FFVII - Walkthrough - 1.1 Mako Power Plant

Items in This Area
Potion x3, Phoenix Down, Restore materia, Assault Gun.

At the start of the game, you'll have 3 Potions, a Phoenix Down, and an Ether. You can't equip Materia until after you reach the 7th Heaven bar, by the way.

Once you leave the train, check the body of the closest guard twice to get two Potions. Then head north. You'll be attacked by some guards. Take them out with your sword (you may win a Potion for killing them) and then move left to go outside. Now, talk to your teammates (Biggs, Wedge, and Jessie), then name yourself and Barret. Make your way to the northwestern door, and head up in the next room to enter the heart of the power plant.

Talk to Barret, (who joins you) and then talk to each Avalanche member to open the doors. After opening the second door, head right to enter another chamber with a treasure chest (Phoenix Down). Then, go back and enter the elevator (you'll have to talk to Jessie first). Press the arrow switch to activate it.

Work your way down the stairs and go through the door to the left. Then follow Jessie down the ladder. When she stops, search the area in front of her for a Potion (it's hard to see because of the steam). Climb down, cross the pipes, descend the nearby ladder, and take note of the Save Point before heading down the walkway.

Pick up the Restore materia on the ground in the next area and set the bomb. An alarm will sound and you'll have to fight the boss, a huge scorpion-like machine.

Cloud's Bolt magic works well, while Barret should be attacking. The Search Scope won't damage you, it just warns as to who the boss will attack next. When you've done enough damage, the boss will start to shake and Cloud will warn Barret. From this point onward, don't attack the boss and heal yourself or simply guard until the boss attacks you. If you try to hurt it during this time, the boss responds with a damaging laser ray shot from his tail. A few more hits after it stops shaking and the boss dies. You'll get an Assault Gun when you kill it.

You now have ten minutes to escape from the power plant. You'll need to make your way back to the upside-down T-shaped entrance hall where one of the Avalanche members is waiting. (If you've played the demo disc, know that you don't need to 'search' for the other members; just talk to Jessie to free her and then get out. Since Barret gets a new gun after the battle, be sure to equip it. Also, talk to the other members to open the two doors on your way back.
