    • Along the walkway leading to the vending machine, on the left side, there's a chest containing 2x Hi-Potion and another chest beside the vending machine and the bench that has 1x Ether.
    • Once you're done, go back to where you got the Hi-Potion and head down the stairs and work your way through the walkway until another cutscene triggers.
    • The party decides to jump off to ride the trucks. You'll eventually reach the underground parking garage of the building and Barret and Tifa fall off the truck.
    • You'll now have to defeat a group of Elite Security Officer enemies. Once you've killed the enemies, proceed further to obtain the next main scenario.
  • Bust Out of the Garage
    • Work your way around the garage and head towards Gate-01. Here, you'll fight some Elite Security Officer and 3-C Soldier Operator soldiers.
    • After fighting them, head to the second gate and you'll encounter more Elite Security Officer and Guard Dog enemies.
    • Once you've cleared the area, before you continue forward, check the north side of the area to find a chest that has 1x Molotov Cocktail.
    • Next, go under the shutter gate and this time, you'll encounter a large group of enemies such as Guard Dog, Elite Riot Trooper, and 3-C Soldier Operator.
    • After the battle, before you leave the parking garage, check the north-east side of the area to find a chest that has 2x Mega Potion.
    • Next, exit the garage, head inside the building, and head up the escalator to reach the entrance of the building.

After checking it, another cutscene will trigger and Tifa offers to try to get through the barricaded reception area by jumping onto the hanging platforms
  • Acquiring the Keycard
    • You'll now be playing as Tifa. Jump onto the platforms and when she tries to jump off from the second platform, she'll fall onto the sofa. When you're back on the ground, head east and you'll find a corridor that has a chest at the end of it, you'll be able to collect 2,000 Gil from the chest
    • Next, head to the middle section and jump onto the car next to the motorbike. Tifa will be able to work her way around the purple colored structures.
    • Once you reach the platform that has a ladder, don't climb up yet, but instead, check the right side, there's some monkey bars that TIfa can hang onto to cross. On the other end of it, you'll find a chest containing another pair of knuckles, Purple Pain.
    • After grabbing the weapon, go back and this time, climb up the ladder and work your way around via the monkey bars until you reach the top again where the hanging platforms are.
