Where to find Hydraulic Cylinder in FFXV

One of the locations in which you can find the Hydraulic Cylinder is in the Zegnautus Keep dungeon. As you walk around the area, eventually you’ll run across a conference room, with many screens displaying flags and some kind of 3D projector in the middle. After you kill the enemies, go around the central conference table and you’ll find the item there.

The second location is marked on the map as a treasure spot. You’ll find it north of Fort Vaullerey. There is a group of level 25 Spiracorns nearby. They need to be defeated in order so you can collect the item.

Note: We would like to thank Psyborg for additional information.

If you are feeling lucky, you can test it on the MX Mech units. They drop from the Imperial Drop Ships during the night in Duscae. They are high level (70+) and hit hard.

Note: We would like to thank Addyboy and mburst for additional information.

Like many other items that are labeled as treasure items, the Hydraulic Cylinder seems to be fairly useless to the player. Other than selling it for gil, it doesn’t appear to have any purpose. Hold off the selling just yet, though. The Hydraulic Cylinder is absolutely necessary to complete the Better Gravity Well quest. Essentially, once you get this item, you should pay Cid the mechanic a visit as soon as you can. Unequip the Gravity Well if it’s equipped, then give both the weapon and the Hydraulic Cylinder to Cid. Through his amazing tinkering skills, Cid will use the Cylinder to turn the Gravity Well into an improved version called Gravity Well II. This might take some time to complete, so you’ll want to do some side questing or cruise around in the Regalia to kill some time. When you come back to pick up the finished weapon, you’ll be awarded some EXP and a more powerful weapon.

    This also drops off of one of the MX Mech Units that randomly drop in from Imperial Ships though I’ve only ever had one drop from a Level 72 Version of this unit. And it wasn’t easy as I was level 54. It took a summon from Ramuh and a lot of Curatives. Ignis was sad to lose all those precious curatives.

    Hydraulic Cylinder is a possible drop from the MAX Patria (lv 76 Mech that spawns randomly at night in Duscae from an imperial drop ship). They are pretty hard…I was lv 50ish and the fight took forever even with a Titan summon. Don’t bother raising you’re allies, that punk will spam missiles that do 9,999 dmg.

    I found a Hydraulic Cylinder in the closest treasure spot North of Fort Vaullerey (North to North-East of the parking spot by ~800ft).
