Final Fantasy 15: how to make Gladio take his shirt off for you, and incidentally boost his strength by 200

Final Fantasy 15’s new DLC introduces Gladio’s Rugged Attire outfit, which has great stats.

Final Fantasy 15 is all about dress ups, whatever anyone says, but one of the best new outfits in the Episode Gladiolus DLC is all about doing more with less.

For some reason, the Rugged Attire outfit, which is basically just hanging around shirtless, boosts Gladio’s strength by 200 points. That’s a pretty tasty stat increase for Final Fantasy 15, and you get to look at Gladio’s sweet tatts too. He wears an open shirt by default, so this outfit change shouldn’t be too much of a shock for the poor chap.

In the video above, via Siliconera, LemonEatingKow explains how to unlock the outfit, and also shows off just how it looks in Final Fantasy 15.

What you want to do to get Gladio shirtless is to play Episode Gladiolus’s Score Attack Mode, which unlocks after you complete the main DLC story once. You’ll need to reach a score of 500,000 to get the Rugged Attire. The video contains some hints and tips on how to achieve this feat, including parries and blocks, and reserving stone pillars for bigger foes.

Good luck in your quest to get Gladio shirtless in Final Fantasy 15, which is of course motivated by sensible build decisions or completionist tendencies and not anything in any way objectifying. Right?
