The best ways to farm Gil in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth

Some say it’s the Lifestream that makes the world go round in Final Fantasy 7: Rebirth, but we all know the real answer is Gil. Cloud may be on a quest to save the world from Sephiroth, but he’s still a merc who wants to get paid for his efforts. Plus, there are a ton of expensive items to gather up on your journey, such as Materia, Accessories, Armor, and Queen’s Blood cards. You’ll need some very deep pockets if you want to buy everything that catches your eye, but Gil isn’t the easiest thing to come by. We’ve done all the odd jobs and activities around Gaia to give you the best ways to grind for Gil in Final Fantasy 7: Rebirth.

Best ways to farm Gil

Final Fantasy 7: Rebirth introduces a ton of new activities, minigames, and quests that didn’t exist in Remake. That means there are a lot more ways to earn Gil than ever before, but also a lot that are a waste of time compared to others.

Get your steps in

Even when you get yourself a Chocobo to ride around on, there’s no getting around how much running you will be doing. Whether it’s in one of the dungeons or towns where you can’t take your mount, part of a quest that keeps you on foot, or if you just like exploring the old-fashioned way, Cloud will be getting more than his fair share of steps in. So why not get paid for your efforts? The Pedometer Pin is an accessory that automatically pays you 1 Gil for every 100 steps taken. Now, that doesn’t sound like a lot, but that number will build up fast when running around. Plus, it’s free money you’d otherwise be leaving on the table. The best part is you don’t need to sacrifice a valuable accessory slot on Cloud, or even anyone in your active party, to get the benefits. So long as the person who has it equipped is available to be in your party, not necessarily currently in it, you reap the rewards.

Sword for hire

Sidequests pay well in Rebirth for the most part. There aren’t a ton of them compared to most open world games, so they all tend to be worth your while in one way or another. Visit every new town’s notice board and snag all the requests whenever possible. You won’t know exactly what reward you’re going to get until it’s said and done, but you should expect at least a couple thousand Gil for your efforts in most cases.

Get crafty

Item transmutation is this game’s version of item crafting. All those random materials you will scoop up wandering around, and get as drops from monsters, can be used to make some decent items, armor, and accessories. But, some of these are also quite valuable if you sell them off at a shop or vending machine. One of the best value items you can craft and sell is the Mist Mega-Potion for a cool 1,050 Gil per bottle. You won’t be able to transmute these for a while, but you should have a nice stack of materials to make a decent amount by selling them off. Plus, after you make the first one, they become cheaper to make so you can just go out and ride around farming some materials to make infinite cash.

The best ways to farm money in Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth
Kiryu and Kasuga grasp hands in Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth.

The game may be called Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth, but Ichiban will have an empty wallet more often than not during his adventure. Being an ex-yakuza, work isn't exactly easy for him to come by, and things only get more complicated after he travels overseas to Hawaii. This new location isn't cheap, especially if you want to pick up some top-tier gear and weapons or just enjoy the more luxurious restaurants. All your Yen will be converted to dollars when you transition, making it easier to see just how poor you are at all times. Street brawls will get you a few bucks, but you'll need more efficient ways to earn some scratch by the mid to late game. Here are the best ways to farm money in Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth.
Best ways to farm money
Different methods for earning dough will open up as you get through the story. Early on, you will have to resort to picking fights, searching under vending machines and cars for loose change, and selling plates to get by, but don't waste too much time grinding these out. You'll open up way more lucrative income streams later on.
Crazy Delivery

If you played the first Like a Dragon, you probably remember the can collecting mini-game. The new version for Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth doesn't have Ichiban racing to pick up cans to turn in for cash, but grabbing and delivering food for tips. This is a decent way to score some cash in the early game, especially if you maximize your score with tricks, bonuses, and speed, but it isn't as lucrative as you might think when first doing it. Even though you see a huge cash total getting racked up as you play, that's not actually how much you stand to earn. Instead, your total earnings are converted into points you can redeem for items or straight-up cash at $10 per 2,000 points.
Substories and stores
Substories are not only entertaining but quick and often reward you with a decent chunk of cash in addition to some unique gear. This isn't grindable, exactly, as you will eventually run out of substories, but it's good for a quick cash injection when you need it. Also, that gear you get from them or from shops should be sold as you get new and better stuff to replace the old ones. You can automatically equip the better gear, but you have to make it a point to specifically sell old gear at pawn shops. When there, you have to pick the "Sell gear" option since gear doesn't show up when selling your normal items and junk.

The best weapons in The Finals
A man in a skull mask with glowing eyes.

A shooter is only as good as its weapon selection. Without an armory stocked with fun, satisfying, and powerful guns to pick from, even a game as dynamic and unique as The Finals would grow stale. Thankfully, that isn't the case as the game launched with an impressive list of weapons to unlock and experiment with alongside its gadgets. The tricky thing about picking a "best" weapon in this game is that they are divided up between the three classes: light, medium, and heavy. That means you may have to learn to use a new weapon or adapt to a new class if you really want to play the meta. Of course, we expect balance changes and new weapons to shake this list up, but for now, these are the best weapons in The Finals.
Th best weapons in The Finals
As of the time of writing, there are 21 total weapons in The Finals. We've narrowed down our list to the top five to give players in each class an idea of which ones are dominating the competition.
V9s

This pistol is currently the king of light builds. Pistols usually have a reputation for being weak, but the V9S is by no means underpowered. It is a semiautomatic pistol, so you can shoot fast as long as you feel confident in your aim, and it's deadly accurate at medium and long ranges. Being so light, it will keep you mobile and out of danger for hit-and-run assaults.
