Final Fantasy 13-2 Fragments Locations Guide – Defragmented

By   /   Jan 30, 2012


You can unlock Defragmented achievement/trophy in Final Fantasy 13-2 by collecting 160 Fragments. It feels like an overwhelmingly difficult task but don’t worry, Historia Cruz will help you keep tabs on number of fragments you have collected and Blue Gates you have opened in each area.

We will also point-out fragment locations for each map in our upcoming guide series if this guide doesn’t help you. Our focus in this guide is to give you hints and let you explore the World of Final Fantasy instead of pin-pointing location of every fragment.

Historia Cruz will pin-point Blue Gates that are needed to be opened and you can open the Blue Gates by using Artifacts you will collect throughout the main story. You can refer to our Artifacts Locations guide to find all these artifacts required to open these blue-gates.

Your Moogle will also help you locate these fragments by shouting ‘KUPOPOPO~!!’ and flying towards the fragments whenever you are close to them.

There are several general rules that you need to remember when it comes to finding these Fragments. Look for them everywhere in the open; you will need Moogle Hunt, Moogle Throw or sometimes both for this. Look for them in treasure boxes and chests.

You will be rewarded with few fragments when you complete quests, defeat bosses, or help NPCs by completing side-quest. Always look for NPCs with ‘Speech Bubble’ above their head and talk to them. They may have a fragment mission for you. Some missions may require you to visit past, present and future so be ready for that.

Complete Time Labyrinth missions to get fragments as a reward. Oerba Village/Mt. Yaschas are an ideal place for you to look for such missions. It is no-brainer that you will need to explore almost every corner of Final Fantasy 13-2 if you want to collect these fragments.

If you are searching each location thoroughly, you should be able to collect around 120+ of these fragments easy, rest deserve a mention because they are difficult to locate. Most of these difficult to spot fragment missions are in City of Academia.

Note-worthy quests among these are 100% Enemy Report (requires you to engage every monster, around 200) and 100% Map Completion (requires you to discover all locations in each map). You can refer to our FF13-2 Side Quests Guide for more details on these quests.

Most of his questions are about Final Fantasy 13-2 and Final Fantasy 13 but he can throw some general Final Fantasy questions as well.

If you are fan of the franchise you should be fine answering these questions but don’t worry if you aren’t, you have infinite tries to beat him. Add to that, these questions are pretty random and get repeated, just pay attention and remember your answer.

Only thing you should be concerned about is Finding Daddy Bear in City of Academia. In any case be it finding Daddy Bear or answering his questions, you can refer to our Daddy Bear Locations and Quiz Guide.
