your character with the best equipment is undoubtedly everyone’s wish. However, getting the best equipment to decorate Clive is difficult. Fortunately, I am glad to report to the fans that the Hunt board is back again, and players can use it to slay various dangerous creatures to get exciting rewards. Atlas, the Breaker of Worlds, is one such creature in Final Fantasy 16 that players can hunt down to receive various rewards.
Saber Dance and Golden Section are two of his deadly special attacks.
Atlas uses his swiftness and sword skills to launch powerful energy blows. Players can dodge them or use Titanic Block to avoid getting hit.
Celestial Sphere is another of his special attacks in which Atlas creates many light circles on the ground and bombards them with deadly rays.

How To Find Atlas
Before confronting Atlas, you must ensure that you have progressed through the storyline to the Out of the Shadow main story quest after reaching level 45 in the game.
In Cid’s hideaway, you will get a vague flyer on Nektar, the Moogle’s Hunt Board, hinting you towards the Rosarian ruins.
After getting the flyer, the next task would be to find the exact village gate, as the area has many. A wise choice would be to start with the region’s biggest and most famous gate, i.e., Martha’s Rest.
Once you have reached Martha’s Rest, find the abandoned town of Cressida. For that, you must continue your journey toward the north of the village until they reach the Greenheaves. Crossing the bridge and riding further east will take players to Cressida.
One of the ways I reached the destination quickly during the playthrough was to avoid fighting the enemies along the way. Moreover, players will discover Atlas, Breaker of Worlds, in a ruined arena at the end of Cressida town in Final Fantasy 16. Entering the arena will trigger a cutscene and start the fight officially.

While it is better to maintain a safe distance from Atlas to stop getting hit by his attacks, this does not always work. Using Golden Section, a special attack, Atlas will surge forward at a shockingly fast speed to perform a sweeping, swinging attack with his energy sword.
Unlucky for the players, there is little chance that Titanic Block will help against this attack as, in this attack, Atlas’s sword will grow in size, covering more area. From my personal experience, the only way to prevent getting any damage would be to dodge the attack timely.
If you fail to maintain a reasonable distance, Atlas can deal significant damage with Saber Dance. It is a special attack that lets Breaker of Worlds perform a swinging attack with his energy sword in an arc in Final Fantasy 16. Titanic Block should be your go-to defense mechanism against this attack. Otherwise, dodging also works.
Celestial Sphere is the most dramatic attack from the beast. It creates many small circles on the ground. After some delay, lots of energy beams will befall these circles. Players who get caught in any of these circles can suffer significant damage.
Fortunately, I noticed that it takes some time before energy beams fall on these circles, so players can quickly move around to defend themselves.
However, as it is a delayed special attack, Atlas will launch it while also dealing significant blows with the other special attacks mentioned above.
The best opportunities to attack Atlas arise when he tries to deal melee damage to the players. I found most of his melee attacks to be significantly slower and create lags. Players can easily avoid them to unleash their best abilities in Final Fantasy 16 and deal decisive blows.
Tip: Lionheart and Stoneskin tonics can help you recover your health during the fight. Take as many potions with you as possible.
My Experience With Atlas Fight
Final Fantasy 16 put me against some of the most formidable foes in the franchise. I am hoping that with all the tips above, players will be able to defeat Atlas, Breaker of Worlds, with ease. It may take some time for newbies, and they may as well have to replay this mission many times.
However, consistency is the key to success! I urge you to keep trying until you finally stand tall over the beast’s body. If you still need any help, feel free to comment below.
A gamer through and through, I’ve spent countless hours honing my skills in competitive FPS games like Counter-Strike and Valorant. When I’m not immersed in the high-stakes world of multiplayer shooters, I find solace in the mesmerizing narratives of games like The Last of Us and the Batman Arkham series.
But here’s an interesting twist – I’m not just a gaming enthusiast; I’m also an avid movie buff. Feel free to join me on Steam: Z3US
