Final Fantasy XV Side Quests

Final Fantasy XV Side Quests Locations Guide to help you trigger all Rescues, Broken Cars, and Photo Ops quests.

Side Quests in Final Fantasy can be found in different towns, outposts, and random locations across the land of Eos and beyond. These side quests basically require you to deliver items, helping NPCs in distress, exploring an area, and more.

For more help on Final Fantasy XV, read out our AP Farming Guide, Character Builds Guide, and Open Locked Dungeon Doors Guide.

Final Fantasy XV Side Quests

Moreover, there are some side quests which only appear during certain chapters and points in the game. You should try and complete these side quests before completing the chapter to avoid missing them.

In our Final Fantasy XV Side Quests Guide, we have detailed the locations of all Rescues, Broken Cars, and Photo Ops.

Final Fantasy XV Rescues

For these side quests, you basically need to find an individual in despair and provide them with a healing item i.e. a potion or an antidote. Completing these simple side quests provide you with decent amount of EEXP, especially in the early game.

Before tackling these side quests, you should consider stocking up on healing items. Another thing to note here is that these side quests do not appear on the world-map unless you get within the boundaries of a small invisible perimeter surrounding an NPC in despair.

Final Fantasy XV Search and Rescue

To start Search and Rescue, you need to drive to Hammerhead; near the area where Cindy and Cid have shops. The side quest basically starts when you hear someone call for help.

At this point, you basically need to open your Quest Log, get out of your vehicle, and search the designated area. As a general rule of thumb, you need to follow the voice of NPC in need of your help.

For your convenience, the NPC that you need to look for is right next to a rock deposition. Therefore, there is no need to look into areas without any rocks.

Photo Ops

This side quests basically invite you to a specific location where Prompto can take a picture to complete the quest for EXP and Gil.

Final Fantasy XV Broken Cars

In these side quests, you need to assist stranded drivers using Repair Kits. Repair Kits, in Final Fantasy XV, can be purchased from Hammerhead’s Minimart and a few other places.

I highly recommend stocking up on these Repair Kits if you wish to pursue these side quests.
