Scraps Of Mystery is one of these side quests in Final Fantasy XV, and they’re not easy to find: they only appear on your map when you’re standing next to them, and as such they are essentially impossible to actively search for unless you know the explicit location.
Once you enter into a specific area, individual “Mystery Maps” will trigger the Scraps Of Mystery quests on your map, without directly telling you where to look. If you select a Mystery Map as your active quest, you’ll notice a search proximity guide giving you a rough idea of where to look. Outside of that, however, you’re on your own.
In this guide, will help you find what are arguably Final Fantasy XV‘s toughest-to-find collectibles. It’s worth noting that one map piece requires two pieces of scrap in order to complete. This guide must be completed in order: Generally, scrap 1 needs to be found to match the unlock condition for scrap 2.
