While most fans were confused when Persona 5 Strikers was first announced, most agree that it's a proper sequel to the beloved Persona 5 and is a great game in its own right. Strikers does so much to make you think of the beloved JRPG, keeping those stunning visuals, having some amazing remixes of the original game’s already amazing soundtrack, and giving players one hell of a boss fight if they choose to seek it out; The Reaper.
Persona 5 Strikers: How to Beat The Reaper
Yup, The Reaper returns to Persona 5 Strikers but you won’t have to worry about hearing chains while exploring Mementos. It’s also not going to be a repetitive slog to fight this big baddie, as The Reaper is a post-game boss in Strikers and is the hardest boss in the game, to the surprise of absolutely no one.
First off, to unlock the fight with The Reaper, you have to complete all of the Powerful Shadow Requests. A number of these are revealed during the main story, while others are only in the post-game so if you finish all your Requests before facing the game’s final boss and don’t see The Reaper there, relax, he’s in the post-game.
Once you have access to fight The Reaper in Persona 5 Strikers, make sure you have a party that has the best Physical and Gun attacks. This will likely lead to a male-focused party that will consist of Joker, Skull, Fox, and Wolf. Skull’s lightning can paralyze the boss, Fox can freeze it the boss, which can lead to critical attacks, and Wolf has strong buffs/debuffs that can make the fight a lot easier.
Sadly, there’s no easy way to beat The Reaper like in Persona 5 where you can plan an encounter during a day where Mementos makes The Shadows weaker. Still, make sure your party has some of their best equipment, skills, and more so that you can beat the toughest boss in Persona 5 Strikers.
Persona 5 Strikers is now available on PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam.
