If you accidentally sold the Noctic’s Drain Lance and already gone from your inventory. You can reobtain this weapon again from defeating the imperial soldiers. The chances of obtaining this weapon are low, so make sure to be patient and defeat several of soldiers until you get the Noctic’s Drain Lance.
How to Find Metal Scrap for Cid
As you progress in the game, you probably encounter or lotted a Metal Scrap. If you already have this material in your inventory, you can skip this step and proceed to the next one.
If you don’t have Metal Scrap, you can find one by driving to Galdin Quay. Once you reach the area, check the diner on the dock. Look for the Coctura and face front on it, then at the right corner, you’ll notice a sparkling object beside the large plant pot.
Metal Scrap is a common material, and you can get many of this item while exploring the Final Fantasy XV.
Finishing the Quest
Once you have the Noctic’s Drain Lance and Scrap Metal, you’re good to go to complete this quest.
Drive back to Hammerhead, look for Cid and hand over the two materials.
