Nier Replicant‘s side quests can be tricky to complete, but the ones offered in Facade are the most obtuse. One in particular, the Item Unknown quest, can be a nightmare to complete, and you wouldn’t be blamed for wanting some help figuring out what the unknown item is in Nier Replicant.
That’s why we’re here today with this guide. Here’s what you need to know.
What the Unknown Item is in Nier Replicant
The NPC who gives you the Item Unknown quest in Nier Replicant will be unable to tell you exactly what she wants.
Instead, she can only offer you a description: It’s a round, striped food, and she needs ten of them. This means the item she’s referring to is a Watermelon. It’s the only round and striped food in the game.
You can obtain 10 watermelons via two different methods. One is to purchase them from the Grocery Store in Facade. They’ll cost 800 gold apiece, meaning you’ll need a total of 8,000 gold to purchase all the Watermelons required for the quest.
The other method is to grow 10 watermelons yourself. This can be done by purchasing Watermelon Seeds from the Facade Item shop for 80 gold apiece and then planting them in the field to the right of your character’s house in Nier’s Village. While this will be significantly cheaper, it will also require more time, as plants require several hours in real-time to grow.
Use one of the two methods to acquire 10 watermelons. Once you have enough, bring them back to the quest giver and she’ll reward you with some gold.
