Strategy and Usage
In Marches, Prompto provides benefits to Ranged Troops and increased Metal Gathering Speed. Prompto’s Ranged Troop benefits increase when you upgrade a Skill, and Metal Gathering Speed increases when you increase his Star Rank. Use him when you want your Ranged Troops to shine, or when you’re in need of additional Metal!
In Party Encounters, Prompto is a precise Ranged Attacker Hero that guns his foes down from afar. His high Accuracy and Damage make him lethal when properly protected - make sure to place him on your back line!
- Prompto’s Alea Bazooka is a powerful Technique that hits multiple enemies at once. The extra Burn damage works well with Noctis’ Engine Blade by increasing the entire Party’s Critical Chance against Burnt enemies. It can also be used in tandem with Ignis’ Mark Technique - Mark your opponents and then BLAST them for maximum damage with the Alea Bazooka!
- Prompto should always be on your back line. He’s most effective when he can stand in the back and use his ranged abilities.
- Photographer’s Eye is a great tool for weakening your opponents’ overall Defense - when upgraded, inflict Compromised on your enemies and watch your Party tear them apart!
