Should you get off the elevator or continue to the entrance in Crisis Core?

Choices, choices.

The building is under attack, and Lazard has instructed you to go to the Entrance to help fend off the enemy. However, on your way down, the elevator stops and Zack can investigate what caused it or continue to the Entrance. This can leave you wondering if you should get off the elevator or continue to the Entrance in Final Fantasy 7 Crisis Core.

What’s outside the elevator?

First off, you should definitely investigate. Malfunctioning machines on the SOLDIER floor cause a brief power outage. Zack will be able to help out and receive rewards for a good deed.

  • By saving the 3rd Class SOLDIER, you get an Ether
  • By saving the personnel in the Training Room, you get 5,000 Gil

After this event, Lazard will urgently call you to head down. You can now continue the story. There are a ton of machines down there too, so equip Lighting-affiliated Materia to cheese the battle.

Crisis Core is filled with a ton of optional stuff such as this. Whenever you’re given the option to help out, always take it. You’ll be rewarded! There is no bearing on the game’s ending or anything. For example, when given the opportunity to explore Sector 8, explore it thoroughly.
