How To Wake Up The Dead Businessmen

While you are exploring the Grasslands and trying to gather World Intel for Chadley, you will come across a group known as Beck’s Badasses. This group of bandits has gotten their hands on a Protorelic that Chadley needs in order to gain more World Intel for you. You will continuously need to track this group down from area to area, trying to obtain the Protorelic. Once you have finally chased them to the last area, you will find them in a warehouse. Here, they are pretending to be dead and you need to wake them up. No matter how many times you swing your sword around or walk around the warehouse, you won’t be able to wake them up. If you’re having trouble with this quest, turn back towards the entrance of the warehouse and look for a switch.

Where Is The Switch?

If you’re having trouble locating this switch, it may be easier to completely leave the warehouse and walk back in. Once you do, you will see it over to your right. If you flip the switch, the crate above the bandits will fall, waking them up. This will allow you to finally complete this quest and obtain the Protorelic (for 2,000 Gil at least).

It is worth it to pay Beck the 2,000 Gil.
