This is where you share your favorite FFVIII trick/glitch.

My favorite trick is getting punishment (squalls 2nd to last weapon) before you even do the SEED test.

Another good one is the 400+ AP trick when you fight the robotic spider thing during the SEED test.

My favourite trick has to be the CC Group in CD4. It's not exactly a trick by itself, but potentially it can make the whole game a breeze without much effort.

Card Mod Gilgamesh & Laguna cards, win them back from CC Group members, repeat. Infinite invincibility items, you can't ask for anything more.

I don't really have a favourite glitch, probably because there are so few that you notice without actually searching for them. It'll be a while before I can remember one though.

I had this friend greg that would search for hours and hours on end for glitches all over the world map. I was like "dude are you crazy?" the answer is yes.

card mod. get the chef knives from the tonberry card, screws from geezard card, star fragments from iron giant card, adamantite from adamantoise card. you can get all these cards in balamb garden at the start of the game. Fight Fastitocalans down by the water near garden to get the AP for card mod.

quote sniggit
adamantite from adamantoise card
The item you need is Turtle Shell, but the process is the same nonetheless. Adamantoise Cards.

A pretty good chance to get Punishment so early.

oh oops yea thats what I meant sorry about that. Punishment plus you have strength plus 40% and 60% right after the test. Squalls strength and HP are capped by the time I get to the second disk.

My favourate trick was a triple heelflip 360 on my hoverboard!!!

I'm going to try get the lion heart on the first disc so I guess that would be a good glitch, also the card modding infinity rare items from the CC group on the ragnorak is one of my favourates.

My friend roger and I spent like 5 hours trying to figure out how to get lionheart on disc 1. There was always 1 little thing stopping us from getting a certain item. I think it may be impossible... but i'm no expert

Here is a thread that could help you on that.

Lion Heart can be obtained in CD1, it's just not really worth the effort in my opinion.

it takes about 5 hours including getting the AP for card mod and getting all the cards you need. the iron giant and adamantoise cards can take a while. you can get them easiest from the trepies in the second floor classroom. For the card mod AP fight fastitocalan-Fs down by the beach right outside Balamb garden.

Money trick.
Refining 100 Tents to 25 Mega-Potions and selling them.
Doing that a few times gives you a lot of money and it can be even more with Tonberrys abilities.
