Starting Location: The Price of Thievery
Warning: This Side Quest requires specific choices in Chapter 9, see the requirements listed above and replicate them exactly. If you make different choices you get two alternate quests instead A Dynamite Body, The Party Never Stops (click on them for their requirements). These optional quests are also needed for the “Best in the Business” trophy, which you can do after the story in chapter select. Since they cancel out the alternate Chapter 9 quests you can only do one or the other on the 1st playthrough.
Head to the Expressway Tunnel and kill the bandits
Head south to Evergreen Park, then north through the expressway tunnel to confront the bandits. It’s yet another showdown against the Beck trio and also a Grungy Bandit who they’ve brought along. Just like before, these guys pose almost zero threat and you can dispatch them with ease.
Return to Mireille
You automatically return to Mireille and you obtain the ‘Real Calling Card’ and have your HP and MP restored.
This finishes The Price of Thievery side quest in Final Fantasy VII Remake. Now the mission Shears’ Counterattack becomes available.
Important for Best in the Business Trophy: To get this quest you must ignore the Johnny Discovery Event in Chapter 9 Wall Market which locks you out of the 2 alternate Side Quests The Party Never Stops, A Dynamite Body. After the story you unlock Chapter Select and can get these 2 alternate quests via chapter select without having to replay the entire game. Once you did all 26 side quests you get trophy “Best in the Business”. You can’t get all 26 side quests in a single playthrough.
