How to find quetzalcoatl talon in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth

There’s a lot to take in during the opening hours of Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth. Not only do you have an entire cast of characters to play as right away, but a fast hub world to explore. One thing you’ll get very familiar with right away is collecting resources for crafting items. These things are littered all over the world, begging to be collected. However, there are rare parts out there, such as the Quetzalcoatl Talon, that you can only get from one specific source. If you’re trying to finish the “Where the Wind Blows” side quest specifically, you’ll need this fiend’s claw to complete it, so let’s hunt it down.

The Quetzalcoatl Talon will drop only from, you guessed it, a Quetzalcoatl. Finding this beast first requires you to do some of Chadly’s legwork, specifically scanning four Lifestream Crystals in the region. Once that’s done, he will chime in and inform you that he’s located the beast in question and start the “Classified Intel: Winged Lacertillian of Yore” objective.

Pop open your map, and it will show you the spot you need to go to hunt the Quetzalcoatl. Once you arrive, hold down Triangle to trigger the encounter. Be warned that the Quetzalcoatl is level 22, so you may need to upgrade your armor before challenging it. It also flies, so characters like Cloud and Red XIII may not be much use. The Quetzalcoatl Talon is a guaranteed drop, so you just have to beat it once to finish the quest.

All Cactuar Capers locations in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth
Cactaur Caper

Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is overflowing with fun ways to interact with its world, many of which are minigames that task you with completing challenging objectives or winning games. One of the more laid-back of these minigames is Cactuar Capers, which you'll have to complete when trying to earn some beachwear in Costa Del Sol. This scavenger hunt will send you to take photos of pink Cactuars that have been painted on various objects around the town. In this guide, we'll tell you how Cactuar Capers works and where to find all of the pink Cactuars so you can get to the beach in style.
All Cactuar Capers locations
There are four pink Cactuars to find in Costa Del Sol during the Cactuar Capers scavenger hunt, and they're scattered throughout the town in various spots — with some more cleverly hidden than others. You'll need to find all four of them to complete Cactuar Capers, which can be a bit of a hassle since all you have in your possession to help with that is a map that gives you general locations.

Luckily, the Shinra executive you're teamed up with will be nearby each of the pink Cactuars commenting on how they must be in that area somewhere. This will help you discern where to look, though our photos further down below will show you precisely where the pink Cactuars are hiding.

Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth: all zipline Refurbishment Material locations
Cloud rides zipline

Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is overflowing with content, including a wide variety of side quests to undertake as you work through its 50+ hour adventure. Some of these are given to you by returning characters, such as the lovable screwup, Johnny, who has found himself entangled in a whole new mess this time around.

After finishing up some of the main story content in Costa Del Sol, Johnny will eventually task you with seeking out his clones in the Corel Region, who will grant you a quest called "The Saga of the Seaside Inn." To complete this mission at its highest tier and earn its best rewards, you'll need to round up eight Refurbishment Materials left near ziplines in the area, so check below for their locations.
Where to find all the zipline Refurbishment Materials
The two Johnnys will send you on a mission to find eight Refurbishment Materials scattered across the Corel Region near ziplines. However, it's worth noting that all these materials are found exclusively at the top of the ziplines, never at the bottom, meaning you'll need to keep an eye out above you to find them all. Luckily, we've got a map below showing you the location of each of these zipline starting points, and you can find the Refurbishment Materials in plain sight next to them.
