Scattered Cargo Crate Locations 


NieR can: 

  • Pick it up without looking inside 
  • Pick it up and look inside 


Pick it up without looking inside

NieR: "The client requested that I don't look inside" 
Grimoire Weiss: "A wise choice. Rifling through the possessions of others is a vulgar habit."

NieR will not be given any more decisions, so the next step would be to return the cargo to the old lady and claim the reward when you deliver the cargo.

  • Return the cargo to the old lady and the quest will end



Pick it up and look inside

NieR: "Unlabeled medicine bottles? ... And three's some kind of white powder inside"
Grimoire Weiss: "Ho!  Given how carefully they were packed, I doubt we are dealing with sugar!
Grimoire Weiss: " A tremendous cache of illegal goods and dangerous materials! I'd wager my title page that our client is a smuggler."
