The Cloudburst is an enemy in Final Fantasy XIII-2. They are dangerous creatures elementally aligned with ice. The player should take them down as quickly as possible with attacks, preferably of the fire element, in order to prevent them from self-destructing. It is encountered in Cloudy weather (the same as when the player first enters the Steppe), often under a bridge to the western side of the far south.

Paradigm PackEdit

Cloudburst is a popular choice of Ravager in the Paradigm Pack, sometimes with its relative Debris, whose predominantly Fire and Lightning spells complement its Ice and Wind. Like its lesser relative Circuitron, its Feral Link ability is the powerful Friendly Fire, that instantly casts many enhancements on all team members. Note, however, that Friendly Fire casts Enfrost, which can reduce damage against or heal opponents strong against Ice. It lacks the basic Blizzard spell. Its low Strength makes the alternative, Froststrike, less likely to do good damage. The Froststrike and Auto-Enfrost combination strikes multiple enemies with Ice damage, in the same way that Blitz does with physical, only twice as fast (only one segment for Froststrike, two for Blitz). It requires 66 Grade 3 Mechanical (Engine) monster materials to get to level 20; 37 Grade 4 (Booster) materials to get to 40.

A cloudburst is an extreme amount of precipitation, sometimes with hail and thunder, which normally lasts no longer than a few minutes but is capable of creating flood conditions. Colloquially, the term cloudburst may be used to describe any sudden heavy, brief, and usually unforecast rainfall.
