Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

1-3 Find The Code

Claire Farnworth

After completing the Moogle sidequests, teleport to Luxerion North Station to complete 1-3, 1-4 and some of 1-5 of the main quest line. Those Children of Etro have had it coming for a while and you can now administer Lightning’s brand of justice. You can collect some nice items while you’re here as well and complete another sidequest if you wish.

The first number of the code is located a short run away at the end of an alley in the Commercial District. Note, that there are a number of NPCs littered about the city that have information on where to find the numbers. They have a speech bubble above their heads if they have information. If you get information from an NPC, the area will immediately be marked with a blue ! on your map.

The first number is only a short distance away from the station. The numbers are written in the Etro alphabet.

A bit further southwest is the next number where the Residences and the Warehouse District intersect. The number is on the side of the stairs there. Run south to the South Station to find the third number. You can find it next to a phone box in a corner.

The final number is located all the way in the Warrens. They only open from midnight onwards so you may have to wait a little for the gate to open. Do some shopping and stock up on items, synthesise your abilities and just mooch around a little. When the gate opens, head to the spot to find the number on a wall next to what looks a lot like an Oracle Drive. Oh, who’s this? If you didn’t know who the Shadow Hunter was by now, then you will for certain after the cutscene.

If you talk to NPCs in the city, they offer information that then results in the location being placed on your map.

We finally have all four numbers and can open the way to the Forsaken Graveyard. Run to the blue waypoint marker and to the phone box there. Enter the numbers in grey into the boxes below to open the gate. Before you head off, make sure to equip the Electronica schema in place of Ignition because many of the enemies are weak to thunder.
