How to expand your inventory in Final Fantasy 16

One of the most important questions you need to answer when starting a new RPG like Final Fantasy 16 is how the inventory system works. Some are more generous, letting you carry unlimited items in your bottomless pockets, while others are more strict and give you limits on how much your character can hold. Clive falls into the latter category, and it won't be long before you get the dreaded message of your inventory being full when attempting to grab your next item. Thankfully there is a way to increase your carrying capacity, so here's a quick rundown of how to expand your inventory in Final Fantasy 16.



What You Need

  • Complete Weird Science quest

  • Complete the Even Weirder Science quest

How to increase your inventory

Bolstering Clive's ability to carry more items, specifically your potions and tonics, is tied to completing specific sub-quests in Final Fantasy 16. The two you're looking for are the "Weird Science" and "Even Wierder Science" quests.

Step 1: The "Weird Science" quest is available once you reached the main quest called "Out of the Shadow."

Step 2: At the Hideaway, go down into Mid's Dungeon and speak to Owain to pick up the quest.

Step 3: Collect the bomb ash for him from defeating the Bomb King and you will be rewarded with a treated potion satchel that increases your potion capacity to 6, high potions to 4, and strength and stoneskin tonics to 3.

Step 4: After going further into the story, at least until "Across the Narrow," you can start the "Even Weirder Science" quest.

Step 5: This is once again given to you from Owain, who now requires spherical echoes from three Fallen ruins.

Step 6: Track them all down and return them to him to get the expanded potion satchel that lets you hold a total of 8 potions, 5 high potions, 4 strength tonics, and 3 stoneskin tonics.

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2: release date, trailers, gameplay, and more
Miles Morales and Peter Parker stand together in Spider-Man 2.

Spider-Man is one of the most recognizable superheroes in the world. His popularity in media is hard to overstate, as he is the focus of ongoing films, comics, multiple animated series, and, of course, video games. The web-slinger has been on home consoles ever since the Atari days, and each new generation has given us better and better games. The most recent game, Marvel's Spider-Man, which paired the comic book hero with the perfect developer (Insomniac Games) to handle this acrobatic, sarcastic neighborhood hero, was a smash-hit in every respect. Critics praised it, fans loved it, and it sold like crazy. Plus, it probably was a major contributing factor in Sony's outright purchase of the studio. Naturally, we all knew a sequel had to be coming.

When the PlayStation 5 launched, we got a standalone expansion of sorts in Spider-Man: Miles Morales, which let us play as the new spider on the block in his own story. Now the focus has been set on the proper, full sequel, which looks to take everything from the original game and the expansion and combine it all into a truly amazing new Spider-Man (Spider-Men?) title. We've only had a handful of looks at the game, but we've used our spider senses to untangle all the information there is about Marvel's Spider-Man 2.
