Where to find all the Cactuar rocks in Corel in FF7 Rebirth

While you’re doing the Corel Protorelic Intel in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirthyou will have to find these stone sculptures from Cactuar around the area. Although you are given a small statue to point you in the right direction, these can be tricky to find, especially as the site has many cliffs and caves

Please note that you can only complete two of the Protorelic objectives initially. After you complete the first two, the related NPC will tell you that he will contact you when you can do the others. Towards the end of Chapter 12 you will be able to complete the last two Protorelic sites.

When you reach each Protorelic area, you must immediately find a Cactuar-shaped stone in the desert to open the door to the cacti-covered reactor. We provide details below where to find all the Cactuar Rocks in the Corel Desert Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth.

You don’t have to climb up in any specific way to get to this Cactuar Rock. From the north you can walk up a naturally formed slope. Walk around the machine and go straight to the marked location above it.

Cactuar Rock #2 location

To get to the second Cactuar Rock, you need to approach it from the cliff west of the rock. You can climb the cliff using yellow ledges if you approach the cliff from the south (marked by a star on the map above). Once you climb up, you can use your grappling hook to get over the gap onto more yellow ledges, which will lead you to the rock.

Cactuar Rock #3 location

If you teleport directly to the Scrapyard Prison Cell (where you found Dyne), leave the scrapyard and head right, towards the area marked above. Right in front of you you can see the glow of the cactus rock in that big hole. To get in there, walk to the left of the hole, along the edge, and follow the path. You’ll need to climb down and then up some yellow ledges, but if you follow this path you’ll come straight to Cactuar Rock.

Cactuar Rock #4 location

The last Cactuar Rock is located on the peninsula portion of the eastern Corel Desert. To get to the cliff with the rock on it, go to where the star marker is on the map above. You’ll see yellow ledges where you can climb up a cliff and if you follow the path straight (which involves more grappling and cliff climbing action) you’ll reach the rock.
