Final Fantasy 7 Remake: Corneo's Secret Stash Walkthrough
So you're playing Final Fantasy 7 Remake and you've run across a few locked doors engraved with red dragons (and treasure visibly piled behind them!), and you're curious about how to get inside and pick up the loot. This guide walks you through all of the steps of the "Corneo's Secret Stash" quest in Final Fantasy 7 Remake.
Don't worry, we've got you covered. We go over how to complete the quest for the missing key and beat the Beastmaster and Hellhound, and then we'll go over each stash location.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake Corneo's Secret Stash Walkthrough
Once you've reached Chapter 14, pop on over to the Sector 5 Slums and meet up with your old pal, Damon the news reporter. He'll send you off on a quest to find a missing key.
Before doing so, you'll also want to swing by the Sector 5 Slums Train Station and grab the Tomboy Bandit quest off of Johnny. Both quests point you to the abandoned chapel, which is where you'll meet Kyrie.
After a short dialog sequence, Kyrie asks you to fight in her place at the Colosseum (underneath Wall Market) in exchange for the key that the reporter has asked you to find.
Once you reach the Colisseum, speak to the handler to enter the special battle. You'll fight the Beastmaster and the Hellhound, which are tough together but can be taken down one-by-one.
Hit the Beastmaster with regular attacks and Fire attacks. As for the Hellhound, you can quickly stagger it by hitting its red-colored flaming head with Ice magic and its purple-colored flaming head with Cure magic.
Return to Kyrie at the chapel after winning the fight, and the key to Corneo's secret stash is all yours. At this point, you can now return to Johnny to complete Tomboy Bandit as well.
Corneo Stash #1: Collapsed Expressway
As you're first entering the Caved-In Tunnel part of the Collapsed Expressway, take a left turn at the first turn-in and find the stash. This is where you'll pick up the Diamond Tiara key item as well.
Corneo Stash #2: Steel Mountain
Head over to the Steel Mountain section of the Sector 5 Slums and up the steps to the Corneo stash that you might have first spotted during Chapter 8. It's open now! Get inside and grab all the treasure, which includes a bevy of Moogle Medals and the Ruby Tiara key item.
Corneo Stash #3: Sewers
This is the trickiest one to get into. In order to do this, you'll need to progress the story forward if you haven't yet. Just head on over to Don Corneo's house and Leslie will be there waiting for you, at which point he'll run you through the Sewers again and take you where you need to go.
If you've already been through the Sewers part of the main story in Chapter 14, just pop into the Urban Advancement District and through the fenced gate, which allows you to climb back into the Sewers whenever you want during Chapter 14.
After the Mischievous Shoat boss has been beaten, you can find a flooded stairwell right past where you fought it in the Former Disposal Area part of the Old Trunk Line - Control Section.
Head to the ladder that lets you out of the Sewers (or in, depending on where you're coming from) and hit the switch next to it, draining the stairwell. Backtrack all the way to the now un-flooded stairwell and make your way inside, where you'll face off against the Sahagin Prince and his band of Ninja Turtle lookalikes.
The Sahagin Prince is similar to other Sahagins in that he'll often use Jump and Harpoon abilities to crash down on you and your buds. He'll also turn you into a frog, so make sure to have Maiden's Kiss or Remedy items, or Level 2 Cleansing Materia equipped to each party member.
As with other Sahagins, you can nail the Prince with Fire attacks. However, watch out for his counterattack mode. This is when he's easiest to stagger with Fire magic, so when he's countering you, go all-in with a heavy spell like Firaga (if you have it).
Once the Sahagin Prince and company are dispatched, loot the third treasure and return to Marle, who'll reward you with The Art of Swordplay Vol. III, which grants Cloud 10 SP.
And that's how you complete the Corneo's Secret Stash quest in Final Fantasy 7 Remake. For more Final Fantasy 7 Remake guides, check out the list below:
