    FYI, when the Zolom tail whips a character, it does it to the character who has dealt the most damage to him, if you're trying to learn Beta.

    A trick to kind of cheesing it: It can be poisoned with Bio magic. It will still whip you away while you wait for the DoT to work, but the Bio doesn't trigger him using Beta.

    I got the achievement but the Midgar Zolom didn't use Beta, sad.

    Easy fight. Just takes a few tries, cause of ATB being stupid sometimes.Elemental materia on armor linked with fire. Use tranquilizers on your party, all in back row, have everyone but your enemy skill user cast attack spells. When he uses beta, quickly heal and cast beta twice for the kill. Level 16.

    The easiest way to get the achievement is to use Barret's "Mindblow" to drain out all of his MPs. Without them he will not be able to use "Beta", and it will be an easy win!

    That is true, but you don't get beta that way.

    What about getting it later? Anyway, I don't think at this stage of the game you can survive that attack. And I'm not sure that you can learn it if dying.

    I think you can learn it if you die. A good way to mitigate the damage of Beta would be with a fire-elemental material combo. But its also MUCH easier to get the skill later on in the game when you'd have more health to just tank the attack

    Read what I said a bit above. It's how you get early beta.

    hmmmm I've killed him twice and no such luck unlocking it.

    EDIT - Im using Duckstation

    I found it easy enough to beat him at level 15 by keeping everyone in the back row defending, and then use Bio. With poison only damage, I found he did not whip me away or use Beta.

    Got the achievement, reloaded a previous save and then crossed the marsh, so I can get Beta later on.

    If you want to cross the marsh and you cant be bothered getting a chocobo, run across the marsh as straight as possible. When the zolom gets close, save the game and reset. When you load the game, the zolom will load to the other side of the marsh, and you can runs straight to the cave.
