Starting Location: Angel of the Slums
Ask about the Angel of the Slums in the community center
Head inside the community center (the building next to Damon). The only person you need to talk to is Mireille, who will appear by the entrance dressed as an explorer. Talk to her and then walk over to Damon to end this step. If you don’t see her right away you can also talk to all the elderly people and they will point you to her. However, it’s not necessary to talk to anyone but Mireille.
Head to Lookout Point and investigate
Head to Lookout Point, which is located at the very north-east of the Sector 5 Slums.
Defeat the Chromogger
The Chromogger looks formidable, has high HP and AOE attacks. Make sure you go into this battle with Lightning materia on both Cloud and Aerith, as it’ll make your life much easier. Chromogger is slow but strong. You can avoid most of its attacks by dodge rolling. It’s weak to electricity / thunder. Focus on hitting the Iron Sphere (the wrecking ball in its hand) with your strongest Lightning spells until it’s Staggered, then wail on its main body with Cloud’s physical attacks (switch to Punisher Mode when it’s staggered to deal extra damage). You should only need to do this two or three times and it’ll fall. Remember that attacking its body doesn’t stagger it, you must attack its wrecking ball hand instead. When it launches an AOE attack to spray fog on the ground just run away from it.
Pick up the calling card and return to the reporter
In the area where you defeated Chromagger, head over to the desk and pick up the calling card with . You can then return automatically to Damon and after a scene, Mireille will give you 2,000 Gil.
