Trying to complete the 'Recover the Refurbishment Materials' objective in FF7 Rebirth - all to help Johnny in the 'Saga of the Seaside Inn' quest - is a definite challenge if you don't know where to look around the ziplines. 

Thankfully, I'm here with this quick Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth guide to take you through all eight locations for the refurbishment materials in the most efficient order to get them in the game

NC-1 Zipline refurbishment material location

You'll be able to recover the first of FF7 Rebirth's refurbishment materials in the opposite direction from the Johnnys - on a zipline behind a nearby Crown Lance and Spearhawk you can fight. 

  • Afterwards, climb up the three yellow steps up the wall near where you fought the creatures
  • Then, take an almost immediate right up the ladder onto the NC-1 Zipline and the refreshment material will be right in front of you

NC-2 Zipline

The next refurbishment material is just a quick walk along the same decking where you picked up the first. Similar to the NC-1, you'll find the second bundle by the NC-2 Zipline.

Next, you'll need to zip down the NC-2 Zipline and walk straight down the sandy road before going up the climbable wall to the right. 

  • Follow the sandy road until you need to take a left at the chunky palm tree
  • Keep strolling along the beach road until you see two flights of wooden stairs on the right that you need to take up
  • Ahead, you'll spot the NC-5 Zipline with the third refurbishment material for your collection underneath

NC-6 Zipline

Do a 180-degree turnaround from the NC-5 Zipline, walk up the flight of stairs, and you'll then see what you need under the stone archway.

After reaching the top, take an immediate left and the fourth refurbishment material will be by the NC-6 Zipline. 

NC-4 Zipline refurbishment material

  • Head down the NC-6 Zipline, take a right down the stairs, then left until you reach another chunky palm tree where you'll make a right
  • Turn left again when you see pink flowers on the left side of the road and follow the grassy path up to a very tall yellow ladder
  • As you reach the top, you can nab your fifth refurbishment bundle

Once again take a zip down the NC-4 Zipline before doing a 180-degree turnaround once you reach the bottom.

  • Next, follow the small dirt path with the baby Chocobo, but walk over the small hill with pink and purple flowers onto the main road ahead
  • Follow it for about five seconds until you need to take a left up the grassy hill ramp marked by wooden planks, taking the rest of the path up to the Training Gym area
  • Take the right up the next hill and then left until you find the refurbishment material to the left of the NC-8 Zipline

Turn around from the NC-8 and walk back and straight past the Training Gym area. You'll be easily able to see the NC-7 Zipline straight ahead and the second-to-last of the refurbishment materials you'll need.

NC-3 Zipline

To recover the last of the refurbishment materials in FF7 Rebirth, take a trip down the NC-7 Zipline and then a left up the wooden stairs once you hit the bottom.

Run along the path of planks and within seconds, you'll find the final zipline, NC-3, sheltering the final bundle of refurbishment material.
