Nier Replicant Side Quests Guide: How to Find & Complete Every Side Quest

It won’t be a surprise to Nier: Automata fans to learn that there are an absurd number of side quests to complete in Nier Replicant. Ranging from hidden boss battles to excruciating fetch quests, they’ll keep you in the game’s world several times longer than the main story will, for better and for worse. You’re likely not made of time though, which is why you want to know how to find and complete every side quest in Nier Replicant.

How to Find and Complete every Side Quest in Nier Replicant

There are a whopping 71 side quests for you to track down and complete in Nier Replicant.

Some are easy to track down, with the NPCs having clear Quest dialogue bubbles over their heads. Others require a bit more digging and exploring in a given town, and might only trigger after you’ve completed another quest.

Not only that, but some will only appear during certain parts of the game. This means you might not be able to access certain quests after advancing the story too far; or, that you’ll need to advance the story before you can even accept the quest.

We’ve compiled a list down below containing info on where the quest-giver for each quest can be found, what needs to be done to complete it, and which part of the game it appears in. We’ll have links to specific walkthroughs for different quests too, so check them out if you still need more guidance for a given task.

In the event of new quests being added via DLC or updates, we’ll update the list accordingly.

How to Use Devola to Trigger Quests

It’s worth noting, however, that some quests might not trigger properly in Nier Replicant even if you’re looking for them at the right place and time.

If this occurs, go to the Village tavern and speak to Devola. She’ll give you leads on certain quests and even mark where they can be found on your map. In most cases, this will get the quest givers to appear properly and allow you to undertake their missions.

Hopefully this cleared up how to find and complete every side quest in Nier Replicant. For more on the game, check out our guide wiki. It has tips, tricks and info on all manner of side quests, including The Ballad of the Twins and The Missing Girl.
