FFXV Dynamo Locations

Dynamo is a treasure item in Final Fantasy XV. It can be pretty tough to find, and its selling price is pretty low.

However, it can be used in A Better Bioblaster quest – if you give it to Cid, he’s going to use it and upgrade Bioblaster. This alone makes it pretty valuable, despite how Lucian traders treat it. In this guide, we’re going to show you Final Fantasy XV Dynamo Locations, to help you upgrade your machinery weapons.

If you rely on the Bioblaster, you’ll definitely want to upgrade it. The enhanced version does more damage, and it has better stats. It’s a shame that only Propmto and Noctis can use it – the former is much better when given a handgun, and it’s hard to make yourself use up a whole slot to make Noctis use it.

Final Fantasy XV Dynamo locations

The first dynamo we found was in Chapter 13, near the end of the game. It’s in the giant warehouse you visit while trying to activate the central elevator in A King’s Struggle quest. Get to the lower level of the warehouse, then go north, between the canister racks, into the dark. You’ll see a staircase leading onto a platform – climb it, and you’ll find the dynamo there.

The second one was even further, during the Cure for Insomnia quest. We found it while roaming the streets of Insomnia, looking for the Citadel entrance. It’s hidden in a transport vehicle in the south part of the map. It’s at the end of one of the broad streets, and there’s a lvl 41 Ariadne guarding it.

The third one is the easiest to get. That is, if you are able to defeat the level 54 Midgardsormr guarding the treasure. The dynamo at this location is marked as a treasure. It is found west of Lestallum and Burbost Souvenir Emporium Outpost. Just follow the river from the waterfall, until it reaches its conflux.

Note: We would like to thank Ernest, Michael, J16s2000 and others from the comment section for additional information.

Once you’ve found a dynamo, head to Cid and complete the Better Bioblaster quest. There might be more dynamos, but we haven’t found them yet. If you know of a location we haven’t included, be sure to let us know in the comments. It’s also possible there’s a merchant who sells them at some outpost, but we haven’t seen one in our travels.

    There is one near the greyshire glacial grotto , there is this triangle shape place where two lakes meet.

    I found one pretty early on in the game. Just started Chapter 2 and I’m level 12 (did a lot of sidequests). I found it while wandering the Keycatrich Ruins in the daytime. It was located on top of the cliff (forgot left or right side) just outside of the Keycatrich Trench dungeon. Attack 74. I got it when I was level 10, not sure if it is a random drop?

      That’s the bio blaster, not the Dynamo, which is what is used to upgrade the bio blaster.

    Sorry! This location is for a Bioblaster. My bad. -_-

    There is one right behind Midgardmsomr to the left of Burbost Souvenir Emporium where the two rivers meet.

      Awesome! Thank you for posting this! 🙂

      Confirmed this, Midgardmsomr is totally guarding a Dynamo treasure spot. He’s a lvl 54 enemy so be prepped for war.

        Go to Lestallum, take the Cool Callatein Mist hunt (I think you only need to be a rank 2 hunter, but maybe rank three). The hunt is right where the Dynamo is and it’s spawn takes precedence over the Midgardmsomr spawn, removing that snake and replacing it with some ice bombs as long as the hunt is active. It’s a night only hunt, so if you grab the Dynamo in the daytime you don’t have to worry about any enemies spawning whatsoever.

      I can confirm this also. Just picked it up. I went into that area to complete the hunter quest Avenge the Anglers (level 24 recommended). There were a few Albinogin, but no Midgardmsomr (he disappears for this quest). So it is possible to acquire the Dynamo and avoid the lvl 54 giant monster.

      For reference I did a lot of side quests and I am at lvl 30, but have yet to start the main quest The Sword in the Waterfall.

      i just warped right past the Midgardmsomr. Collected the dynamo and then warped right back past it.

    You can get once you reach chapter 4. While going on roads the imperials will drop the flamethrower mechs and they have a decent chance of dropping them. I’ve gotten three this way. Also i usually break one of their legs in the fight if that helps. The most common place I’ve seen them is the road between old holty ranch and wiz chocobo post, near the mineral deposit

    1. (Confirmed) Got mine from a White Mech unit that you described must be random encounter i was north of Callatean’s Plunge near campsite/ fishing spot whilst on a dog tag mission. done this mission twice first time it wasn’t a mech so … Random encounter

    There is a Dynamo at the intersection of 2 rivers near the Waterfall on the western edge of the map, diectly west of Lestallum. It is easy to get to with the “Avenge the Anglers” hunt.

  7. D

    I picked up the Dynamo without fighting the level 54 monster. The treasure is right outside the aground circle.

  8. R

    Got mine near the waterfall entrace in the quest “blade behind the waterfall” in ch 3, ifotgot the quest name hehehe

    You can also take the Avenge the Anglers Hunt Mission (Hunter Rank 3) from the Tostwell Grill in Lestallum. It will spawn 3 Albinogins the take precedence over the Midgardmsomr. It can be done at anytime of the day/night. Once you complete the bounty, run out, grab the Dynamo and get out of there quick before the Midgardmsomr spawns. I just did this myself, solid alternative to fighting that thing!

  10. D

    I just picked on up from a random magiteck armor (MA-X MANIPLE I believe) , I targeted its left hand
