My Battle Tips Against Steel Gigas

Steel Gigas is hard to fight, especially on the lower floors of Arqa when you encounter the Strong Shadows. The latter ones are not threatening at all. To deal with it as fast as possible, follow the steps below:

  1. Sanada: I recommend keeping Sanada on your team to fight against it, as he has lightning attacks. Use him to stun him and use All-Out Attacks constantly.
  2. Makoto’s Persona: Keep a persona with lightning moves on Makoto because Sanada deals Strike damage as his basic attack. You can stun and use All-Out Attack twice in this way.
  3. Iori and Yukari: I recommend using Iori and Yukari as support. You can use their support skills to buff Makoto and Sanada or debuff the Steel Gigas. 

 And that’s all from my side on Steel Gigas in Persona 3 Reload. I would recommend upgrading your social links like Magician Social Link or Strength Social Link. The higher the rank, the more bonuses your personas will get.
