Final Fantasy 16 offers more freedom to explore and track down hunts once it incorporates the Hunting Board feature with Notorious Marks. As players progress through the story, new and more difficult hunts will become available.

One facet that makes Notorious Marks even more difficult is that they don’t get a map marker and must be located by reading the description on the Hunting Board. This guide covers finding and hunting down the Dread Comet Chocobo Notorious Mark.

On the bright side, Dread Comet Chocobo doesn’t have a Will Gauge. This makes the fight considerably more accessible since the only bar that needs to be depleted is the red health one. Another positive aspect of this boss fight is that the Dread Comet’s moveset is limited to 4 moves. The bad news is that it will use these four moves relentlessly, so learning them all is advisable.
